Chelsea leading Juventus in the race to sign PSG defender

Chelsea reportedly want to sign Layvin Kurzawa from PSG this summer.

According to claims from SFR Sport, as cited by Calciomercato, the Blues are leading Juventus in the race to sign the impressive full-back.

Kurzawa has been heavily linked with a move away from Paris in recent weeks and Juve have emerged as a potential destination for the player. However, if reports are to be believed, the Frenchman is in favour of a move to England.

Chelsea recruited Emerson Palmieri from Torino only in the January transfer window as they bolstered their left-sided defensive options. However, Juventus’ Alex Sandro continues to be linked, whilst Kurzawa has now also been touted with a move to Stamford Bridge.

The 25-year-old left-back has made 17 starts for PSG in Ligue 1 this season and also started six games in the Champions League for his side.

Kurzawa remains a key component in PSG’s first-team plans but with the club set to undergo plenty of changes in the next few months with Unai Emery likely to be replaced, the defender may seek an escape route.


20 goal Chelsea academy starlet giving ‘serious consideration’ to leaving club

Chelsea Under 18s striker Martell Taylor-Crossdale is giving “serious consideration” to leaving the club for first team football, according to the Daily Mail journalist Sami Mokbel.

The 18 year old has a year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge, and has attracted interest from Charlton Athletic, Fleetwood Town and a number of other EFL clubs.

Academy coaches believe he has the ability to make an impact in the Premier League, but with first team opportunities likely to be limited, the forward is said to be considering his options.

Taylor-Crossdale has impressed both in the FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League this season, and has racked up 20 goals in all competitions, both for the Under 18s and Under 23s.

Despite his impressive numbers, he didn’t feature prominently for the Blues in their impressive run to the EFL Trophy semi-finals, but he has scored five goals in seven Premier League 2 fixtures at Under 23 level this campaign.
