Malang Sarr departs Chelsea for Porto/Jesse Lingard also tipped for Dragao switch

Porto have this evening announced the arrival of Malang Sarr, with another Premier League player potentially set to follow the Chelsea youngster to Portugal.

Blues departure

French stopper Sarr only made the move to Chelsea this past summer as a free agent, following the expiration of his contract with Nice.

The widespread assumption, though, was always that the 21-year-old would be swiftly farmed out on loan, to develop further ahead of a return to Stamford Bridge down the line.

And, as confirmed a short time ago, this is precisely what has come to pass.

Taking to social media this evening, Porto confirmed that Sarr has joined the club on loan for the campaign ahead:

Speaking on the back of his Dragao switch being made official, meanwhile, Sarr explained:

‘FC Porto is a very big club with a history that, for me, is very important. I know this story, it’s a proud club and that’s what I hope to find.’

Lingard next up?

As outlined above, though, Sarr may not be the only Premier League star to link up with Porto before the close of the Portuguese transfer market on October 25th.

The other player tipped to make the move to the Primeira Liga? Jesse Lingard.

As per a report from Rob Dawson of ESPN, Porto are keen on the out-of-favour Manchester United midfielder.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. are expected to be open to a deal, which would also likely come in the form of a loan:
