Chelsea boss Tuchel makes De Ligt priority amid Juventus contract uncertainty

Chelsea are frontrunners to sign Juventus defender Matthijs De Ligt, reports have claimed.

While Juve don't want to lose the Dutchman, new contract talks are making his situation precarious.

Calciomercato reports that the Italian giants want to reduce De Ligt's wage while tying him down to a longer-term contract.

The Blues are currently monitoring the situation.

The German desperately wants to bolster his defensive stocks after losing Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen to free agency.
