Chelsea, the Champions League winners, have been struggling since an injury disrupted their excellent performances in the English Premier League. However, they are now trying to add additional players to their team to fill the void left by an injury.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is reportedly looking to bolster his roster ahead of the start of the winter transfer window by completing a number of recruits that are expected to provide cover for injured players as well as unpredictable covid-19 situations at Cobham training center.
According to recent rumours from Spain, the Germany tactician is aware that a backup to injured Ben Chilwel and Reece James is essential.
Chelsea have reportedly agreed in principle to sign the American international and Barcelona defender Sergino Dest for a £25 million transfer to Stamford Bridge, according to Football London.
Dest, 21, is being considered as a perfect target to replace Tuchel’s right back, with transfer talks being set up due to the fact that he is now a priority signing for the UEFA Champions League winners.
Meanwhile, according to the same story, Everton’s left back Lucas Digne is eager to join Chelsea, according to his agent, with the Blues not being too serious about his move.
