90min said Chelsea have been closely monitoring Leny Yoro, people on the Lille payroll. This 17-year-old defender has started 7 consecutive matches for Lille. In fact, he became the second youngest player from a Ligue I representative to debut for the club, surpassing Eden Hazard, when he was introduced at the end of the 2021/22 season.
According to reports, Chelsea scouts were impressed with Yoro’s performances in the Lille first team. In addition, Man Utd, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund have all followed this young player.
The report also says that Lille wants to quickly renew with Yoro as the current contract expires in the summer of 2025.
If Chelsea decide to make an official transfer move for Yoro, they may want a deal similar to what has been done with Malo Gusto and Christopher Nkunku recently.
The plan would be to allow Yoro to stay at Lille for the remainder of the season before joining the Blues next summer.
