Chelsea have been linked to a wide variety of players and it looks like the blues are facing a busy summer.
Thomas Tuchel plans to overhaul the squad and is expected to hire some reinforcements to reinforce his authority in the Premier League. The German could also have the deadwood dumped before the start of the new season.
A striker remains Tuchel’s top priority this summer. But the Blues are also aiming to forge a redesigned defense for the next season that could leave some of their current staff members.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the top transfer news from Chelsea on June 11, 2021.
Chelsea targets Harry Kane
Chelsea made Harry Kane their main target this summer, according to Spurs Web of Gianluca Di Marzio.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker, who has expressed a desire to leave the club in search of trophies, is also wanted by Manchester City. Kane, who won both the Premier League Golden Shoe and the Premier League Playmaker Award last season, is one of the most feared strikers in the game.
Harry Kane should seal a transfer to Chelsea this summer and not worry about what Tottenham fans think, according to William Gallas. Gallas believes Kane played brilliantly at 4 Spurs but should act now and follow his example by joining a rival club to try and win trophies. pic.twitter.com/6y0vUuF4zd

The blues have focused on the Englishman as club owner Roman Abramovich prefers Kane Erling Haaland.
City tested Tottenham’s resolve by offering Aymeric Laporte and Gabriel Jesus as part of their offer for Kane, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has refused to give in. Kane could cost Chelsea more than £ 150m so it remains to be seen whether Abramovich would approve of such a massive offer for the player.
