Chelsea have made approach to bring world class defender to the Bridge

Get the Chelsea word out there!

Chelsea have made a transfer approach to Juventus about a possible deal for Matthijs de Ligt.

There is alot of rumours that Tuchel will be backed in the transfer window and will look to add another defender, a midfielder and maybe a striker to his attack in order to win every possible title that they will be competing for, with De Light on the agenda.

Regarded as one of the best young central defenders in the game, De Light has not had the best of seasons, like Many Juve players this year, and there were some rumours floating about that the Italians may be open to selling the defender.

And According to Tuttosport, the club reached out to Juventus to sound out a possible move for Matthijs de Ligt.But the report also claims the Serie A giants responded quickly with a resounding rejection

The news comes after Peter Crouch, writing for the Daily Mail, claimed we will challenge City for major trophies next term if they sign a centre-back: “Another transfer window, Charlie,” he said when asked what the Blues need to close the gap on City.

“If Chelsea can get a top-class central defender, one out of the highest bracket, that would put them in with a huge chance next season.

“Thomas Tuchel took over a really good squad but it is still behind City at the minute, for all the progress they have made.

“I cannot wait to see the next steps Tuchel and Chelsea make because I have been bowled over by the impact he has made.

“I’m so impressed and nobody in Europe would want to play them in their current form.

“They put a marker down for the Champions League final on Saturday. City will not play the line-up they used at the weekend on May 29 but it will be in their minds, the damage Chelsea can do in a one-off match.

“If you were giving me a free bet on that outcome, I would back Chelsea at the respective odds.”
