Chelsea Transfer predicament

Chelsea are weighing up an approach for a new centre-back this summer, with Rudiger and Christensen's contract talks currently on hold.

The Blues have long been targeting a new left-back but they are increasingly considering signing a new central defender.

-

Frank Lampard admires West Ham's Declan Rice - who is a close friend of Mason Mount and previously played as a centre-back during his time at Chelsea's academy - but the Hammers aren't open to selling their key asset unless relegation to the Championship forces them to reassess the situation.

-

If Chelsea does enter the market for a new central defender then they will likely face competition from Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal, who are all looking to improve their backline.

-

Meanwhile, Bayer Leverkusen's Kai Havertz is willing to join Chelsea and they face little competition for his signature as he looks to leave his club this summer, however, his £90m price tag remains an obstacle that will require some negotiation.
