The rumors linking Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe to Chelsea continue to get louder, with a recent report suggesting that the 26-year-old is open to a new challenge at Stamford Bridge.
If The Blues do indeed pursue Kimpembe, he will be a piece to manager Thomas Tuchel’s attempt to rebuild the backline, which has seen key figures such as Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger exit this summer.
German journalist Christian Falk ensures that Chelsea intends to recruit Kimpembe to associate him with Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly. The pairing would see two players that bring UEFA Champions League experience; they would only need to adapt to the Premier League.
Tuchel knows Kimpembe from his time at PSG and what qualities the France international brings to the table. Furthermore, Koulibaly is a name that was linked to the French giants when the German boss was at the helm.
The information provided by Falk doesn’t state how much money The Blues would spend on the PSG defender, who has a contract with the capital club until 2024.
