Chelsea looking to land new midfielder?
Chelsea are determined to land a new central midfielder during this summer's transfer window, football.london claims.
The club ended the previous campaign on a strong note as they won the Champions League final against Manchester City.
Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is expected to be backed with funds this summer, and the focus appears on different areas of the pitch.
It is added that a new midfielder could be one of the main priorities despite the quality options at the German's disposal.
N'Golo Kante and Jorginho stood out during the final months, but the Blues did struggle when the former was injured.
Tuchel is keen to cover up for the Frenchman. Mateo Kovacic struggled for form during the back end of the season.
There are no standout targets on their shortlist. West Ham United's Declan Rice is no longer an option for the club.
Rice could cost a staggering £100 million after the Hammers secured Europa League football via a sixth-placed league finish.
