Chelsea ready to bid £49m

Chelsea are looking to complete more blockbuster moves in the coming months according to reports in the latest news cycle.

British media outlet, The Sun, reports:

Chelsea set to go back in for AC Milan and Italy defender Alessio Romagnoli with £49million January bid

Just 21 years of age, the young centre back already looks as if he ticks most of the boxes.


At 6ft 2in he’s got the natural frame for The Premier League. But he is also a highly mobile and quick player who can cope with even the fastest forwards.

The Italy international who made his debut for Italy this year, has two caps for his country and has been a stalwart for AC Milan playing 40 times for the club he signed for last summer.

Chelsea have been on the lookout for defensive reinforcements since Antonio Conte arrived and there is a feeling that the signing of David Luiz in the summer is only part of the solution.

John Terry still looks, when fit, to be Chelsea’s best centre back. But, at 35, the clock is ticking on his career. And, while injury has certainly stymied the progress of Kurt Zouma’s career, he is yet to fully convince that he can be the defensive kingpin for The Blues in the long-term.
