Chelsea have ‘got their eyes’ on Serie A defender also wanted by Juventus

Chelsea are seemingly looking at bringing in a new defender or two, or at least that seems to be the general consensus of the latest transfer rumours regarding potential arrivals anyway.

Nathan Ake from Bournemouth is the name who continually comes up linked to a Chelsea move, but there are others starting to creep into the equation now.

The latest being 19-year old Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla.

Kumbulla has already been capped at senior international level for Albania, and he is starting to get linked with a move to some of the big guns, with Chelsea, Manchester United and Juventus all getting a mention in the report via The Sun today.

The Italian-born defender has only made 12 senior appearances for his team, but he is already being touted as a big future prospect.

It seems like another odd link for Chelsea, following suit of how this window has gone so far, but the defence is an area where it looks like they do look to want to add to either this month, or in the summer.
