Chelsea transfer news: Thiago Silva successor eyed, keeper targeted & more

Here is all the latest Chelsea transfer news.


First up, Chelsea are reportedly keen on signing a quality right-back at the end of the season and they have identified the Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries as a potential target.

According to a report from Italian outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Blues will face competition from Premier League rivals Manchester United, who are keen on bringing in a quality fullback as well.

The 26-year-old Netherlands international is highly rated around Europe and he has proven his quality for his country and in the Italian league.

Next up, According to Simon Phillips (via GiveMeSport), Graham Potter has made the signing of Robert Sanchez a priority at Chelsea.

Potter wants to reunite with the Spanish goalkeeper at Stamford Bridge as the English manager aims to bring reinforcements in that area. With Kepa struggling with injuries and Edouard Mendy falling down the pecking order, Potter needs a strong shot-stopper who is also good with the ball at his feet to help implement his style of play.

Elsewhere, according to FC Inter News, Inter centre-back Milan Skriniar is on Chelsea’s radar. The stopper was close to signing an extension with the Nerazzurri, but reportedly wants €6.5m plus bonuses instead of €5.5m plus bonuses, which has forced delays in the renewal.

This means Chelsea can sign him to a pre-contract agreement from January and then bring him in for free in the summer.

Finally, according to The Mirror, Chelsea scouts are monitoring young Ecuadorian centre-back Piero Hincapié, who plays for Bayer Leverkusen and is one of the best young defenders in Germany. He is seen as a long-term successor to Thiago Silva.
