Marina Granovskaia could earn Thomas Tuchel a Chelsea transfer windfall as £50m move lined up

Marina Granovskaia could be set to secure Chelsea a considerable cash injection this summer with former Blue Tariq Lamptey interesting Tottenham Hotspur.

The former Chelsea right-back progressed through the club’s youth system but eventually departed last January for Brighton and Hove Albion.

The deal was worth a reported £3m as his contract entered its final few months at the club.

Whilst the Blues were loathed to let one of their promising youngsters go for such a low fee having made three appearances for the first teamz, his path was blocked considerably by Reece James and Cesar Azpilicueta so he was let go.

The summer window is officially open and now the Blues can look to build on European glory and bolster the squad to push for Premier League supremacy.
