JOSE MOURINHO is reportedly plotting a double transfer swoop on Chelsea as he eyes up a pair of outcasts.
The Roma boss has already reunited with Chris Smalling from Manchester United and plucked both Tammy Abraham and Romelu Lukaku from the Blues after taking the Serie A job.

And now Calciomercato report he wants another two men from his former employers at Stamford Bridge.
It is understood Mourinho has identified both Trevoh Chalobah and Malang Sarr as transfer targets.
Neither player has even managed to make it into a matchday squad this season under new boss Mauricio Pochettino.
England Under-21 ace Chalobah, 24, has been sidelined by a thigh injury while fellow centre-back Sarr continues to be overlooked.
Chalobah came through the academy but there are suggestions he is being “forced out” of the club – with Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Thomas Tuchel’s Bayern Munich all monitoring his situation.
Sarr, 24, does not even have a squad number and was left out of the Premier League squad but did not get sent out on another loan – after heading to Porto and Monaco in recent seasons since his free arrival from Nice in 2020.
Instead, Poch has preferred the likes of Axel Disasi, Thiago Silva and Levi Colwill.
Wesley Fofana also remains unavailable due to injury while Benoit Badiashile and Bashir Humphreys both have one Carabao Cup appearance.
Roma sit seventh in Serie A – 13 points adrift of leaders Inter – but are well in contention of the Champions League places.
Mourinho has tended to go with a back three of Gianluca Mancini, Diego Llorente and Evan Ndicka this term.
Smalling only has three appearances this term but the possible additions of Sarr and Chalobah could suit the out-of-favour Chelsea duo – especially in a three-man defence.
