Chelsea to develop some more youngsters with Simakan:

Chelsea have been well-known for their spending spree in the transfer window.

The Blues bought some wonderful players in the summer window of 2020, such as Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Edouard Mendy, and Malang Sarr.

Another young defender Malang Sarr is now currently on loan to FC Porto. The Pensioners are well-known for their loaning system and the development of some bright superstars.

Mohamed Simakan would be a worthy addition for Chelsea. However, the competition for centre-backs would get intense.

The injuries have been concerning and Simakan would be a perfect back-up defender who can even play as a right-back. Although the youngster is available for a cheap rate for Chelsea around €15 million, it will be interesting if the London team will go for him.
