Chelsea will need to flex their "financial muscles" as they seek to snatch Pachuca rising star Jurgen Damm.

The 21-year-old Mexican national has been receiving attention from European clubs after making an impact for the Primera Division side, using his speed on the right flank that produced 3 goals and 3 assists.

Club vice-president Andres Fassi would like the youngster to stay, but admitted that an offer by the Blues might prove hard to resist.

"Yes, there is interest, but we have to see how much they are interested," Fassi told The Mirror.

"In principle, we have a sporting plan for Jurgen and we hope he stays. But if something comes up from abroad, we have to take it into account; and if it's serious, we have to respond."

"We will have news in the next 48 hours."

"When it comes to us, it's a matter of sporting project. We want him to stay and we will see how much Chelsea are interested."

"There is a belief they arrive in Mexico on Thursday to talk with us."

Jose Mourinho has pledged in the past that his squad will undergo an overhaul this offseason to bring back the glory to Stamford Bridge in the 2014/15 campaign.
