Chelsea Transfer News Roundup: Blues planning player plus cash offer for Leicester City defender; Juventus ready to move for Jorginho, and more

Chelsea want to build a squad good enough to challenge for the title next season. Thomas Tuchel’s charges had an overwhelming season in the league and in Europe last season.

Meanwhile, the Blues are planning a player-plus-cash deal for a Leicester City defender. Elsewhere, Juventus are ready to sign for Jorginho this summer. With that in mind, here’s a look at the top Chelsea transfer stories as of August 3, 2022:


Chelsea plan player plus cash offer for Wesley Fofana

Chelsea are ready to include Ruben Loftus-Cheek in a bid for Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana, according to journalist Nathan Gissing.

Tuchel is keen to add a new defender to his ranks before the end of the summer. The Germany coach has already signed Kalidou Koulibaly and has Fofana in mind as the ideal partner for the Senegalese.

Excl.: Chelsea have been discussing internally the possibility of using Ruben Loftus-Cheek in a deal for Wesley Fofana since last week. #CFC Hope £40-45m+ Loftus-Cheek could make Leicester think twice about a player not being up for sale. #LCFC hold an interest in RLC.

However, Leicester are not under pressure to sell the Frenchman. Therefore, the Blues plan to include Loftus-Cheek in their offering to convince the Foxes to part with their prized asset.

The London giants believe an offer from Loftus-Cheek plus £40-45million could help get the deal off the ground. Leicester are interested in the Englishman so their stance on Fofana could ease with the addition of Loftus-Cheek to the bid.


Juventus ready to move for Jorginho

Juventus have increased their interest in Jorginho, according to 90 Min. The Italy midfielder is set to leave Chelsea this summer.

Jorginho would like to return to Serie A ahead of the new season and the Bianconeri are ready to grant his wish. With Arthur Melo joining Valencia on loan, the Serie A giants need a new midfielder to fill in his footsteps.

Adrien Rabiot could also be on his way out of Turin as Monaco are keen to secure his signature while Paul Pogba is also out injured.

Juventus believe Jorginho’s arrival could help close the gap in midfield. The Blues are ready to let him go this summer as his current contract expires next year. A loan move could also be an option provided the player signs an extension.

Acclaimed transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Thomas Tuchel played a key role in the Blues’ successful pursuit of Carney Chukwuemeka. The London giants wrestled the highly-rated Englishman from the clutches of AC Milan this week.

On his YouTube channel, Romano said that Tuchel won the race by assuring Chukwuemeka that he would be drafted into the first team immediately.

“People – Thomas Tuchel. The man who changed this story. AC Milan wanted him and guaranteed him a chance to be part of the first team with an important role, but so do other clubs who really like Carney, such as Barcelona. But Carney accepted Chelsea because of Thomas Tuchel. He needs energy in the team; he believes Carney can be ready to help the team immediately and become a top player in the future,” Romano said.

He added:

“Last week there was a meeting between Thomas Tuchel and Carney and his agents and family. This meeting was really important to reach a full agreement and get the green light.”
