Chelsea considering move for Wolves defender

Nelson Semedo news

Semedo to Chelsea?

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Nelson Semedo in January.

The Blues are currently without Reece James with a knee injury and he may not return to action until the festive fixtures in late December.

In his absence, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Cesar Azpilicueta and Christian Pulisic have all played at right wing-back, but none have impressed.

According to journalist Simon Phillips, the Blues will look to address the concern in January and have their sights on landing Semedo.

He said: "Chelsea also like Nelson Semedo from Wolves and are considering him as an option to come in to give competition for Reece James."

Chelsea's season has been faltering in the early months and they are currently lying sixth on the Premier League table with just 21 points.

They have a tough run of games against Arsenal and Newcastle United in the top-flight before the enforced break due to the World Cup.

Chelsea fans will hope that their team can pick up maximum points.
