Chelsea have spent over €1 billion since Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital arrived in 2022, and their ludicrous investment shows no signs of slowing down.

The Blues remain determined to scoop up the best youngsters in world football and they are set for another busy summer of transfer activity.

While a large proportion of their recent recruitment has focused on the South American market, Chelsea will be paying close attention to the 2024 European Championship – a tournament that will feature a number of their summer transfer targets.

Below, FootballTransfers runs through five Chelsea targets to watch at Euro 2024.

Nico Williams (Spain)

Nico Williams is regarded as one of the biggest talents in European football and a move to the Premier League has been touted as a possibility for several months.

The Spain international renewed his Athletic Club contract in late 2023, but Arsenal and Chelsea are both interested and if either team lodge a suitable offer, he could potentially leave LaLiga.

He may not start for Spain, due to the plethora of attacking options at Luis de la Fuente’s disposal, but Williams will play a key role at Euro 2024, even if he’s an impact substitute.

Dani Olmo (Spain)

Williams’ Spain team-mate Dani Olmo is another player being watched by Chelsea, with the west London club interested in signing the RB Leipzig midfielder as a possible replacement for Conor Gallagher, as exclusively revealed by FootballTransfers.

Almost every elite club in Europe is monitoring Olmo, however, meaning the Blues may find it difficult to complete a transfer.

But, if he performs well at Euro 2024, a summer move is certainly on the cards.

Georgiy Sudakov (Ukraine)

Chelsea are long-term admirers of Ukraine star Georgiy Sudakov and Mykhailo Mudryk has previously stated he would love the Blues to sign his international team-mate.

Sudakov will play a key role for Ukraine at Euro 2024, but Chelsea will likely face competition from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur for the €70m-rated attacking midfielder.

Benjamin Sesko (Slovenia)

Benjamin Sesko is one of the most sought-after players in world football and Chelsea will be keeping a keen eye on performances for Slovenia at Euro 2024.

The RB Leipzig star scored 18 goals during his debut season in Germany, and he is being pursued by both Arsenal and Chelsea ahead of the summer window.

The Blues are interested in agreeing a deal for Sesko and a strong showing in Germany could help seal a big-money summer move.

Milos Kerkez (Hungary)

Milos Kerkez is one of Chelsea’s current left-back targets following his debut campaign at Bournemouth.

The Hungary international will be key to his nation’s hopes at Euro 2024 and a strong tournament could encourage Chelsea to sign him ahead of the 2024-25 campaign.

Left-back is a real area of concern for the Blues and Kerkez could become a priority target if he impresses this summer.
