Chelsea is ready to splash out £66.4million for the signatures of Marco Reus and Marek Hamšík [Star]. Chelsea boss, José Mourinho is a huge fan of Reus, and with likely changes coming to Dortmund this summer, the German winger could find himself looking for a new club. Borussia Dortmund officials have reportedly demanded a £40million bid for their star, and Mourinho is ready to match that.
Reus could either take Willian’s position on the right wing, or he could push Oscar out of the first team as an attacking midfielder. Marek Hamšík is an attacking midfielder for the Italian side Napoli. He is now 27 years old, and plays on the Slovakian international team. His fee is rumored to be around £26.4million, and would add another option in Chelsea’s midfield.
Marco Reus, will be one of the most intriguing stories this summer. With the departure of Jürgen Klopp after the end of this season, and the imminent transfers of İlkay Gündoğan, and Mats Hummels, Reus could follow suit and see his way out of the Westfalenstadion this summer. Marco Reus is a world class player, and has attracted interest from some of Europe’s largest clubs including Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and now Chelsea. The winger seems to be extremely prone to injuries, and could be a risky signing for Chelsea, but if he can stay fit, he would end up being a great player for José Mourinho.
Marek Hamšík is an extremely underrated player, with discipline matched with his unreal passing and laser shots; he could become a star in the Premier League. The Slovakian will probably be interested in leaving Napoli for Stamford Bridge, but it would most likely require the sale of Oscar. Hamšík would not have a spot on the first team if Oscar was still playing for Chelsea next season, and the 27 year old attacking midfielder will not enjoy sitting on the bench. Hamšík would be a great signing, and plays a similar style of football to Oscar, but plays a sharper game, making fewer mistakes.
This is fantastic news for Chelsea fans, and it will surely be an interesting story as soon as the summer transfer window kicks open.
