Chelsea face increased competition for Godfred Donsah

  Chelsea face increased competition for Godfred Donsah Chelsea are listed among a host of suitors for highly-rated Bologna midfielder Godfred Donsah, but his agent believes that his transfer value has risen since the summer. The 21-year-old moved to Serie A in January 2012 when he left Ghanaian side DC United to join the Palermo youth ranks and he’s developed into one of Serie A’s finest young talents. Capped four times by the Ghana U20 side, Donsah has been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Juventus, Arsenal and Everton in recent times, but the midfielder’s agent has hinted that a January transfer to Inter Milan is a possibility. “Yes, I think it’s possible. Inter is a great club, and would be an important opportunity for him. Inter is a top club and everyone aspires to play in such a prestigious team.” Donsah has made five appearances in Serie A this season but back in the summer he was close to a move to Roma before Bologna blocked the transfer. “Was he close to Roma this summer? I can confirm it. Bologna considered him to be untouchable, and maybe the Giallorossi weren’t able to make an offer that could change their minds.” “Now I’m certain that if Inter were 100% convinced of registering him, they’d be able to reach an agreement with him.” “Sabatini? Yes, he likes him a lot, he brought Afriyie Acquah to Palermo and also showed interest in Godfred. And Spalletti likes him, too.” “This summer his price was around the €8-10 million mark, but now the price of a transfer may have increased, who knows.” Chelsea spent big on bringing in two central midfielders in the summer in Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater but Donsah could be another talented young player the Blues could groom.

Chiesa has already netted twice this season in the Italian top flight and his value will only continue to rise if he keeps up his impressive form throughout the course of the season.

Napoli’s president claims that he made an official approach for Chiesa a few weeks ago but at the moment, Fiorentina are not open to any negotiations as they have already sold one of their star product Federico Bernadeschi to Italian champions Juventus.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will be hoping that their shared Italian descent will convince the youngster to move to Stamford Bridge.
