Chelsea desperate to agree deal for €70m-rated Brazil international


Chelsea have shortlisted PSG defender Marquinhos as a potential summer signing as they continue to look for options to strengthen their back-line. The German manager would ‘love’ to add the 28-year-old centre-back, who he managed in Paris.

The Blues are ready for a mass exodus, leaving them needing reinforcements in almost every department. The world’s most expensive goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, finally looks to be heading towards the exit door after falling down the pecking order since Mendy’s arrival.

There could be departures from the midfield too as both Jorginho and Kante have only a year remaining on their respective deals with the club. In the attacking department, Lukaku, Werner and Ziyech have been linked with possible exits.

But it is the defensive unit where the Blues are in desperate need of adding reinforcements. First-choice defenders Christensen and Rudiger will not be with the club next campaign.

While Christensen has reportedly agreed on terms with Barcelona, the German tactician has already completed his move to Real Madrid. Brazil international has been with PSG since 2013 and is now the club captain as well.

Thomas Tuchel, however, is an admirer of Marquinhos and wants to get him on board this summer. Thomas Tuchel managed the South American defender during his managerial stint with the French giants between 2018 and 2020.

Chelsea could find it hard to convince PSG into selling the Brazilian, however, as he is one of their most important footballers.
