Chelsea are set to make the first two signings of the Todd Boehly era as Jules Kounde is set to move from Stamford Bridge, while reports continue to claim Ousmane Dembele is set to leave Barcelona as a free agent to join the Blues.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have remained quiet so far this transfer window, only completing a takeover in May following sanctions imposed on Roman Abramovich by the British government amid the war in Ukraine.

And they have actually downsized their squad, with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leaving the club on free transfers in the summer.

However, they look set to get into action in the near future, with Goal.com reporting that Jules Kounde remains a ‘primary target’ despite his recent injury, which shouldn’t be too serious.

“Kounde remains Chelsea’s primary target and it is believed that they will endeavor to complete the deal as soon as they receive information that the minor surgery has been a success,” they claim.

“It will leave the Blues in a position to complete the deal by early July at the latest, which will give him a chance to make it into the pre-season squad,” he added.

Meanwhile, rumors that Ousmane Dembele will end his career at Barcelona in favor of a switch to Chelsea persist, with Spanish outlet Cadena Ser claiming he has rejected another offer to stay at Camp Nou this summer. .

With that expected to be resolved by early July one way or another, the next fortnight could see the Blues make their first two major signings from Todd Boehly’s regime.
