Now according to today’s claims, Chelsea have done just that.
The reports say Chelsea are now considering a move to sign Lyon defender Mouctar Diakhaby.
Diakhaby’s performances have caught the attention of a number of top European clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester City and Serie A giants Juventus. The Daily Mail suggest Chelsea are weighing up a move for the highly-rated France Under-21 international, with Antonio Conte on the hunt for defensive reinforcements.
David Luiz’s future at Stamford Bridge is in serious doubt after the centre-back was involved in a bust-up with Conte at the club’s training ground. Asked about the Brazilian’s future following Chelsea’s defeat of Manchester United, Conte said:
‘I don’t know. He has to work really hard otherwise they are on the bench or in the stands.
‘Christensen for me today played a fantastic game with focus and great spirit. He’s 22 years old but showed a great personality. ‘For sure Christensen is the present and future for Chelsea. The same [is true] for [Ethan] Ampadu. I trust a lot in these two young players.’
