The West Londoners will look to resume business as usual today being Monday the 6th of June 2022 as Somtosport brings you the latest news and transfer update around the club.
Thomas Tuchel is keen on strengthening his squad and a summer transfer business for Chelsea will be more of the incoming than outgoing.

Chelsea Face Major Competition In Pursuit To Finalize Jules Kounde Signing (Rumor)
As Somtosport earlier on reported, the Blues have a pending contract with Sevilla Defender, Jules Kounde and will announce everything is set.
Chelsea as still very much in contention to announce Jules Kounde as certain steps are just to be followed.
In the latest Chelsea transfer news for today, Monday 6th June, 2022, several sources are claiming Barcelona have opened interest in Jules Kounde and looking to battle Chelsea heavily for the Frenchman.
Well, there is just no truth in that as the Catalans still have their financial issue choked down their throat and also players yet to be registered.
The signing of Andreas Christensen and Marcos Alonso are pending because of this financial issue and Barcelona chose to cut down players wagers and also squad size to be able to carry on with their transfer business.
Engaging in a transfer battle with a club that has every space to register a new player and also funds to complete the deal is the last thing Barcelona would want to consider.
Chelsea are still very much favorites and face no competition in landing Jules Kounde who has already reached an agreement with the club.
Ousmane Dembele Edge Closer To A Chelsea Arrival After Receiving 4-Year Offer From Blues
The Frenchman is on our list of latest Chelsea transfer news for today as he edges closer to a reunion with his former Boss, Thomas Tuchel.
It’s very clear that Ousmane Dembele returning to sparkling form just towards the end of the 2021/2022 season was just to attract to himself very good buyers.
The Frenchman has for long fallen out of place with the Barcelona board and the last thing on his mind is remaining in Spain.
Dembele wants out and Chelsea have been the side closing on the former Dortmund man despite interest from PSG which has reportedly dropped massively.
The Blues have presented Dembele with a 4-year contract which is supposedly power-packed with a reasonable wage of around 150k to 250k per week.
Chelsea consider Dembele a very important signing this summer as they tend to provide very huge competition in their wing role after seeing likes of Christian Pulisic perform bad sometimes.
Belgium Manager, Roberto Martinez Finally Provides Injury Update For Romelu Lukaku
Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku was injured while featuring against Netherlands, following a contest with Nathan Ake.
This resulted to him leaving the pitch early and seeing his side lose from the bench.
Speaking on his injury, the Belgium Manager said; “It doesn’t look good. He twisted his ankle. We have to wait 48 hours for the MRI scan, but I would be surprised if he is still in action in the coming games. That is my feeling.”
Lukaku is still very much interested in leaving Chelsea as his lawyer will be meeting the club this week to discuss possible exit terms.
Chelsea landed the former Inter Milan man for a huge sum and won’t want him out for a little amount. They would demand huge which Inter would most likely not want to pay.
Main reason the striker is pushing to leave on loan before making his departure permanent.
Liverpool Phone In For Christian Pulisic Transfer
Pulisic is linked to a Liverpool trip in our Chelsea news for today after failing to impress much during the 2021/2022 season.
The American has received interest from Liverpool who is spearheaded by Jürgen Klopp.
Neither Chelsea nor Pulisic has yet made any reaction to this offer but it’s very much unlikely Pulisic would leave this summer.
Tuchel wants to build a large squad and not get a new squad. He has a tight budget and not an amount to go all spree with.
