Chelsea told if £87 million winger will make transfer move


Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has insisted that Napoli star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia isn’t expected to leave in January, amid links to CHELSEA.

The January window is just around the corner and there is alot of speculation in the media about who that board will look to try and bring in to help get their season back on track.

We have not had the best of starts under Mauricio Pochettino and are lacking some top-level players in key areas of the pitch that will help them get back into the chase for a top four spot, which led to reports that Kvaratskhelia is wanted.

It’s claimed that Napoli will demand in excess of €100million (£87million) for Kvaratskhelia, though they are hoping to fend off interest with a new and improved contract.

However – Romano has now opened up and claimed that he is not expecting Kvaratskhelia to leave Napoli anytime soon – Speaking in his column to CaughtOffside, he said: “We had links between Napoli’s Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Chelsea this week but I can tell you guys, from what I am hearing at the moment is that CHELSEA have not started any type of negotiations or made any contact for Kvaratskhelia.

‘Not on the player’s side, not on the club side with Napoli, so the situation is completely quiet,” the transfer expert said.

“I can also say that nothing is going to happen in January because Kvaratskhelia is not for sale.

‘Napoli have a situation on their hands where Victor Osimhen could leave the club next summer, so their idea is to keep Kvaratskhelia and eventually sell Osimhen, in the scenario where they can’t agree a new deal with the striker.”
