Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, wants to bring in Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe, to replace Antonio Rudiger at Stamford Bridge, according to L’Equipe.
Rudiger’s current deal with the Blues is set to expire at the end of the season.
The German is attracting attention from big European clubs like Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
With Rudiger potentially leaving in a matter of months, it seems that Tuchel is already targeting someone he is familiar with to add to his squad.
Tuchel is eyeing a reunion with 26 year old French international, who he worked with at PSG. The center back defender was among the French team who won the 2018 World Cup.
Kimpembe and Tuchel had spent two years together at the Parc des Princes, winning Ligue 1 twice and making the Champions League final in 2020.
