A big animator in the transfer market this summer, Chelsea has not been in the lace, and neither has its new owner. Tedd Boehly, the American who bought the club from Roman Abramovich, took out the checkbook to convince Wesley Fofana, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella or even Raheem Sterling and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to settle in London. But obviously, he does not intend to stop there, as explained by the English media The Telegraph. Indeed, he would already prepare the next transfer window in the event of failure in the negotiations for the extension of the contract of Mason Mount, the English winger linked until 2024 with Chelsea.
Pino to replace Mount?
With this in mind, the residents of Stamford Bridge could try Yeremi Pino. The 19-year-old Spain international caused a sensation in Spain last year with Villarreal, reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League and taking part in no less than 40 games in all competitions. Performances that earned him the honors of the Spanish selection, he who is tipped to be part of Luis Enrique’s list for the next World Cup in Qatar. However, it will be necessary to pay the price to convince the leaders of the yellow submarine to let go of their nugget under contract until 2027. We are talking about a check for no less than 80 million euros. But since Tedd Boehly doesn’t really seem to be counting the money, it’s not impossible to see Graham Potter, the new coach, soon pose alongside Yeremi Pino.
