Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea's owner Todd Boehly are working tirelessly to ensure that the club reaches a level competitive enough for the coming campaign.
The Blues have already secured the signatures of both Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly from Manchester City and Napoli respectively.
The West London club has also been linked to high-profile players like Jules Kounde Ake, Jonathan Clauss, and De Jong among others this summer transfer window.
After the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen to Spain, there is a need for a replacement of the duo at Stamford Bridge.
According to a report from Ojogo, it is claimed that the French defender Presnel Kimpembe is edging closer to an exit from Le Parc des Princes with Chelsea his next destination. The report adds that the Ligue 1 champions are in search of his replacement.
Kimpembe played 40 matches for Paris Saint-Germain last season in all competitions scoring 2 goals in the process.
