Leonardo Bonucci and Virgil van Dijk are the top two defensive targets to have been linked with Chelsea this summer, although it’s yet to be seen if anything tangible will materialise from the move, with Bonucci seeming the more likely, according to reports.

Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos might not be high on the priority list for Chelsea’s summer spending plans, but the Blues are said to be looking at the 29-year-old, in case the major targets aren’t eventually signed.

The Greece international is believed want to leave the Bundesliga side this summer after playing 41 times for the German club last campaign, and Chelsea are said to be monitoring the situation.
