Chelsea centre-back set to sign new contract as soon as possible

Without much doubts, Chelsea football club will be aiming towards achieving more success under the management of Thomas Tuchel this season after a busy summer transfer window.

The West London club made some signings during the summer as they look to compete against the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League trophy this season.

And that is quite working out well for Chelsea so far as they are currently occupying the 3rd spot on the Premier League table following their disappointing 3-2 defeat away to West Ham United on Saturday noon.

And despite that, Chelsea could now be boosted with reports that experienced central defender Andreas Christensen is ready to sign a new contract at the club.

The 25-year-old Denmark International, who joined Chelsea in 2012 after leaving Brondby IF has been an important member of the first-team squad over the previous seasons.

Even though Andreas Christensen did not score any goal during the 2020/2021 season, he was still quite influential, making 27 appearances in all competitions as Chelsea lifted the UEFA Champions League trophy.

Andreas Christensen has also started the 2021/2022 season on a strong note and has scored one goal in the 15 appearances he has made in all competitions so far.

Chelsea board are believed to be impressed with his performances in the heart of defence, and are now keen on extending his contract beyond the end of the season.

It is no longer news that Andreas Christensen has less than a year left on his current contract and according to reports from popular transfer expert Fabrizio Romano via his verified Twitter page, Chelsea want him to stay past the end of the 2021/2022 season.

The reports further claimed that manager Thomas Tuchel has had a direct conversation with the centre-back and he is hopeful that Christensen will pen a new deal as soon as possible.

That said, Andreas Christensen and his Chelsea peers will now switch their attentions towards their next match against Zenit in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday as they look to bounce back to winning ways.
