It is no surprise at all to see Chelsea linked with signing potential new defenders with their own situation still being no clearer right now.
The Blues have four defenders in the last year of their current contracts at the club and even though it looks more likely that they should be able secure Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta for another season at least, the futures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are still rather up in the air right now.

This leads to more rumours and links to Chelsea wanting to sign other defenders from around the world, and one of those is Barcelona centre back, Ronald Araújo, according to Spanish publication Sport, as cited by Sport Witness today.
The 22-year old is also a Uruguayan international and Chelsea reportedly have an ‘enormous interest’ in signing the player due to his ‘physical characteristics’ that Thomas Tuchel likes.
