Chelsea are reportedly preparing to open contract talks with, N’Golo Kante Jorginho, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen in the near future.

Central defenders Christensen and Rudiger have been important players for the Blues since his arrival as head coach, however, the pair are both out of contract next June.

Midfield pair Kante and Jorginho, meanwhile, will both see their current contract expire in June 2023.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the West London giants have meetings scheduled to discuss contract extensions with all four players, who are regarded as a vital part of the club’s plans moving forward.

Jorginho had been rumoured with a move away from the West London club before Tuchel’s arrival, however, the 29-year-old has now become a key player for the European Cup winners.

Kante, meanwhile, has now played 220 games for the Blues in all competitions, and he was again a leading figure for the team last season, making 48 outings.

The London giants will be looking to make it three straight wins at the start of the 2021-22 Premier League campaign when they travel to Liverpool on Saturday.
