Report: Chelsea prepare offer for Dutch international defender

The focus of a new centre back appears to be the priority for Chelsea once again within the next transfer window.

The Blues had been pursuing Jules Kounde of Sevilla in the last window but didn’t manage to get that one done, whether they will go back in for him or not remains to be seen.

However, the Blues have another target on the list who they are preparing to make an offer for, according to Spanish outlet, AS.

Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt is soon to be the subject of a big money offer from Chelsea, according to the report.

The 22-year old Dutch international is a 120 million euro player, per the report, but Chelsea would probably want to reduce that fee significantly if they were to bring the young international to Stamford Bridge.

It might be one to keep an eye on, with a few reports now pointing towards De Ligt as being a genuine option for Chelsea.
