Report: Chelsea line up world class operator to front huge double deal; Arsenal star bait in Serie A swap

In Thursday’s Euro Paper Talk, Chelsea might balance their defensive losses by acquiring Kalidou Koulibaly as part of a two-part deal, while an Arsenal star could be used to entice a full-back to north London.

RUDIGER TO BE REPLACED BY KOULIBALY?
This summer, Chelsea is dealing with a defensive problem. Real Madrid will sign Antonio Rudiger as a free agent, while Barcelona has been connected with Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta.

In the Thomas Tuchel era, all three have predominantly played at centre-back, and considering that the German employs a back three, strong depth is essential.

Chelsea would still have Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah, and Malang Sarr on the books if the trio left. A squad battling on four fronts each season, on the other hand, cannot rely on so few choices.

As a result, Caught Offside predicts the signing of two new centre-halves this summer, once the club’s fines are released.

Once the new owners are in place, such limitations will be lifted. According to the report, the new back-line would be led by Napoli’s Koulibaly.

By the start of next season, Koulibaly will be 31 years old, yet he remains a top level operator in Naples.

Chelsea have made touch with Koulibaly’s agent, Fali Ramadani, according to Calciomercato writer Matteo Moretto.

Koulibaly’s’super’ offer is essential.
At the end of the season, Koulibaly’s contract with Napoli will be up. As a result, if it becomes clear that he will not sign new terms, this summer may be the best moment to cash in.

Regardless, the journalist stated that a “super offer” could be necessary, but did not specify how much that might be.

The second target in a double deal was hinted at in Caught Offside’s story, and his name is one that Blues fans will recognize.
Jules Kounde is referenced once more, with Sky Sports citing his prior declaration that he wants to leave Sevilla this summer.

Chelsea pursued Kounde last summer, but Sevilla was in a strong negotiation position and refused to give in.

On Monday, TEAMtalk learnt that the 23-year-old is nearly set to leave Seville in 12 months.
