Chelsea showed their interest in the American market when they signed Christian Pulisic a few years ago, and his relative lack of success clearly hasn’t put them off trying again.
The latest man they’ve been linked with is Gabriel Slonina, who you probably haven’t heard of.
He plays in goal for Chicago Fire, who you may also never have heard of.
According to Football.London, a move for the stopper was well underway in the spring before sanctions shut the whole thing down.
But now we’re on the verge of a new owner meaning the sanctions are lifted, a move is back on. The fact that we now have an American owner will probably only make the move more likely.
Of course he’s not going to have an easy task getting into Chelsea’s first team, with Edu Mendy well established and Kepa the world’s most expensive backup, but the 18 year old is very much one for the future in any case.
