Chelsea FC set to announce the signing of Atletico Madrid Star.
Chelsea are in no doubt one of the biggest football club in Europe and they will be looking to strengthen their squad in the summer.
Chelsea will back Frank Lampard to sign some players that will help the club to contend for silverware next season,with the west Londoners identifying possible targets after two signings.
Due to the Corona virus outbreak,which have had a devastating effect on football,clubs are expected not to spend too much in transfers in the summer,But Chelsea have expressed interest in some high profile players.
But according to reports,Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has made Atletico Madrid’s Jose Gimenez his Number 1 target at centre half with Chelsea making waves in the transfer market.
The Blues have already landed striker Timo Werner and winger Hakim Ziyech, while playmaker Kai Havertz is edging closer to joining too.
Gimenez could add much needed quality to the team defensively, with Lampard having focused on attacking reinforcement so far.
Ex Chelsea youth and West Ham fan favourite Declan Rice is another he has been keen to bring to Stamford Bridge.
But the Blues’ London rivals have refused to sell after they survived the drop post lockdown.
With West Ham not budging over £80m England ace Rice, who can play in holding midfield and a centre half,Frank Lampard has turned his attention to Gimenez.
The 25-year-old has a release clause of £110m, but Football insider says Chelsea hope to sign him for just £60m.
The Uruguay international has struggled with injuries this season but is highly rated and seen as a solution at the back.
Antonio Rüdiger, Andreas Christensen, Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori have rotated in the role this term.
Lampard knows he needs a top quality centre half following their qualification for the Champions League next season, though, and he is ready to move for Gimenez.
Chelsea will have to wait, however, for Atletico to finish their campaign.
Like the Blues, they return to Champions League action soon, with the La Liga side facing RB Leipzig in their quarter final tie next Thursday.
