Julian Weigl is a German professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for Benfica and the Germany national football team.
Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel wants to sign Benfica midfielder Julian Weigl this summer. Chelsea have made contact over his availability with his representatives and Tuchel consideres him as his crucial for the summer.
Chelsea have reportedly already held talks with Weigl’s representatives and his club, though discussions remain at a preliminary stage.
His current contract runs through 2024, and while Benfica do want to hold on to him, they could decide to sell him should Chelsea offer them enough money to cushion the financial impact of the pandemic on their books.
25-year-old has a lot of experience of working under Tuchel and should settle in very quickly in the number position.
Declan Rice is an English professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder or centre-back for Premier League club West Ham United and the England national team. Born in England, Rice is of English and Irish descent.
Thomas Tuchel has revived Chelsea’s interest in re-signing Declan Rice, but a move for the West Ham United midfielder may rest on the German's side securing Champions League.
Thomas Tuchel has put him forward as a potential target this summer, exactly as Frank Lampard had done last summer.
