Goal (via the Express) claims that the Chelsea boss is keen to see a player come in to provide some balance for Fikayo Tomori, who alongside Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen is right-footed. One of the names mentioned is Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake, who left Stamford Bridge for the Cherries in 2017.
