Chelsea 'turn to Dybala' after Haaland blow


Although they made record-breaking deals in the transfer window which preceded this season, Chelsea are once again set to be active in the market.

Despite Thomas Tuchel improving Chelsea’s solidity, they have continued to look vulnerable at the back, making defence another area the club will aim to strengthen.

Departures are also set to be seen at Stamford Bridge at the end of the campaign, with Tuchel looking to overhaul the squad in his own image.
