Chelsea spent over £200 million to add fresh stars into their squad despite the woes of the Corona Virus pandemic. Since then, the Blues have rediscovered their unstoppable form since the sacking of Lampard in January. However, Thomas Tuchel could bolster his squad to challenge for more titles at the club in the summer.

The German has openly told his recruiting team that he wants players with different characteristics. Whilst his performances, he still believes need for an experienced striker and a center back would be vital to restructuring his team for next campaign. A number of stars have been identified to be prime and alternative targets.

Erling Haaland, David Alaba, Niklas Sule, Sergio Aguero marking a list of potential transfers for the premier league club. According to ESPN, Chelsea wants Inter Milan midfielder Nikolo Barela. The 24 year old has been Chelsea's transfer target since 2019 under Sarri. The Italian manager wanted the Italian outfit while he was still at Cagliari. However, Inter Milan hijacked the deal to snap him up.

Barella boasts a brilliant record since joining Milan in 2019. In 80 appearances, he has scored 10 and assisted 18. Arsenal is said to rival Chelsea in signing the Italy international. However, Chelsea is leading in the race to sign the star. Antonio Conte doesn't want to sell Barella to Chelsea though due to a poor relationship with the premier league club.
