The London giants are reportedly in advanced talks to seal a transfer move for Real Madrid defender Sergio Reguilon. The deal could either be on loan from the La Liga champions or a permanent move for around €25m.
Chelsea could do with strengthening at left-back this summer, and Spain international seems a fine talent after impressing on loan at Sevilla in the season just gone.
It might be risky for Real to let Reguilon go after his fantastic form, but it seems he might not be a player likely to get into Zinedine Zidane’s first-team any time soon.
Blues will hope to take advantage, with he also linking the west London giants strongly with him earlier today, though they also claimed Everton had made an offer for the footballer.
Blues have long been linked with Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell as an upgrade on the likes of Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri, but he might be too expensive at around £80m.
Reguilon could make sense as a cheap alternative and this looks like it could end up being a smart piece of business for Chelsea.
