Celebrations at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea Reportedly Accepts to Make a Transfer Move for Defender

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is apparently seeking to bolster his defensive department ahead of the January transfer window by buying a world-class centreback who can step in for the elderly Thiago Silva and Cesar Apzilcueta, according to reports.

Similarly, Tuchel is confident about Rudiger's future at Stamford Bridge, despite reports that the Germany international is expecting a large sum of money in exchange for the club agreeing to extend his current contract.

Chelsea have reportedly agreed to make a transfer approach for Juventus and Dutch international Matthjis De Ligt as a result of a potential financial crisis, according to Calciomercato. It is also believed that his agent, Mino Raiola, is working to guarantee that his €120 million release clause is slightly decreased in order to enable a move in the event of a general agreement on personal terms.

Since Rudiger and Christensen are nearing the final year of their contracts, Chelsea should be in a defensive dilemma, as they can't rely on Malang Sarr and Trevor Chalobah alone, as is the case in the best case scenario.

Final question: In your perspective, do you believe Matthijs De Ligt is the best candidate to take over for Thiago Silva?
