Patrick Dorgu emerges as defensive target for London clubs
Chelsea is evidently interested in signing Patrick Dorgu, a potential Serie A player, to strengthen their defensive squad. The 19-year-old Lecce defender has made waves in Italian football and has proven himself as a key for his present team.
Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are both thought to be interested in signing Dorgu on a long-term basis.
Dorgu looms as a potential answer as Chelsea attempts to enhance its left-back options. With speculations circling about Ian Maatsen’s likely exit and Marc Cucurella still finding his feet, Chelsea is looking to add to its defensive ranks. Ben Chilwell is currently the Blues’ only reliable left-back, requiring the recruitment of new talent.
Meanwhile, Tottenham is looking for defensive depth and sees Dorgu as a viable candidate for the left-back position.
With Ben Davies reaching the end of his career and Ryan Sessegnon failing to live up to expectations, Dorgu might give the essential competition for the starting place, battling Destiny Udogie.
The fight for Dorgu’s signing is anticipated to heat up in the coming months, with both English teams considering a substantial offer to entice Lecce to leave in January.
As Mauricio Pochettino’s guidance has the ability to mold Dorgu into a top-tier defender, it remains to be seen which of the London teams will make a compelling bid to grab the precocious youngster’s services.
