Pachuca’s Vice-President, Andres Fassi has claimed that Chelsea will be opening talks imminently for the transfer of 21-year-old winger, Jürgen Damm. The English Premier League side could be arriving as early as tomorrow to discuss the deal.
Damm is a pacy and skillful wide player coming off the back of a successful season with Pachuca, as they finished runners-up in the Clausura. In recent years, Chelsea are scoured the globe picking up top young players and Damm it appears could be the latest addition.
Fassi reported to Medio Tiempo, “there is interest but we have to see how much they are interested. In principle we have a sporting plan for Jurgen and we hope he stays, but if something comes up from abroad, we have to take it into account and if it’s serious, we have to respond, we will have news in the next 48 hours.”
“Chelsea are the club interested, but we have to see how much they are interested, we can’t go ahead of ourselves, we have to wait and see. When it comes to us, it’s a matter of sporting project. We want him to stay and we will see how much Chelsea are interested.
“There is a belief they arrive in Mexico on Thursday to talk with us.“
Damm nearly moved to England in 2013 after having a trial with Manchester United while he was playing for Estudiantes Tecos but with United only willing to pay £500,000 at the time a deal could not be struck. This took Damm to Pachuca and now Chelsea may profit. With his dual Mexican/German nationality there will be no issues with getting a visa.
