Chelsea is reportedly interested in securing the services of PSV midfielder Ibrahim Sangare as part of their summer spending spree.
According to the Mirror, the Stamford Bridge hierarchy has been keeping an eye on Sangare as they prepare to cash in on the next transfer window.
Why are Chelsea tracking Ibrahim Sangare?
Many Premier League teams have shown interest in the Ivorian international, including Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, among others.
He has been a dominant force in PSV’s midfield, helping the club finish second in the Eredivisie and reach the Europa Conference League semi-finals.
It’s also crucial to keep track of his specific data.
The 24-year-old is ranked second in the Dutch top division in terms of interceptions made per game (2.5), ninth in terms of passes per game (70.7), and second in terms of tackles made per game by WhoScored.com (3.3).
It should come as no surprise that English teams have reportedly viewed his skill set favorably since he is clearly a well-rounded prospect.
Especially because Chelsea paid the same price for N’Golo Kante in 2016, and he could be obtained for as little as £30 million (Mirror).
