Chelsea ‘set to open talks’ and get massive five-year deal signed and sealed

Fresh reports have claimed Chelsea are set to begin talks with Athletic Bilbao to sign their hugely exciting French centre back Aymeric Laporte in the January window.

Laporte is rated as one of the best talents in Europe at present and Arsenal have been leading the race to bring him in when the transfer window re-opens.

However, the latest set of rumours have claimed that Jose Mourinho is looking to sign him up as he is the idea candidate to replace the ageing Aymeric Laporte.

Now the Metro says contact is set to be made by the Portuguese boss, as he is ready to activate the £34 million clause and sign him up on a five-year deal. © 2017 Frontier Theme
