Chelsea is on of the best teams in the current premier league season. It began the season on a high with convincing wins, thr arrival of Romelu Lukaku added to their existing attacking options. Lukaku on his part has not disappointed since he scored on his debut and other consequent games.
The London club also has one of the most stable defenses that has allowed the fewest goals. Despite not signing their transfer target Jules Kounde, it seems Rudiger and Thiago Silva have what it takes to lead the defense line up. However, the club is said to be in search for the new center back. This might be due to frustrations of not landing one last summer.
Chelsea however sold Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori due to the large number of defenders. The good news for Chelsea fans is that the club is willing to part with 102 million euros in order to bring Juventus center back Matthijs de Ligt. According to Spanish outlet AS, the London club is in need of a player to come in since Thiago Silva is 26 years and has a few years to play on.
It is now likely that they will drop their pursuit of Sevilla's Kounde and go all in for the Dutchman. The transfer might materialize on January or next summer. Club owner Roman Abramovic is known to be adamant about landing De Light who was instrumental in Juventus first win of the season.
