Chelsea are considering a January move for Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez

Chelsea are considering signing Atlético Madrid defender José Giménez in January.

With Graham Potter recently appointed as Chelsea manager, the club is beginning a rebuild where many players will be leaving and Potter will be looking to bring in certain players who suit his system.

Potter currently has a squad full of players from previous managers, so in the coming transfer windows, he will be looking to shape his side if Chelsea gives him time to do so.

One player they are now being linked with is Atletico Madrid defender Gimenez, with Rudy Galetti reporting that Chelsea could make a move for him in January.

The report claims that after failing to qualify for the next round of the Champions League, Atletico could be under pressure to sell due to financial problems.

Giménez would be an excellent addition to the Chelsea squad and could be Thiago Silva’s replacement. Silva has been imperative for Chelsea, but the Brazilian isn’t getting any younger, and with Gimenez being more than ten years younger than Silva, he could be the ideal long-term replacement.
