Transfer: Chelsea’s top striker agrees to swap deal to bring De Ligt from Juventus

Published

Chelsea striker, Timo Werner is in agreement with the club as they are ready to tempt Juventus into selling defender, Matthijs de Ligt by offering him (Werner)as part of the deal.

The Blues are now ready to kick-off and ramp up their transfer activity in the coming weeks.

Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen have left the club already and the club are looking to strengthen the defence.

The Blues have shown interest in Sevilla’s Jules Kounde and came within a whisker of signing him last summer.

Now the 23-year-old Kounde has slipped down manager Thomas Tuchel’s wishlist with Barcelona now appearing to be the centre-half’s most likely destination.

Tuchel’s side are now focusing their attention on signing De Ligt who is reported to have told the Italian giants he wants to leave this summer after three years in Turin.

Sky Italy reports that Chelsea are willing to pay €45m and use German striker, Wener as part of the deal.

Werner is largely seen as a disappointment at Chelsea since after joining from RB Leipzig and has struggled to nail down a regular starting place under both Tuchel and his predecessor Frank Lampard.

And the Germany international is said to be keen on moving to Juventus and would accept a lower wage.

Aubameyang wins league title despite playing just 8 minutes

Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has become a league champion this season.

This is despite the Gabon international playing just eight minutes of football.

Aubameyang was recognised as part of LaLiga champions Barcelona’s title-winning squad despite the former Borussia Dortmund star being a Chelsea player since last summer.

The Catalans were handed the Spanish top-flight title on Sunday after a 4-2 win at Espanyol.

The African star was part of Xavi’s side at the very start of the season before he joined Chelsea and came off the bench for a late cameo in their opening game against Rayo Vallecano.

In the top flight of English football, players need to have made a minimum of five league appearances to be considered a member of the title-winning squad.

But in Spain and elsewhere in Europe that is not the case, meaning that Aubameyang’s eight minutes game for Barca are all he needed to be crowned a champion this term.

Aubameyang has endured a dreadful season at Stamford Bridge, having scored just three goals in 21 appearances.
