Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is looking to overhaul his defence in the ongoing window, having seen the likes of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leave the club this summer.


Chelsea have signed Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella and are working hard to snare away Wesley Fofana from Leicester City.



Bayern Munich star Pavard has been touted as another defensive addition to Chelsea’s ranks in the ongoing window and it has been claimed that he is open to joining them.


Pavard reportedly wants to play at centre-back more this season, while Bayern Munich primarily see him as a right-back and want him to continue in that position, which has added to the transfer chatter surrounding his future.



But according to German magazine Kicker, the Bavarians are not planning to let Pavard leave the club in the ongoing window.


Bayern Munich do not want to sell Pavard this summer, especially since he has managed to impress on the pitch in recent outings.



It remains to be seen whether Chelsea will turn attention to any alternative targets should they end their pursuit of the World Cup winner.
