Chelsea gave Christopher Nkunku a transfer tip as Jorginho’s brutal contract decision was made

Chelsea are likely to be one of the busiest clubs in the Premier League this summer, with plenty of uncertainty across the first-team squad. Todd Boehly’s early days have been dominated by transfer planning, with a number of high-profile names reportedly already being targeted.

The departures of Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen have already been confirmed by Thomas Tuchel but they might not be the last to leave. Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech have all been linked with departures and it remains to be seen how the first-team squad will fare as pre-season begins.

Nevertheless, it is a challenge that those affected have to face. In this sense, football.london has looked at the latest names to be associated with the move to Stamford Bridge.

Christopher Nunku

Chelsea target Christopher Nkunku has given a hint about his future this summer after some striking words were released on Sunday. When asked if he will play RB Leipzig in this window, the striker replied: “Paris is my home, my favorite club. I don’t close doors.

“Anything is possible in football. It’s nice that the biggest clubs in the world are interested in me. But it’s also nice to see that Leipzig is doing everything to keep me.”

However, Leipzig are trying to sign the forward to a new contract this summer football.london understands Chelsea remain interested in signing him after scouting the striker during the 2021/22 season. Nkunku scored 35 goals in 51 appearances for the Bundesliga club last season.

Jorginho

Chelsea are reportedly ready to let go of Jorginho this summer, according to 90min. The Italian has attracted interest from Spain but a Serie A return seems more likely.

With new ownership under Todd Boehly’s consortium likely to herald a squad reshuffle and the 30-year-old’s future uncertain with his contract due to expire in 2023, this summer offers the last chance to make a good transfer.

Juventus are admirers, while former boss Maurizio Sarri, who mentored Jorginho at Napoli and signed him for Chelsea, would be keen to reunite at Lazio.

Gleison Bremer

The defensive target of Gleison Bremer could already be out of reach for the Blues this window. Inter Milan are ahead of Chelsea in the race to land the 25-year-old, according to reports from Italian outlet Calcio Mercato.

Bremer is considered one of Serie A’s strongest defenders, capable of playing down the left flank of a back three, a position Thomas Tuchel is forced to fill following Antonio Rudiger’s departure to Real Madrid.
