Chelsea have signed Denis Zakaria on loan from Juventus just before the 2022 summer transfer deadline.
Chelsea have signed Zakaria from Juventus less than a year after he arrived in Turin from Borussia Monchengladbach. He comes on loan with a reported £30m buy option. Chelsea will cover his full salary this term.
The Blues were overrun in midfield during their 2-1 loss to Southampton this week, with injuries decimating the position group for Thomas Tuchel. The addition of Zakaria could provide immediate relief at Stamford Bridge.
Tuchel has also brought in big-name signings such as Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Wesley Fofana this summer, but a poor early start to the campaign has created a sour mood in west London despite the spending.
