Cape Town - Jose Mourinho is interested in bringing Atletico Madrid's star midfielder, Koke, to Stamford Bridge in the summer, according to reports.

Mourinho is willing to offer Filipe Luis in a player plus cash deal for Koke, reports AS.

The "Special One" will have a difficult time trying to lure Koke to London with the club unwillingly to part with one of their star players.

Koke signed a contract extension last season and reportedly has a release clause in the region of €60 million.

Mourinho has attending several of Koke's La Liga outings in recent times and hopes that by allowing Luis to return to Atletico, it may tempt Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone into parting ways with one of the country's best young players.

The 23-year-old midfielder is highly-rated in Europe with several top clubs having been linked with an interest in the past two seasons, including Barcelona and both Manchester clubs.
