PREMIER LEAGUE – Chelsea to move from Kounde to De Ligt
After failing to lure in Sevilla’s highly-rated French center-back during the recently concluded transfer window, Chelsea are moving on from him. Andalusian outfit Sevilla refused to lower their asking price of the defender and the Blues want to move on from him
According to Calciomercarto, they are now keen on Juventus’ Dutch stopper Matthijs De Ligt. The 22-year-old is down in Allegri’s first team pecking order with both veterans – Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini – above him.
Chelsea have reportedly made him first priority, as they prepare to part ways to Antonio Rudiger. De Ligt currently has a market value of €75m, almost the same amount as they offered for Jules Kounde.
