Aymeric Laporte

According to reports, Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea are making efforts to secure the signing of Manchester City center-back Aymeric Laporte. However, it’s worth noting that Tottenham Hotspur also shows interest in the player.

According to Italian journalist Rudy Galetti, Chelsea has reportedly made inquiries about Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte. Despite the absence of ongoing negotiations between Chelsea and Manchester City, the fact that the Blues have sought information about Aymeric Laporte suggests a keen interest in the Spanish central defender.

The reporter said:

“Aymeric Laporte is among the names on the list of Chelsea as a possible reinforcement this summer.”

“No talks are ongoing to date. Chelsea’s aim is to strengthen other roles but, in the past weeks, the Blues requested info on him.”

How can Aymeric Laporte prove to be effective in Chelsea or Tottenham?

Despite no ongoing talks between Chelsea and Manchester City for Aymeric Laporte, Chelsea express strong interest in the Spanish central defender. This development could be a setback for Tottenham Hotspur. Since, they were also showing interest in acquiring Laporte. According to The Mirror, Manchester City is seeking a transfer fee of £60 million for the 29-year-old defender.

It is true that the high transfer fee of £60 million for Aymeric Laporte. Combined with his limited playing time last season and age of 29, could present challenges for both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in signing him. Additionally, Laporte’s lack of potential resale value might be a factor that clubs consider when evaluating the financial aspects. These factors could make it difficult for the clubs to justify the expenditure. Thus, negotiate a deal with Manchester City for Laporte’s services.

Aymeric Laporte experienced success with Manchester City and won major trophies like the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. Thus, may have a strong desire to continue competing at the highest level and aim for more titles. The prospect of joining a club like Chelsea or Tottenham Hotspur, who may not be immediate title contenders, could potentially impact Laporte’s interest in a move. Players often prioritize the opportunity for success and silverware when considering their transfer options.
