Chelsea is acting as the ‘contact agent’ for a potential transfer target wanted by Manchester United and Newcastle United.
Chelsea is said to have contacted the agent of a highly sought-after midfielder.
Chelsea has contacted Boubacar Kamara’s agent, a young midfielder who is also attracting interest from Manchester United and Newcastle.
The Blues are expected to face stiff competition for his signature from clubs across Europe, but even if they make progress, there could be a stumbling block that prevents the deal from being completed in the coming weeks.
Chelsea’s progress stalled over the holidays, with Thomas Tuchel’s team losing three of their last four Premier League games.
On Wednesday, however, a 2-0 EFL Cup semi-final first-leg win over Tottenham ensured a return to winning ways.
Despite having a depleted playing squad, they managed to get the job done, with Malang Sarr in defense and Saul Niguez in midfield.
While that aspect of the victory was encouraging, the threat of Covid outbreaks may encourage the Blues to recruit and add depth to their squad.

After an impressive start to the season with Marseille, Chelsea has reportedly contacted Kamara’s agent.
However, the player himself does not want to leave the French club this month, which is unfortunate for the Stamford Bridge faithful.
The Blues’ contact was therefore aimed at a summer signing, but they will have to compete with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, who are also rumored to have made contact.
Kamara made his Ligue 1 debut as a teenager for Marseille and has since made over 100 appearances.

He still has plenty of time to improve in defensive midfield at the age of 22, which has piqued the interest of some of Europe’s top clubs.
Eddie Howe of Newcastle and Ralf Rangnick of Manchester United are rumored to be among the interested parties and may throw their hats into the ring.
Clubs are free to work out a pre-contract agreement with the player now that he is in the final six months of his contract.
Chelsea may be able to obtain it as a result of this.
