Chelsea’s primary target for the further reinforcement of midfield appears to be Kai Havertz, but as with any transfer operation, alternative targets must also be identified, especially for such an expensive proposition. 

According to L’Equipe (via Express), one such potential target is Jonathan Ikone, who currently plies his trade for LOSC Lille in Ligue 1. According to the report, Chelsea, along with Tottenham and Newcastle have inquired about the availability of the 22-year-old, although no serious negotiations have taken place yet.
