 Chelsea have gone mad. The Blues been spending record amounts of money late in this transfer window, as they look set to spend £185 million in a single position if the rumours linking them with Gvardiol are confirmed.

After a disappointing start to the season, Blues manager Thomas Tuchel is looking for reinforcements, and according to sports website The Athletic, an offer was made for Edson Alvarez of Ajax worth €50 million

With Mateo Kovacic is still recovering from an injury, N'Golo Kante is dealing with a hamstring issue, and Jorginho has had a challenging start to the season, the Blues are looking for a solution and they seem to have found it in the 24-year-old international from Mexico.

Alvarez, who left Club America in 2019 to join Ajax after signing a five-year contract, is known for his passing game, his strenght in the air and his tackles and interceptions. He has since played over 100 games for the Amsterdam club, as well as earned 58 caps for the Mexican National Team.

Should Edson Alvarez become a Chelsea player, it will be 266 millions in sales for Ajax.
