Despite spending upwards of 200 million pounds this summer, Chelsea have been heavily linked with various moves in the transfer market for next season.
Skriniar was linked with a move to the Premier League last season with a potential transfer to Tottenham Hotspur on the cards, but as per FC Inter News, Chelsea are interested in the Slovakian defender.
Thomas Tuchel was reportedly interested in bringing Skriniar to Paris Saint Germain during his time with the French giants and is now looking to bolster the Chelsea defense.
However, the Blues could face stiff competition from Manchester United, who have also expressed interest in the centre-back as per FC Inter News, and could rival Chelsea for the signature of Skriniar that could cost upwards of 50 million euros.
Thomas Tuchel has been complimentary of the group of players at his disposal at Chelsea and in a recent press-conference, the German claimed that the Blues could bridge the gap to league leaders Manchester City next season.
At the time of writing, Manchester City are 21 points ahead of Chelsea at the top of the Premier League having played one more game, and are 14 points ahead of second-placed Manchester United.
Tuchel, however, is certain that his team will challenge from the start of next season for all competitions they take part in, including the Premier League, having not won a title in four years. This is the longest period without domestic success under current owner Roman Abramovich.
