It is no secret that Frank Lampard is keen to improve this side with some big time signings, and reports in the media have suggested he will indeed get the £200 million it will take to sign some top-class, big-time names players in the summer, with a striker on the list
Olivier Giroud is seemingly destined to pack his bags and leave the club at the end of the season having failed to agree a move away in the January window, while Mitchy batshuayi is more of a thirds-choice striker that is only needed when the other two are injured or need to rest.
And it seems that Inter Milan striker Martinez is now on the shopping list of the Chelsea boss as SPORT have claimed that both the Blues and Manchester City have tabled an offer to the Italians for their impressive striker.
The striker moved to Milan back in 2018 and has gone onto to be their main talisman this season, netting 16-goals in just 31 appearances, and they are desperate to make sure they get the most money they can.
However, Chelsea and City will not be the only ones battling for the mans signature, as there has been reports suggesting that he is keen to make the move to La Liga in the summer and sign with Spanish giants Barcelona, who are leading the chase.
Raul Jimenez has sent the likes of Chelsea a transfer message about a possible summer move.
After recently 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, with United hot on the list of possible suitors
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 likes of Chelsea, especially after Frank Lampardfailed to sign any strikers during the January transfer window.
He is a very good player who has had a great season, and from what we are hearing, there will be a lot of top clubs trying to sign him in the summer, but despite all the interest, he could do a job at Chelsea, he could be a great partner for Tammy Abraham.
But Jimenez has opened up and poured water on a possible move to United, by claiming that he is more than happy at Wolves: “I have a contract until 2023,” the 28-year-old wrote. “It’s not that we have to qualify for the Champions League in order to stay.
“I’m good [here], happy with Wolves, doing important things – me as well as the whole team.
“We’ve been trying our best since the start of last season. We’ve qualified for the Europa League, now we’re fighting for a Champions League spot.
“And it’s the big motivation to keep growing as a player and getting into the Champions League is always a plus that satisfies you and keeps you thinking about big things.”
If Chelsea do actually come calling, it will be interesting to see if he actually turns down a move to one of the biggest clubs in the game
