Chelsea Confirm Signing of Tosin Adarabioyo from Fulham on Free Transfer

Chelsea have bolstered their defensive ranks by signing Tosin Adarabioyo on a free transfer from Fulham on a four-year deal.

Chelsea signed Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo on a free transfer, with the 26-year-old joining the Blues on a four-year deal. Adarabioyo, who joined when his contract expired at the end of the month, made the move to play in Europe after Chelsea qualified for next season’s Europa Conference League.

He had rejected an offer from Fulham in April to become one of their highest-paid players.

“Chelsea is a huge club, and this is a full-circle moment for me. I was born three miles away from Stamford Bridge and made my professional debut there.”

 Adarabioyo said. “I’m very excited and looking forward to helping push the club in the direction we want to go.”

 Chelsea hope Adarabioyo can improve their record in both attacking and defensive set-pieces.

 Also, coach Bernardo Cueva joined them in a £750,000 deal from Brentford to establish a set-piece department.

Adarabioyo’s arrival could accelerate the departure of Chelsea academy defender Trevoh Chalobah, who is available for sale this summer with reported interest from Manchester United.

Thiago Silva, 39, has left Chelsea to rejoin Brazilian club Fluminense.
