I’m told’: Chelsea to make shock move for £40m midfielder who broke their hearts in 2021 – journalist

Simon Phillips, a journalist for GiveMeSport, reported that Chelsea may make a late offer to buy Youri Tielemans from Leicester City.

The Blues had already plundered the Foxes for their star central defender Wesley Fofana, and despite the typically harsh negotiations at the King Power, they were able to negotiate a lower fee.

The Blues are likely to be busier on the last day of the transfer window as they scramble to finalize their team for the next season.

They had hoped they wouldn’t need to buy in central midfield, considering their strength in that position when everyone is well.

N’golo Kante’s injury, coupled with the fact that Mateo Kovacic is still healing from his own issues, exposed the club’s shortcomings almost immediately.

This might result in the club entering the market late for another midfielder today, with Tielemans allegedly available at the right price.

Phillips suggested that the Blues may pursue the Belgian, who famously sunk them in the FA Cup final with a spectacular long-range strike.

He said: “I’m not going to rule out a surprise name from nowhere.

“Tielemans at Leicester is one that I was told about a few weeks ago but I didn’t really report because it was just whispers. But that could come up because he’s available and he’s a centre midfielder.

“So, that’s definitely one to watch in the final stages of the transfer window, but I can see Chelsea pushing for a new midfielder, purely because of all the injuries.”

Despite the fact that the Belgian is not the ideal midfielder for the Blues in their present system, he has Premier League experience and outstanding ball control, and his price might be reduced.
