Chelsea have become the latest team to be linked with a move for Ibrahim Sangare. PSV midfielder has become one of the most in-demand footballers in the market, with many expecting him to move to a bigger team at the end of the campaign.
The Blues have joined a long list of teams tracking the progress of Ivory Coast international. Sangare is considered one of the best midfielders in the Eredivisie, which is why PSV are unlikely to settle for any less than £30m for his services this summer.
Formerly of Toulouse, Ibrahim is a loved figure in the football analytics department due to his all-around abilities. A defensive midfielder by trade, the 24-year-old footballer, is proficient at winning the ball back for his team while being technically astute enough to distribute possession all around the park.
The Ivorian midfielder also offers the aggression and work ethic in the middle of the park, making the footballer quite an asset in the second line of press. His qualities could be ideally suited to Thomas Tuchel’s tactical setup, with the German manager particularly desperate to add more options to his defensive unit.
The Ivorian could be an excellent replacement for the Blues’ vice-captain. At only 24, the African midfielder might not offer as much experience or composure, but he has the mobility, work-ethic and defensive nous to become a successful number six in Thomas Tuchel’s setup. Luring the former Toulouse midfielder from PSV, though, could be a tricky task for the Blues.
