Chelsea set to seal £20m deal for West Ham star

Chelsea could complete a deal for West Ham United star Aaron Cresswell if they table a £20million offer, according to reports from the Express.

The 25-year-old has been in fine form this season, with his displays catching the eye of Blues manager Jose Mourinho, as he plots to reinforce his left-back role.

Despite only signing Filipe Luis from Atletico Madrid in the summer, the Brazilian’s inability to break into the first team has led to links with a return to his former side.

Should he decide to leave Stamford Bridge in the upcoming window, Mourinho is ready to replace him with Cresswell to give first-choice Cesar Azpilicueta some friendly competition.

The Hammers don’t want to see the defender leave, but should the Premier League leaders table a £20million offer, it would be hard for them to turn down the move.

He has been a constant performer under manager Sam Allardyce, starting all of his 33 league matches this season, scoring two goals and providing two assists.
