Christopher Nkunku hands Thomas Tuchel transfer update as Chelsea challenge PSG to defender deal

Chelsea are set to have one of the busiest summer transfer windows in the top-flight with Todd Boehly no doubt being handed a long to-do list by Thomas Tuchel.

New defenders, midfielders and forwards are all on the wish list if the Blues are to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League. That is, in part, due to a looming exodus at Stamford Bridge too with Antonio Rudiger already completing his free transfer to Real Madrid while Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso could all be on the move too.

A number of big names have been linked with moves to Stamford Bridge but no deals have got over the lines at the time of writing. With that in mind, football.london looks at all the latest rumours from west London.

Loftus-Cheek set for Inter move

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has been offered to Inter Milan for £17 million, according to Italian outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport. The 26-year-old has struggled to cement a regular spot in the Chelsea starting-eleven, though he has impressed when called upon.

Coincidentally, or not, Romelu Lukaku has been heavily linked with a move back to the Nerazzurri this summer. And, with the Italian giants under financial restraints due to financial fair play guidelines, Loftus-Cheek could offer the west Londoners leverage.

Kimpembe speaks out on future

Presnel Kimpembe has given an update on his future at Paris Saint-Germain amid interest from Chelsea ahead of the upcoming transfer window. The 27-year-old, who has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge lately, sees his contract at Les Parc des Princes expire in June 2024.

The defender is set to meet with PSG’s newly-appointed sporting director Luis Campo this summer to discuss his future, in what has been described by Kimpembe as a ‘key moment’ in his career. He featured 41 times for the French giants this season, steering the club towards the Ligue 1 title.

Speaking to French radio network RMC Sport, as quoted by GFFN, Kimpembe clarified his intentions ahead of the summer transfer window amid interest from Chelsea. He said: “Everyone knows the love I have for Paris Saint-Germain – it’s reciprocal.

“I’ll be 27 in August, it’s a key moment in my career. I’m waiting to meet with the new management with regard to the club’s project. We’ll have to speak very soon.”

Nkunku breaks silence

Christopher Nkunku has lifted the lid on his future after having become one of the most coveted players ahead of the upcoming transfer window. The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this season after an incredibly fruit-bearing campaign at RB Leipzig.

Chelsea remain interested in the forward ahead of the summer transfer window, football.london understands. Nkunku was scouted by the Blues this season, and Thomas Tuchel’s side could look to make a move for him this summer.

In an interview with French television broadcaster Telefoot this weekend, as quoted by GFFN, the highly sought-after forward broke his silence regarding his next step. Nkunku said: “It’s no secret. There are clubs interested in me. Yes it’s flattering, but it’s also flattering to have a club like Leipzig do everything to keep me as well.

“I’ll have to reflect well and make a decision. The World Cup is on the way and that’s another factor to take into account.”
