June 30th, 2023 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Chelsea have reportedly identified Spanish youngster Gabri Veiga as a replacement for Mason Mount.

Mount is set to join Manchester United after a £60m fee was finally agreed.

Pochettino is set to reap the benefits of reducing the size of his squad already this summer, with the Evening Standard reporting that the ex-Tottenham boss will be granted the ability to sign an attacking-minded midfielder before the start of next season.

It was previously planned that the Argentine would be allowed to sign one defensive midfielder this summer but the mass outgoings has prompted a change of plan.

Veiga, who plays for La Liga side Celta Vigo, has a release clause in his contract of £34.6m.

Top clubs across Europe also hold an interest in the midfielder, though the Blues will be hoping that the guarantee of opportunities in the Premier League will prove decisive in negotiations.
