Chelsea duo Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger are yet to extend their Chelsea contracts which expires at the end of the season.

The Blues have reportedly identified replacements for Rudiger and Christensen should they decide not to renew their Chelsea contracts.

According to Eurosport via Daily Mail, Chelsea are considering moves for Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde and Juventus star Matthijs de Ligt and a move for Villarreal’s Pau Torres has also been discussed.

Chelsea held a strong interest in Sevilla star Kounde last year, though the Blues failed to meet the Spanish club’s £67million asking price before September’s transfer deadline.

Juventus are reportedly ready to listen to offers for De Ligt as they want his £280,000-a-week salary off their wage bill.
