BREAKING: Chelsea agreed €23.4m fee with Fenerbahce to sign central back, Attila Szalai.



Chelsea have reportedly reached an agreement for a fee and contract details to make their first signing of the January transfer window.

The Blues have a number of contractual issues at the back that they are trying to deal with, but a couple of situations there now look up in the air, so this report could have some legs if Chelsea are looking to make some contingency plans in defence.

According to CNN Turk, Chelsea have agreed a €23.4m fee with Fenerbahce to sign centre back, Attila Szalai.

The 23-year old Hungarian international has also agreed a contract at Chelsea according to the same report ahead of a January transfer to Stamford Bridge.

He will reportedly sign a six-year contract with Chelsea and receive an annual salary of €4m.

This isn’t the first time we have seen these links with Chelsea and Szalai, so it might be worth keeping an eye on

“I think every transfer period you need to evaluate again,” Tuchel said. “You cannot say what we wanted in the summer, we do in the winter. And what we want to do in winter, we want to do the next summer. It is not like this.

“Your opinion changes, players change, you have evolvement in the group, you have an atmosphere that you build, you see who is absolutely reliable and these connections build up and create something special hopefully in the group.

“So you cannot say what we tried in the summer did not happen so we will try again for sure in the winter. Sometimes it is like this.”
