Top transfer insider says “nothing concrete” decided – but Chelsea will be “busy” in this area this summer

Fabrizio Romano has given a positive and a negative thought for Chelsea fans on the subject of Leny Yoro.

The young Lille defender has emerged over the course of the last few months as one of the most in demand players in world football in his position and age group. According to Romano, there are a lot of teams chasing him, including Chelsea.

The bad news is that, with some of the world’s biggest sides in the mix, mostly able to offer European football and more money than Chelsea, it’s going to be very tough to land the 18 year old:

“The reality is that the situation is still the same as I’ve been mentioning for months – Real Madrid are seriously pushing for Yoro, while PSG will do their best because they already wanted Yoro last January,” Romano wrote for CaughtOffside.

“Chelsea are following the situation, but there are no concrete talks, nothing else. Despite what may have been written elsewhere, I’m not sure there’s much to report here for now.

But the possible good news is that Chelsea look to be prioritising a centre back in the summer, and that focus could help them get the jump on some of these other teams in the mix. If we move decisively and early, we can’t be ruled out:

“However, I see Chelsea busy with centre-backs in the summer. There will be movements in that position, priority to the outgoings and then Chelsea will consider incomings but that could be one more position to follow in the summer. There is nothing concrete yet in terms of negotiations, as far as I know.”
