The Blues’ midfield is set to look very different come the start of next season.
Matteo Kovacic is on the verge of a move to Manchester City, Mason Mount looks set to join Manchester United and Ruben Loftus-Cheek has been linked with AC Milan. Elsewhere, N’Golo Kante is well past his best and injuries look set to end his Chelsea stint sooner than fans would have liked.
So, it seems clear that midfield reinforcements will be needed this summer.
And now, two major names have been linked with a Stamford Bridge switch.
According to 90min, Chelsea could try to sign both Brighton’s Moises Caicedo and West Ham’s Declan Rice over the coming weeks in what would be a sensational double swoop.
Chelsea face an issue with both of the aforementioned players, however, as they are also targets of Arsenal.
The Gunners will also have Champions League football next season, whilst Chelsea have no form of European football to entice players with.
However, Chelsea are likely to be able to offer more money for these players than Arsenal, which was a key factor in them landing Mykhailo Mudryk from Shakhtar after he was heavily tipped for an Emirates switch.
