‘Might Be Worth It Just To Screw Over Sevilla’ ‘Get Him Fast’ Fans React As Chelsea Eye Move For 42M Rated Defender

Chelsea have joined the likes of Sevilla and Manchester United in pursuing Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile, according to reports in the French media.

The 21-year-old is believed to be a longstanding target for the Blues, and he could be available for around €50m (£42m) this summer.

Ironically, it appears Sevilla are trying to recruit Badiashile as a replacement for Jules Kounde and some Chelsea fans on Twitter feel that the London club should try and get one over on their Spanish rivals:

At the moment, it is believed that PSG’s Presnel Kimpembe is the primary target to strengthen the left-sided centre-back position but it’s likely that Badiashile is on the list of backup options.

The Blues have run into a number of difficulties recruiting defenders this summer, with deals for Matthijs de Ligt and Kounde having fallen through following interest from other teams. However, manager Thomas Tuchel is thought to be determined to land at least two more centre-halves before the transfer window closes.
