By on June 16, 2012

The summer transfer window is open and Football Talk will bring you all the latest Chelsea transfer news.. Today, the Blues are linked with France defender Mathieu Debuchy.

Mathieu Debuchy

Chelsea are ready to move for French right back Mathieu Debuchy, according to the Mirror.

The reports claims that the Lille ace has been strongly linked with a £6m move to Newcastle this summer but Blues owner Roman Abramovich is set to hijack the deal and tempt the defender to Stamford Bridge.

Debuchy has been in impressive form at Euro 2012 so far, with his displays against England and Ukraine catching the eye of Chelsea officials.

Despite speculation suggesting the 26-year-old was set to move to St James’ Park, the Mirror claim the European champions will now prove stiff competition for his signature with new boss Roberto Di Matteo looking to strengthen the right back position following the departure of Jose Bosingwa.

It’s believed that Branislav Ivanovic, who was a regular at full back last season, is now wanting to move back to his preferred central role, leaving a hole to fill at right back.

Ajax’s Gregory van der Wiel has also been linked with a move to West London, but at £6m Debuchy is considered a far better piece of business.

FT Verdict

This would be a superb signing for Chelsea and sort out an area that has proved troublesome in the past.

Ivanovic filled in well at right back last season but is more comfortable in the centre, and if Chelsea can snap up Debuchy for as little as £6m, then it could prove to be the buy of the summer.

    It’l indid be chelsea’s wisest buy this summer should it come to reality. Following his performance in d ongoing euros tournament, Debuchy has proven to be a better defender to VDM, who is more expensive. I believe he’d opt for chelsea, juz as Hazard, his former team mate @Lille, did. GO ABRAHIMOVIC!! GO CHELSEA!!

    It will be a great business only if chelsea succeeded in having his signature. When will all these rumour come into reality? I think chelsea seriously need a roving/creative midfielder now.

      Sir Ibrahimovich and bluz funs, i think no need for another triker since we have sturridge who proved his centre forward position at bolton and lukaku,they can be torres’s back ups…we just need hulk as a right winger,debuchy and modric..pliz think about it.

    It will be a good signing provided that it later go through. All we need is Dbuchy(RB), Modric (MF)- now that Tot have problems & Hulk as winger. We have no problem in CF because we have more than enough- F Torres, D Sturrige & Lukaku

    Debuchy and Facao will be a good buy for Chelsea as there is going to be many options at the defense and attack for Di Matteo to select from. Remember there is going to be many matches to play this season. People like Malouda, perreira, and Hillario, should make way for new and fresh guys to move in. I also want to thank the Mr Roman Abrahamovic and his management for giving Di Matteo a chance to continue to make us happy. Up Blues!!!
