In this article, we will be exposing on how Chelsea could spend £200 million on five new signings this summer.
1. Jules Kounde – £60 million
Chelsea have re-entered negotiation to bring Jules Kounde to Stamford Bridge this summer, after failing to finalize the transfer to sign the player last summer.
Jules Kounde is considered to be one of the best young center back defender in the La Liga, and Sevilla are reported to be demanding for a transfer fee of about £60 million for the 23 years old.

Chelsea have been strongly linked with RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol this summer, since the announcement that Antonio Rudiger would be leaving the club.
Josko Gvardiol is regarded as one of the best young talented defender in Europe, and he is equally left footed, which makes him a perfect replacement to fill the left center back position at Chelsea, forming a strong defensive partnership with Jules Kounde and Thiago Silva in a three man defense.
Leipzig signed Josko Gvardiol from Dynamo Zagreb for a transfer fee believed to be €16 million, they would be looking to make good profits from his sale, by demanding £35 million for his transfer this summer.

The 22 years old could be available for transfer this summer, as Benfica has reportedly slammed a £70 million price tag on the player.
Chelsea are believed to be among the clubs that are keen on signing Darwin Nunez this summer, and could go all out to spend £70 million on him.
4. Ibrahim Sangare – £35 million
Thomas Tuchel is hoping to get a natural defensive midfieder in this summer transfer window, and PSV midfieder Ibrahim Sangare has been identified as the proper alternative for Declan Rice.
Ibrahim Sangare has been watched by the Chelsea scouts, and they believe his excellent ball winning skills and tackles could make him a great signing for Chelsea this summer.
