According to sources, Thomas Tuchel’s top defensive transfer target for Chelsea is Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde.
As the January transfer window approached, much discussion about who Chelsea might sign in to improve their currently injury-plagued and Covid-19-riddled squad.
Chelsea’s top transfer target, according to the Evening Standard, is still Jules Kounde as the team approaches the January transfer window.
Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, and Cesar Azpilicueta are all out of contract at the end of the season, leaving the west London side with a defensive contract crisis.
As a result, Thomas Tuchel is on the lookout for a replacement. Their situation isn’t severe because of Trevoh Chalobah’s reliability, but a new pair of legs to step in for Antonio Rudiger’s likely exit wouldn’t help.
Given Tuchel’s present defense contract dilemma, Kounde, who has been heavily linked with the west London club throughout the summer months, could be precisely what he needs.
