Chelsea are seriously looking for Ben Chilwell replacement which saw them being linked a move for PSG man Layvin Kurzawa, MySportPlug reporting.
The talk for a new wingback hasn’t been that easy after Chelsea confirmed Ben Chilwell will be out for the rest of the season following an injury which lead to him carrying out a surgery to make sure he doesn’t go down with same problem again.
The Blues are currently on the market for a temporary solution which has seen them explore many options including a move for Paris Saint Germain player Layvin Kurzawa who played with Thomas Tuchel during his time as their manager where he moved from to England.
Chelsea were earlier linked with a move for newly signed Aston Villa man Lucas Digne who eventually didn’t make the switch as he instead opted for another side as the London club weren’t looking for a permanent deal to happen this January window.
Layvin Kurzawa is the new man who is making headlines concerning a possible to Chelsea which immediately escalated all over top website who claimed talks were already going on for a move to happen this January as they are nearing deadline.
The player had spell together with Thomas Tuchel who was then the manager of Paris Saint Germain which saw him being amongst the players the German International prefer to start in every game which has now seen them being linked together to work again.
Although according to reports reaching us from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, he confirmed that there has been no talks despite what other top websites has been saying since the last 24 hours which they claimed things are already going advance.
HERE IS WHAT HE SAID:
“Chelsea have not opened talks with Paris Saint-Germain or representatives for Layvin Kurzawa. Been told there’s nothing serious or advanced as of today.’
“Kurzawa has chances to join Premier League clubs in January but still no negotiations with Chelsea.’
The Blues are still exploring their options for any possible switch which also linked them with a move for Barcelona player Sergino Dest who is also open to the option of making a move elsewhere after being dropped by new manager Xavi Hernandez who recently took over things.
Chelsea want a low fee move which also won’t be a permanent one knowing fully well once the likes of Reece James and Ben Chilwell make their return it will be leaving them with five wing back which won’t be possible to manage knowing how big the squad is.
There are so many players that would be on their roaster when the season comes to an end with them also looking to create space for other names who will be staying with the club after their successful loan move elsewhere which is already looking good for the team.
The likes of Billy Gilmour and Connor Gallagher both top the list of player likely to stay next season as well as Armando Broja who has been remarkable since joining Southampton on a loan move which has been one of the best decisions made by both the player and Chelsea.
The option of bringing back Emerson Palmieri from Lyon has been turned down three times by the club who have him on loan until the end of the season, but the Blues are exploring other options which could see them pay to have him back this January window.
A €4 million fee is expected to be brought forward by the Champions of Europe who will be hoping that would be enough compensation for any inconvenience they may cause forcing the Italian to return to Stamford Bridge where his badly needed by Thomas Tuchel for the rest of the season.
