Chelsea are reportedly keen on signing Malang Sarr on a free transfer, a report from L’Equipe claims.
The centre-back parted ways with Nice following the expiry of his contract on June 30 and he has since been on the search for a new club
It is now reported that the Blues have opened negotiations to land the 21-year-old’s signature and plan to loan him out for the 2020/21 season.
Sarr made 119 appearances for Nice between 2016 and 2020 and he decided against signing a new deal despite their ambitious project under Patrick Vieira.
The Gunners have already agreed on a deal worth £27m for the Brazilian centre-back and an announcement could be made in the forthcoming days.
