Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are glued to any news outlet they can find for updates on their latest top target, but they needn’t, we’ve got it covered.
According to reports from the Goal.com, Chelsea will have an answer as to whether or not they will land Napoli defender, in the coming days.
The 25-year-old has been a target for the Blues for the majority of the summer and Conte has reportedly tabled an improved offer of £42m, although that has been rejected by the Italian outfit as they are unwilling to sell the defender until they have a replacement.
The Senegalese international’s agent, Bruno Satin, has given Chelsea supporting punters here in the bar a boost by saying; “Although our discussions at the moment are confidential.”
He contiued: “We will be able to announce something in the next few days, two or three days.”
Should a move to Stamford Bridge be announced ahead of the opening weekend of the Premier League, it will still more than likely be too soon for Blues fans to see the defender in action when they face West Ham on Monday.
Blues fans, we want to hear from you! What do you make of this announcement? Do you think Conte will get his man? Let us know below…
