Source confirms Chelsea's interest in Jose Gimenez

The London is Blue Podcast featured reliable reporter Matt Law of The Telegraph, who was discussing how Chelsea can improve their defence for the next season.

He confirmed that Chelsea are interested in signing Atletico Madrid centre back, Jose Gimenez.

While the centre-back is no longer the irreplaceable starter he once was with the La Liga club, his €120 million release clause is still a big hurdle as the reporter is unsure about the reality of landing Gimenez.

However, Law believes that the 25-year-old ticks all the boxes and will help solve Chelsea’s defensive issues if they can get him in.

He said on the podcast: "I think he can be as big for Chelsea as Van Dijk were for Liverpool."

No price has been quoted as there is only interest from the Blues so far. Transfermarkt values the experienced defender at £50.4 million.
