CONFIRMED: Chelsea in talks with 26-year-old World Cup winner as Reece James replacement

Chelsea transfer news: Why Benjamin Pavard would be the perfect replacement for Reece James

According to reports, Chelsea is considering Benjamin Pavard of Bayern Munich as a possible transfer target.

Chelsea are reportedly interested in Bayern Munich’s Benjamin Pavard as a potential transfer target.

A renowned defender, Pavard has three Bundesliga league championships to his credit.

The 26-year-old right back, who has four goals this season in 21 games across all competitions for the German club Bayern Munich, is frequently given the starting spot. It’s important to note that he is also a capable center-back.

He has now joined the France team for the World Cup in Qatar, and he played a significant role four years ago when his nation won the competition.

Numerous elite European clubs are interested in signing Pavard, according to Sport.

According to reports, the full-back will leave Bayern Munich in 2023 as a result of a dispute with Julian Nagelsmann, his manager.

According to the report, Barcelona is a potential buyer for Pavard and has rekindled their prior interest in him.

In addition, Real Madrid, Chelsea, and AC Milan have looked into signing him.

Given that Pavard’s current contract has 18 more months before it expires, Sport reports that Bayern Munich will hope to recoup the entire €35m (£31m) sum they paid for Pavard in 2019.

Without a doubt, Chelsea needs to find a replacement for Reece James, who regrettably won’t be representing England at the World Cup.

On paper, Pavard appears to be a fantastic addition to the Stamford Bridge team.

James could face competition from him due to his talent at right back, but he is also adaptable enough to play center back.

It’s critical the team quickly bolsters this area of the squad given the recent injury to James, which has left a significant gap in the starting lineup down the right flank.
