£100m man breaks record, Prem signing to make Chelsea happy, Abraham wanted Cavani deal, Brazilian tells Chelsea he wants to sign deal
Here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea news from icfootballnews.com
Chelsea target Jadon Sancho has set another record in the Bundesliga.
The 19-year-old England international, who left Manchester City to join the Bundesliga outfit in 2017, emerged as a top summer target for Chelsea, but Dortmund refused to sell and United were not prepared to pay such a big amount for the youngster.
The lad is a creative force and was one of the top assist players in Europe last season, and considering Chelsea are in need of adding some much needed excitement, goals and creativity on the wings, the lad is growing into their perfect signing.
And ahead of the summer transfer window, the young man is showing just why Chelsea are so keen to try and secure a deal early in the transfer window., as teenagers Erling Braut Haaland and Sancho both made Bundesliga history as Borussia Dortmund thrashed Union Berlin 5-0.
Haaland netted in the win to become the first player to score seven goals in his opening three Bundesliga games, with Sancho also getting on the scoresheet, becoming the youngest player in Bundesliga history to reach 25 goals.
Despite only signing from Red Bull Salzburg in January, Haaland is already the joint 10th top scorer in the league, while Sancho has only failed to score once in Dortmund’s last nine league games, as The England international has scored 12 goals and contributed 13 assists in 18 games this season.
Sancho is one of the best and brightest talents in the game, and he would certainly add something different to both attacks if he leaves Dortmund in the coming windows. So it would be interesting to see just who he would sign for.
Chelsea should make a move for Wolves striker and Manchester United target Raul Jimenez.
The Red Devils suffered a setback in their pursuit of a top-four finish in the Premier League on Wednesday after they lost 2-0 to Burnley, with the United side struggling to create chances.
And with the Red Devils also picking up a number of injuries to the clubs first team players, there is a need from United to spend some serious money in the January window to improve the squad in key areas of the pitch.
And that has led to shock speculation in the media suggesting that United are willing to make a move for Jimenez this transfer window, with the Wolves striker becoming one of the shock of the new Premier League season.
And after becoming the club’s top scorer in Premier League history – netting his 23rd league goal to overtake Steven Fletcher’s 22, interest in a Premier League deal has taken another leap forward, but Chelsea should make a move.
Jimenez, 28, has 10 goals and six assists in the Premier League this season for Champions League hopefuls Wolves, and we believe that he could be a good buy for the Chelsea.
Look, Chelsea do not need to add a world class striker that will take the place of Abraham, they need a forward to come in and help the young Englishman out throughout the course of the season.
As we have said, he is now one of the most deadly players in the Premier League, so if he has the opportunity to play for one of the Leagues biggest clubs, he could be one of the best strikers in Europe.
Fresh reports have claimed that Willian has told the club that he wants to stay, despite interest from Barcelona.
Look, the January transfer window has come and gone and all the speculation in the media now will be about possible arrivals in the summer transfer window, as Chelsea are already planning for possible arrivals.
But there has been speculation in the media over the past few months which have suggested that Brazilian star Willian will be leaving the club after failing to agree a big new contract with the club, with talks ongoing for months now.
His failure to sign a new deal with the club has led to speculation in the media suggesting that Barcelona are all set to come calling and offer him a big time contract to make the move to the Camp Nou.
However, the Metro website has reported that Willian is hoping to commit his future with the club and has informed Chelsea that he wants to sign a new contract before his current deal runs out in the summer.
The Brazilian maestro is one of only a handful of world class players at Chelsea and has feature in well over 300-appearances for the club, so his importance in the side is much more than just on the pitch.
Everybody knows that Chelsea have a thing about handing players big contracts once they get the wrong side of thirty, but considering this man wants to stay and Chelsea would have to spend around £60 million to land a decent replacement, he deserves a new contract.
Lampard will be looking to add to the side that he already has, which means keeping the best players at the club, and then adding to it. So if Willian is keen to stay, offer him the deal he wants and get the very best out of him that they can.
Tammy Abraham has admitted that he would have loved Chelsea to sign Edinson Cavani during the January transfer window.
CHELSEA were involved in a lot of transfer speculation and rumours during the January transfer window as there was a number of players linked with a possible move to Stamford Bridge, but despite all the rumours, Frank Lampard failed to secure any transfer deals.
Cavni was one man that was constantly linked with a transfer move to London, especially after he handed in a transfer request as he sought to make the move away from PSG after 198 goals for the French giants.
But as we said, despite all the speculation and rumours, Chelsea could simply not get a deal done for the big striker and Lampard will have to get through the rest of the season with the squad that they currently have.
Abraham has performed well under the pressure of scoring Chelsea’s goals this season following Eden Hazard’s departure, but the young England international claims he would have welcomed a move for Cavani.
‘The players we were talking about bringing in were like Cavani and other top class strikers who have been around the game for many years,’ Abraham said in the Metro
‘It would have been nice if he had come. He would have been someone I can learn off and steal his ideas to add to my own.
‘It didn’t happen though and for me it gives me that extra push and desire to claim my position and be as best as I can.’
