Chelsea to turn attention to Kyle Walker-Peters transfer from Southampton if Marc Cucurella deal falls through

Date:

CHELSEA could reportedly turn their attention to Southampton’s Kyle Walker-Peters if other deals fall through, according to reports.

The right-back is one of a number of potential options for Chelsea as they also hold an interest in Marc Cucurella of Brighton and Denzel Dumfries of Inter Milan.

Walker-Peters, 25, began his career at Tottenham before moving to the Saints.

His excellent form last season saw him earn a call-up to the England squad for the first time.

Capable of playing on either side of the defence, he was a regular for Southampton last campaign playing 37 times.

According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the idea of bidding for him has been discussed by the Blues hierarchy.

Cucurella is also someone the club are keen on but the Seagulls reportedly don’t need to sell the Spaniard.

The left-wing back was a target for Man City but after they saw a £30million bid rejected they have decided to pursue deals for alternatives.

Another player Chelsea are interested in is Dumfries but Inter don’t want to sell the Dutchman, claims Romano.

Rumours suggest Thomas Tuchel’s side have already enquired about Dumfries and due to the Italian’s side financial situation they hope to change their minds on offloading him.

Tuchel is looking to bolster his squad ahead of the new season and provide competition for first choice full-backs Ben Chilwell and Reece James.

The West Londoners also remain in the market for a centre-back with speculation linking them with Wesley Fofana of Leicester.

Chelsea begin their Premier League campaign at Everton on Saturday.
