Five defenders Chelsea have been linked with ahead of Rudiger and Christensen transfer decisions

Five defenders Chelsea have been linked with ahead of Rudiger and Christensen transfer decisions

Chelsea could well be on the hunt for much-needed central defensive recruits sooner than later.

According to the report by, the future of the likes of Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, and Cesar Azpilicueta all remain hugely uncertain with their contracts set to expire at the end of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Malang Sarr has also been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, with Inter Milan reportedly emerging as the most likely candidate for the Frenchman’s signature.

Whilst it seems unlikely that Chelsea would let each of the four go, just a couple of departures would leave the Blues looking light at the back, especially after the sales of Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma, and Marc Guehi in the summer.

It is exactly why the Blues could be set to launch a bid for a centre-back either in January or in the summer.

Other top football news:

Jules Kounde

One of the names strongly linked to Chelsea throughout the summer was that of Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde. Jamb result

The Blues publicly courted the Frenchman throughout the summer as they once again aimed to add to their defensive options.  It is reported that the Blues still hold an interest in Kounde and a move could potentially happen in January.

Wesley Fofana

Should Chelsea once again fail to sign Kounde, they could turn to his compatriot Wesley Fofana.

It has been suggested that the Blues have already made contact with the Leicester man’s representatives so it could certainly be one to keep an eye on in the near future.

He remains restricted to the sidelines though having suffered a horrendous pre-season injury.

Matthijs de Ligt

Another name that Chelsea have been linked with in the past is Dutchman Matthijs de Ligt.

De Ligt has since struggled to impose himself in Turin and despite having a contract that is set to run until the summer of 2024, it has been suggested that Juventus could ‘sacrifice’ the 22-year-old as they aim to bolster their squad after a disappointing couple of seasons domestically.

The rest of the players include the likes of Eder Militao of Real Madrid and Attila Szalai of Fenerbahce.
