Chelsea have improved this season since the entrance of German tactician Thomas Tuchel who has transformed the current players into one of the best squads in Europe. However, additions may be required as a precaution in case of injuries and inevitable circumstances.
According to Portuguese newspaper O Jogo with a citation from Sport Witness, Chelsea are interested in the services of Benfica defensive midfielder Julian Weigl. It further reports that the club values their German machine at £30million and that the Blues have already made contact with the player.
The 25-year-old joined the Portuguese giants for £20million from Borussia Dortmund and they are looking forward to getting £10million as a profit from the sale.
Previously Chelsea had set their eyes on West Ham midfielder, Declan Rice, but the amount set by West London rivals is at £80million. That is more than what Thomas Tuchel is looking to spend on one player.
