Chelsea are ready to spend big this summer following their Champions League final triumph over Manchester City in order to force a Premier League title challenge.
The latest rumours at Stamford Bridge concern one of the young stars of Euro 2020, a Serie A winner and also an outgoing link for Germany forward Timo Werner.
While Thomas Tuchel has proved that their current squad are capable of winning on the biggest stage, he might be eyeing some extra bodies to help across a full league campaign.
Daily Star Sport have rounded up three of the latest updates, one of which concerns Sweden forward Alexander Isak and his buy-out clause at Real Sociedad.
Alexander Isak considered
Chelsea are said to be considering a summer move for Sweden forward Alexander Isak as Tuchel eyes a new striker to help fire them to Premier League glory.
The 21-year-old had a sensational season in Spain with Real Sociedad, scoring 17 goals across 34 La Liga appearances and earning a starting spot at Euro 2020.
Despite failing to score, Isak has shown his quality during the opening two fixtures, and the Metro report the Chelsea interest and detail his £60m buy-out clause.
Achraf Hakimi alternative
Will Chelsea challenge for the Premier League title this season? Let us know in the comments.
Italy international Giovanni Di Lorenz could end up joining Chelsea this summer should they fail in their pursuit to sign Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan.
According to Defensa Central, 22-year-old fullback Hakimi remains their priority, with Di Lorenz next in line following two solid seasons with Napoli in Serie A.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Morocco star Hakimi could come to Stamford Bridge for £43million plus Emerson Palmieri, with Davide Zappacosta, Mateo Kovacic and Tammy Abraham also options.
Timo Werner decision
Despite his poor form in front of goal since joining Chelsea from RB Leipzig, the overall performances of the Germany forward were said to have caught the interest of Real Madrid.
However, it appears as though Tuchel would not be pleased if the club let him leave, and is expecting his confidence to grow after their Champions League triumph.
The Sun report that Tuchel is not interested in the sale, after Carlo Ancelotti identified Werner as a potential target during the summer window.
