Chelsea are yet to sign their first player in the summer transfer window but they have already allowed Antonio Rudiger to join Real Madrid this summer. However, many Chelsea players could still leave this summer, and Tomas Tuchel need players to strengthen their squad this summer.
Chelsea were linked to attacking players like Ousmane Dembele and Raheem Sterling. Manchester city are willing to allow either Raheem Sterling or Gabriel Jesus to leave this summer. Chelsea are interested in acquiring Raheem Sterling but they are yet to make direct contact with the club.
Ousmane Dembele is yet to extend his contract with Barcelona, but if the Spanish giants are unable to resolve their financial situation, Chelsea might swoop in and acquire his services. Chelsea have already spotted Antonio Rudiger’s replacement and they want to sign Jules Kounde. But they have one red flag in pursuing Kounde’s signature as the centre-back is currently injured and the blues might not want to proceed talks until he recovers from injury.
