Chelsea will be very busy this summer with plenty of reinforcements to beat uncertainty throughout the first-team squad. Todd Boehly in his early days at Stamford Bridge will be involved in some serious transfer planning. The consortium has been closely monitoring the movement of several high-profile names.
Real Madrid through their social media have announced the signing of Antonio Rudiger. Andreas Christensen is next in the line who will join Xavi’s Barcelona. Marcos Alonso, Pulisic, Werner, and Ziyech have all been linked with moves away from Stamford bridge.
It’ll be nothing less than a mystery revelation to witness Chelsea’s first-team squad during the pre-season.
Chelsea & Christopher Nkunku
Christopher Nkunku remains a top target for Chelsea and he may have dropped some hints on his future this summer.
In a press conference he was asked whether he will stay with RB Leipzig this summer, to which he replied:
Leipzig is trying to do everything in hand to sign a new deal with the forward ahead of the transfer window. Keen interest from Chelsea to sign the French international is making the progress of Leipzig difficult.
Nkunku scored 35 goals in 51 appearances last season for the Bundesliga side and this has earned him a call-up from Deschamps for the French national team.
Chelsea’s brutal decision for Jorginho
Jorginho is one of the many stars from Chelsea who’re set to leave this summer and Chelsea are very likely to approve his sale. Spanish clubs are closely monitoring the movement of the euro champion but Serie A seems a more realistic option for the Italian international.
Chelsea under the new ownership of Todd Boehly is likely to go for a rebuild. With players leaving Chelsea will be out of squad depth and the Tuchel side may be out of options if some reinforcements aren’t brought in.
Jorginho’s contract will expire by 2023 and this transfer window may attract a good fee for him. For Chelsea, it should be easy to get buyers for the French international with the amount of interest speculating around him.
Max Allegri will try to land the superstar but Maurizio Sarri will definitely have the edge here. Sarri managed Jorginho at Napoli and persuaded him to Chelsea. Lazio’s boss would be keen to have him on the team. Lazio is currently 5th and Jorginho’s arrival can help them to book a European game time next season.
