Chelsea have identified three main transfer priorities for the summer as the Blues board is keen on backing Thomas Tuchel in the transfer market.
It was reported that Thomas Tuchel’s attitude of not pushing too hard for transfers in the January window has impressed Chelsea chiefs.
Tuchel has done tremendous work at Stamford Bridge and it’s only logical that the club will now back him in the transfer market as he could easily have made more of a fuss about strengthening the squad in January when the squad was struggling with injuries and players out with Covid.
According to a report from the Telegraph, Declan Rice, Jules Kounde and Aurelien Tchouameni are now set to be the club’s transfer targets for the summer.
Kounde is one of the finest young defenders in the game currently and could be an important addition to the Blues squad if Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen all end up leaving when their contracts expire in the summer.
Meanwhile, Tchouameni is another outstanding young talent, and the Monaco midfielder could be a decent alternative to Rice, who may well be too expensive.
