Chelsea return to the Premier League on Saturday against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. The Blues are currently third in the league, 16 points behind leaders Manchester City who have played one game more.

Meanwhile, Blues manager Thomas Tuchel is preparing to target three superstar signings this summer. Elsewhere, the London side are watching a Brighton & Hove Albion defender.

On that note, here’s a rundown of Chelsea’s top transfer stories as of February 14, 2022:


Thomas Tuchel’s three summer targets revealed

Chelsea have identified their top three targets for the summer, including Declan Rice.

Chelsea have identified their top three goals for the summer, according to Caught offside via The Telegraph. The Blues refrained from investing in the transfer market in January. However, Tuchel could be looking for three players at the end of the season.

The Blues’ hierarchy are happy that the German didn’t push for reinforcements in January. They could now reward him with the freedom to pursue three of his favorite targets through the summer. The Londoners plan to secure the services of Declan Rice and Aurélien Tchouameni as well as Jules Kounde at the end of the season.

Chelsea have had their eyes on Rice for some time. The Englishman came through the ranks at Stamford Bridge but was allowed to leave before he could make his first-team debut.

It turned out to be a terrible decision as the 23-year-old became one of the best defensive midfielders in Europe. His emergence has also impressed Tuchel, who wants the West Ham man in his squad.

However, Rice is expected to cost a fortune, which is why the German has Tchouameni on his shortlist as well.

The AS Monaco midfielder has been exceptional for the Monaco Ligue 1 side lately. The 22-year-old has also made his debut in the France team and already looks like a future superstar. The Blues are confident the Frenchman could become a mainstay in the center of the park for years to come.

Interestingly, the London side could lose both Jorginho and N’Golo Kante this summer. As such, Chelsea could attempt to sign both Rice and Tchouameni at the end of the season. The Blues also have an eye on their back line, which could run out due to a mass exodus this summer.

Tuchel pre-selected Koundé to solve his defensive enigma. The Premier League giants failed in their bid to sign the Frenchman last season. However, Chelsea are determined to get the defender from Sevilla this year.

Chelsea are considering a move for Adam Webster, according to The mirror. The London side are eager to strengthen their backline this year, with three of their current first-team stars facing uncertain futures.

Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen could all leave Stamford Bridge at the end of their respective contracts this summer. Tuchel therefore has his eyes on Webster to solve the problem.

The Englishman has been exceptional for Brighton & Hove Albion since joining them in 2019. The Blues are monitoring a host of defenders ahead of the summer, and the 27-year-old has been added to that list.


The Blues are planning a summer move for Raphinha

Thomas Tuchel is eager to add more firepower to his attack this year. The German is unimpressed with the options at his disposal, with new signing Romelu Lukaku struggling to find his feet. Tuchel thinks Raphinha could add a new dimension to his attack.

The Brazilian has been one of Leeds United’s shining lights in recent seasons. The 25-year-old is likely to take a step up from Leeds this summer so the Blues are keen to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
