World class star ‘Very close’ to Chelsea move – Defender confirms he wants to be at Chelsea – Bissouma news
Dembele deal is close – Chelsea want to sign Bissouma – Colwill makes big announcement in Chelsea news of the day….
Levi Colwill has made it clear he wants to be part of the first-team squad at Chelsea next season – amid speculation that Arsenal are keen
The 19-year-old has enjoyed an excellent campaign on loan with Huddersfield, making 30 appearances in the Championship – with his performances earning some high prise from big clubs
Colwill has been linked with clubs such as Arsenal and Leicester should Chelsea decide to cash in on another young star in the coming window – especially as they may need funds to sign their own transfer targets.
However – with the fact that Chelsea may be struggling for defenders – The academy graduate has admitted that he is keen to try and make the grade at his parent club, but he has also underlined the need to think about his career should he not get the game time he needs
‘For me, playing for Chelsea will always be the main aim right now because it’s my club,’ he explained.
‘But if that doesn’t happen, well then I have to find other ways to progress and become the player I want to be.’
‘There’s too much respect for me to close the door,’ said Colwill of a potential return to the Terriers.
‘We need to get promotion first, which is the only thing I’m thinking of right now.
‘I’m not planning for next year, all I can focus on right now is Wembley on Sunday and then the internationals after that.
‘After when I’ve finished all of that, well that’s when I’ll start thinking about that.’
This is the perfect time for the lad to test himself at Chelsea – as the Blues are losing a number of first team stars over the next couple of weeks
He may need alot more developing – but learning from Thiago Silva and working under Tuchel – he could develop into a very impressive defender
Bissouma wanted –
It has been claimed that Chelsea are looking at possibly signing Yves Bissouma after reportedly deciding to let Jorginho leave the club
Jorginho has enjoyed a superb couple of years for club and country, starring in Chelsea’s Champions League win and Italy’s European Championships triumph in 2021, with his performances earning him a Ballon d’Or nomination.
However, there has been alot of speculation that he could depart the club at the end of the season, and a move back to Italy has been mooted for the midfielder, meaning that Thomas Tuchel would need an immediate replacement.
And it has been claimed that Chelsea have decided that they will not hand Jorginho that new contract, with his current deal running out at the end of 2023, and would rather sell him this transfer window, then let him leave for nothing.
And that has led to constant reports in the media which have suggested that Chelsea are very much interested in a possible deal for the impressive Bissouma
Recent reports have claimed that despite the fact Brighton want to keep hold of the midfielder – they cannot stop him from leaving if he wants to go and will accept a fee of around £30M in the window
Now IcFootballnews has learned that Chelsea will open talks with Bissouma about a move to Stamford Bridge once the takeover of the club is announced – and Jorginho has left the club
Jorginho has been a big part of the club – but it has been claimed that Chelsea believe he no longer wants to be at the club and will allow him to return to Italian football
Bissouma is gifted in a technical sense, but it’s his positional awareness and tenacity that truly elevates him to the status of one of the best in the country right now. He is a tidy passer of the ball that has the ability to run box-to-box
Jorginho is loved by many Chelsea fans, but he is coming to that stage of his career where he will want money more than success, and that could be a problem for the club
So the news that they have decided to let him leave means that players like Bissouma could step up and make a real name for themselves for one of the big clubs
He is ready for that next stage of his career and he may offer more than what Jorginho currently gives Chelsea
Dembele deal close –
Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele is reportedly ‘close’ to agreeing a move to Chelsea – and he could be the first signing of the Todd Boehly era.
The France forward, 24, has failed to agree a new contract at the Nou Camp, with his current deal set to expire this summer, and that has led to alot of speculation that he could come to the Premier League
Chelsea were very much interested in getting some kind of transfer deal done, especially after the Spanish club told him he could leave in the January transfer window after failing to agree that new contract.
There are a number of other clubs linked – and he could even stay at Barcelona – but as Dembele’s contract enters its last few weeks – it has now been claimed on Mundo Deportivo that he is close to an agreement with Chelsea
The report adds that Chelsea are quietly confident that the deal will go through even though Barcelona are hoping that he chances his mind and stays put this summer
His agent Moussa Sissoko recently admitted that the future of Dembele is still up in the air: “Ousmane’s future remains open and we are not going to enter into endless speculation,” he told GOAL.
“When the time is right, Ousmane will take the best option. We are and have always been very respectful of all the clubs and we will continue in the same way as long as the process continues.
When the time is right to make a decision, Ousmane will consider what is the best option for his future.”
There has been so much speculation about the future of Dembele and honestly – we can see just why Chelsea are keen
On his day – he can be one of the most creative players in La Liga. But our worry is that the Premier League is too physical for the player – we mean he has struggled to stay fit in the Spanish League
But lets see if this report is true
