Chelsea has reported that they are positive about taking the signature of Gabriel Magalhaes, the star player from Lille along with another crucial signing with the club in line. Gabriel has been able to impress the Ligue 1 outfit for this season by appearing in 34 games across all major competitions. He also has the capability to offer a key balance at the back keeping in mind he is left-footed. Some of the granting goals have been a major problem for Chelsea particularly in this season and they could be on the course soon to bring all the things back.
It is also being reported that the club is optimistic about getting a deal done for the Brazil international as they are inclined to pay off £30m approximately for signing him to beat Everton and Arsenal under his signature. The name of Matt Targett, the ace player from Aston Villa, has been shortlisted and added to the list for searching a new left-back player along with Alex Telles, Achraf Hakimi, Ben Chilwell, Marc Cucurella, and Blas Riveros, who also has been mentioned specifically as probable targets.
It can be understood that one of the names from the six-player list will emerge as the long-term solution in the left-back position for Chelsea. Frank Lampard has already decided that both Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri are up to their mark. However, time will tell who will emerge as the priority player for Chelsea. But if Aston Villa fail to avoid the downgrading in Premier League this season, Matt Targett will be available in a deal with a price-cut as they would struggle to keep their top players and avoid seeing the number of fees they need to give them with the fear of falling in the Championship table.
