“What I’m told” – Fabrizio Romano drops key Chelsea transfer update

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has dropped a key Chelsea transfer update this weekend as the January transfer window progresses.

The Blues have been fairly quiet so far other than sorting out some loan moves in and out, but there are still some situations being explored as we enter the final 10 days of the window.

A potential new centre back has been mentioned a lot, but judging from Romano’s latest update on that situation, it doesn’t look like anything is close to bubbling up yet, and this one could be one for the summer window now.

Romano has been honing in on one target in particular who has generated rumours after being linked with Chelsea recently, Nice centre back Jean-Clair Todibo.

Chelsea have expressed an interest in landing Todibo, according to the Daily Mail, but their hopes of striking a mid-season deal have been hampered as Nice are reluctant to cashing in.

Romano told GIVEMESPORT:

“From what I’m told, Chelsea have been involved in some scouting activity, but they didn’t start any negotiations with the player’s camp or Nice.

“They know that the player is probably not for sale in the January transfer window. Nice would only sell Todibo for a very important amount of money, not €35million or €40million, as reported in the media.

“I think it is going to be very complicated to sign Todibo in January. He could be a target for many clubs, including Manchester United, in the summer transfer window.”
