Bayern, Chelsea eye Bassey summer move

Super Eagles defender Calvin Bassey has been mentioned as a potential transfer interest at Bayern Munich and Chelsea after a solid season in Scotland, according to Fichajes.

The 22-year-old defender was a rock for the Gers this season and ended it on a high after winning the man-of-the-match award against Hearts in the Scottish Cup final and also making the Europa League team of the season.

It has been an impressive two years in Scotland for Bassey and his performance seems to have caught the eye in Munich and Cobham

With Antonio Rudiger headed for a summer exit and Nicklas Süle also bound to leave Bayern this season, both teams are looking for a young alternative to fill in their defensive roles.

Bassey’s development is in its early stage in Glasgow and he may not fancy a move at the moment. He has also been linked with a transfer to Aston Villa where he may be rejoining his former coach and the man who gave him his professional bow, Steven Gerrard.

He is one of the most talked-about young defenders in Europe at the moment, especially on the back of excellent performance in the final of the Europa League against Eintracht Frankfurt.
