Chelsea and their future

According to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport, it appears that Chelsea’s pursuit of striking reinforcements goes beyond just Victor Osimhen.

The deal is to include Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Trevor Chalobah, and Christian Pulisic as part of the package. With Juventus showing interest in acquiring all three players.
