“Pay the money right now”, “I’m on my knees” – Chelsea fans thrilled as Blues make initial contact over bargain deal to sign defender who ‘supports’ the club


Chelsea fans have expressed their enthusiasm online after reports linked Lens full-back Jonathan Clauss with a move to Stamford Bridge in the summer. According to journalist Nizaar Kinsella, the Blues have made initial contact to secure the services of the 29-year-old Frenchman for just £10 million.

Clauss would be seen as a replacement for Cesar Azpilicueta if the Spaniard decides to leave the club in the coming months. The Frenchman is a Chelsea supporter which could play a big role in making the transfer happen.

However, Kinsella also reported that La Liga giants Atletico Madrid are also in the race to sign the 29-year-old. These rumors have thrilled Blues supporters on Twitter.

Some even believe that his allegiance towards the club could see him perform well for the club. Here are some tweets in that regard:

Clauss had an excellent 2021-22 season for Lens in Ligue 1. The 29-year-old played 37 times in the French league and contributed five goals and 11 assists along the way.

His form during last season also saw him make his debut for the French national team in March earlier this year.

As things stand, Clauss has earned four caps for France. He was also part of their UEFA Nations League squad in the recently concluded international break.
