Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly is set to meet the representatives of some of the club’s defensive targets today, according to Dean Jones (via GiveMeSport).
The transfer insider has told GIVEMESPORT that the west London outfit have already begun talks with potential alternatives to Jules Kounde and that Boehly is set for a fresh round of discussions.
As per the Daily Mail, Chelsea are currently weighing up a move for Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana.
The above comes after another central defensive target, Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, closes in on a switch to Barcelona.
Thomas Tuchel was eyeing Kounde following the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, which have left Chelsea light at the back.
As well as Fofana, Inter Milan star Milan Skriniar is also thought to be on the Blues’ list of alternatives to Kounde.
Jones has revealed that Boehly has meetings scheduled today with the representatives of different defensive targets.
Speaking to GMS, the journalist said: “Chelsea have begun talks about back-up defensive options, and I understand Todd Boehly has a couple of key meetings on Wednesday with representatives of players they are looking to recruit in that area.
“They have to move fast with this; Tuchel is not happy with the current options he has.”
