Jubilations as Chelsea ' Verbally Agree' to Pay £65m for Slovakian Defender as De Ligt's Alternative

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is literally finding it hard to convince his top transfer targets in an attempt to strengthen his squad after loosing some of key players like Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen as free agents.

It should be noted that the Stamford Bridge heavyweights were open to signing Matthijs De Ligt by swapping Timo Werner, a deal that was rejected by Juventus.

However according to the Sun Football, Chelsea have now turned their attention to Inter Milan's defender Milan Skiriniar and willing to pay £65m for the 27 year old centreback.

The Slovakian international is highly rated by Thomas Tuchel and he's being considered as a perfect target to replace Antonio Rudiger. This has come as a surprising move considering the reluctancy of Sevilla to let Jules Kounde join his dream club.

Meanwhile, Todd Boehly is in direct contact with Manchester City over signing Raheem Sterling with Ousmane Dembele as well tipped to land at Stamford Bridge as a free agent.
