Chelsea offers €50M for Edson Alvarez in case N’Golo Kante signs with PSG
The 2022–23 season’s rosters are being finalized by teams as the summer transfer window draws to a close. As PSG nears signing N’Golo Kante, Chelsea is now focusing on a Mexican star for €50 million with one day left for Premier League transfers. As it comes to an end, the summer transfer window of 2022 is offering many big-ticket transactions. Chelsea is working to strengthen its roster, but the Blues have struggled as some other teams, particularly Barcelona, have taken some of the players they had set as their primary targets for this season.
As previously stated, Paris Saint-Germain is keeping an eye on N’Golo Kante because the French national team has always favored the midfielder. As Chelsea work to find the best alternative in case their player leaves with only one day remaining in the summer transfer window, this decision may have an impact on other leagues. The summer transfer window for teams in the Premier League, La Liga, and Bundesliga close on September 1st. In the event that N’Golo Kante quits, Chelsea may now have a backup plan in Edson Alvarez.
After losing to Southampton on Matchday 5, Chelsea reportedly made a €50 million offer for the Mexican midfielder, according to the Telegraaf. Edson Alvarez informed Ajax of his desire to play in the Premier League and their willingness to release him due to the attractiveness of the offer. N’Golo Kante still has one year left on his Chelsea deal, but PSG is interested in signing him this summer. Before he becomes a free agent, the Blues want to add some cash and ensure they have a strong alternative in place. Since moving to Europe in 2019, Edson Alvarez is having one of his best seasons right now.
