With several defenders already losing this window, Thomas Tuchel will need to bolster his defense ahead of the new season.
Kalidou Koulibaly has already arrived at Stamford Bridge, and Conde could be next.
Koulibaly, Conde and Thiago Silva combined to form an impressive defensive trio and gave Chelsea an excellent opportunity to push Manchester City and Liverpool to the Premier League title.
If Chelsea can secure the inclusion of Conde, in addition to the signings they have already made, it would be an interesting race between the top four.
The likes of Tottenham and Arsenal have been boosted too, so it’s shaping up to be one of the most high-quality seasons we’ve had in a long time.
