Report: Chelsea interested in signing versatile £27 million rated star

Chelsea are interested in signing Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard this summer, Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg claims.

The Blues haven’t added a player during the transfer season, but they are currently in advanced negotiations to sign Raheem Sterling, a winger for Manchester City.

With Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger‘s recent departures, the club is also expected to concentrate on the backline, and Pavard may be a candidate.

Pavard might quit Bayern Munich after four seasons, according to Plettenberg. His fans include Chelsea in addition to Juventus and Atletico.

For the German champions, Pavard has primarily played as a right-back, but he is also capable of playing as a right-sided center-back or a right wing-back.

Chelsea’s interest in him could be motivated by his adaptability. The team needs to strengthen their center defense, but they also need a capable backup for the right-wing-back.

As Reece James’ backup, Cesar Azpilicueta has performed admirably, but he has begun to deteriorate. Additionally, it’s unclear where he’ll live at Chelsea the following year.
