Transfer News: Chelsea get a boost in pursuing Eduardo Camavinga

Chelsea have received a boost in pursuing Eduardo Camavinga, according to Football.london transfer news. The French teenager has been linked with Chelsea for a while but no discussions have been held about it.

The 18-year-old defensive midfielder made his appearance in 2019 and had a spectacular season with Rennes, qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.

However, the Ligue 1 team struggled to play at the same level this season. And after the sacking of coach Julian Stephan, who played a crucial role in Camavinga’s rise to the club, the midfielder is now thinking about his future at the club.

The Blues currently have a full midfield division, with N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic vying for spots while Billy Gilmour offers an option from the bench.

However, Jorginho has been linked with a return to Italy. Additionally, Kant’s fitness problems lately have shown that creating a long-term replacement for the Frenchman who might eventually replace him wouldn’t be the worst idea.

In this scenario, Camavinga would be the perfect addition to the Chelsea ranks. His agent Jonathan Barnett opened the door for a future transfer.

“I expect three or four big deals that will break many records. Hopefully they will come about. For the smaller clubs, I think there won’t be that many transfers.

We have some very good players. We have probably the best young player in the world in Camavinga. We have (Jack) Grealish. We have Konate in Leipzig. “

What makes Camavinga even more attractive is that at the end of the season he will enter the final year of his contract with Rennes. That would mean it could be available for a bargain price in the summer.
