Chelsea eyeing up a move for Adam Wharton

Chelsea are interested in acquiring the services of Crystal Palace midfield sensation Adam Wharton ahead of next season.

According to a report from Fichajes, Chelsea are gearing up for an important transfer window where they will look to strengthen their squad in hopes of giving Enzo Maresca everything he needs to succeed at the London club. Adam Wharton is one of the names on their wishlist and they are willing to hard for the young English international.

Wharton came up the ranks at Blackburn Rovers, he had quite a name for himself while playing for their first team before making the move to Crystal Palace at the start of the year. Since making the move to the Eagles, he featured in 16 Premier League games and has contributed towards three goals.

The 20-year-old has had an impressive start to life at the top and on the back of his consistent performances, Gareth Southgate has rewarded him with a place in England’s squad for the Euro 2024. He has also attracted a lot of interest in his services.

Chelsea looking to prise Wharton away

While he has only been five months since he made the move to Crystal Palace, clubs are already gearing up to prise him away. Chelsea are one of the clubs that are keen on adding him to their ranks. They want to reinforce their squad after a disappointing season last time out.

They want to bring in top talents who fit well in their new manager’s system and help him get his ideas across with ease. The Blues want more quality in their rotation with regards to the midfield and they feel Wharton could do wonders for them both in the short as well as long run.

The 20-year-old will bring a lot of energy into the midfield and he could form a great partnership with the likes of Enzo Fernández and Moisés Caicedo. More importantly, his ability to recover the ball and his distribution would fit well in Marseca’s system.

While they are keen on taking Wharton away from the Eagles, it will require a significant investment and on top of that, they will face stiff competition from rivals for his signature.
