Chelsea target opens door for transfer


Author of a good start to the season, Leandro Trossard has been in the sights of Chelsea for several weeks, as well as Atlético Madrid.

Leandro Trossard, Brighton

Interviewed in the media HLNthe 27-year-old Belgian left the door open when first discussing his future and a possible move from Brighton to the Blues: “Chelsea have in any case not yet discussed either with Brighton or with me. I have to wait and see. I want to finish strong at Brighton and leave for Qatar with that good feeling.”

Author of 7 goals and 3 assists in 13 games with Brighton this season, Leandro Trossard also has an attractive contractual situation for his courtiers: the winger passed by Genk only has eight months left on his contract with his club, before find yourself free. Good performances at the World Cup in Qatar with Belgium to put him in the sights of other European clubs.

An Atlético Madrid defender for this winter?

Worried after the injuries of Kalidou Koulibaly and Wesley Fofana, the Chelsea club wants to strengthen its central defense this winter. In this sense, according to the revelations of SportWitness, the Chelsea Blues would like to secure the services of José Maria Gimenez, whom the English club was already tracking this summer. The Uruguayan is a prominent member of the Atlético Madrid squad, and a departure from the defender seems like a very big bet. Especially since, linked to the Colchoneros until June 2025, José Maria Gimenez does not seem to be able to leave the 5th in La Liga easily, his club being able to retain him as he sees fit.

But the sporting situation of Atlético Madrid could convince the 27-year-old Uruguayan to leave. Indeed, unlike Chelsea, which will play in the knockout stages of the Champions League in February, against Dortmund, the Spanish club, last in its C1 group, is out of Europe in November. A good point for Chelsea in view of a transfer.
