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

Willem Gallas has claimed that Chelsea will sign a world class striker in the summer transfer window to replace Nicolas Jackson.

Jackson was the big signing for the Blues last season as they wanted to sign a striker that had the ability to score goals on a weekly basis, and Jackson impressed last season.

However – the forward has not been as impressive as many would have liked and there has been alot of speculation that a new striker will need to get signed in order to replace Jackson.

And speaking to Lord Ping Gallas said that Nicolas Jackson has demonstrated that he can’t be trusted to lead the line. He suspects that the club’s sporting directors Paul Winstanley and Lawrence Stewart have already decided to sign a replacement:

“I really wanted to give Nicolas Jackson the chance to prove that he had the ability to be Chelsea’s main striker and lead the line next season. This is his first year in the Premier League and he is a young player, but for him to prove that he is good enough to be the main striker at Chelsea, he needs to score a minimum of 15-20 goals. I said that at the start of the season.”

“His performances haven’t been good enough for the club to trust him with being the main striker at Chelsea next season. When you have the opportunity to play in almost every game, you have to take it. You have to score more goals.”

“If you’re the owner or the Sporting Director of Chelsea, and you see your striker miss three big chances – chances that he should have scored – in the FA Cup semi-final, then your first priority is going to be signing a world-class striker in the summer.

‘Next season, I’m sure that Chelsea will bring in one world-class striker. For me, Jackson can’t complain about losing his place in the team. He has had so many chances to stake his claim (as the club’s main striker).

‘He has had his opportunity, and he hasn’t grasped it.”

Maignon is a world class goalkeeper and a star that would be loved by CHELSEA fans  – if the reports are true and the Blues are keen on the player then they should definitely get a deal done for the man.

He is a couple of steps up from the quality that Chelsea already have at the club.

CHELSEA HOLD ARAUJO TALKS – 

Chelsea are one of the clubs that have reportedly held talks with Barcelona star Ronald Araujo over a summer move, according to journalist Graeme Bailey.

Araujo has been a player that has been linked with a move to the Premier League for the last few seasons and he could once again be on the transfer market if Barcelona make a decision on his future.

While the centre-back has been linked with a move away – the 25-year-old has repeatedly stressed his desire to stay at the Catalan outfit.

Bailey has reported on TBR Football that Barcelona are in talks to extend the defender’s contract as they are not keen to let him depart the club at the end of the season.

However, the journalist states that several people in Barcelona’s hierarchy believe selling the Uruguayan would be the right decision for the club to bring in some funds to help the clubs financial issues.

But Bailey does also claim that CHELSEA among those and they have already held talks with intermediaries to sign the South American.

It is understood the defender, whose contract expires in 2026, has a €1 billion (£855.6m/$1.1b) release clause

Several top European clubs including Bayern Munich and Manchester United are also keen on signing the Uruguay international.

He said earlier in the season: “My future depends on the club. Everyone knows I’m very happy here at Barca. And I’m very grateful to (manager) Xavi. We are very happy with the qualification, we played a great game at home.

‘The support of our fans was very key from the first minute.”

If Barcelona make the decision to sell the defender in the Summer window – he would be a brilliant addition to that CHELSEA side – especially with all the rumours linking Thiago Silva with a move back to his homeland.

But it will be interesting to see how this all plays out – and if Barcelona do decide to sell Araujo – Chelsea should make a move to try and get a deal done

CHELSEA MAKE MAIGNON OFFER – 

Chelsea have already put forward an offer for AC Milan shot-stopper Mike Maignan

CHELSEA made some big signings last summer that they believed would help the club challenge for a Champions League spot and maybe add some silverware to the cabinet.

One arrival that was made was that of Robert Sanchez – who was no longer wanted at Brighton and was quickly signed up by the Blues as they were desperate to add a new stopper to the side.

He has been a massive part of that Chelsea side this season – but he is not seen as a man that is good enough to play for one of the big Premier League clubs and has really struggled to impress.

That has led to alot of speculation in the media that Chelsea will once again delve into that transfer kitty and add a new goalkeeper to the side, and Maignon is a man that has been linked with a move to London for a while.

Maignon has made 42 appearances for Milan this season and has kept 15 clean sheets and has firmly established himself as one of the best goalkeepers on Seria A and maybe even Europe.

And it has been claimed that Chelsea are dreaming of signing Mike Maignon in the summer transfer window, according to Fichajes and have already put through an offer to bring him to the Premier League.

However – it will be very hard for Chelsea to get a transfer deal done as Milan have no intention of letting the big man leave at the end of the season.
