Chelsea’s German coach Thomas Tuchel is looking for new defensive reinforcements this summer and is already said to have identified the players.
The Blues have an exemplary defense record since Tuchel took office, conceding just two goals in 13 games under his new three- or five-defenders system.
However, Tuchel is expected to make changes this summer to seal his authority in the squad.
According to the medium The Athletic, Tuchel has already identified three world-class quarterbacks whom he wants to bring to Stamford Bridge this summer.
One of them is the seven-time winner with Bayern Munich, Niklas Sule, who faces stiff competition for the title spot at the Allianz Arena.
France U21 international and RB Leipzig player Ibrahima Konate is also on Tuchel’s wish list.
Finally, Atletico Madrid strong defender Jose Gimenez will be a more experienced alternative, as he has seven regular seasons in La Liga. / Telegraphy /
