Chelsea transfer news and rumours

PSG left-back Laywin Kurzawa is the latest left-back name in the frame with a loan deal touted.

He would arrive to fill the hole left by Ben Chilwell who is out injured, with only Marcos Alonso left to cover the position. Emerson Palmieri, who is currently out on loan at Lyon, could also be recalled to the club if a transfer deal fails to materialise.

Veteran winger Ivan Perisic has once again been linked with a move to the Premier League with his Inter contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Defensive stars Jules Kounde (Sevilla) and Presnel Kimpembe (PSG) have also been linked with switches to Stamford Bridge to shore up the backline.

The future of Armando Broja remains up in the air following his upturn in form on loan at Southampton. He is likely to see out the season with the Saints, but his eye-catching displays could see him remain in west London beyond this season.
