RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol: About me and Chelsea...?

RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol has opened the door to joining Chelsea.

The stopper has helped take Croatia into the Last 16 in Qatar and has also been linked with a move to Chelsea, due in part to the presence of compatriot Mateo Kovacic.

When questioned about a possible switch to West London by The Athletic, he said: “About me and Chelsea? I don't know. You know what happened in the last few months. To be honest, I have no idea. My agent is taking care of this and we will see. Right now, I'm happy in Leipzig. I don't know, we will see – you never know.

“You know the stories and these things, but all I can say is that I'm happy in Leipzig and right now I'm going to stay there and perform for them. It's a big club of course and, who knows, maybe one day I will be there. It's really nice to see things like this, especially because there is Kovacic, so you never know. I talk with him.

“Even to be here on this, the biggest event, it's a big thing for me at 20 years old so I'm happy. I have to think about it."
