Chelsea scouts present at recent European game this weekend to watch defender

Chelsea’s scouts were reportedly present at a game in Europe this weekend as they look at new defenders for the next transfer window.

Leny Yoro was in action for Lille against Le Havre at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Ligue 1 on Saturday. Paulo Fonseca’s side won the match 3-0.

The 18-year-old started the game and was deployed as the right centre-back.

HITC reports that both Manchester United and Chelsea were present at Stade Pierre-Mauroy to watch Yoro in action.

Chelsea have been linked with many young centre backs going forward as they look to replace Thiago Silva in the summer when his contract runs out, and probably even Trevoh Chalobah, who is also expected to leave Stamford Bridge in the next transfer window.

Yoro is a top young talent and it is clear that he will soon be snapped up by one of the big guns in Europe pretty soon now. Chelsea may well be one of the clubs who decide to make a move.
