Italian transfer insider Fabrizio Romano is nevertheless fanning the flames once again, this time claiming that the London Blues have place €90 million on the table for the 20-year-old. Moreover, Chelsea are prepared to loan Gvardiol back out to Leipzig for the duration of the campaign, meaning he wouldn't officially move to the Isle until the summer of 2023.
The likelihood of this report being true seems rather remote, but it might be the case that the two clubs are at least taking again. Gvardiol has had some form issues in recent deployments and the club could secure a big transfer plus on the player they paid Dinamo Zagreb €18.8 million for prior to the 2021/22 campaign.
Exclusive: Chelsea are in advanced talks with RB Leipzig to sign Joško Gvardiol! Deal would be completed now but with Gvardiol staying at RB Leipzig, he’d join Chelsea in June 2023. 🚨🔵 #CFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 30, 2022
Official proposal submitted today around €90m. Negotiations ongoing on clubs side. pic.twitter.com/3HKoSIjcyN
