Chelsea receive major boost in pursuit of Serie A star

9 July 2022 0 By Total Football News

Chelsea have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of defensive reinforcements, according to reports.

The Blues are in desperate need of some fresh legs at centre-back now Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen have departed for Spain.

And a whole host of names have already been tipped for a Stamford Bridge switch, including Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, Matthijs de Ligt of Juventus and former Chelsea star, Nathan Ake.

Elsewhere, Fabrizio Romano reported at the end of June that Napoli stopper Kalidou Koulibaly is also on the list of Chelsea targets, with it added that there have been conversations regarding the Senegalese star:

Now, a fresh update on Chelsea’s pursuit of the stopper has emerged.

According to Corriere Dello Sport, Chelsea are preparing a plan to bring the defender to Stamford Bridge.

And whilst the west Londoners were set to face competition from Juventus, the report has claimed that the 62-time capped international is not interested in a move to the Italian club, meaning Chelsea could have a free run to sign the 31-year-old.

No potential transfer fee is mentioned in the report.
