Rio Ferdinand says Chelsea need look no further than Paris Saint-Germain’s Marquinhos if they are looking to sign a defender in the transfer window.
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.
Marquinhos is a player that Tuchel knows very well from his time with PSG, and there has been some speculation in the media that he is one of the players that Tuchel would like to Bring to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
And Ferdinand says there is only one player they should be looking at to upgrade their defence, identifying PSG skipper Marquinhos as one of the very best centre-backs in the world.
‘If any team is in the market for a centre-back, right now, out of the top teams, with the finances, Marquinhos is the only place I’m going,’ Ferdinand said on his Vibe with Five YouTube show
‘Big-game player. Every big game you see that guy play he turns up.
‘Fit as you like, quick, robust, hardened, battle-hardened, understands the big-game environments. Top, top player, great attitude, leader, got it all.
‘If I’m looking for a centre-back of experience who can take me to the next level, he’s the one I’m going for.’
Look, if we manage to secure a transfer deal for Marquinhos, it would be a world class bit of business by the club to do.
