Chelsea are short of a central midfielder, anyone who watches them regularly can tell you that.

It’s not that they don’t have a stock of good players – they do. But as we saw earlier this season, the moment N’Golo Kante is hurt they have no direct replacement, and players like Saul and RLC can’t be expected to play to the same level as Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho.

One top central midfield star who was supposed to be on the market this summer is Frenkie de Jong. He’s done well at Barcelona, but the Spanish side also realise he’s a sale-able asset who can get them serious money.

Chelsea have been linked, but today’s copy of the Sun says it’s Bayern Munich who have actually made contact with his agents.

The Blues always seemed one of his less likely destinations – but either way, if we really want him, now is the time to make a move.
