In the past week Chelsea has managed to lose two crucial targets for the summer to PSG. Sergio Ramos and Achraf Hakimi are set to join the Ligue 1 side after the club reached personal agreement with the individuals. Meanwhile Chelsea was also in contention to sign the two players during this summer in order to boost the defense for next season.
Chelsea who won their second Champions League title since 2012 were among the top clubs who were targeting both Hakimi and Ramos. Despite having contacted the players, the club didn't reach a conclusive agreement to sign the players. Among other top players targeted by the club include Kounde and Erling Haaland.
Haaland is currently one of the main targets for Tuchel's side after losing the two players to Paris Saints Germain. PSG is set to officially announce the signing of the duo anytime soon with the deals already tabled. On the other hand Chelsea are still left with many other options to reinforce their defense ahead of next season. Despite Haaland's release fee being too high, Chelsea are optimistic of signing the player after the club owner, Roman Abramovich assured the club of financial support.
