Chelsea are considering reviving their interest in Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos, whilst they remain committed to signing Borussia Dortmund pair Jude Bellingham and Erling Haaland next summer, according to reports.
It is believed Marquinhos has been a target for the Blues in the past, and the arrival of Thomas Tuchel as manager has prompted the club to reignite a move for a player that the German knows well.
At the end of last week, reports emerged of the club’s interest in both Bellingham and Haaland, and the prospect of a triple swoop has got many fans on Twitter excited:
Please Marquinhos, on my knees🤲🏾

Undoubtedly signing the trio will be a costly outlay, and it remains to be seen whether PSG or Dortmund would be open to selling the players. A move for Marquinhos will probably be the toughest to pull off, considering the 26-year-old is captain at his current club, but it will be hoped that Tuchel and former teammate Thiago Silva could play their part in persuading him to come to Stamford Bridge.
In terms of Bellingham and Haaland, Chelsea will face competition for their signatures with the latter, in particular, thought to be on Manchester City and Manchester United’s radar.
