Chelsea are looking forward to making important signings this summer to boost Tuchel’s squad. Especially after losing already fixtures against Leeds United and Southampton in the Premier League campaign.
Having had Injuries to Kante and Kovacic made a return to the team recently and still fighting for match fitness. The Chelsea side have Conor Gallagher who hasn’t been at the club in last season as he was on loan to Crystal Palace. Which makes it difficult for the latter to have much needed combination with Jorginho and Kovacic in midfield.
The blues are looking for a defensive midfielder and they have in a late move decided to try sign Ajax player. As per Daily Mail the West London side have submitted £43m bid for Edson Alvarez.
Unfortunately for the Londoners with deadline day being today and for the Dutch club it will be on 11pm UK time, Wednesday. It’s a huge blow to the Tuchel’s side as the Dutch side aren’t willing to let the player exit this summer.
This is due to lack of enough time to seek his replacement and it’s a huge blow to Chelsea.
Who may as well need to seek the other targets as quickly as possible. Before today’s midnight deadline time as per UK time according to Sunsport.
