Chelsea should sign £100m winger, Giroud sends Lampard message, Chelsea to wrap up defender deal, and world class striker perfect for Lampard
Here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea news from icfootballnews
Chelsea should make a move to try and sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho next summer, with reports the Germans may consider selling the winger.
Now we all know that Chelsea were unable to go out and splash the cash on some big named players as they were banned from acquiring any players for at least two transfer windows, and although they did appeal the ban, they only managed to tie down a permanent deal for Mateo Kovacic and bring in Christian Pulisic.
News boss Frank Lampard has a massive job on his hands trying to get the best out of the experienced players, while also giving the younger generation more of a chance at Stamford Bridge, as he could not improve the squad.
But with the sales of a number of first-team players, the Blues made a massive £130 million in sales this summer and that is to be reinvested into the club next summer, as Lampard will reportedly get around £200 million to spend on new players.
And we have suggested that the Chelsea boss goes out and buys a number of top-class signings, and Sancho should be high up on the shopping list.
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 Chelsea were unable to make a firm offer as they were suspended from doing any deals.
And Sancho has admitted that a return to the country of his birth is certainly not out of the question – at some point.
‘I can’t tell the future but I wouldn’t mind. La Liga I wouldn’t mind also, but we don’t know yet,’ Sancho said on the Metro website.
