Chelsea are set for another summer of free-spending ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
Thomas Tuchel, who only took over days before the January transfer window closed, will no doubt be looking to make his mark on the already talented Blues squad.
Chelsea are one of a number of teams in the hunt for Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Erling Haaland, but have a host of alternatives in the pipeline.
There are also rumours that Tuchel will be looking to strengthen his defence, especially with Thiago Silva yet to extend his contract.
Transfer news is coming thick and fast at Stamford Bridge, with the potential that they’ll make a move for a defensive midfielder as well.
Mirror Football brings you the latest news and rumours for Chelsea’s transfer activity.
Blues join Wijnaldum race
Chelsea have reportedly emerged as surprise contenders to sign of Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum this summer.
The 30-year-old Dutch midfielder’s future has been the subject of fierce debate over recent months, with his contract with the Reds due to expire in June.
Wijnaldum has most commonly been linked with a switch to Barcelona if he decides to call it a day at Anfield.
But according to Spanish outlet Marca, Chelsea are also in the running, with Thomas Tuchel seeing Wijnaldum as a potentially perfect addition to his squad.
Allardyce gives youngster advice
West Brom manager Sam Allardyce has urged Chelsea youngster Conor Gallagher to rejoin the Baggies on loan for another year if they manage to stay up this season.
The 19-year-old has impressed for the relegation battlers this term, and Big Sam wants to see him progress even further at The Hawthorns.
He said: “If we stay in the Premier League I’d hope he is here next season not at Chelsea. He’d be better off having another season with us rather than the competitive size of the Chelsea squad.
“He is learning and development level at 19 has been improved. I have seen a good player since I have been here. I heard how good he was before I came.
“I think every day and every game he plays in the Premier League he gains more experience. When you lose more than you win, which he is experiencing for the first time, it makes you tougher. More determined.”
Gianluigi Donnarumma update
Chelsea are still in the hunt to sign AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, according to reports from Italy.
The 25-year-old is out of contract with his boyhood club this summer, and talks are not thought to have progressed much in recent weeks.
Donnarumma’s hard-nosed agent Mino Raiola is playing hardball with Rossenieri chiefs, reports gianlucadimarzio.com, leaving the Italy international in a precarious position.
Edouard Mendy has impressed between the sticks for the Blues this season but may not be the man to do the job for the long-term, while the future of major flop Kepa Arrizabalaga remains up in the air.
