Chelsea linked with Dest and Kimpembe

Chelsea are reported to hold interest in both full-back Sergino Dest and central defender Presnal Kimpembe.

The Sun, citing L’Equipe, are reporting that Blues boss Thomas Tuchel would like PSG defender Kimpembe to replace Antonio Rudiger, who looks set to leave the club on a free transfer this summer.

Tuchel managed the 26-year-old, who it is suggested would be keen on a move elsewhere, during his two years at the French club.

Kimpembe has won 15 trophies during his time with PSG, including four Ligue 1 titles, having come through the club’s youth system.

And it is claimed that a “substantial offer” in January or this summer could be enough to lure the France international and former World Cup winner away from his current club.

Meanwhile, the Daily Express are reporting that Chelsea are also lining up a £30m move for Barcelona full-back Dest (pictured abive).

The report suggests that Tuchel is keen to add the 21-year-old to his squad because of Ben Chilwell’s long-term injury.

Dest has played 16 times for the Spanish giants this season – assisting on three occasions.

The Express also claim that Bayern Munich are interested in the USA international, and that Barca are looking at Blues stalwart Cesar Azpilicueta – who is set to become a free agent in the summer.
