‘One to watch’: Chelsea eye La Liga star with 19 goal contributions

Chelsea are once again looking to change up their attack this summer.

Chelsea have spent over £600m in the previous two transfer windows, with their wide areas very inflated at this moment in time.

However, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech – the latter of which nearly joined PSG in January – are likely to leave in the summer.

Elsewhere, Mason Mount’s contract negotiations have stalled and there is talk he will leave Stamford Bridge this summer so Chelsea do not lose him for free in 2024.

So, signing another wide player would make some sense come the summer. And now, it has been suggested that the Blues are back in for Raphinha:

According to journalist Simon Phillips, Chelsea remain keen on the 26-year-old winger and many at the club still like the player. He said: “Yeah, this is one to watch for sure. I was told months ago that Chelsea were still keeping tabs on Raphinha, even after he joined Barcelona. He was fairly close to joining Chelsea at one point before Barcelona came in.

“Many at Chelsea still like him. Obviously, he chose Barcelona, they were his dream and he made that pretty clear publicly as well, but Chelsea have still been there.”

Raphinha has scored nine and assisted nine in 38 outings for FC Barcelona this season.
