Chelsea Set To Sign Ligue 1 Star

The blues will reportedly switch focus to signing Jonathan Ikone from Lille should they fail to agree a deal with Bayer Leverkusen for their starman Kai Havertz.

Chelsea remain locked in discussions with Bayer Leverkusen over a transfer for Kai Havertz, who is reportedly keen on pushing through a transfer to the blues.

However, the longer negotiations drag on the more likely the blues are to look for other options and, according to Le 10 Sport, Ikone is being considered as an ideal choice.

4 cap Frenchman known as Ikone, previously touted as a target for BVB, scored 3 goals and 6 assists in Ligue 1 from attacking midfield last season

Lille value the Frenchman in the region of £32m mark - a substantial saving on the £90m Bayern Leverkusen are after for fellow playmaker kai Havertz.

Ikone has spent the past 2 campaigns at Lille following stints with Montpellier and Paris Saint-Germain, where Ikone started his football career.
