Chelsea fans believe their club have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Bournemouth defender Milos Kerkez after an unusual social media post from the Hungarian.

Kerkez, 20, has been listed as a possible transfer target ahead of the summer window as the Blues pursue a new left-back.

The Guardian have reported that Ian Maatsen and Marc Cucurella are likely to be sold this summer, while Lewis Hall’s loan move to Newcastle United is expected to be made permanent, despite his lack of involvement during the 2023-24 season.

As a result, Chelsea are hoping to sign a new left-back to provide competition for Ben Chilwell, who has been notoriously injury-prone over the past few years.

Gent’s Archie Brown has been mentioned as a possible new arrival, while CBS reporter Ben Jacobs has confirmed that Bournemouth star Kerkez is also being watched by the Stamford Bridge outfit following an impressive start to life in the Premier League.

The Hungary international joined Andoni Iraola’s side from AZ Alkmaar last summer and he has caught the eye during his debut English top flight campaign.

Manchester United are also reportedly interested in signing the 20-year-old as they look to sign a young left-back amid the injury troubles suffered by both Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia.

Chelsea fans believes Milos Kerkez will sign for the Blues

Despite competition from Man Utd, Chelsea supporters believe Kerkez will join their club after a recent post on his X (formerly known as Twitter) account.

On Sunday morning, unprompted, Kerkez uploaded a photograph of Raheem Sterling and himself, which was taken during Bournemouth’s 0-0 draw against Chelsea back in September.

The picture was not accompanied by a caption and Blues fans believe Kerkez has hinted that he will be moving to Stamford Bridge this summer.

One Chelsea supporter replied: “See you soon,” while a second added: “Join Chelsea bro.”

In the comments, a Bournemouth fan even said: “No respect for the club. If you don’t want to be here why’d you sign for us in the first place.”

Kerkez only joined Bournemouth in 2023, but the Hungarian could well be on the move this summer and Chelsea fans are now extremely hopeful that he will join their club.
