Chelsea have reportedly asked about what kind of wages Fulham star Tosin Adarabioyo would like ahead of a possible summer move

After the announcement was made by Thiago Silva just last week that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season, there has been endless speculation about defenders that CHELSEA could sign to replace the Brazilian star.

Some big names have been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge over the past few weeks – but it now seems that the Chelsea board are eyeing a move for the impressing Adarabioyo, who is also wanted by Premier League rivals Newcastle.

Fabrizio Romano confirmed that the Blues have also been in contact over a deal for the defender and has also revealed that they have enquired about the kind of wages that the big defender would like.

According to Fabrizio Romano, On The Here We Go Podcast, the Italian journalist said: “Tosin Adarabioyo, who’s going to leave Fulham, there are conversations with Newcastle, also Chelsea are informed of the situation of Tosin.

“So both clubs made contact to be informed on the wages, so the salary and all this kind of stuff for Tosin Adarabioyo, who’s going to leave Fulham at the end of the season. So keep an eye on these two clubs, Newcastle, because Eddie Howe really appreciates the player, and also Chelsea.”

The 26-year-old centre-back is a key player for the Cottagers but they have been unable to convince him to extend his contract, which expires in June.

Losing Thiago Silva was not a massive shock to the system for many CHELSEA fans that is for sure, many expected him to depart the club when his current contract ended at the club.

However – making a move for Adarabioyo will come as a shock to many, as he is not really the calibre of player that could come in and replace Silva – he is just a solid defender.

It will be interesting to see just who the club sign in the summer, but signing Adarabioyo will not get Chelsea’s rivals worried that is for sure.
