Chelsea enter race for Kondogbia


AS Monaco midfielder wanted by Premier League duo

Premier League giants Arsenal and Chelsea are set to battle it out for AS Monaco midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia.

The powerhouse has been a standout performer for the Ligue 1 side this season, and scored at the Emirates Stadium earlier this season during the French side’s shock 3-1 win over The Gunners in the Champions League.

Kondogbia has been at the heart of Monaco‘s midfield throughout the season and has recently been tied down to a long-term contact which will expire in 2018.

Premier League Interest

Despite the long-term deal, both Chelsea and Arsenal are still reportedly keen on signing the midfielder over the Summer and could bid as high as £25million.

The Frenchman’s stock has risen quickly over the last 12-months and he could earn himself a mega-money move to the Premier League at the end of the season.

Chelsea to rival Arsenal

The 22-year-old looked like he was set for a move to Arsenal if anywhere, but Chelsea have now reportedly entered the race and could make a formal move in the Summer.

Jose Mourinho is keen to add depth to his title-winning side and could bring in Kondogbia to help Nemanja Matic in the heart of Chelsea’s midfield.
