Top European clubs are vying for their ideal targets during the summer transfer window in an effort to bolster their rosters for the upcoming season, but Chelsea is doing the exact opposite.
The Stamford Bridge giants have yet to sign a player despite having talks with targets, despite their shaky defense and ineffective attacking options.
It should be recalled that Tuchel's top goal has always been to buy at least two center backs and an offensive player, given the exits of Romelu Lukaku, Antonio Rudiger, and Andreas Christensen, as well as the possibility of a loan move for Hakim Ziyech.
The Sun Football reports that Dutch international and Juventus star Matthijs De Ligt is favoring a move to Stamford Bridge despite interest from Manchester City, the reigning premier league champion, and Bundesliga powerhouse Bayern Munich.
De Ligt, 22, wants away, thus Chelsea is prepared to negotiate a £65 million fee to secure his services in an effort to bolster their backline.
Chelsea's efforts to sign Jules Kounde have been greatly aided by suggestions that the team is currently seeking for a replacement.
