By replacing Antonio Rudiger and Romelu Lukaku, as well as acquiring Raheem Sterling and Kolidou Koulibaly in an effort to reorganize his team, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is certainly making some surprising changes to his roster.
The Stamford Bridge powerhouses are still heavily linked with a number of players, including Nathan Ake of City and Jules Kounde of Sevilla, as well as Pau Torres of Villarreal. However, no negotiations have yet been started.
Todd Boehly, who has rearranged his whole backstaff, is reportedly eager on turning the team into real title challengers for the upcoming season.
Zark Sturge, a great player for Brighton, reportedly turned down a contract extension offer from his club, and is now expected to join Chelsea on a free transfer, according to The Sun Football.
The 18-year-old prodigy, who has experience playing for England’s U18 team, is seen as the ideal candidate to flourish and compete for a starting berth in Tuchel’s squad in the future.
For the London-based heavyweights who are renowned for developing Cobham academy talent, this appears to be a wise investment.
Jules Kounde, meanwhile, has firmly decided to join Chelsea despite the sides’ differing transfer fees.
