The London based club has already completed the marquee signings of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner from Ajax and RB Leipzig respectively. They are also reported to have agreed a £90M deal for Bayern Leverkusen Midfielder Kai Havertz. Moves for Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell are also set to be completed in the coming days with Lampard keen to wrap up the club’s transfer business before the beginning of the new season.
Chelsea are now reported to have agreed on a four-year deal with free agent Malang Sarr to join Frank Lampard’s young Chelsea guns. Sarr has been without a club for a month now after refusing to renew his contract at Nice. The athletic center back has been a revelation for Nice with his performances gaining wide recognition across the world.
Barcelona and Arsenal are also reported to have registered an interest in the 21 years old France international but a deal failed to materialize with Sarr choosing Chelsea instead. The ball-playing center back has often been compared to Raphael Varane for his style of play.
According to the Daily Mail newspaper, Sarr is expected to travel to London tomorrow to Undergo a Medical at Chelsea’s Cobham training complex. He is expected to be drafted right into the first team immediately as Lampard tries to fix his leaky Chelsea defence.
