Chelsea eye Wolves star who is boyhood fans of the Blues
A number of transfer updates surrounding Premier League powerhouse Chelsea have emerged recently.
The first of these surrounding Wolves defender, Max Kilman.
According to Goal citing talkSPORT, Wolves star Max Kilman has emerged on Chelsea’s transfer radar.
The Blues have been scouting the 24-year-old, who is a boyhood Chelsea fan, in recent weeks and will consider a swoop for his services in the summer.
Kilman has made 24 Premier League appearances for Wolves this term and has played a key role in Bruno Lage’s side boasting a solid defensive record.
The Midlands-based outfit have conceded just 18 in 24 this term – a record only bettered by Manchester City and equalled by Chelsea.
Wolves, like Chelsea, are also avid users of the three/five-back formation, so that would likely help Kilman integrate into Tuchel’s system.
Chelsea eye Raphinha
Elsewhere on the Chelsea front, they have been linked with Leeds United standout, Raphinha.
As per Gianluigi Longari, Chelsea are leading FC Barcelona in the summer race for the South American.
Chelsea are set for a very busy summer market and have earmarked Raphinha as the ideal player to strengthen their attack.
The west Londoners have also already held talks with the entourage of Raphinha, who is said to be open to joining the European champions.
It is added that Raphinha has now plans to sign a new Leeds deal and that if Leeds are relegated, his release clause is just €25m. If the Whites stay up, however, it is claimed that his release clause is €75m.
