Chelsea have ‘already made an approach’ for Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo and are ready to hand him a massive contract offer

With a number of defenders potentially leaving the club at the end of the season, Thomas Tuchel needs to make sure that he brings in the right quality that will fill the boots of the likes of Antonio Rudiger and Cesare Azpilicueta.

Thomas Tuchel has a number of possible players that he would like to bring to the club over the next couple of transfer windows, and that list will keep getting bigger over the course of the season.

Now, they we has learned that the club have made contact in a bid to secure a deal for Araujo

The defender has a contract until June 2023, and renewal talks haven’t been going well, with Araujo’s representatives believing that Barca’s current offers don’t reflect the player’s status in the squad.

The report adds that the club have made it known they are willing to offer him more than double what is currently on the table from Barcelona.

Araujo is a very gifted player that has the ability to make a real impact at the club, so the fact that the club could land him on a bargain deal in the summer, could be a great bit of business by the club

So it will be interesting to see where he will end up as there are a number of clubs that have been keen and that already opened talks to get some kind of transfer deal done

But considering we have the money to fend off most clubs in the game right now, clubs will have a hard time beating the club to the signing, if they shore up that interest and make an official move
