Chelsea FC transfer news: Marseille defender Doria delighted to be linked with move to Stamford Bridge
Reported Chelsea target Doria has revealed he is ‘dreaming’ of a move to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues worked tirelessly to land a new central defender in the summer and eventually completed a deal to re-sign former player David Luiz from Paris Saint-Germain.
However, reports in France have since linked Chelsea boss Antonio Conte with a move for Marseille centre-back Doria.
The 21-year-old Brazilian has impressed during his eight Ligue 1 appearances for Marseille so far this term and is rated highly by the club.
But he says that a move to west London could be too good to turn down.
When asked about the rumour, he told Canal +: “Yes, I heard about it through social media. But I think that I need to continue to do my work.
“We have played 8 games, I need to continue… I don’t know [if it is true]. I found out about it like you did.
“But that should not stop one from dreaming, they are one of biggest clubs in Europe. I am happy about these rumours, but what is most important is to continue playing well.”
