Chelsea won again on Saturday with a 3-1 win over Southampton in the Premier League. The Blues have now won five of their seven games in the league, scoring 15 goals and conceding just three. Thomas Tuchel’s divisions also top the rankings going into the international break.
Chelsea have entered the race to sign a Colombian winger to play for Porto. Juventus are interested in a Blues star who has fallen in the pecking order under Thomas Tuchel.
In that regard, let’s take a look at Chelsea’s key transfer news from October 3, 2021.
Chelsea enter race for Luis Diaz . to capture
Chelsea is in the running for FC Porto winger Luis Diaz, according to Tribal Football. The Colombian joined the Portuguese side in 2019 and has since established himself as a crucial part of the first team. He has five goals and one assist from nine appearances this season and is sought after by a host of European heavyweights. The Blues have now been added to the list of his suitors.
Chelsea have burned their hands in recent times with the hiring of Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic. Neither player managed to hold onto a first-team spot, forcing the Blues to seek a solution in the market. Luis Diaz has appeared on their radar.
The 24-year-old prefers to play in left midfield, but is versatile enough to operate on either flank.
Chelsea, however, will not be given a walk with the Colombian. Luis Diaz is also wanted by Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool and could spark a bidding war for his services next year. Thomas Tuchel would like the player in his roster as the Blues could use more firepower down the flanks.
