£77M star tells Chelsea he will consider January move after being offered contract to sign


RB Leipzig star Josko Gvardiol has told the likes of Chelsea that he would consider a January transfer window move

Graham Potter has signed a five-year deal at Chelsea after the club decided to get rid of German boss Thomas Tuchel after an indifferent start to the new season.

The former Brighton boss has reportedly been assured by owner Todd Boehly that he will be given plenty of time to implement his plans for the role.

And It seems Potter already has one eye on the January transfer window, with the Blues expected to reignite their interest in a move for Gvardiol at the turn of the year, according to Bild.

Gvardiol is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most promising young defenders and remains tied down to Leipzig until the summer of 2027

It is said that Chelsea are ready to again try in their efforts to land the defender, who they reportedly offered £77 million for towards the back end of the summer transfer window – despite the reports that he has been offered a new contract

What has he said?

The defender has suggested that he will reconsider his future in January, provided Chelsea reignite their interest.

I’m happy at Leipzig, I still have a lot to learn and need to work on myself.

‘I have people who deal with it, I didn’t think about a transfer. We’ll see what happens in the winter.

‘I feel great, I’m healthy. I was a little behind at the beginning of the season due to rehabilitation.

‘Now I’m waiting for the opportunity and minutes and I’m trying to use them in the best possible way.’

There will not be players at Chelsea that Potter really wants to keep hold of – and players that he believes will not be good enough to play the kind of football that he desires

It will be interesting to see just who he goes for when the winter transfer window opens up – as he will surely be given some money to spend

But it is interesting to see that one player that Ted Boehly wanted in the summer is the same one that Potter may go for – it suggests who is doing all the transfer business for the club

That is probably why Tuchel lost a bit of his spark – he was losing control of the players that were coming and going
