Tuchel asks Boehly to complete the Chelsea signing of PSG star


Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel wants to sign Paris Saint-Germain’s Presnel Kimpembe during the summer transfer window

We all know that Chelsea are losing a whole bunch of that back-line over the course of the transfer window – and have been eyeing up a number of possible players that could help solve their impending issues

The clubs top target was believed to be Jules Kounde – with recent reports claiming that he has already agreed personal terms – but Chelsea have been unable to agree a fee with Sevilla at this moment.

Now – according to reports on the Sun website – Tuchel has asked new owner Ted Boehly to delve into that transfer kitty and try to sign the very impressive Kimpembe.

When Tuchel left the Parc des Princes 18 months ago, Kimpembe was disappointed to see the 46-year-old leave after the German helped the player win two Lige 1 Titles and reach the Champions League final

He said, via Twitter: ‘Thank you coach for these years. Thank you to you and your team for your high standards, your trust, your enormous work, which allowed us to win many trophies together. I wish you the best for your next adventures.’

In eight years at PSG, he has won five Ligue 1 titles and four French cups including three double triumphs.

Kimpenbe is a very happy at PSG – and considering they are one of the richest clubs on the planet – they have no desire to sell the player

There is no amount of money that would convince them to sell – so unless the Frenchman requests that he can leave – Boehly will not be able to give Tuchel this transfer signing

There are other options though – so it will be interesting to see just who arrives in the transfer window
