Chelsea Willing to Re-sign 24yr Old Serie A Defender as Rudiger's Successor

Chelsea are hoping to bolister their squad in the incoming summer transfer window despite sanctions placed on the club by UK government.

The Blues are preparing to be without Antonio Rudiger who is heading to join Real Madrid after reaching verbal agreement with the Spanish club and Andreas Christensen who's tipped to join arch rivals Barcelona in summer.

As a result, Thomas Tuchel is aware that his side will need replacements therefore plans to strengthen his backline knowing that Thiago Silva and Azpilicueta will only be senior defenders at Stamford Bridge.

However according to Fichajes (, Chelsea are considering to resign the England's international Fikayo Tomori in an attempt to replace Rudiger.

The 24 year old made a permanent move to AC Milan in 2021 for £28m after a six month loan spell having impressed in Serie A and apparently, his side leading the table.

It's claimed that Chelsea board has been impressed as well by his transformation and they are willing to break the bank and have him at Stamford Bridge despite failing to establish himself earlier under Thomas Tuchel.

Ideally, Chelsea have been linked with a number of key defenders like Jules Kounde and Pau Torres and therefore Fikayo Tomori shouldn't be signed.

Lastly, what's your take on this?
