Edmond Tapsoba has made it no secret of his desire to play for Chelsea
Tapsoba has followed both Chelsea and Kai Havertz on Instagram.
Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal have all been linked with a move for Tapsoba.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is eager to land a new central defender with Brighton’s Ben White also on the transfer shortlist.
But Tapsoba is making it no secret of his desire to move to West London after following Chelsea and potential future team-mate Kai Havertz on the social media platform.
It comes just a day after he was quizzed on potential links to a move to Stamford Bridge.
As quoted by Afriquesports, via Goal journalist Ronan Murphy, Tapsoba said:
“With Chelsea, for the moment, there is nothing concrete, nothing official.
“What I can say is that I will start my season with Bayer Leverkusen. We keep our fingers crossed for God to guide us to the right path.”
The super Tapsoba played 31 Bundesliga games for Leverkusen last season, helping his side to qualify for the Europa League.
According to the sun, Tasopba has no release clause with reports stating his could even cost a whopping £52m to land the defender.
Should Chelsea fail to land Tapsoba, they could switch their focus back to Jules Kounde, another defender on the transfer wishlist.
