Breaking: Chelsea In For A Swap Deal For Juventus Defender With Chelsea Striker Set To Land In Turin

Chelsea are working on a swap deal with Juventus to sign Matthijs de Ligt, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

The Blues’ plan is to offer Timo Werner plus €25-30million as a starting bid. However, such an offer is unlikely to be accepted as Juventus value De Ligt at over €100million.

Chelsea will hope to arrive at a €40-45million fee plus Werner – which might not still be enough.
