Chelsea’s summer transfer window is starting to heat up, and the latest word is of links with Palmeiras defender Gustavo Gomez.
Jorge Nicola, a blue ticked Brazilian football journalist spoke about the links in his latest video, which you can see the in the Tweet embedded here – if you speak Portuguese.
If you don’t you’ll have to trust our translation. Basically, Gomez’ agent is saying there has been contact and interest from Chelsea.
The fact that it’s his agent bigging up the links is pretty important, because we can’t really see where the interest is coming from.
Gomez had 2 years at AC Milan and didn’t play much, and has spent most of his career playing in South America. He’s 28 now and doesn’t fit the profile of players Chelsea tend to sign at all.
He’s shown himself to be a good player, and a return to Europe could be on the cards, but Chelsea? We’re not so sure.
