Benjamin Pavard, a defender for Bayern Munich, is said to be eager to join Chelsea this summer.
The 26-year-old is open to the notion of sealing a deal to Stamford Bridge during the current transfer window, according to Bild writer Christian Falk.
The Blues must first submit a competitive transfer bid for Bayern’s £115,000-per-week star.
If Chelsea makes a substantial offer, Benjamin Pavard would be open to joining, Falk stated on Twitter.
The exceptional guy Pavard won the Bundesliga league title for the third year in a row last season.
In reality, it was previously reported that Chelsea had received a signing offer for him.
He undoubtedly fits the bill of someone who may be a valuable addition to Thomas Tuchel’s team at the Bridge, however, it’s unknown how much the German champions Bayern will ask for him.
Happy to join Chelsea, Pavard
Since learning Pavard is open to coming, Chelsea has overcome a significant hurdle in their pursuit of the player. But the West London club’s next step is to reach a price with Bayern.
The Blues need to keep trying until they add another defender to their roster despite the mixed results of their transfer attempts thus far in this window.
Pavard’s ability to play center defense or right back, together with the World Cup winner’s track record of excellence for both club and country, should be extremely appealing to Chelsea.
Given his qualities, the France international may prove to be a very astute target.
Make a move!
Clubs still have plenty of time to complete deals because the transfer window doesn’t close until September 1st.
However, new hires will miss preseason while wearing Chelsea uniforms and will need to adjust during the first few games of the new season.
Although there are enough defenders in the group to begin the season with a back three, supporters are fervently hoping for the addition of a fourth center-back.
