Chelsea lead race for £13m Serie A star as Thomas Tuchel hands Todd Boehly transfer wishlist

Chelsea could be one of the Premier League's busiest clubs this summer with plenty of uncertainty throughout the first-team squad. Todd Boehly's early days are likely to be dominated by transfer planning with a number of high-profile names reportedly targeted already.

The American-led consortium, who agreed a £4.25billion deal to buy the west London club on Monday, are expected to 'push for A-list signings' to mark a new era at Stamford Bridge, according to the MailOnline.

And, with the new ownership group eager to bolster the Blues' armoury, The Telegraph indicate that, after player sales are taken into account, Thomas Tuchel is set to have £200million at his disposal to strengthen his side.

The departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen have already been confirmed by the Chelsea boss, but they may not be the last to leave.

Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech have all been linked with moves away from Chelsea , and it remains to be seen whether the first-team will consist of whom once the transfer window closes.

Nevertheless, it is a challenge those concerned will have to be up for. With that in mind, football.london has taken a look at the latest names to be linked with moves to Stamford Bridge.

Dembele hint

Chelsea have been handed a major boost in their pursuit to sign Ousmane Demeble in the upcoming transfer window. The 25-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this season, as Thomas Tuchel plots a rebuild this summer.

It's believed that Dembele decided to delay the decision regarding his future until the Chelsea takeover was completed, the Press Association claim - it must be said that his decision to do so drops a huge hint.

The Blues boss is known to be a big admirer of the Frenchman, having briefly worked with the forward at Borussia Dortmund. The duo enjoyed their time together in the Bundesliga, with Tuchel's man-management steering Dembele towards a £135.5million move to Barcelona.

Tuchel shortlist


According to The Guardian, Raheem Sterling, Christopher Nkunku, Jonathan David, Darwin Nunez and Ousmane Dembele have been added to Chelsea's summer wishlist of attacking talent. The likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Jules Kounde and Josko Gvardiol have also been heavily linked with a move to west London.

It seems as if arming his side with a wealth of attacking artillery is Tuchel's priority. Speaking to football.london earlier this month, the Blues boss addressed Chelsea's inability to over-perform. He said:

"Is it necessary to bring more offensive players around the box to create more distractions, to create more space for each other? We will ask that question. Can we do better in the structure? Can we push the players more? Did we rotate too much? Let's see.

"There are a lot of options. The numbers we produce from our offensive players don't allow us to over-perform, and we need over-performance if we want to be nearer to the top two teams. I am not pointing fingers, I am not blaming anybody, but we need over-performance from everybody. It's not over-performance if we have only single figures in scoring and assisting."


Chelsea lead race for Rabiot

The west Londoners have been linked with a move for Adrien Rabiot, according to reports. Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport claim that Chelsea are leading the race to sign the Juventus midfielder this summer.

The report adds that the 27-year-old, who sees his contract with the Turin-based side expire next summer, could be available for as little as €15 million (£12.8m). Newcastle have also been credited with an interest in Rabiot, but his agent is leaving the door open to a move to Paris Saint- Germain.
