Chelsea has taken a new stance on the transfer of promising RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol. The Croatia international was linked with a summer move to the Blues as well as a January switch.

Being a young centre-back with a dominant left foot, however, this was only taken a step further with his impressive performances at the World Cup, where the 20-year-old helped guide his country to a third-place finish.

However, that may have complicated matters further, with a report from the Athletic claiming that his value was as high as £79 million in recent discussions. The Blues’ chances of completing a transfer have been hampered by the signing of young defender Benoit Badiashile from AS Monaco.

However, things can move quickly in football, particularly in the transfer market, with teams likely to jump at any opportunity to sign such a promising youngster. However, there is still hope.

Should Chelsea fire Graham Potter as a result of their poor performance?

He told journalists:

“We have control because of the contract extension with Josko — the club has done an outstanding job. Football has gone crazy, but we have no intention of selling Josko Gvardiol in the summer.”

It remains to be seen whether the Blues will go out of their way in the coming weeks to test the German club’s resolve, though a deal appears unlikely at this point.
