Chelsea are seemingly wasting no time with trying to find a replacement for Antonio Rudiger this summer, despite not having any owners.
It looks like the remaining board members and recruitment team are still laying down the foundations for potential targets this summer, and the centre-back area has now become hugely pressing.
Both Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger have all but been confirmed to be leaving when their current contracts run out at Chelsea at the end of this season.
Chelsea are looking at replacement options, one of them is Matthijs De Ligt, according to a report from Tuttosport as cited by Sport Witness.
Then the second new player Chelsea have been linked with just today in a report via The Daily Mirror this time, is German defender Amos Pieper, who will become a free agent himself this summer.
Two very different options, and De Ligt would certainly be very different in price as well!
