Chelsea keen to sign Brazilian centre back before Tuesday


According to Daily Mail, Chelsea are interested in signing PSG defender, Marquinhos. The Londoners have had an enquiry rejected by the French champions.

Marquinhos is one of the most talented young defenders around, but the Brazilian has struggled to hold down a regular place at PSG since this move from Roma.

Thiago Silva and David Luiz are the first choice defenders at PSG.

Jose Mourinho is desperate to sign a centre back. After spending all summer chasing John Stones, the Portuguese manager seems to finally realized that he has hit a dead end.

It appears that Chelsea are now looking at other targets. Monaco defender Aymen Abdennour was also a target for Mourinho. But the defender joined Valencia yesterday.

Everton manager, Roberto Martinez has claimed that Stones is not for sale at any price and that he is one of those things, money cannot buy.

Kenwright and Jon Woods are also reluctant to sell Stones this summer and it seems that the England defender will have to continue at Everton this season, despite submitting a transfer request.

Chelsea have started the season poorly and have been leaking goals, left, right and centre. John Terry has already picked up a red card and star full back, Ivanovic has looked out of sorts.

Despite signing a left back in Baba Rahman, Chelsea need to sign a centre back before Tuesday’s deadline, if they are to mount a serious title challenge.
