Chelsea are considering moves for Sevilla center-back Jules Kounde and Juventus star Matthijs de Ligt as the Blues look to renew their defensive options, according to reports.

Defensive duo Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are currently set to go free at the end of this season when their contracts expire, although West Londoners are still negotiating with the pair on new deals.

Chelsea kept a keen interest in Sevilla star Kounde last year, although the Blues did not meet the Spanish club’s £ 67m asking price before the September transfer deadline.

The Dutch defender’s future in Turin is in serious doubt, despite the fact that he has a contract at Juventus until 2024, and his teammate Chiellini has asked De Ligt to remain at Allianz Stadium.

“ He looks like Thor and I hope he can be the successor to the BBC defense (Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini), ” the veteran defender said this week, with Chiellini also calling on De Ligt’s superagent Mino Raiola. , for your future.

“If he had been Italian, it would have been easier to keep him for many years,” he added. I hope Mino can do us a favor and leave him in Turin for a few more years.

“He has giant muscles and legs, but the real difference is in his mentality. De Ligt is 22 years old, but he has the mind of a young man in his 30s who still wants to improve himself every day.

“It gives me the motivation to keep going, boost my training sessions and play even better. Paris and PSG are the only things on my mind. ”

Tuchel’s European champions, however, have managed to start the season brilliantly without a new center-back, with Chelsea currently topping the Premier League table after nine games.

The West Londoners have conceded just three goals since the start of the season, and German coach Tuchel rotates his defensive options regularly.
