With a shabby looking defence unit, Chelsea now have no choice than to look for defensive reinforcement in Paris Saint Germain defender Marquinos.
During the summer, Chelsea had several bids for Everton’s John Stones but the Toffees rebuffed all the advances of Chelsea and they are currently without a capable replacement for Terry –they have now turned their attention to the French Champions For Marquinos.
Marquinos fell down the selection pecking order of Laurent Blanc since the advent of David Luiz to the team and he seems unhappy at the moment. In the nine League games of PSG, the 21-year-old has only featured four times.
According to Spanish publication, the Spanish and English Champions are going to lock horns over the player’s signature come the transfer window of January.
Ever though Chelsea signed Papy Djilobodji during the summer, Mourinho is yet to feature the player as he’s not impressed with the signing but Marquinos fits into Mourinho’s want.
The season for Chelsea has been characterized by poor defending attributed to the ageing and decline of Ivanovic and John Terry. When fielded, Ivanovics’ wing has always been targeted because it has been tagged the weakest link.
