The Lowdown: Fofana in
The Blues have made a head start on their January business by reaching a pre-agreement with Molde FK for young forward David Datro Fofana.
Teenage midfielder Andrey Santos also appears to be on the way with an agreement reached with Vasco da Gama, and it seems as if a third addition may be imminent with Badiashile.
The Latest: Badiashile next?
FI reporter Pete O’Rourke shared an update regarding Badiashile in the last 24 hours, revealing that the Blues are in advanced talks to sign the 21-year-old.
Chelsea are thought to be finalising a transfer for the Adidas-sponsored star and are confident of completing a move as soon as the transfer window opens.
The Verdict: Good news
Stamford Bridge officials aren’t hanging around when it comes to 2023 additions, and it seems as if it could be three signed relatively quickly in the New Year.
You’d say that Badiashile is the marquee name out of the three potential arrivals, with the defender having 135 games of senior experience under his belt for Monaco at the age of 21.
He’ll give Graham Potter another high-quality option at the back and could be the answer both in the short and long run, making it an exciting deal.
