Chelsea have successfully concluded an emphatic season for them, winning the Premier League for the sixth time in their history and are looking to build on the success in the next season as well. The Blues are looking to bring in a number of players to strengthen their side even further and are looking to successfully defend the title.

The West London club are well known for their big money spending nature in the transfer market, and this time it is not going to be any different. Reportedly, Chelsea have already closed in on two very important signings in the form of defensive midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from the French Ligue 1 champions AS Monaco and Everton’s star striker Romelu Lukaku as a replacement for their Spanish marksman Diego Costa, who is almost sure to be kept out of the plans by their manager Antonio Conte.

As per sources, the Blues are looking to make another bid, the player being Jerome Boateng, the Bayern Munich centre back. The German international is one of the most influential centre backs in the current scenario and the rumour has come as a shock for many of the fans of both the sides.

Chelsea coach Conte is much dependant on his revised 3-4-3 combination, which has largely been his key to success in the last season as well and is looking for players who can give stability to the backline in the forthcoming season. The inclusion of the Bayern defender might also be happening as a backup for their inspirational ex-captain and defensive beast John Terry, who left the team to end his legendary career at Stamford Bridge at the end of the last season.

Boateng has been one of the most crucial factors for his club as well as country and has played a very crucial role in his team, Bayern Munich’s backline over the last few seasons. However, his season was cut short by injuries, which might have prompted the current Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti to have a thought about offloading his star defender in the next season.

The 28-year-old German defender is going to cost any team who is interested in him in excess of £30 million. The decision by the Premier League champions might also have come as a precautionary measure for the inability to capture the Dutch defender Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton and the Italian side Juventus not agreeing to let go of their prized possession Leonardo Bonucci to join the Blues in the next season.
