EPL: Gallas names player Chelsea should’ve signed instead of Fofana, Koulibaly


 Former Chelsea defender, William Gallas has said the Blues should have signed 2022 FIFA World Cup star, Josko Gvardiol last summer instead of bringing two ‘panic buys’, Wesley Fofana and Kalidou Koulibaly, to Stamford Bridge last summer.

Chelsea have been linked with a transfer move for Gvardiol, who featured in Croatia’s run to the World Cup semi-finals in Qatar.

And Gallas fears the Premier League giants have missed the boat regarding a deal for the RB Leipzig star as several other clubs have now expressed interest in striking a deal with the 20-year-old.

“Chelsea were linked with Gvardiol last summer, and they should’ve got him then,” Gallas told Genting Casino. “Instead, they got Fofana and Koulibaly.

“They already have Thiago Silva and Azpi [Azpilicueta], too, so it may be difficult to get Gvardiol now. At the start of the season, it would’ve been a good move, but I don’t know if it would be now.

“Chelsea panicked in the summer. They saw some players and put a lot of money towards them when for me, they didn’t meet their value.

“Some chairmen spend too much money when they’ve no idea what they are doing,” he added.
