Juventus Demand Huge Fee Plus Timo Werner For Chelsea Target Matthijs De Ligt

Juventus are set to ask for a huge fee plus Timo Werner for Chelsea target Matthijs de Ligt, according to reports.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are beginning their preparations for the new season in the hopes of mounting a title challenge for the Premier League, something they haven’t won since 2017.

The summer window will likely see the Blues strengthen their attacking and defensive options, with a host of names being linked with moves to Stamford Bridge in the coming weeks and months.

De Ligt has emerged as a target for the club in recent days, although Chelsea could be set for a hefty deal should they choose to sign him this summer.

According to CalcioMercato, Juventus will be looking for around €70-80 million for their centre-back, as well as the inclusion of Werner in a deal.

It is thought that the Old Lady ‘appreciate the qualities’ of the German forward, who made the switch from RB Leipzig to Chelsea in 2020.

He amassed 27 goal contributions in his first campaign at the club, but struggled last season despite a decent run of form late on in the year.

While the Blues set their sights on de Ligt and could be willing to use their current player in a deal, such a fee demanded by the Serie A side is said to be too much for them to pay, and they would prefer to not spend more than €30 million.

They are already willing to listen to offers for Werner this summer, as well as Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech.

Pulisic has recently revealed his desire for more game time at Chelsea, with the American international being linked with a move to Liverpool amid the departure of Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich.

Ziyech may already be on his way out of the club this summer, with the Moroccan’s agents making contact with AC Milan over a potential move to the San Siro.

It could be a summer of change for Chelsea in the coming weeks, with Tuchel being promised up to six new signings ahead of the new campaign.

One key departure is already on the cards for the Blues as Romelu Lukaku is close to sealing his loan move to Inter Milan, heading back to the club where he won the Serie A title in 2021.

He only signed for Chelsea last summer but after a dismal campaign, he will be heading back to his former side for next season.
