Chelsea are interested in former Manchester United winger Deji Sotona, according to reports from England.
Who is Deji Sotona?
For those who don’t know, Deji Sotona is currently on the books of Ligue 1 team OGC Nice.
The 19-year-old would be signed by Nice in September 2020 after leaving Manchester United on a free transfer.
Sotona had previously spent several years in Man United’s youth. During that time, he would score five goals and assist two in 20 U18 games.
Sotona also appeared once for Manchester United U23s but the club apparently didn’t see enough in him to offer him a new deal.
Sotona has not made an appearance in the senior team for Nice since then.
Chelsea linked to Deji Sotona?
Now, however, it seems that Sotonas may come to an end in France for a short time.
The Telegraph reports that Sotona will return to the PL after failing to join Chelsea earlier this year:
Former Manchester United winger Deji Sotona is set to return to the Premier League from Nice after failing to join Chelsea in the last window.
The report adds that Chelsea remain interested in the teenager, while Tottenham and Scottish powerhouse Celtic are also attributed an interest:
Chelsea, along with Tottenham and Celtic, remain interested in the 19-year-old.
