Chelsea in the battle to sign €60m-rated Premier League midfielder

Chelsea have already made an enquiry to sign Bruno Guimaraes. Newcastle United midfielder is also a target for Real Madrid. Brazil international joined the Magpies from Lyon back in January for a fee of nearly £40m. And Guimaraes has been an exceptional signing for Newcastle United.

Bruno has taken to the PL like a duck to water and is currently one of the most exciting midfield talents in English football. It is no surprise that top clubs like Chelsea and Real Madrid are monitoring his situation. He has shown that he has the quality to thrive at the highest level he could certainly make his mark at the top clubs in the near future.

The Blues desperately need midfield reinforcements, especially with Jorginho and Kante nearing the end of their deals at Chelsea. Both footballers will be free agents in the summer and the Blues have not managed to agree on a deal extension with either of them.

Chelsea will open negotiations with both footballers regarding an extension, and it stays to be seen how the situation develops. Meanwhile, summer signing Denis Zakaria could look to terminate his loan deal in January after failing to make a single appearance since joining the Blues.

The South American midfielder is well-settled in the PL, and he could make an immediate impact at Stamford Bridge if the transfer goes through.
