With a few days left to the end of the summer transfer window, Chelsea are still in a race to sign more players and hope to get them done before the deadline.
A report via The Athletic revealed Chelsea are “working on deals” to sign Wesley Fofana and Denzel Dumfries this summer.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is keen on adding new defenders to his squad, especially after the departure of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, who left for Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively, on free transfers.
So far the Blues have signed one defender in the person of Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli and lost out on Jules Kounde and Matthijs de Ligt to Barcelona and Bayern Munich respectively.
Tuchel gave an update on their hopes of adding more players to their defence during their US pre-season tour.
The coach said: “We are looking for guys who can play on the left side.
“Toni (Rudiger) played on the left side and was not a left-footed guy, so maybe Kalidou [Koulibaly] can play there because he plays in a back-four on the left side, but let’s see what is possible.”
