Josko Gvardiol has said he wants to follow Christopher Nkunku to Chelsea with the Frenchman set to join the Blues in the summer.
The French attacker is set to join the Blues in the summer after Chelsea and Leipzig agreed a deal to sign the player back in December, as the club continue to spend big to challenge for the major honours.
Now, fans are starting to believe that Croatian defender Josko Gvardiol could follow his teammate to London after making his admission to The Times.
“I have never seen before a player like Christoph, he is unbelievable.
“Every time I talk with someone about him I always say wherever he goes I want to go with him.”

Chelsea were indeed close to signing Gvardiol last summer but the move fell through and the 21-year old opened up on what happened.
“I was really confused because one month before the window starts I was upstairs with the sporting director and he says, ‘Yeah Josko, we are not going to sell you, we need you, we believe in you.
“It was like this until the last two days, then my agent called me and said that Chelsea is extremely interested and, of course, you definitely think about a serious offer from a huge club like Chelsea.

“In the end, I really struggled with that decision but we didn’t make an agreement. It is what it is.”
Could we be seeing Gvardiol wearing blue come next summer? Only time will tell.
