Chelsea dealt defender blow

Chelsea have been dealt a blow with the news that one of their summer targets has agreed to join another club.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have made central defence a key area that needs strengthening in the summer, with both Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen set to leave the club as free agents at the end of the season.

One man who was on their wish list to fill one of the vacancies was Niklas Süle of Bayern Munich, but he has now agreed to join Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund.

Another man of contract in June, the 26-year-old was also the subject of interest from Newcastle United, but he has decided to stay in Germany instead.

With Cesar Azpilicueta also set to leave the club as well, the Stamford Bridge outfit may find themselves short of defensive cover, and several signings may be needed to fill the gaps.
