Chelsea Favorites To Sign Burkinabe Defender Edmond Tapsoba

Chelsea have reportedly established a contact with Bayer Leverkusen defender Edmond Tapsoba, who is also a summer target for Arsenal.

According to a report by Burkina Faso outlet Sport Drome, the race to sign Edmond Tapsoba is heating up, with Chelsea contacting the Burkinabe defender over a possible move in the summer transfer window.

The Bayer Keverkusen contract rebel, who is valued at around €60 million, is also being tailed by Arsenal.

Tapsoba has enjoyed a great stint with Bayer Leverkusen since arriving from Vitoria Guimaraes in the summer of 2020. In this period, the 22-year-old has established himself as one of the best defenders in Europe while also going on to qualify Burkina Faso to 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

The in-demand defender was Leverkusen’s second highest rated player this season with a rating of 6.96 and was named him man of the match on two occasions.

He was often deployed as a left-sided central defender despite being right-footed and is seen as one of the most promising prospects in Europe.

Tapsoba made his Burkina Faso debut at just 17 years, six months and 22 days old in a friendly against Uzbekistan on 24 August 2016.
