Chelsea news and transfers live: £25m windfall, Kane enquiry, Hazard response
Hello and welcome along to football.london’s daily Chelsea news and transfer news live blog, bringing you all the very latest news from Stamford Bridge.
After laying their hands on the UEFA Champions League title a week ago, the Blues are now putting plans in place ahead of the start of next season, with head coach Thomas Tuchel, who yesterday extended his stay at the club until the summer of 2024, eager to put his own stamp of authority on his squad.
The German is desperate to add fresh blood to his squad this summer, most notably in the form of a striker, with finding a player to have scored goals on a regular basis having been a difficulty in recent months.
A whole host of names have been linked with moves to Chelsea, but it remains to be seen which target Tuchel will go for, although finances are almost certain to dictate his decision.
As well as chasing a striker, other positions are in need of bolstering.
With that in mind, be sure to stay with us throughout the day for all the very latest from Stamford Bridge as it happens.
