Chelsea Preparing Bid For Toulouse Defender Issa Diop
Reports are out claiming that Toulouse defender Issa Diop is a target for Chelsea.
The Sunday Mirror revealed that Diop is the next name on Antonio Conte’s shopping list.
The France Under-21 international has been playing for his hometown club Toulouse since he was a boy, but Chelsea boss Conte is now close to securing a £15million transfer.
Centre-half Diop, 20, stands an imposing 6ft 4in – and negotiations to bring him to Stamford Bridge are believed to be underway.
Chelsea need to beef up their defensive options and Diop – along with Andreas Christensen – will add competition.
