New mood at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea will be welcoming new players during the summer transfer window even as some key players will be leaving the club.
The Blues manager, Thomas Tuchel will be able to bolster his squad after Todd Boehly’s takeover of the club, with Monaco star Aurelien Tchouameni among the names on their radar
Chelsea are set to be free to sign and sell players after the takeover of the club by Todd Boehly’s consortium – and Monaco centre back Aurelien Tchouameni is at the top of their shopping list.
Real Madrid have long been favourites to land the 22 year old, according to Sport, but now according to Marca, Chelsea are ready to make an approach. The Spanish paper though also say that Liverpool will be contenders.
Monaco are not expected to be able to resist offers for Tchouameni – but the French club are expected to want around £65 million for the centre back.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel wants at least one top class centre back to add to his squad, with both Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen on their way out of the club this summer – Rudiger to real Madrid and Christensen to Barcelona.
