Barcelona targeted two players associated with Chelsea.
Barcelona are going to give Chelsea a double blow in the summer transfer window. Catalan giants target two players associated with Chelsea.
The first player is Andreas Christensen, who is out of contract with the Premier League club in the summer. The second target is Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, a player who has been heavily linked with the Blues for a move next summer.
Chelsea’s potential saving grace in this situation is that they are not the only players The Blaugrana are after in defence.
As per the reports of Spanish outlet Sport, Juventus star Matthijs de Ligt is also a target for them in central defence, while they also want to bring in Jose Gaya as competition at left-back for Jordi Alba.
The report also adds that the La Liga giants are ready to let go of three of their defenders in order to create the space necessary for these signings. Barcelona are planning to sell Clement Lenglet, Oscar Mingueza and Samuel Umititi.
It’s going to be a big blow as Chelsea is already losing Rudiger to Real Madrid. Cesar Azpiliceuta has also hinted a move that means the Blues gonna lose its veteran star.
The defence would be a big target to boost for Chelsea. Blues will have a tough assignment this season. They would look to reduce their margin in Premier League and also eye silverware as they are in the final of the EFL Cup.
