Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is currently a very busy women working on a number of different transfer deals for the club.
Having secured the deals of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, Kai Havertz is now close.
But these aren’t the only current ongoing deals, according to Bleacher Report Journalist and transfer insider, Dean Jones.
Jones was talking on BR’s Instagram live feed, as reported by The Blue Stands.
He revealed that as well as working on these deals, Marina is also on the phone to the agent of Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell, and Napoli centre back, Kalidou Koulibaly.
He says that she has also got someone talking to the representatives of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, and is also working on a goalkeeper.
“I think there’s something to bear in mind for Chelsea fans is that they’re trying to sign a lot of players right now.
“[Havertz] is not the only deal they’re focusing on. [Marina] is also on the phone to Koulibaly’s agent, she’s on the phone to Ben Chilwell’s agent, she’s trying to find a midfielder, she’s got someone speaking to Declan Rice, they’re trying to find a goalkeeper – basically trying to sign half a team here!
“I mean it’s really difficult. Marina’s days must be really long at Chelsea right now, the amount of calls she’s got to get through.”
Chelsea were always expected to be one of the more busier clubs this transfer window, and they have until the end of October to secure deals. But they will be looking to get them in as soon as possible to begin pre-season training
