Chelsea closely monitoring 18-year-old France international

The London club are reportedly eyeing up a possible transfer deal for Stade Rennais midfielder Eduardo Camavinga this summer. France international is mentioned as being among one of Blues transfer targets in a report, though he’s one of several footballers the west London giants are looking at.

Blues could do with making some changes to their squad this summer, even if they did just win the UCL final on Saturday night. The German boss has done a great job in his short time at Chelsea, but it would be unwise for the club to rest on its laurels if they want to be more consistent and push for the PL title next year.

This term, Chelsea only just scraped into the top four on the final day of the campaign, and they were never really in the title race at any point after a slow start to the season.

Someone like Eduardo could be useful to give them more spark in midfield than is currently provided by the likes of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic, while teenager Billy Gilmour is probably not yet ready to be a regular.

Arsenal have also been linked with France international in recent times, with their report suggesting the talented 18-year-old midfielder would likely cost nearly €50m.
