Manu Kone of Borussia Monchengladbach is being watched by Chelsea
The 22-year-old had a stellar season in the Bundesliga and is now among the most intriguing young midfielders in Europe. After a string of outstanding performances for Monchengladbach over the past several years, Kone has been extensively connected with moves away from the club.
Kone might be permitted to depart during the summer transfer window for about £26 million, according to reports. According to a recent 90min report, Kone has been scouted by Chelsea, Liverpool, and Newcastle United at various points this season.
According to journalist Christian Falk’s CaughtOffside blog, the teenage midfielder has previously admitted that Didier Drogba, a former Chelsea forward, is one of his all-time favourite players. Falk also states that Kone fantasises about moving to Chelsea and Real Madrid, and given that the former now has a loaded midfield, the Blues might believe they are in a better position to land him.
Even though it may seem like Chelsea has a lot of midfielders at Stamford Bridge right now, N’Golo Kante’s contract expires at the end of the current campaign, Denis Zakaria was only signed on a loan, and Simon Phillips recently indicated to GIVEMESPORT that Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Conor Gallagher might leave the team. Italian media sites have compared Kone to Paul Pogba, so Chelsea supporters may have reason to cheer. Prior to the summer transfer window, Romano claimed that Chelsea was monitoring Kone, but they weren’t the only team doing so.
The Blues definitely have a lot of players that can play in midfield, as was already said, but there’s a significant potential that some will leave at the conclusion of the year. Kone is an outstanding midfielder who possesses both defensive prowess and skill with the ball in his hands. Kone has an 87% pass accuracy rate in the Bundesliga, according to Sofascore, and he also averages 2.5 tackles and 7.4 duels won per game.
