For the club to be in the top gear next season, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel and the club officials making sure that the vacuum experiencing in the ongoing pre-season matches is corrected to avoid repeat of that next season as they sort for good players for transfer deal.
Chelsea eyeing Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana as they begin to consider alternatives to Jules Kounde.
Chelsea have been in the market for multiple defenders this summer, with Kalidou Koulibaly secured so far from Napoli.
After losing Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen on a free transfer, Thomas Tuchel is likely to continue to pursue centre-backs during this transfer window.
One player they have been in discussion with is Sevilla defender Kounde, but according to the Daily Mail, Barcelona are set to win the race to sign the French defender.
As a result, Chelsea have now turned their attention to Leicester defender Fofana, according to Simon Phillips, as seen in the tweet below.

As stated, Fofana has a contract at Leicester until 2027, so the Premier League club are likely to demand a hefty fee to allow him to leave the club.
With Youri Tielemans out of contract next year, there is a good chance the Belgian midfielder leaves this summer, so Brendan Rodgers won’t want to see two of his star players leave without receiving a substantial transfer fee.
Meanwhile, Leicester City didn’t make any transfer, extremely quiet in the transfer window so far, with no signings records for the club yet.
