Fabrizio Romano has come out and claimed that CHELSEA are very much interested in signing Lyon star Bradley Barcola this summer.
The club have spent some serious money on midfielders and attackers that they hoped would improve the side over the course of the summer – but Mauricio Pochettino is not 100 per cent happy with his squad.
Barcola scored seven goals and added 10 assists in 35 games across all competitions and is considered to be one of the most exciting talents in Ligue 1 right now, with PSG also keen on a transfer deal.
But despite confirming that the club are interested in the lad – Romano has also revealed that Barcola is very keen to make the move to PSG.
What Has Been Said –
On the starlet, Romano said: “It’s true there is interest in a player like Barcola, also because at the moment the deal with PSG is getting complicated and it’s not easy between the two clubs.
“The player wants to go to PSG, but PSG and Lyon have no agreement on the fee and on the structure of the deal, so this is why it’s getting difficult for PSG.”
The board have spent some serious money on players, decent players that have a bright future, but they have not made that statement signing that will get their rivals worried.
Barcola is a very good very good young striker – but is he really good enough to lead the attack – Pochettino wants a certain type of player to add to the squad and we feel he may not get that at this stage of the transfer window.
