Chelsea reportedly interested in signing Nigerian midfielder from Arsenal this summer

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel reportedly wants to sign a new midfield partner for French international N'Golo Kante this summer. The club has been linked with the likes of Declan Rice and Wilfred Ndidi this summer.

However, reports suggest that the club could sign Nigerian star Tim Akinola in the current transfer window. The 20 year old is regarded as one of the most talented young players to emerge from the Arsenal academy in recent years.

According to certain reports, Thomas Tuchel believes that Akinola has what it takes to become a world class player in the next five years. This is why the club wants to sign him from Arsenal this summer.

The 20 year old central midfielder is eligible to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria. However, some reports believe that he prefers to represent the English national team at international level.

Thomas Tuchel is also interested in signing at least one striker this summer. The club has been linked with the likes of Erling Haaland and Harry Kane.
