‘A long way’ – Chelsea interested in 36-cap Dutch international to replace departing defenders

0

Chelsea are currently making plans to replace two departing defenders this summer, with potentially even more joining them, write the Chelsea News.

There will be a few holes to plug this summer for Thomas Tuchel and the new Chelsea owners in the Blues defence, let’s just put it that way.

A name has been suggested as one replacement for either Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger, and that is Juventus centre-back, Matthijs De Ligt.

According to TalkSPORT today, Chelsea are interested in the 36-cap Dutch international this summer and could make a move for the 22-year-old.

His experience and quality could be something that appeals to Chelsea as they look to replace experienced departing players.

There is a long way to go yet though, and it remains to be seen whether Chelsea will bring in one or two new centre-backs this summer, and they might even need more defenders than that depending on circumstances.
