According to the Telegraph, the south west London club is debating whether to make a temporary transfer for the 26-year-old midfielder before the end of the month.
According to the same report, the Blues are holding off on making a decision on Saul until they receive bids for some of their periphery midfielders. Chelsea FC are close to re-signing both Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, according to the report.
According to the article, Chelsea FC are open to the thought of loaning Saul Niguez, even though they are not in the market for a new midfielder right now.
According to the source, the south west London club is willing to offload midfielders Ross Barkley, Danny Drinkwater, and Tiemoue Bakayoko this summer to make room in their squad.
Saul has already made two La Liga appearances for Atletico Madrid this season, scoring two goals and assisting once in the league during the club's title-winning campaign last season.
Sal guez Esclápez, also known as Sal, is a Spanish professional footballer who currently plays for Atlético Madrid and the Spanish national team as a central or defensive midfielder. He played in almost 300 competitive matches for Atlético Madrid after coming through the club's junior academy.
Chelsea may see the opportunity to sign Sal on loan as a way to put an end to the uncertainty surrounding the futures of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger by providing both central defenders new contracts.
Chelsea are unlikely to spend a lot of money on a midfielder this summer, as West Ham have priced Declan Rice out of the picture. After loaning Billy Gilmour to Norwich, Tuchel may decide he needs additional competition alongside Mateo Kovacic, N'Golo Kanté, and Jorginho.
Kanté has had injury problems in the last two years, and Tuchel admitted that he overused Jorginho at the end of last season. Tuchel is still interested in Sevilla centre-back Jules Koundé. With Ross Barkley, Danny Drinkwater, and Tiémoué Bakayoko all available, a deal for Sal could hinge on Chelsea moving some of their peripheral midfielders before the window closes. Milan are interested in Bakayoko, but Tuchel's assessment of Ethan Ampadu and Ruben Loftus-ability Cheek's to cover for Kanté, Kovacic, and Jorginho remains to be seen.
