Richarlison ‘wants Chelsea move over Real Madrid deal’, Blues ‘LEAD De Ligt race’, Kounde to undergo surgery
HELLO CHELSEA FANS
Chelsea have exercised the option to extend Billy Gilmour’s contract for 12 months.
The 21-year-old Scot’s contract at Stamford Bridge now runs until 2024.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are considering a swoop for Wolves full-back Rayan Ait-Nouri.
Ait-Nouri would provide competition and cover for Ben Chilwell in the left-back slot at Stamford Bridge.
Moreover, the Blues are reportedly dreaming of signing Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus this summer.
But getting him away from Juve won’t be easy.
That’s because the Old Lady plans to build their defense around De Ligt, according to the Chelsea Chronicle.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are believed to be confident they can land Ousmane Dembele and Jules Kounde in a double transfer.
Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is keen on the winger and followed him last season.
And the club’s new owner, Todd Boehly, is ready to provide the funds to help Tuchel’s wishes come true, according to Give Me Sport.
Along with Dembele, the Blues are set to complete the signing of Kounde from Sevilla for £68.5m, the report adds.
Finally, Nemanja Matic landed in Italy ahead of his free transfer from Manchester United to Roma.
He is due to reunite with former Chelsea and United manager Jose Mourinho in the capital for the third time.
Matic was pictured arriving at Ciampino Airport in Rome earlier today, where he was only too happy to wave to the camera.
