Andreas Pereira news

Pereira to Chelsea?

Chelsea are reportedly plotting a shock move for former Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira.

The west London giants are currently unsure over the future of Mason Mount whose contract expires next summer.

Mount has shown no desire to pen an extension and he could be sold when the transfer window reopens this summer.

Amidst this, ESPN claim that the Blues are lining up a replacement in Pereira, who has been superb for Fulham this season.

The Brazilian signed for the Cottagers from the Red Devils at the start of the campaign. He has made eight goal contributions.

The Blues have been impressed by his progress and are now planning to bring him as a possible replacement for Mount.

Fulham are likely to sell him for a fee of around £35m and it is reported that Pereira would find it hard to snub a transfer.

Pereira is determined to prove himself at the top level, having previously failed to impress during his time with United.
