Chelsea Football Club are reportedly interested in signing RB Leipzig centre-back Josko Gvardiol as a replacement of Antonio Rudiger.

According to a report, Rudiger has agreed to a four-year deal with Real Madrid. And Christensen has reportedly agreed to a verbal deal with Barcelona. 

Therefore, they will be looking to strengthen their defence by signing new centre-backs. Chelsea are desperate to reinforce their defence because Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta are also in their thirties.

Moreover, there are also reports suggesting Chelsea are interested in Sevilla centre-back Kounde. Thomas Tuchel is impressed by the Croatian international. 

Alongside Chelsea Josko Gvardiol is also a target for Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur. After joining Leipzig just last year for €18 million from Dinamo Zagreb, the 20-year-old could be on the move again if he continues to perform well.

Josko Gvardiol has also scored two and assisted three goals in 42 appearances for RB Leipzig.
