If reporting has been accurate, Chelsea's latest prime transfer concern has been disclosed. And a battle against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United is expected for a prospective signing.

Will the west Londoners land Karim Adeyemi and/or Desire Doue? Or will rival EPL clubs such as Spurs or the Red Devils steal either wanted man? CFC-admired centre back Riccardo Calafiori is another name circulating. Yet the outstanding Euro 2024 defender has already seemingly been poached from Enzo Maresca's grasp by north London outfit Arsenal. What's next at Stamford Bridge?

Chelsea Football Club stars involved in Euro 2024

The Blues had approximately seven of their senior personnel playing at the Euros over the summer. For England, we have Cole Palmer along with Conor Gallagher. And the Three Lions are still happily in the tournament at present. Gareth Southgate's men reached the semi-finals on Saturday evening. They will play Holland on Wednesday for a place in the Final.

France and Spain are the other illustrious sides remaining in the international competition. They play tomorrow, Tuesday, to see who meets one of the aforementioned teams in the deciding match. Marc Cucurella is likely to be involved.

Unfortunately that is it for the Fulham Road club with regards to competing players. Now that Germany, Albania, Serbia, Ukraine and Belgium are out, Romelu Lukaku, Djordje Petrovic, Kai Havertz, Armando Broja and Mykhailo Mudryk have all probably flown home. They will be back at Cobham training ground very soon, no doubt.

According to reports, further acquisitions are on the horizon at the Bridge. These include a potential triple addition involving promising young professionals. You can get more information on stories concerning Aaron Anselmino, Caleb Wiley and Renato Veiga by clicking here.

Meanwhile the English capital outfit are continually connected with a move for Victor Osimhen. Don't worry, we are aware that these supposed ties or interest are years old at this tiring juncture. But the Nigerian is no longer referred to as CFC's priority for the offseason. Another player currently holds that title: Karim Adeyemi of Borussia Dortmund.

Nevertheless, the Napoli striker remains a viable option as the Chels' recruitment department aim to finally bag a natural-born goalscorer. Although, it is said that the club from Italy must reduce their asking price if a deal is to be done. Elsewhere, are the Blues battling for the signature of Rennes man Desire Doue as well?:

"According to The Sun, Doue is a key target for London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham, who will both push for a deal to be completed as soon as this week.

However, Manchester United are similarly said to be firmly in the mix, with the France Under-21 international also believed to be on the radars of both Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain"
