Chelsea to bid for Presnel Kimpembe?

Presnel set for English move?

Paris St Germain centre back Presnel Kimpembe is wanted by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte as a long term replacement for John Terry, who will depart Stamford Bridge at the end of this season. Kimpembe is one of the best up and coming young defenders in Europe.

Kimpembe made his first team debut for PSG back in 2014 and has only recently forced his way into contention for the Paris side. This season he has played a total of 22 games so far as of the end of January and is widely considered to be France's top defensive talent.

There has been talk of a potential loan move to Chelsea but the Blues are known to favour a permanent deal and could even pay as much as 15 million euros to snap up the the 6 foot 22-year-old centre back.

Other teams known to be monitoring Kimpembe include Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
