‘He’s An Amazing Prospect Tbh’ ‘Lol He’s Awful’ Fans Discuss Chelsea’s Pursuit Of Uruguayan Stopper

Chelsea are interested in signing Barcelona centre-back Ronald Araujo, according to reports in the Spanish media.

The Uruguayan international has just eighteen months left on his contract at the Camp Nou and Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is believed to be a big fan of the player.

Supporters on Twitter had a mixed reaction to the story, with some believing he would be an excellent addition to the squad, while others were far less enthusiastic:

Araujo is only 22 years of age but he has firmly established himself as a regular starter for Barca over the past year or so. Chelsea are not the only club keeping tabs on the player’s contract situation, though, with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United having also been linked in the English press over the last few days.

In terms of Chelsea’s interest, a new defender is likely to be on the club’s agenda, with four centre-halves (including Antonio Rudiger) having deals that expire at the end of the season.
