Chelsea formulating offer to sign Frenkie de Jong

Frenkie De Jong has been linked with the move away from Barcelona at the end of the season and Chelsea are keen on securing his signature.

According to Fichajes, Chelsea could launch an offer for him in the coming weeks in the region of around €80 million. It will be interesting to see if they can convince the player to join them and agree on a deal with his club as well.

It is no secret that Chelsea will need to improve their midfield options and the Dutch international midfielder could prove to be a superb acquisition. He will add creativity, control and composure in the midfield. Chelsea needs someone who can add drive, craft and control to the side.

The Barcelona star could form a quality partnership with Enzo Fernandes and Moises Caicedo at Chelsea next season. He has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past as well with clubs like Manchester United keen on him. It will be interesting to see if Chelsea can get the deal done.

Can Chelsea convince De Jong to join them?

The Blues have failed to secure UEFA Champions League qualification for the next season and it could be difficult for them when it comes to attracting the top players. De Jong might want to compete at the highest level and he will look to join the club capable of winning major trophies.

Chelsea have had two disappointing seasons and it remains to be seen whether they are still an attractive destination for the best players in the world. In addition to that, the club’s financial situation could make it difficult for them to spend a substantial amount of money on the midfielder. They will have to comply with the financial regulations and they will not want to risk a points deduction for overspending. Their revenues have already taken a hit after missing out on European football for two consecutive seasons.

With that said, Chelsea would do well to secure the services of a player of his quality and the Dutchman could transform them in the midfield. They will need players of his quality if they want to compete for trophies once again.
