Chelsea will look to continue their fine pre-season form when they face Newcastle United on Thursday in the USA.

The Blues have already got off to a flying start in the Premier League Summer Series after they secured a 4-3 victory against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Despite a great start to their pre-season preparations, the West Londoners are still working hard to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s has bolstered his attacking options with the signings of Nicolas Jackson and Cristopher Nkunku, but several stars have also departed.

Chelsea have now turned their attention to revamping their midfield after losing the likes of Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante, Kai Havertz and Mateo Kovacic this summer.

The Blues have been heavily linked with a move for Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo, but it appears that they could now be closing in on the signing of an Eredivisie forward.

Mohammed Kudus is reportedly close to going the Blues this Summer.

According to Football Insider, Chelsea are close to agreeing personal terms with Ajax attacking midfielder Mohammed Kudus.

The report claims that that the Blues have agreed a £40m fee with the Amsterdam-based side for the sale of the attacker. 

Kudus is keen to join the West London side this summer, according to the report.

Mohammed Kudus, 22, joined the Dutch giants in 2020 from Danish side Nordsjaelland for a fee of around £7 million.

Since arriving in the Netherlands, the Ghanaian has set the capital alight, scoring 23 goals and providing 11 assists for Ajax in 84 appearances across all competitions.

The youngster has also been a bright spark on the international stage for Ghana, scoring seven goals in his 24 Black Stars appearances.

The Blues will be hoping they can bring the player into their side so that he can provide a creative spark for Pochettino’s side this season, as they look to improve on on their 12th-placed finish in the division last term.
