Chelsea have been linked with Flamengo youngster Matheus Franca.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has exclusively spoken to GIVEMESPORT, Chelsea have looked to target some of the best youngsters, and they’ve now held discussions to sign one more player.
Todd Boehly is making his focus on young talents and he is planning to invest more in the summer transfer window. In the last two windows, the Blues owner invested over £600m on new signings.
Chelsea had a tough season in 2022/23 as they finished in the bottom half of the Premier League. They failed to qualify for any European competition.
Chelsea signed Angelo Gabriel, Christopher Nkunku, and Nicolas Jackson this summer. They also off-loaded few players to gain some funds. They sold £220m worth of players already.
Mauricio Pochettino will take charge at Stamford Bridge heading into the new campaign. He has set his priority ahead of the season. Chelsea are on pre-season tour and recently beat Brighton in club-friendly.
Chelsea have been linked with Flamengo youngster Matheus Franca. The Blues have submitted an offer to sign him. Romano has suggested that the Blues have held discussions with Flamengo regarding the signing of Franca.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, he said: “This is why Chelsea have had some conversations with Flamengo to ask about the conditions of the deal.
“Then, when Flamengo asked for €25m (£22m) after they already spent €15m (£13m) on Angelo Gabriel, Chelsea were not so convinced about spending that big amount of money on a player who was probably going to try a new experience on loan, before being a player for the first team.”
Journalist Dean Jones has recently told GIVEMESPORT that Chelsea are also pushing to sign Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo.
