Hull City Keen To Bag This Chelsea Youngster: Can Slutsky Pull This Off?

Hull City are looking to make a good start to the season in the Championship following their exit from top flight football in the last term. However, they might have to do it without some of their most important players, who might be leaving the club in the summer, including the likes of defenders Harry Maguire and Andrew Robertson, with Curtis Davies already departing for his term with Derby County.

Leonid Slutsky, the new manager replacing Marco Silva for their new season, has the daunting task in hand to rebuild the side which will have to fare without the aforementioned players in their ranks. He has already got quite a few names figured out whom he wants to be brought into the side for the next season, and one of them, which is on the top of their priority list is the Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas.

Tomas Kalas has been playing on loan for all the seasons since his arrival at Stamford Bridge in 2010. In the recently concluded season, he played for the Championship side Fulham and had a pretty impressive season with them, which has attracted quite a few clubs from the Championship to secure his services for the next term.

The Czech Republic international played 40 matches for the Fulham side in the last season and was the mainstay in their backline, helping them to secure a place in the playoff semi-final, which they lost to Reading. The 24-year-old centre-back also scored one goal to show for his efforts and has provided one assist for his teammates as well.

Now that the season is over, the young defender is back with Chelsea, who will probably be letting him go either on loan or on permanent basis. The Tigers are looking to take advantage of the situation and are going to offer the Czech centre back a contract which will see him get associated with the newly relegated club from the Premier League on a permanent basis.

Kalas came to Chelsea from Sigma Olomouc in the year 2010 on a transfer fee of £5.2 million, but it is very unlikely that the Blues will be letting go off him for a price similar or better than the aforementioned amount. While Hull City are looking to bag the player for the next season, Fulham are also reportedly planning a swoop for the in-demand defender, looking to avail his services on a long term basis.
