Chelsea prepare to lure Atletico’s Jose Giminez to London – Talk Chelsea
Posted On March 10, 2021
Atletico Madrid centre-back Jose Giminez has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge from the Spanish capital. The Uruguayan defender’s commanding presence in the back line has so far been greatly influential for Diego Simeone’s side.
According to The Athletic, the Blues are keen on capturing the signature of the Uruguayan whose contract runs out with the Rojiblancos in 2023.
Although upgrading Chelsea’s defence is least of Thomas Tuchel’s concern at the moment – having made history with a clean sheet against Everton, the Chelsea boss is already keeping tabs on the transfer market in light of potential signings.
He has solidified Chelsea at the back but however, the German is apparently still keen on bolstering his last line of players.
Giminez is a versatile defender capable of drifting all around the defensive half, as a full-back and also a defensive midfielder.
Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger have been the mainstay in the Chelsea back three in recent matches. Tremendous defensive efforts have seen Chelsea concede just two in the last eleven matches.
Thiago Silva, Emerson, Marcos Alonso, Reece James & Kurt Zouma are the other big names the club possesses as defensive options.
