According to the The Mail on Sunday, the Blues are plotting a late transfer window raid for the 27-year-old, whose contract runs out at the Emirates at the end of this coming season.
Ramsey recently revealed he was hoping to renew his current terms with the Gunners but it remains to be seen where he fits into Unai Emery’s plans moving forward.
On paper, at least, it appears as though Arsenal might be tempted to cash in.
As for Chelsea, the Blues want to follow the acquisition of Jorginho from Napoli with further reinforcements in the middle of the park.
The towering 23-year-old centre-back, who impressed for Colombia in the World Cup, has struggled to settle at the Camp Nou since his arrival in January and failed to break into the first-team picture on a regular basis.
Everton had been linked with Mina but he is thought to prefer a move to United as the Red Devils prepare to conjure up a £35 million offer.
That sum is lower than Barcelona’s £50million asking price, nevertheless, the Spanish giants could be happy to get the former Palmeiras man off the books.
Mina would add significant robustness to Jose Mourinho’s defence at a time when their hopes of signing Leicester Harry Maguire begin to fade.
Barcelona face competition from Serie A giants Inter Milan in the race to sign young French midfielder Lucien Agoume.
According to France Football, the 16-year-old talent, who is part of Sochaux’s Under-19 side, is on the radar of the Blaugrana after impressing in the Ligue 1 side’s youth ranks.
Reportedly, Sochaux have already turned down a number of lucrative offers for Agoume and want to keep him until he at least makes his first-team bow.
But Barcelona are planning for the future and could be keen to wrap-up a deal quickly.
Ernesto Valverde’s men have also been linked with acquiring the services of West Ham teenager Domingos Quina for a nominal fee.
