Chelsea Football Club are looking to enter the transfer market to bring in world-class players to massively improve the squad ahead of next season. Chelsea are reportedly close to finalizing a deal to complete the massive double signing of Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez and Ajax Left-back Nicolas Tagliafico this summer.
Chelsea have been a weak defensive side this season and their defensive frailties was hugely exposed in the loss to Arsenal in the FA cup final and Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Chelsea transfer chiefs have now identified Jose Gimenez as a major target to massively improve the defensive line ahead of next season.
25-Year-Old Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez has been regarded as one of the best defenders in Europe as his impressive performances for Diego Simeone has attracted the interest of Chelsea boss Frank Lampard. Chelsea have opened negotiations concerning the transfer for the player as the Blues are reportedly in advanced talks with Atletico for the transfer.
Jose Gimenez is a world-class defender who will transform Chelsea’s defense when signed. The defender is exactly what is missing at Chelsea as he is strong in his tackles, he has tremendous pace to make recoveries, exceptional reading of the game and also, his impressive passing ability and range will be a huge plus for Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.
Chelsea are willing to offer a fee in the region of £73million to complete the signing of Jose Gimenez from Atletico Madrid and the Uruguayan defender will likely sign a Five-years contract with the Blues until June 2025. However, Chelsea have also been linked with Declan Rice but the talks on Jose Gimenez are at an advanced stage and the transfer could be done soon.
Also, Chelsea are very keen to sign a left-back as both Emerson and Marcos Alonso have failed to impress Frank Lampard this season. Chelsea have now focused their attention on signing Nicolas Tagliafico after several failed attempts to sign Ben Chilwell from Leicester city this summer.
27-Year-Old Nicolas Tagliafico is regarded as one of the best performing attacking full-backs in Europe and his assured performances for Ajax this season has drawn the interest of several top Clubs. Tagliafico seems to be the next Ajax player to be joining the Blues after Hakim Ziyech completed his move to Chelsea from Ajax.
Chelsea are willing to offer a fee in the region of £32million to complete the signing of Tagliafico and also, the left-back is keen to join Chelsea after several years at Ajax. Tagliafico will be a massive upgrade for Chelsea as he is a better player than Marcos Alonso and Emerson both in attack and defense.
The double defensive signing of Jose Gimenez and Tagliafico will be a massive addition for the Blues as both players will make a huge difference for Chelsea defensively. Jimenez and Tagliafico will bolster the defense and make the London giants a solid defensive side.
