Chelsea news round-up: Casemiro targeted, Blues on alert, Dembele update

Chelsea earmark €60m Real Madrid midfielder as ‘leading target’
Chelsea are reportedly prepared to explore the possibility of landing Real Madrid’s Brazil international Casemiro.
The west Londoners are expected to be in the transfer market for a new central midfielder next year, with N’Golo Kante continues to struggle with injury woes, while Saul Niguez set to return to his parent club Atletico Madrid.
According to a recent report from El Nacional, the UEFA Champions League holders have pinpointed Casemiro as a leading target, with the La Liga giants Real Madrid open to the idea of cashing in on the South American for the right price.

The 29-year-old star has again been a key player for Carlo Ancelotti’s side during the 2021-22 season, making 21 appearances across all competitions, contributing three assists in the process.

However, it is reported that offers in the region of €60 million (£51.2 million) would be considered by the Galacticos, and the Blues would be ready to pay that amount to land him.
The Spaniards are believed to have already earmarked Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi as a replacement for the Sao Paulo youngster, who has a contract at the Santiago Bernabeu outfit until June 2025.

He has scored 30 goals and registered 27 assists in 307 matches for the capital heavyweights in all competitions.
