Chelsea readying an audacious move for Aston Villa star



Transfer: Chelsea pushing to sign £40M man – 65m star has agreed six-year Chelsea move

An insight into the plans of the powers that be at Premier League giants Chelsea to reinforce the club’s goalkeeping ranks has been provided late on Friday.

This comes as the Blues prepare to step up efforts to bring in a new no.1 with a view to next season.

It has of course long been rumoured that fresh blood could be on the agenda between the posts at Stamford Bridge this summer.

Owing to an alarming dip in form on the part of Edouard Mendy, and the ongoing inability of Kepa Arrizabalaga to prove himself worthy of the title of Chelsea’s undisputed long-term no.1, Todd Boehly and co. have been left with little choice but to scour the market for alternative options.

And, as alluded to above, on Friday, the identity of one such target has been revealed.

The info comes courtesy of Darren Lewis of The Mirror, who points towards Aston Villa star Emiliano Martinez as being in the sights of the Pensioners.

Recent weeks have seen speculation spread in the media that Martinez is giving serious consideration to a move away from Villa Park.

And Chelsea, it would appear, are positioning themselves to take advantage of the situation.

The Blues, though, could face stiff competition for his signature, with both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur also understood to be keen on the Argentinian international
