Official: Chelsea Completes First Summer Signing of 20yr Old Marquee Player

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is still confident of landing the Brazilian international Raphinha in the coming weeks despite claims that Barcelona are trying to hijack his move to Stamford Bridge with Leeds United firmly respecting their agreement with Todd Boehly.

Besides Raphinha, the Blues are as well monitoring Matthijs De Ligt's situation with the Dutchman viewed as a perfect target to bolister Tuchel's leaking backline following the departure of Antonio Rudiger.

It should be noted that Tuchel's main priority is to sign at least two centrebacks and an attacker in an attempt to utilize Kai Havertz as a central forward with Raheem Sterling and Raphinha as wingers.

However according to the Sun Football, Chelsea have completed their first summer signing of Ethan Wady who has allegedly extended his stay before being offloaded to Woking on a loan move.

The 20 year old goalkeeper will be heading for his fifth loan stint after landing at Chelsea in 2018 as an academy. 

Meanwhile, it's highly tipped that top transfer target for Chelsea Jules Kounde will snub a potential move to premier league.
