CHELSEA are reportedly targeting deals for Jude Bellingham, Declan Rice and Christopher Nkunku as Todd Boehly continues his Stamford Bridge revolution.

The American has already splashed just shy of £300million on transfers since buying the club earlier this year.

And that kind of lavish spending is set to continue following the appointment of new boss Graham Potter.

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea will look to completely revamp their midfield.

Club bosses would like N’Golo Kante to stay despite his contract being set to expire in June, but have met issues in negotiations over the length of the potential extension.

Jorginho’s deal also expires at the end of the season, with Chelsea chiefs still undecided over whether to try and keep the Italy international.

The Blues want to revamp their midfield by signing two England regulars.

Borussia Dortmund star Bellingham would reportedly favour a move to Real Madrid or Liverpool – with both sides having been working on a deal for months.

Undeterred despite being warned that his side are behind in the race, Boehly is keen on the £130m-rated 19-year-old.

Meanwhile, the Blues could finally re-sign West Ham star and former youth player Declan Rice – having been scared off by Hammers chiefs last summer.

Rice, 23, has shown few signs of being willing to extend his contract at the London Stadium – which expires in 2024 – but West Ham possess the option to trigger an extension to 2025.

Chelsea are interested in signing RB Leipzig ace Christopher Nkunku – with the French attacker having scored six goals so far this season after plundering 35 last term.

WOUNDS TO MEND

The Blues could make an unexpected change between the sticks in the near future.

Edouard Mendy has been excellent for the West Londoners since joining in 2020.

But he has recently turned down offers of a contract extension, believing he should be earning more than the £150,000 a week that his deputy Kepa Arrizabalaga pockets.

There are also concerns that Potter may require a goalkeeper more comfortable with his feet, after Mendy made high-profile gaffes against Leeds and Real Madrid.
