Chelsea will be looking to add more quality to their squad before the start of the new campaign. Thomas Tuchel will be desperate to fight for silverware after failing to make a mark in the league and Europe last season.

Meanwhile, Toni Cascarino has advised the Blues to target a Manchester City forward as a replacement for Christian Pulisic. Elsewhere, the London giants are confident of securing the services of Ousmane Dembele this summer.

On that note, let’s take a look at the major Chelsea transfer news from June 13, 2022.

Toni Cascarino advises Chelsea to sign Raheem Sterling as Christian Pulisic replacement

Former Chelsea striker Toni Cascarino believes Raheem Sterling could be an upgrade on Christian Pulisic at Stamford Bridge.

The American has cut a sorry figure since joining the Blues in 2019. He has dropped down the pecking order under Thomas Tuchel and could be offloaded this summer.

The German manager is likely to invest in the attack before the start of the new season. Sterling has emerged as a possible target, with the Englishman willing to leave Manchester City if he is guaranteed regular game time.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Cascarino said Sterling would be a good fit for Tuchel’s team.

“I really thought Pulisic would be a great player for Chelsea when he signed for £50 million. I thought he would really be a top player for them. But it hasn’t really worked for him because of injury.

“One thing Raheem has got he’s very durable and touch wood he’s been free of injuries. He’s a very durable player. You can switch him on the right as well so he’s a bit more versatile as a player.”

He added:

“I could see Chelsea attempting to get that sort of wide player for Tuchel, absolutely. Why wouldn’t you? His numbers, he creates, he just stretches teams, pace always stretches teams. If you want to counter teams, Raheem is good in counter-attack play because he’s so devastating with his place.”
