Chelsea are set for a huge summer ahead. Thomas Tuchel is preparing to make some additions to his squad in the transfer market, having to rebuild after a number of players look set to leave.
Antonio Rudiger has already confirmed his move to Real Madrid as a free agent, while Andreas Christensen is reportedly set to follow him to Spain, but with rivals Barcelona. It leaves a hole in the German coach’s team that needs filling, along with other positions that need strengthening for the next campaign.
With Todd Boehly’s takeover of the Blues confirmed, Tuchel can finally get to work on making moves for his transfer targets for the summer. Several players have been linked, and with that in mind, football.london has taken a look at the latest names to be linked with moves to Stamford Bridge.
