Chelsea are considering making a move for Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt.
Thomas Tuchel is determined to add defensive reinforcements and, although another move for Sevilla’s Jukes Koundé cannot be discounted, alternatives are also being considered.
And one of them is the Dutch international whose current deal with Juventus ends in June 2024.
There have been suggestions that the West London club are ready to offer Timo Werner plus cash to get the services of de Light who first burst onto the scene with Ajax before securing his move to Italy.
Tuchel’s men will get the chance to run the rule over de Light when the two sides meet in the group phase of the Champions League.
