Gvardiol out of favorite, Chelsea now close to have clever youngster put pen to paper

March 9, 2023

There have been numerous negotiations between Chelsea and the German club over the past few seasons, and there are ruмors that the two clubs are in talks again this month.

It is believed that recent negotiations have taken place between all parties over the 21-year-old, who might be headed to Stamford Bridge for the upcoming season.

According to the source, Chelsea are “very close” to signing Leipzig’s attacking midfielder. In fact, they could close the purchase within the next two days.

Szoboszlai, who is a talented attacking midfielder, is good in both central and wide positions.

Chris Sutton referred to Szoboszlai as a “smart creative,” and he is having an impressive season thus far in Germany.

The Hungarian international has scored five goals and dished out thirteen assists in 32 games across all competitions, including outstanding performances in both the Bundesliga and Champions League.

This proposed transaction has appeared out of nowhere.

Undoubtedly, Szoboszlai is an exceptionally gifted man who would be a welcome addition to the Premier League.

Yet, Chelsea must likely ship out some of their attacking midfielders prior to adding more, as they appear to be significantly overstocked in that position.

For instance, our initial concern is for the future of Mason Mount, a 24-year-old Blues standout.

It may not be a coincidence as talkSPORT reported earlier this week that Mount is likely to join Liverpool in the summer.
