Chelsea eye shock swoop on £15m van Gaal favourite after Koulibaly bid hits buffers

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been cast aside somewhat amid the ongoing circus in Manchester, though the Blues propping up the bar will not be subdued so easily. 

Having landed N’Golo Kante and Michy Batshuayi already, Antonio Cone is working hard to craft together a squad capable of challenging Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho over the course of the season.

One of his top target has reportedly been Kalidou Koulibaly, though Napoli’s monumental £45m price tag is believed to have put top brass in West London off.

With that in mind, the former Italy coach is thought to be planning a shock move for £15m Lazio defender Stefan De Vrij.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Serie A giants are ready to offload the 24-year old after growing frustrated at his continued injury problems.

Previously, he has been linked with Manchester United after emerging as a regular in the Dutch national side during their run to the semi-final of the 2014 World Cup, under the stewardship of Louis van Gaal.

How many defenders do Chelsea need for the new season? Let us know below…
