Chelsea centre back target ‘will hand in a transfer request’

Whilst the current football season remains entirely up in the air, Chelsea will still be planning their potential transfer business for this summer regardless.

One area they have been touted to bring in a reinforcement is centre back, as Frank Lampard looks to sure up his back line.

The Blues boss has constantly shuffled between his four current options Fikayo Tomori, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger and Kurt Zouma throughout the season, suggesting he isn’t entirely sold on any of them just yet.

One player who is a number one target for that area is RB Leipzig centre back Dayot Upamecano, according to The Mirror.

The 21-year old certainly fits the bill as the type of dominant defender Lampard is looking to bring in, and he is prepared to hand in a transfer request this summer to force a move out, according to German outlet BILD (as cited by The Sun).

It could be an interesting time when the transfer window does reopen!
