BREAKING NEWS: coming live from Fabrizio Romano, agreed and confirmed Chelsea have reportedly won the race ahead of Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool to sign Fulham star midfielder who has attracted serious interest ahead of the January transfer window. The Fulham star is said to be ready for a new challenge and sees Chelsea as his ideal next destination.


The Portuguese international was on the verge of signing a summer transfer with Bayern Munich when Fulham decided to back out of the agreement on Deadline Day because they were unable to find a replacement.

The former star of Sporting CP is reportedly eager for a fresh challenge and believes that Bayern would be the best place for him to go next.

But Premier League teams are starting to take notice and might persuade him to stay in England instead of going to Germany.

Palhinha has been targeted by Manchester United, Arsenal, and Liverpool in recent weeks. FootballTransfers exclusively revealed that Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will now focus on the Fulham player after learning Aston Villa’s asking price for Douglas Luiz.

According to our sources, Palhinha might set you back €58 million (£50 million) in 2024. If a high enough bid is submitted, a January move could be in the works.

Palhinha is what Chelsea wants.
According to Spanish publication Fichajes, Chelsea has entered the race to sign Palhinha as Mauricio Pochettino looks to strengthen his midfield.

The Blues manager still feels his team is lacking in coverage in the middle of the park and is looking to add one new player to fill that role, even with the arrivals of Moises Caicedo, Romeo Lavia, and Lesley Ugochukwu this summer.

If Chelsea is prepared to stray from their current practice of nearly exclusively signing players under the age of 25, Palhinha might prove to be that man. The Fulham midfielder doesn’t fit the pattern of Chelsea’s recent additions because he is 28 years old.

According to numerous reports, the Blues are also eager to add a new striker and defender in January.
