Chelsea Reach Verbal Agreement To Sign £20m-Rated International Midfielder

The opening of the summer transfer window is fast approaching so we’ll bring you all the latest transfer rumours and gossip from around the globe. Today, Chelsea are linked with Kwadwo Asamoah….

Chelsea have reached a verbal agreement with Juventus to sign out-of-favour midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah this summer, according to the Express.

New boss Antonio Conte isn’t due to officially take charge at Stamford Bridge until he’s fulfilled his duties with Italy at this summer’s European Championships but it looks like he’s already got his new employers working on his transfer targets.

It appears the 46-year-old is ready to raid his former club as the Express are citing reports from Italian outlet CalcioMercatoWeb that claim Chelsea have identified Juventus winger Kwadwo Asamoah and have now reached a verbal agreement over a deal for his signature.

The newspaper suggests that the two clubs have been in negotiations for some time but talks are understood to have accelerated in recent days and Chelsea are now expected to complete the deal this summer.

These reports come after Gazzetta dello Sport claimed earlier this month that Roman Abramovich was willing to spend £20m on the 27-year-old with Juve eyeing Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez as a potential replacement.

Conte knows Asamoah well as he signed him for Juventus back in 2012 from Udinese and it looks as though the new Chelsea boss is keen for a reunion in West London this summer.

Asamoah was a regular under Conte and has helped Juve win four consecutive Serie A titles but he’s fallen out-of-favour under Massimo Allegri and has made just 13 appearances in all competitions this season.

The Ghana international is predominantly a left-winger but he’s also capable of playing as a wing-back or in central midfield so he’d certainly give Conte plenty of options if he does end up joining Chelsea.

Conte is expected to be busy in the market this summer as he looks to overhaul the Blues squad following a disastrous campaign and Asamoah could be the first of many new arrivals at Stamford Bridge over the coming weeks.
