Here is your Chelsea morning digest on Saturday, May 14.

Ivan Perisic offer

Chelsea have reached an initial agreement with winger Ivan Perisic over a move to Stamford Bridge in the summer. That’s according to Italian outlet Sportsmediaset, which reports that the Croatian is set to leave Inter Milan at the end of the season as a free agent.

The 33-year-old plays on the left, which means he could operate on the wing as a forward or as a left-wing-back.

Mateo Kovacic injury update

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed that Mateo Kovacic could yet play a part in Saturday’s FA Cup final against Liverpool. It comes after the midfielder had to be substituted against Leeds in midweek following a horror challenge from Daniel James.

“We have tried today, which is pretty surprising that we are even in the situation to try it, but Mateo wants to try it, and the medical department gave the green light to try it,” the Chelsea head coach said.

“The ligament is already torn from the last incident, so there is no new injury, but he is in heavy pain, and it’s heavily swollen, so we’re hoping time is maybe enough that he makes it. We will try it in two and a half hours in training, and we’ll know more about it. “

Thiago Silva’s Chelsea dream

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has claimed that winning a trophy at Wembley would be a “dream come true” ahead of the FA Cup final against Liverpool on Saturday. The Brazilian was part of the team that lost in the final last season against Leicester City.

Discussing the desire to win it this time, he said: “Wembley is known around the world for being the home of the English football team – it has a status like the Stade de France and the Maracana. It’s a privilege to play in these stadiums and, obviously, it would be an amazing thing to win there. I’ve lost finals there against Leicester and Liverpool, and those are not great memories. To return to Wembley and win a trophy would be another dream come true. “
