Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has said that the club are not looking to sign a new midfielder during the ongoing transfer window.

  • Borussia Dortmund set Jude Bellingham asking price?
  • Chelsea defender talks up new contract

  • The Blues have been heavily linked with Frenkie de Jong in recent days, but Tuchel has said that the midfield is not a priority at the moment.

    He told Sky Sports News "Yeah, if we can add, we add. Maybe not necessarily a midfielder as a first option but we're open for everything."

    Chelsea are rumoured to have entered the race to sign De Jong, but a deal seems unlikely with the Dutchman reluctant to leave Barcelona.

    The Netherlands international considers the Catalan giants as his dream club, and does not plan to leave them in the current transfer window.

    Meanwhile, the Blues are hot on the trail of Wesley Fofana and there is the anticipation that he could join the club in the next few days.

    They have already failed with a couple of bids for the Frenchman, and reports claim that they are ready to make a fresh £80m offer.
