Option A

Chelsea has been heavily linked with Jules Kounde. After failing to get him last summer, the club is expected to try again this summer.

If he comes, he could be deployed as a right center-back while Thiago Silva and Trevor Chalobah play in the other two positions.

Option B

According to a reporter for Calcio Mercato in the tweet below, Matthijs de Ligt is Tuchel’s number one target as he looks to bolster his defence in time for next season.
