Chelsea are likely to sign Saul Niguez on a deadline day transfer after talks with Marina Granovskaia.
Chelsea manager Marina Granovskaia has been seeking to sign Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez.
Chelsea are unlikely to sign Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez, despite Marina Granovskaia’s conversations with the club, according to reports. They’re still waiting for one more visitor. As the deadline approaches, they haven’t given up on Jules Kounde.
Chelsea has until 11 p.m. tonight to complete their roster.
Romelu Lukaku has been their most high-profile addition of the summer so far, having joined from Inter Milan in a £98 million deal.
Chelsea, on the other hand, wants more.
They’ve been attempting to sign Kounde from Sevilla for a few weeks now, and they’ve even sold Kurt Zouma to West Ham to make room.
Saul is also a fan of the Blues, with Atletico Madrid willing to allow the Spain international depart.
Fabrizio Romano, on the other hand, has provided an update on the pair’s deals.

Chelsea will make one more try to sign Kounde, but their agreement for Saul has been reportedly ‘completely stopped.’
On Twitter, he wrote, “Chelsea had a complicated and tense day for Jules Koundé negotiations with Sevilla.”
“Many times the deal was on the edge of collapsing, but today Chelsea will try again with the final push.
“Sevilla has such a strong position.
“The sale of Saal is now fully halted.”
With Chelsea seemingly set to lose out on Saul, Thomas Tuchel may have to make do with his present midfield alternatives.
