Chelsea set to beat Tottenham to sign £40m-rated Uruguay international Star

Chelsea set to beat Tottenham to sign £40m-rated Uruguay international Star.

Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez is reportedly a target for Chelsea. For a while now, the 27-year-old has been considered one of La Liga’s top center backs.

Chelsea may have acquired Wesley Fofana and Kalidou Koulibaly, but Fofana is currently sidelined with a long-term injury, and the Blues are looking to bolster their defense after pursuing free agents Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen in the summer.

Cesar Azpilicueta has lost some of his best form, while Thiago Silva isn’t getting any younger. Koulibaly hasn’t been reliable this season so far.

If the Blues want to finish in the top four this year, Graham Potter must quickly fix their defensive issues. Whether Todd Boehly will support the Englishman in the upcoming transfer window is unknown.

The defensive unit will benefit greatly from the addition of Jose Gimenez, who is currently in the height of his powers. In the upcoming years, the Uruguayan international could play alongside Chalobah and Fofana at the center of Chelsea’s defense.

Gimenez is being watched by a number of top European clubs in addition to Chelsea, who are also interested in him. According to a recent report, Tottenham Hotspur is one of the Premier League clubs considering a move for the Uruguayan.
