Chelsea identifies Brest defender Bradley Locko as valuable target for summer

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall of Leicester City has made an offer to join Chelsea. Chelsea contacted the 25-year-old midfield player to express interest in joining them, but no offer has been made, according to information The Athletic received on Thursday. However, as new manager Enzo Maresca is eager to work with a player he handled at Leicester, the West London team has now made a request for the Englishman to join their newly promoted Premier League rivals.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Chelsea has brought up striker Armando Broja, forward David Datro Fofana, and midfielder Cesare Casadei, who was on loan at Leicester last season, as potential makeshifts in the deal. Dewsbury-Hall is worth around £35 million to Leicester, who are under pressure to sell to satisfy profit and sustainability requirements.

Romano continues by saying that Dewsbury-Hall, whose contract at the King Power Stadium expires in June 2027, is keen to sign with the West Londoners following the breakdown of a comparable swap agreement with Brighton. It won’t be a straight trade, even if a deal with Chelsea is finalized. Dewsbury-Hall, an academy graduate, will cost Leicester City money, which will be recorded as pure profit in the books.

For example, if Dewsbury-Hall, an academy product that is recorded for almost nothing, is sold for £40 million, Leicester will receive the entire profit right away. Just one-fifth of the £15 million that Casadei would cost the Foxes if he signed a five-year contract would be included in this year’s financial statements.
