Chelsea and Liverpool set to battle it for experienced international

Fenerbahce defender Simon Kjaer, is a subject of transfer interest from Liverpool and Chelsea. The experienced Dane has drawn the attention of some of Europe’s top sides with his performances this season.

Since joining from Lille two years ago, Simon Kjaer has consistently performed for the Turkish giants, this has made him one of the fan’s favourites.

But Fenerbarce are planning to overhaul their team this summer, and they want to add younger players to their ranks. It is believed that they will listen to offers for the 28 year old and hope to make at least £10 Million from his sale.

Antonio Conte wants to replace out-going John Terry with an experienced defender and sees Simon Kjaer as that kind of player. The Blues wants him to add his European experience to their team as they return to Europe next season.

Liverpool also want him to add more experience to their team. Their defence has been Liverpool’s biggest problems this season, and Jurgen Klopp wants to bring in experienced and talented defenders to help them solve this problem.

Fenerbahce would be happy to see Chelsea and Liverpool go head to head for the defender as that will only drive his transfer fee up.
