Chelsea targeting second RB Leipzig defender as well as Josko Gvardiol

Chelsea are already looking at trying to sign one young RB Leipzig defender, and now they are looking at another as well.

As you can see below, Chelsea are continuing to be linked with Gvardiol from all the top sources.

Sources: Big positive Declan Rice to Chelsea update!

But he isn’t the only one from Leipzig on Chelsea’s radar, according to sources at Si & Dan Talk Chelsea.

We’ve been told over there that the Chelsea defence could be strengthened in the winter window. Chelsea have added Mohamed Simakan to their list of defensive targets for January, or the summer.

Chelsea are considering signing a new centre back in January because they feel they don’t have enough cover there at the moment.

With Wesley Fofana’s injury (back very soon but condition and match fitness concerns), Kalidou Koulibaly struggling a bit of late with knee issues, Thiago Silva’s age, Cesar Azpilicueta suffering with injuries and overloads, as well as Trevoh Chalobah having to play every single minute and further overload concerns for him, they feel there is a need to add another defender as soon as possible.
