Thomas Tuchel's side have been defensively sound since his appointment. Two goals conceded in just 13 games has seen the Blues remain unbeaten, winning nine and drawing four.

Chelsea are also looking to extend the contracts of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, while they are also working on handing Thiago Silva a new one-year deal with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season. 

With the array of options at the back for Tuchel, including Ethan Ampadu and Marc Guehi returning, possibly Fikayo Tomori too but unlikely, he has some choices to make in the backline this summer if he is looking to bring in a new centre-back.
