Chelsea offer player plus cash to sign Thomas Tuchel’s star target

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel is ready to cash out Champions League winner Kurt Zouma for 25-year-old AS Roma superstar Gianluca Mancini, according to a report from Italy.

The France international featured 36 times for the Blues across all competitions, scoring five times in the Premier League but the defender made one appearance once in the knockout stages of the Champions League under the German tactician.Zouma is not favoured by Tuchel, who, in turn, is looking for more technically astute centre-backs as Chelsea have already been linked with multiple centre-backs this summer, including VfL Wolfsburg’s rising star Maxence Lacroix.

According to Il Romanista claim that Chelsea will be keen on bringing Mancini to Stamford Bridge despite the Italian defender still having three years remaining on his current contract.The West London outfit director Marina Granovskaia is hoping to land the Roma defender with a cash deal plus Zouma swap.

Mancini has become an ever-present figure of the Giallorossi backline, alongside the likes of Roger Ibanez and Leonardo Spinazzola, who was a target for Real Madrid prior to his unfortunate injury in the quarter-final against Belgium.
