Here is a roundup of the top Chelsea news and gossip that we think you guys may have missed today –

Journalist Florian Plettenberg has now claimed that Chelsea are monitoring one manager ahead of the end of the season.

Recent reports circulating within the football fraternity have stirred controversy, suggesting that a faction of Chelsea players has purportedly petitioned the club’s board to terminate the tenure of manager Mauricio Pochettino. Such claims, if validated, could potentially disrupt the stability and harmony within the club, raising questions about the underlying reasons behind such a drastic demand.

But when it comes to potential replacements, Ruben Amorim has frequently been mentioned as a potential candidate to take the role.

He is currently enjoying a very successful season yet again at Sporting Lisbon, and this has seen him come in for plenty of praise in his relatively short career in the game.

Plettenberg has stated that CHELSEA are keeping tabs on him, ahead of what looks as if it will be a huge summer when it comes to managers at the top moving on.

He said: “Rúben Amorim, he’s definitely a candidate for FC Liverpool in summer! At FC Barcelona, he is also highly regarded. Chelsea is monitoring him, should things not progress further with Pochettino in summer.

“Amorim favours a 3421 system with two attacking midfielders who move freely between the lines. Pedro Goncalves and Edwards, are essential for Amorim.

“Similar to Leverkusen and Inter Milan, there are often five players in the forward line as passing options, providing tremendous width in the attacking play (3-2-5). Been told his release clause is said to be €10m in summer.”

Pochettino is at a club that has a vision that does not bring instant success – he needs the players to take the club forward – changing a manager is not going to solve all the issues at the Blues.

Almorin is a top class coach – but he is probably heading to Liverpool


Sporting won’t sell Victor Gyokeres for less than €100m in the summer window – the likes of Chelsea have been informed.

Gyokeres has scored 36 goals in 40 games for Sporting and is one of the form attacking players in European football this term, with many reports in the medcia suggesting that he could be sold in the coming transfer window.

Europe’s elite are queueing up to prise the Sweden international away from Lisbon after his stunning start to life with Sporting, and CHELSEA are one of the clubs that are desperate to delve into that transfer kitty and add a 30 goals a season forward to that attack

Portuguese football expert Pedro Sepúlveda on Sky Sports News:

“Both Arsenal and Chelsea are going to look for a striker in the summer. Viktor Gyokeres is the best player in the Portuguese league.

“He has 36 goals in 40 games and 13 assists. These numbers are incredible all around Europe, I’m sure every team would want a 25-year-old striker with these numbers.

“Sporting won’t sell him for less than €100m. I cannot guarantee it will be an English club but I’m sure one club from Europe will pay €100m.”

The transfer window is many months away and there will be alot of rumours – but one thing is for certain – Gyokeres is a player that could add to that CHELSEA  attack – he is a real goal-machine right now.

He may be good enough for that Portuguese League – but he could really struggle to make the impact that he would like in the Premier League – it is another level.


Alfie Gilchrist has signed a new two-year deal with Chelsea, including the option of a further 12-month extension.

Gilchrist joined the Academy as an Under-11 and moved through the age groups at Cobham with his impressive performances impressing a number of coaches at the club

The defender has enjoyed a breakthrough season with his boyhood club, making 12 appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s CHELSEA side and he has now been rewarded with a new contract at the club.

‘Signing this contract at CHELSEA is a massive achievement for me and my family,’ said Gilchrist. ‘It was a no-brainer and every time I’ve signed a contract here it has felt nicer and nicer. But now I want to keep on pushing on and keep improving.’

Co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley said: ‘We are delighted to give Alfie this new contract at Chelsea.

‘It has been a pleasure to see him continue his development within the club by breaking into the first-team squad this season. We are looking forward to seeing him progress further in the years to come.’

There have been so many coaches over the past few hours reveal that they are delighted that the defender has agreed a deal with Chelsea – he really is a talented lad that could go very far in the game.

He already has his foot in the door under Mauricio Pochettino and he will now need to push on and make more of an impact – especially as Thiago Silva could be leaving the club at the end of the season – opening the door for more game time for the lad.
