Chelsea make late approach to sign Tosin Adarabioyo

Chelsea have made a late attempt to overtake Newcastle United in the pursuit of Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo.

According to a report from HITC, Chelsea are looking to land Tosin Adarabioyo at the club ahead of next season. The Blues have made an approach to sign the Newcastle United target and are pushing to ensure they come out on top in the race to secure his signature.

Things might not have worked out for Adarabioyo at Manchester City. But the move to Fulham has done wonders for him. He has been a mainstay for the Cottagers over the years. While the 26-year-old struggled with injuries in the first half of the 2023/24 season, he was a regular feature for them after returning to full fitness.

Adarabioyo has been an integral part of their first team setup, but he looks all set to leave the club in a month. The Manchester native’s contract is running out, and he has no intention of penning down a new deal. With the experienced campaigner available for free, there is no shortage of interest in him

Newcastle United, Chelsea to battle for Adarabioyo

Newcastle United are one of the clubs keen on having the 26-year-old in their squad. The Magpies want to reinforce their defence in the upcoming transfer window. They are looking to add more quality as well as depth, with Jamaal Lascelles and Sven Botman out injured.

The duo might not return in time for the start of the season. As a result, Eddie Howe’s team have been pushing hard to sign Adarabioyo. Newcastle United have been involved in talks with the player’s camp for a long while now and have been confident of getting it over the line.

But, since no deal has been signed yet, Chelsea have entered the race. The Blues have made an approach to sign the former Manchester City academy ace. With Thiago Silva leaving the club and Trevoh Chalobah’s future at Stamford Bridge uncertain, the West London club feel the Fulham defender could be an ideal signing.

He will add the much-needed depth to their squad, and signing someone with so much experience for free could be an astute piece of business. Chelsea’s former boss Mauricio Pochettino was unsure about having the English centre-back in his squad. But with his exit earlier in the week, the Blues are now pushing hard to overtake the Magpies.
