Chelsea blow as Gvardiol’s agent insists defender has not agreed transfer and multiple ‘top clubs’ are interested

JOSKO GVARDIOL is in no hurry to leave RB Leipzig, his agent has confirmed.

The highly-rated defender is being coveted by top clubs all over Europe, with Chelsea believed to be leading the race.

Josko Gvardiol has impressed for Croatia at the World Cup

A deal was previously claimed to be close, but Gvardiol’s representatives have denied already arranging a transfer.

They told Sky Germany: “We are not in a hurry for a transfer, there are no pre-agreements with any club.

“Top clubs are informed about him but Josko has a long-term contract in Leipzig and he’s happy there.”

Gvardiol, 20, is currently at the World Cup in Qatar with Croatia.

The centre-back has impressed with his mature performances alongside stalwart Dejan Lovren.

He will next be in action on Friday, when Croatia take on Brazil in the quarter-finals.

In addition to Chelsea, Gvardiol has also been linked with Barcelona, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Last year he revealed that his dream move would be to Anfield, telling 24hr Sata: “From a young age, I watched Liverpool games with my dad and I grew up with just them.


“When I took football more seriously, I started following them, and I definitely want the Premier League and Liverpool move one day.”

On his idols, he then added: “As a child, I adored Messi. I couldn’t believe what he was doing on the ball.

“Later, when I found myself in the position of stopper, it was Ramos and Van Dijk.”

Chelsea are believed to have already wrapped up a deal for Gvardiol’s RB Leipzig team-mate Christopher Nkunku.

The Blues are expected to pay the Frenchman’s £53million release clause.
