Chelsea enter talks to sign €90m Bundesliga star

The Blues have made a move to sign RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol for €90 million (£77m) before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

As part of a potential deal for Gvardiol, Chelsea would allow Leipzig to re-sign the 20-year-old Croatian, who has also caught the eye of Manchester City and Tottenham, on loan for this season.

Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has said Gvardiol is not for sale, but Chelsea’s loan offer has apparently convinced the Bundesliga club to consider it. [Daily Mail]
