Chelsea 'trying to hijack' PSG transfer at 11th hour with Timo Werner swap deal proposed

Much of Chelsea’s summer has been spent chasing centre-back recruits after losing Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen at the end of June. Kalidou Koulibaly’s arrival from Napoli was an impressive statement, and they wasted no time in moving onto Sevilla defender Kounde. 

Despite agreeing a £55million fee for the Frenchman, Barcelona told him to sit tight and, after activating a financial ‘lever’ last week, they are reportedly on the verge of hijacking the deal. Kounde sparked concerns that his move to Stamford Bridge could be off when he rejoined Sevilla’s pre-season tour on Thursday. 

Hedging their bets, Chelsea are now plotting an audacious move to hijack Mukiele’s switch to PSG. Footmercato claim that the Blues want to include Werner in a swap deal, which would see the German return to his former club.
