Chelsea midfield target denies talks despite 'special' link

Chelsea target Benjamin Corgnet has denied the Blues have made an approach for him

The midfielder has been linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge in recent weeks.

Corgnet has been impressing with club Dijon, which has lead to speculation that Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is interested in signing him.

Villas-Boas is keen to upgrade an ageing squad at Chelsea and Corgnet has the attributes to fill a central midfield role for the Blues.

The 24-year-old is in his first season in Ligue 1 after helping his side to promotion last season.

He has scored six goals from midfield already this season, but has denied Chelsea have been in touch regarding his services.

It is thought the speculation has arisen due to Corgnet signing a contract with French super-agent Jean-Pierre Bernes.

Despite there being no contact with Chelsea, the player has admitted he has ambitions to make such a move in the future and play for his national side but admits he as a way to go to achieve this.

“I now have a lot of ambition. With Jean-Pierre Bernes, I now can go to the highest possible level. Les Blues are really too far away so far,”

“If I go on this way and Dijon get salvation, the best solution would be for me to leave.

“Chelsea? Everyone is talking about that, considering the special links between Dijon and the Blues.

“But there is nothing so far. Frankly, I don't know what I will do in the future.”
