Chelsea have hijacked Newcastle United’s move for Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo and are set to complete the first signing of Enzo Maresca’s reign

Chelsea are once again expected to delve into that transfer kitty over the next few months as the club knows that he needs to improve certain areas of the squad.

Tosin is a player tat has been attracting all sorts of impact from from some big Premier League clubs in recent weeks and CHELSEA are reportedly interested in getting a transfer deal done

Tosin has also been targeted by Newcastle and Manchester United, who want to land him on a free transfer. With Raphael Varane leaving United, they are in need of central defenders.

But according to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea have already lined up a move for Adarabioyo, who is available on a free transfer, as Trevoh Chalobah’s replacement and are confident of winning the race to sign a player that is very highly rated.

Adarabioyo has certainly impressed this season for Fulham and it is easy to see why some big clubs are keen on a transfer deal.

But he needs to make the right move or he could ruin all that good development he has been achieving – and CHELSEA would be a massive move to make and one that he could thrive in.

If the reports are true and CHELSEA have submitted a contract offer to the powerhouse defender – then he would be joining one of the biggest sides in the Premier League and a club that could make a big impact next season – if they hire the right manager.

So it will be interesting to see where the powerhouse ends up as there has been alot of speculation about the defender.
