Chelsea are reportedly setting sights on Newcastle defender Sven Botman, marking him as a primary target for their summer defensive bolster.

Under Mauricio Pochettino’s guidance, the Blues are contemplating a move for the 24-year-old Dutch international, considering the Magpies’ challenges with the Premier League’s financial regulations, according to TEAMtalk.

Botman, celebrated for his Premier League prowess and international experience, has emerged as a coveted figure within Stamford Bridge’s strategic planning.

Despite Newcastle’s reluctance to dispatch a vital asset to a direct competitor for European spots, there’s an acknowledgment that player sales might be essential for squad enhancements.
