Chelsea is planning a shock move for former top defender Nathan Ake, MySportDab reports.
This means the Blues may be a heading for a double Man City swoop with a strong interest in Raheem Sterling already.
The Blues have been embroiled in a series of high-profile exits of top defenders.
They have already lost Anthony Rudiger to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Chelsea coach Tuchel had admitted that the crisis of transfer of ownership had affected the dressing room.
Rudiger refused to sign a new contract with the blues and had left the Stamford Bridge on a free transfer.
The Blues also face the imminent exit of another top defender Cezar Azpilicueta.
There have been rumours linking the Spaniard to Barcelona.
Tuchel had admitted that he had spoken with Azpilicueta, trying to convince him to stay, but Azpilicueta should be allowed to decide his Chelsea future.
The exit of Azpulicueta may profoundly impact Chelsea’s defensive line-up next.
Hence, the Blues are planning a move for former defender Nathan Ake at Manchester City, Skysport News reports.
Chelsea has previously indicated a strong interest in signing Man City and England winger Raheem Sterling.
A move for Nathan Ake means the London-based club may possibly land two top players from Man City next season.
New owner Todd Boehly is currently interim sporting director after the resignation of Marina Granovskaia.
Todd Boehly is keen on bringing new players to the Blues ahead of next season.
Sterling and Nathan Ake’s deal could be Todd Boehly’s mega signing for next season.
It is still unclear whether Manchester City will assent agree to the double swoop or not.
