According to FootMercato, the Blues have received a boost in the race for one of the club’s transfer targets.
The report claims Ligue 1 club St-Etienne are prepared to accept £22million for their 17 year old midfielder Lucas Gourna-Douath.
Gourna-Douath has been heavily linked with a move to the Blues and St-Etienne may be forced into selling at the end of the season because of the financial impact of coronavirus.
Gourna-Douath is an all-action defensive screen who can operate deep or in central midfield with an impressive work rate and an innate gift for recovering the ball.
