Frenchman interested in Chelsea move – Agent confirms star wants to sign with Blues – Bellingham claim made
Here is a roundup of the top Chelsea fc news and gossip that we think you may have missed –
The agent of Jorginho has announced that the midfielder is keen to sign a new deal with Chelsea
Jorginho has enjoyed a superb couple of years for club and country, starring in Chelsea’s Champions League win and Italy’s European Championships triumph in 2021, with his performances earning him a Ballon d’Or nomination.
However, there has been alot of speculation that he could depart the club at the end of the season, and a move back to Italy has been mooted for the midfielder, meaning that Graham Potter would need an immediate replacement.
Juventus would be the most likely destination for the player if he did feel like leaving the club – but it is believed that he will stay at the club and Chelea have even offered him a wage of £120,000-a-week.
Now – According to Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos, the Italian midfielder wants to extend his stay at Chelsea.
“I have never met [Barcelona director] Mateu Alemany. Our priority is the renewal with Chelsea.
“The only club I have spoken to in recent weeks is Chelsea,” Santos told Relevo’s Matteo Moretto.
The midfielder has opened up and admitted that he is very happy at Stamford Bridge
Jorginho has told the 5th Stand: “I’m very happy at the moment we’re all very focused on what we need to do. I’m enjoying life here.
“I’m enjoying working with everyone and I think everybody says the same thing. It’s enjoyable to be at Chelsea.”
Rabiot claim made –
Juventus star Adrien Rabiot would be interested in a move to Chelsea – IcFootballnews’s Iomie Stanley has claimed
The Frenchman has really struggled for game time this season at Juventus and he wants more guaranteed football at this stage of his career as he is not getting any younger
Despite being one of the most gifted central midfielders in the game – Rabiot has never really adapted to Italian football like many had hoped – and Juventus are also keen to make sure that they get his massive £7M a season wages off the books
He is out of contract at the end of the season – and with Graham Potter keen to add some more quality to his side – there has been some rumours that a move by the Blueswill be made
And according to Stanley – the Frenchman would be very much interested in a move to Chelsea
What has he said?
‘Chelsea made some massive signings in the summer that are taking some time to settle in – but the squad is really impressive.
‘But they have a squad that needs to add some depth to the side – so even though the move to Italy has not worked out for Rabiot – he is still a classy player.
‘It is no secret that he has a desire to play in the Premier League – so a move to Stamford Bridge would be one that he is truly interested in – we believe – as it would give him a fresh start in the game.’
Rabiot is a brilliantly gifted midfielder that just hasnt adapted to Italian football – his career has not gone how many people had hoped
A fresh start in the Premier League may reignite his love for the game
So if Potter truly wants to add some more depth to the squad – then yes we firmly believe that he would be a very good addition to that Chelsea squad
Bellingham claim made –
Chelsea have reportedly been informed that it will take £128.5 million to sign Jude Bellingham – but he would be worth the money according to reporter Iomie Stanley
Bellingham was the subject of interest from Chelsea in the summer transfer window, but Dortmund made it clear they wouldn’t entertain any sale for one of their most impressive performers
However – it is widely believed that all the big clubs will be eyeing up a possible deal for Bellingham during the January window – rather than getting into a big time summer battle next summer
Ted Boehly has been keen to prove that Chelsea are at the front of the queue to sign the England international from Borussia Dortmund as he looks set to leave the Bundesliga giants in the coming windows
And according to the latest reports from BILD – Dortmund have now set their asking price for Bellingham.
And if you believe the words of Stanley – he will be a great signing for the Blues.
He told IcFootballnews: “The investment may be worth it given Bellingham’s class and his youthful age, with his ability to control play from the middle as well as scoring goals making him a valuable asset.
“Ngolo Kante has been brilliant for Chelsea over his time with the club – but over the last few seasons he has spent more time on the sidelines than actually playing and the Blues know that they need to look to the future.
‘And the fact he wants to come to the Premier League suggests that Chelsea will have a very good chance of getting a deal done for the man – that is for sure
He is a different type of player to Kante – but he is certainly a very special talent and he would be well worth that £128.5 million that is for sure.’
