Chelsea suffer transfer blow as highly-rated full-back prefers a move to Bundesliga giants over the Blues

Posted by

Chelsea target Faouzi Ghoulam would opt for a move to Bayern Munich over the Blues, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, as reported by Calciomercato.

Ghoulam has firmly established himself as one of the Serie A’s best left-backs during his time at Napoli. He has made 119 appearances for the Italian giants, but has never found the back of the net in a Napoli shirt. His good form in Italy appears to have captured the attention of some household names from abroad.

As per Calciomercato both Chelsea, Juventus and Bayern Munich are all interested in securing his services. The Blues are in dire need of a new left-back, with Marcos Alonso being Antonio Conte’s only option in that position. He may have to look elsewhere than Ghoulam, however.

La Gazzetta dello Sport believe that the Algerian would prefer a move to Bayern over joining Chelsea. That’s a bitter blow for Conte.
