GOOD MORNING CHELSEA FANS
Chelsea have exercised an option to extend Billy Gilmour’s contract by 12 months.
The 21-year-old Scot’s contract at Stamford Bridge now runs until 2024.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are considering a swoop for Wolves full-back Rayan Ait-Nouri.
Ait-Nouri would rival and provide cover for Ben Chilwell at left-back at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are also reportedly dreaming of signing Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus this summer.
But luring him away from Juve won’t be easy.
That’s because the Old Lady plans to build her defense around De Ligt, according to the Chelsea Chronicle.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are reportedly confident they can land Ousmane Dembele and Jules Kounde in a double transfer.
Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is keen on the winger and pursued him last season.
And new club owner Todd Boehly is ready to provide the funds to fulfill Tuchel’s wishes, according to Give Me Sport.
Along with Dembele, the Blues are set to complete the £68.5million signing of Kounde from Sevilla, the report adds.
Finally, Nemanja Matic has landed in Italy ahead of his free transfer from Manchester United to Roma.
He will meet with former Chelsea and United manager Jose Mourinho in the capital for the third time.
Matic was pictured at Rome’s Ciampino Airport earlier today, where he was only too happy to wave at the camera.
