Chelsea tipped to target four players if Zidane takes over

Zinedine Zidane remains in line to take over as Chelsea boss, according to The Sun.

Chelsea appealing against a transfer ban imposed by FIFA means the club could still sign players this summer while the appeal is heard.

And The Sun say Zidane is keen to take over as Blues boss as a replacement for the under-pressure Maurizio Sarri.

The former Real Madrid boss reportedly wants to spend £200m on four players in order to revamp Chelsea’s squad.

Mauro Icardi

There has been speculation about the Argentine’s future at Inter Milan, where he has been axed as captain. He is thought to be keen to secure a move to the Premier League and reports in Italy say Chelsea have already made contact with Inter to discuss his availability.


Played under Zidane at Real and has been repeatedly linked with a move to Chelsea in the last year or so. Perhaps this summer he will finally make the switch to Stamford Bridge.

Kalidou Koulibaly

Another player repeatedly linked with Chelsea, the defender has been tipped to leave Napoli- where he previously played under Sarri. Improving Chelsea’s defence should certainly be a priority this summer.

Alex Telles

The Brazilian full-back has caught the eye with his performances for Porto and would apparently also be among Zidane’s targets if the Frenchman takes over that the Bridge.
