Chelsea Transfer News: The bidding process is set to be completed before the end of April. Hence the identity of the next club owner is set to be revealed in a matter of days.
Roman Abramovich was forced to sell the club in March after facing heavy criticism due to Russia’s attack on Ukraine. Hence Chelsea Football Club had also been sanctioned after the UK government froze all of the Russian billionaire’s assets within the country.
The mood at Chelsea has not been the best since the club was sanctioned by the UK government. Hence it is expected that the new owners would make a marquee signing to gauge the interest of the fans.
Owing to this, the club officials have reportedly shortlisted three players. This shortlist would be presented to owners once the takeover is complete. As per caught offside, Chelsea are expected to sign at least one the following players:
Chelsea Transfer News: Declan Rice could make the big money move!

West Ham United’s Declan Rice has drawn the attention of multiple Premier League clubs. Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United are supposedly looking to fight it out for the midfielder.
Declan Rice has been resolute in the midfield. The defensive midfielder has played a key role in helping the Hammers’ backline. To add to this, the England international has scored 1 goal and provided 4 assists in 30 Premier League games this season.
Chelsea are interested in the midfielder but signing Rice would not be cheap by any means. West Ham United are demanding £150 to let the England international leave. Hence this would certainly be a “marquee” signing for the Blues.
Chelsea Transfer News: Jules Kounde to guard the backline next season?
Jules Kounde is another player who has drawn a lot of attention from multiple European teams. The defender is currently in the midst of an excellent season with Sevilla.
The 23-year-old center-back has drawn the attention of Manchester United, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and Chelsea. Hence the Blues could face a bidding war in signing Kounde.
Jules Kounde’s signing could be very important because Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger are rumoured to be leaving in the summer. Hence the Sevilla defender could slot right into the starting XI.

Will Aurelien Tchouameni be a good option?
Monaco’s midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni is another player that the Blues have set their eyes on. The defensive midfielder has been a mainstay in the starting XI and has impressed fans and pundits alike.
Paris Saint-Germain are also prioritizing the signing of Aurelien Tchouameni and hence this would increase the midfielder’s price. Nevertheless, Chelsea would prove to be an exciting destination if the French international decides to move out of Monaco in the summer.
