With Chelsea’s need for a centre back laid bare in Wednesday’s 3-2 defeat at West Ham, hopefully the team will be looking for some defensive reinforcements in addition to all the marquee names rumored in attack. Declan Rice was the first name mentioned along those lines, and more names are surely expected to follow suit.

According to the Daily Mail, one other option could be Pau Torres, who plies his trade with Villarreal, where he has a £45m release clause. The 23-year-old has been really impressive this season in La Liga, and good performances always garner interest.
