Chelsea are reportedly open to parting ways with Lewis Hall, but the Blues have set a price tag of £30 million for the promising youngster, as revealed by The Telegraph.

Despite recently securing an extension to his contract until 2030, the 18-year-old defender’s future has become a subject of speculation.

Initially intended for a loan move, with Crystal Palace showing keen interest, the situation has evolved due to a burgeoning attraction from Newcastle.

The allure of the Magpies, who are seeking an alternative to Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney, has prompted Chelsea to consider a permanent transfer for Hall.

It’s worth noting that Newcastle has already invested £32 million this summer to acquire former Chelsea academy full-back Tino Livramento.
