Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is still hoping to strengthen his squad ahead of next campaign with Todd Boehly ready to splash huge amount on two center-backs and a lethal striker literally after Romelu Lukaku’s exit.
It’s arguably understood that the Stamford Bridge heavyweights are in need of defenders following the mass exodus of their key players like Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen with Marcos Alonso, and Cesar Azpilicueta as well as considering leaving the premier league for La Liga amidst Barcelona’s links.
It’s quite disappointing how Chelsea’s board is handling the transfer saga, especially Jules Kounde’s deal.
According to the Football London, Chelsea’s target and Juventus ace Matthijs De Ligt has handed a transfer request upon heading to Chelsea with Tuchel readying a €70m in an attempt to sign him.
De Ligt, 22 is highly regarded as a perfect target to replace the commanding Germany skipper Antonio Rudiger and therefore a move is likely as things stand.
Meanwhile, Tuchel wants to add Richardson to his squad in an attempt to sharpen his attacking options.
