Onana and Tagliafico boosts
Erik ten Hag has boosted Chelsea’s hopes of signing Nicolas Tagliafico and Andre Onana by suggesting the pair could leave Ajax this summer.
The blues have already raided the Dutch giants this year, with Ziyech set to arrive at Stamford Bridge soon.
And Onana and Tagliafico could well join them, with ten Hag confirming arrangements have been made should they wish to move elsewhere.
“Agreements have been made with Andre Onana, Donny van de Beek and Nicolas Tagliafico, but it remains to be seen whether the market is indeed breaking loose,” Ten Hag told Het Parool.
Blues join Upamecano race
Chelsea have joined Arsenal and AC Milan in the race to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, according to reports.
Upamecano has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium this summer, and has also drawn interest from the likes of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Tottenham.
But Frank Lampard’s side have reportedly now joined the race as they look to beat their London rivals to the defender’s signature.
Upamecano’s contract at Leipzig is set to expire next summer, with clubs keeping a watchful eye on things in Germany.
