Chelsea Transfer Latest: £21m Luiz Signing Imminent?

Chelsea fans will be interested to know that its being reported that we are inches away from sealing Benfica defender Luiz in a £21 million deal, with the official announcement expected in the next couple of days. It’s also been said that Chelsea will loan out one or two players to Benfica in part exchange, with Aanholt, Bruma or Rajkovic (who is currently plying his trade at Vitesse in Eredivise) those being lined up for a move in the opposite direction. (Well it’s all paper talk for now).

Though he is a very costly signing for Chelsea, the biggest signing since Shevchenko, this lad has got huge potential in him and with a team like Chelsea he will be more capable to nurture his talent. The only thing I am dissatisfied with is the news that we will loan out players and for me, I would prefer Bruma to go out rather than Aanholt considering that there is no backup for Ashley Cole right now.

    Loaning out talent is the best way to keep a player match fit and gain invaluable experience, especially nec for young player growth and maturity. Luiz can play across back four and if you check YouTube you will see him score a fk from a lb position, from about 35 yds out!

    yup agree with armend..
    we still got another youngster on the lb position. why can we give Ryan Bertnard a chance to show his talent.
    Also for Michael Manciane & Jack Cork, I think they can be a good player for Chelsea.
    Nevertheless whatever Chelsea do, I 100% support them. Go Chelsea.

    Whoever goes in loan it doesn’t matter. But it’s heard that some of dem are gonna b sold that wl b the worst news . Zhirkhov can play leftback as wel as Flo malouda . If luiz comes he can also play in lb position . It wl b gud for Aanholt to get some first team experience if he plays there .
