The Athletic reports that Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has great admiration for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice and also Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher.
As the summer transfer window approaches, a defender and a midfielder is definitely a must-have in Tuchel’s shopping list. Conor Gallagher is due to return to Chelsea over the summer and with the kind of season he’s had that would be almost certain
Declan Rice is one of the most sought-after players among English clubs but he is likely to be priced out for most.
While these two might be Tuchel’s pick of the bunch it is reported that the Chelsea scouting team has its eyes on Aurélien Tchouaméni of Monaco who would cost cheaper than Rice.
With every indication that Chelsea midfield general N’Golo Kante could be coming to decline, it is of high importance that the club duly invest in a perfect replacement this summer. As a result, transfers for Declan Rice and Tchouameni are very likely.
