Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel is still hoping to bolister his entire squad by signing a centreback, a defensive midfielder and a striker in an attempt to win some major silverwares this season despite a fair start of the campaign.
Having been linked with several top targets like Wesley Fofana and Gordon, the Germany tactician is allegedly close to landing his long term target who’s arguably a target for close EPL rivals as well.
According to the Sun Football,
Chelsea are allegedly willing to wait till the deadline day for summer transfer to complete Barca’s ace Frankie De Jong’s move.
De Is being viewed as a perfect target to bolister Tuchel’s unsettled midfield department following the uncertainty of Jorginho’s future at Stamford Bridge coupled with Ngolo Kante’s injury crisis.
Ideally, De Jong is highly rated player and a dream Signing for every club and therefore might be the missing puzzle in Tuchel’s pack of midfielders.
Meanwhile, Wesley Fofana has urged Leicester to let him leave this summer ahead of potential switch to Stamford Bridge.
