Chelsea ‘more likely’ to pursue Edson Alvarez alternative amid Kante uncertainty

N’Golo Kante and Jorginho’s futures at Stamford Bridge have the Blues reportedly considering midfield reinforcements to replace them.
Chelsea Transfer News:

It would be quite difficult to replace N’Golo Kante given the role he has played recently for Chelsea Football Club. The midfielder was one of the most reliable performers at Stamford Bridge after being acquired from Leicester City after winning the Premier League.

Kante has won the Premier League in his first season, as well as the Champions League, Europa League, Club World Cup, and FA Cup after signing for a cost of £30 million in 2016. His time in west London is gradually coming to an end despite being a regular influence.

As Kante is getting closer to departing the team this summer, Jorginho also faces a peculiar situation. Todd Boehly is probably interested in strengthening Graham Potter’s squad’s aging midfield, which is why there have been ties to Jude Bellingham and Edson Alvarez.

Kante’s Chelsea contract expires in the summer, and as things are, he is anticipated to depart the team. Unfortunately for him, injuries severely limited his 2022–2023 season, but teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris Saint Germain are still interested in his talents.

Chelsea is anticipated to be active in the current and future transfer markets when the January transfer window starts in less than two weeks. Journalist Simon Phillips asserted Southampton’s Romeo Lavia is more likely to sign than Alvarez as transfer rumours involving some of Europe’s top midfielders continue to surface.

Many people won’t be shocked to learn that Lavia is one of the possible additions. The Belgian moved from Manchester City to St Mary’s with Chelsea Co-Director of Recruitment and Talent Joe Shields in the summer and may be planning a similar transfer back to the capital.

Following reports from RMC Sport that the Blues remain interested in the Saints man, Phillips explained to GiveMeSport why Lavia may be the next incoming. “ I think Lavia is probably going to be more likely than Álvarez because Chelsea did push and try and sign him on deadline day with a late offer,” he said. “So, he’s the one to watch rather than Álvarez, I would say.”
