Do you want to know about the Chelsea Latest transfer news? Chelsea are currently serving a transfer ban but with that coming to a close, they will look to sign players. So who are the targets? Find it out on Chelsea Latest transfer news!
Here are the top players Chelsea are targeting in the defensive department –
Chelsea are reportedly in the market for a centre-half. They extended Thiago Silva’s contract but are still looking for additional quality.
The current bunch has performed decently but we all can agree that they are not the best. Kounde has impressed in Spain with Sevilla. The French defender reportedly has a release clause of €80 million.
“Regarding my future, it is certain that I will perhaps have to change clubs this summer, but nothing has been finalised yet, I have not decided anything,” Kounde said recently. “My goal is to play in a big club to try to always progress and to win trophies. I might have to move, but that’s not relevant today.”
Chelsea are thought to be targeting Bayern Munich’s Niklas Sule. He is 25 years old and is coming off another season of inconsistent displays. The German defender featured in 33 games under Hansi Flick after suffering an ACL tear. He only has one more year left on his contract and there have been no talks of an extension.
To prevent a David Alaba situation, Bayern could be propelled into selling Sule on ahead of the 2021/22 season.
Here are the top midfielders Chelsea are targeting –
The talented midfielder from Lazio has been subjected to transfer speculation for over two seasons now. He is highly valued not just in Italy but all over Europe. It is obvious that Lazio will not be able to hold on to him much longer should he continue to play at the highest level. Hence, Chelsea might consider bringing in another anchor man to shore up their depth in deep midfield.
Weigl has really impressed since leaving Borussia Dortmund for Benfica two seasons back. The German midfielder is a skilled passer of the ball and can also break up opposition play. He might have fallen off his perch as the next wonderkid but he still has bags of talent under his belt.
Weigl could be the perfect partner to N’Golo Kante in a midfield partnership.
Here the top forwards Chelsea could sign in 2021 –
Tottenham Hotspur is no longer aligned with Harry Kane’s ambitions as a footballer. Even after spending nearly two decades at the club, Kane has not won a single piece of silverware.
At 27, he is in the prime of his career, recording the highest number of goals and assists in the Premier League last term. The frustration in him has clearly reached it’s tipping point based on his recent interviews. Chelsea have the opportunity to present Spurs with a convincing offer and get one of the country’s best strikers to lead their attack.
Borussia Dortmund are contracted to Erling Haaland until June 2023. They currently value him at over £100m but are not looking to sell.
The Norwegian goalscorer is one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe right now. At just 20, he is matching up to the scoring tallies of top forwards. He seems to be the perfect striker to launch this Chelsea side into a title challenge.
Chelsea have previously drawn ties to Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho but nothing ever materialised. It was Manchester United who were originally set to land the winger and are still the favourites.
But an interesting situation is arising at BVB. With just two more years left on his contract, Chelsea could swoop in with an attractive offer for Sancho.
