Chelsea 'battling Wolverhampton Wanderers for Kosovan winger Edon Zhegrova'

Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly both interested in signing 21-year-old Kosovan winger Edon Zhegrova, who is currently on loan at Basel from Genk.

Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly both interested in signing Kosovan winger Edon Zhegrova.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Basel from Genk and has scored two goals and created four more in 19 appearances across all competitions this season.

Basel have an option to buy Zhegrova for £2.9m when his loan expires this summer, but the Swiss outfit have already confirmed that they will not trigger that clause due to the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

The Daily Star reports that there is interest from the Premier League, though, with Chelsea and Wolves both considering a move for the winger.

Genk would likely demand a higher fee to sell to the Premier League, but Wolves were tracking him before the shutdown and view him as a potentially cheap option.

Zhegrova, who can play on either wing, has made 17 international appearances for Kosovo, scoring two goals.
