According to Fichajes via The Sun, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is eyeing a January move for Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves.

The Blues have struggled to pick up wins of late, with the midfield in particular having been down to the bare bones.

N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho have all missed games through injury this season and Saul Niguez have struggled to make an impact.

The report claims Tuchel has lost faith in Saul Niguez and wants the Blues to sign Neves in January to help strengthen his midfield.

Tuchel believes that Ruben Neves would provide a better alternative to his current back-ups.

Wolves would reportedly demand around £38million for Neves, who has two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract.
