According to a recent report from The Guardian, Chelsea are interested in trying to sign Kyle Walker-Peters from Southampton.
The 25-year-old wing-back has spent the last few years impressing in a big way for the Saints and seems to be ‘suited’ to the system that Thomas Tuchel has begun to implement at Stamford Bridge. The fee that’s been discussed is between £35 million and £40 million, representing how serious Tuchel is about bringing in a few new faces.
The Blues manager has already made it known that he’s somewhat frustrated with the lack of action in the summer transfer window, even though they’ve already brought in a few new names, with the club wanting to push even further and challenge for the Premier League title once again.
Walker-Peters alone isn’t the signing that’s going to completely shift their trajectory but he’s definitely the kind of ‘hungry’ player that is going to get them pushing forward.
