Chelsea urged to try to sign Spurs’ Harry Kane & break club-record to land PSG’s Kylian Mbappe

Chelsea have been told to try to sign attacking duo Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe this summer.

Graham Potter is set for a Chelsea squad overhaul in the summer transfer window with many outgoings expected, as well as several incomings to add to the current squad.

The likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mateo Kovacic, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic all have uncertain futures at Chelsea, while Mason Mount‘s future will be decided at the end of the season.

Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital have already spent in excess of £600 million on new signings and that hasn’t been reflected in their Premier League position, currently 10th, this season.

However, the spending is set to continue this summer and Chelsea have already been linked with some big names including Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham and Josko Gvardiol.

Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig is expected to arrive after a fee was agreed earlier this season between the clubs. Despite the attacking changes, Chelsea are looking to bolster the forward line even more and former Blues winger Florent Malouda has recommended two star signings – Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe.

He told DAZN Bet: ‘Chelsea should definitely join the race for Harry Kane. Kane is a world-class player who knows the Premier League, and it is an era where Chelsea need a striker with his goalscoring record and the ambition to win trophies. If Kane ever leaves Tottenham, it will be because of the lack of trophies.

‘Kane would be a great signing, but I’d be surprised if he left Tottenham for Chelsea because of the rivalry. It’s not like leaving Tottenham for Arsenal, but to leave Tottenham for Chelsea, I’d be surprised but anything is possible.

“He’s a great option for any club in the Premier League, and for Chelsea he’d be a great pick.”

Malouda added: “I’d like to see Chelsea sign Kylian Mbappe, I think we should go for top players like Mbappe. Especially when I see the amount we spend on others. It depends on his will to come to the club, but we should go for top players like him and build a team around him. That would be my dream, to build a team around him with young players around him. 

“He’s won a lot of trophies and he’s hungry for more, so this is the type of player Chelsea should look for. 

“Would Mbappe be tempted by Chelsea? Anything is possible! To tempt a player like Mbappe, it’s about building a relationship. It’s about more than just preparing a big-money offer. Players are sensitive and they know a lot about football, so clubs need to develop relationships with football and if you do that, I think you can get players like Mbappe.”

Chelsea signing either of Kane or Mbappe this summer is extremely unlikely given their league position and not being likely to be playing Champions League football next season. Despite Kane’s future being uncertain in north London, the England international is likely to snub any rival of Spurs, giving Manchester United the edge.
