Talks held: Chelsea working on signing 22-year-old who watched them get thrashed by Arsenal

Chelsea are reportedly in talks over a potential transfer deal for Feyenoord left-back Quilindschy Hartman.

The talented 22-year-old looks like he could be a fine addition to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad, with the left-back position proving something of a problem area for the Blues in recent times.

Ben Chilwell has not exactly been the most consistent performer in the world, while he’s also struggled with injuries, and Marc Cucurella hasn’t really lived up to expectations at all since his big-money move from Brighton last season.

Hartman could be a useful signing for Chelsea, and it seems some negotiations have got underway, with the Netherlands international and his entourage recently making the trip to watch the west London giants get thrashed 5-0 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, according to 1908.

Interestingly, the Hartman links also come as CFC look increasingly likely to offload Ian Maatsen this summer, with the Dutchman impressing since leaving for a loan move to Borussia Dortmund back in January.

One imagines Chelsea will be happy to have put Maatsen in the shop window, but would someone like Hartman really be an upgrade on a player who has experience of playing in England, as well as some appearances in the Champions League with Dortmund this season?

Chelsea have been a bit chaotic with a lot of chopping and changing of managers and players since Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali took over the club, and it might be wise to slow down a bit this summer and bed in talents like Maatsen who are already on their books.

Still, there’s also no doubt that Hartman looks a good prospect so is sure to be someone who earns a himself big move, perhaps to one of Chelsea’s Premier League rivals, sooner rather than later.
