Chelsea insist on Signing Vinicius Junior to Replace Willian

Chelsea have been busy this summer, with Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech in through the door early on in the transfer window.

However, Frank Lampard isn’t content with just two additions. The Blues boss wants to overhaul his squad ahead of the 2020/21 season, so more signings are expected before the window closes.

Kai Havertz has become the focus of most speculation of late, with the German Chelsea ’s new priority, but the Stamford Bridge club are looking at a number of different players in a number of different positions.

Here are the latest Chelsea transfer rumours.

Chelsea have reportedly made an approach for Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior. The Brazilian star has fallen out of favour in big games for the boss. Frank Lampard wants reinforcement as he looks to close the gap between their rivals and make his side title contenders next season.

Reports from Spain suggests that initial contact was made as early as November. Frank Lampard is desperate to shape his squad, and he sees Vinicius Junior as the best option. Chelsea is interested with the Brazilian star to sharpen their attack.

The 20 year old was left out of the Champions League squad which faced Manchester City in second leg. Vinicius Junior’s future at Santiago Bernabou has been in doubt recently after missing some crucial games.

Chelsea now want the 20 year old at the Stamford Bridge, and reports claim that they first made their attempt in November. Vinicius Junior joined the LaLiga giants from Flamengo in the year 2018.

The Brazilian has a release clause of £30m according to reports.
