After receiving a contract offer from the Blues, the £77 million star informs Chelsea that he will consider moving in January.
The star player for RB Leipzig, Josko Gvardiol, has let clubs like Chelsea know that he’d be open to relocating during the January transfer window.
Graham Potter has agreed to a five-year contract with Chelsea after the club’s decision to remove German manager Thomas Tuchel following a disappointing start to the new season.
The former Brighton manager is rumored to have received a commitment from owner Todd Boehly that he will have plenty of time to realize his career goals.
Potter also seems to be keeping an eye on the January transfer window, as Bild reports that the Blues are likely to resume their interest in signing Gvardiol at the beginning of the new year.
Gvardiol, one of the most talented young defenders in Europe, has a deal with Leipzig that runs through the summer of 2027.
Despite the claims that the defender has been extended a new deal, it is claimed that Chelsea are prepared to redouble their attempts to sign the defender, for whom they reportedly bid £77 million toward the close of the summer transfer season.
The defender now says that if Chelsea renews their interest, he will reevaluate his options in January.
“Though I still have a lot to learn and improvement to do, Leipzig is a joyful place for me.
“I don’t think about a transfer; I have people that deal with it.” The winter will reveal itself, I suppose.
“I’m in terrific shape and feel great. During the first part of the season, I fell a little behind because of my recovery.
“Right now, I’m waiting for the right moment and opportunity, attempting to make the most of both.”
