Tuchel urged Chelsea to finalise deal for French star, The 5 attackers Chelsea are eyeing



Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has urged the club’s hierarchy to finalise the signing of Sevilla defender Jules Kounde in the summer transfer window.

The Frenchman was the Blues prime central defensive goal last summer, however a deal didn’t materialise earlier than the deadline.

Sevilla needed €80 million buy-out clause to be paid in full, however they are ready for a compromise this time round.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the La Liga outfit are prepared to just accept a decreased payment of €65m to sanction Kounde’s exit.

He added that Tuchel is raring to sign the former Bordeaux graduate, and has already instructed Chelsea to push by a summer season switch.

The Blues appear to be in pole place to sign Kounde with long-term admirers Barcelona having monetary points in the mean time.

The La Liga giants cannot afford to satisfy the worth tag till they recoup funds from participant gross sales. A brand new centre-back doesn’t seem a precedence.

The 5 players that Chelsea are considering for the attack

Chelsea has come out of the well of sanctions for the ownership of Roman Abramovich’s, which has changed hands to have Todd Boehly as the new owner. The American has injected 118 million euros into the London team and will allow Thomas Tuchel’s team to make several additions for next season.

The departure of Antonio Rüdiger and the more than likely ones of Azpilicueta and Christensen put Chelsea’s defense at serious risk, which is why several names are being considered to reinforce the defense. However, those from Stamford Bridge are also thinking of reinforcing the offensive plot, taking into account that both Lukaku and Werner could leave the British team. The London entity, as reported ‘The Telegraph’ has thought of several important names that he is considering to reinforce the attack.

The five footballers that Chelsea is considering for the attack;

1. Raheem Sterling: The end of the Manchester City has been the subject of speculation for many months about his possible departure from the citizen team. The English attacker wants a greater role to feel important as a footballer again and there are several teams that want him. Arsenal were postulated as favourites, but Chelsea have interfered and could be the new favorite to close the signing of him.

2. Robert Lewandowski: Bayern Munich has tried to retain Lewandowski, but the Pole is not happy with the Bavarians and is looking to leave this summer. Unless the situation is resolved, his departure is imminent and everything indicates that FC Barcelona will be the one to take over his services. However, Chelsea has been going strong and with greater economic power than Barça, so it could get ahead of the Catalans.

3. Christopher Nkunku: RB Leipzig is not willing to sell his main star just like that, but Nkunku has already made it clear that he will not close doors and his departure is possible. The French midfielder was one of the wishes of Paris Saint-Germain, but the arrival of Luis Campos, with a very clear project, has distanced him from the Parisians and Chelsea could sneak into the bid as one of the favorites to reach an agreement .

4. Ousmane Dembele: Dembélé has been the biggest headache for months FC Barcelona, whose interest was to renew the young French footballer, since he fit into Xavi’s plans and had his confidence. In spite of everything, both parties seem distant in terms of any type of agreement and Dembélé is one of the calls to leave at the moment. Barring a radical turnaround, Chelsea could seize the opportunity to gain one of the most unpredictable wingers both on and off the pitch.

5. Gabriel Jesus: Finally, the name of Gabriel Jesús is being considered because, according to various reports, it seems that the Brazilian has been offered to the London team. The City striker rang with great force at Arsenal and was one of Mikel Arteta’s great wishes, but it seems that the situation has changed and that, finally, Chelsea could be the lucky one to close the signing of him.
