Chelsea take aim at Benfica’s defensive midfielder

Tuchel wants to lure his former ward.

Chelsea will try to sign Benfica midfielder Julian Weigl this summer. This is reported by the Portuguese press. The head coach of the team, Thomas Tuchel, has already worked with the footballer at Borussia Dortmund.

Transfermarkt estimates the 25-year-old player at € 20 million. Last season, Weigl played 43 matches and scored one goal.

Recall that Chelsea may lose the midfielder, which Milan and Napoli claim.
