£85m star tells board he wants Blues move – £300k-a-week will be great signing for Chelsea – Neto chance given
Fofana tells board he wants Chelsea move – Auba will be great signing – Chelsea get Neto chance in Chelsea roundup –
It has been claimed that Chelsea have been informed that they may able to sign Wolves star Pedro Neto this summer
Thomas Tuchel has been able to spend some serious money this transfer window on signings that have already made a huge impact at Stamford Bridge – and his side now look like real top four contenders
However – that will not stop him from trying to get a few more players to the club by the end of the transfer window – and now Neto is on the shopping list of the German
Neto is one of the top young talents in the Premier League and a player that all the big clubs were ready to make a move for – before he picked up that serious injury that kept him out for most of last season
However – he is almost back to his best and has looked very good in pre-season and the start of the new season – so much so – that Thomas Tuchel is reportedly ready to splash £50 million and try to conclude a transfer deal
Now – According to 90MIN – The player or his representatives appears to be open to an exit from Wolves and have sounded out all the big clubs about a possible transfer deal
Neto is Premier League proven – is a brilliant talent and is definitely worth that £50 million price tag – so he would be a great signing for Chelsea if they manage to get a deal done
He would bring something different to that side – and that is what Thomas Tuchel wants – so if there is a chance to get the man – the ChelseaFC board should make sure that it gets done
He would be a brilliant signing for the club
Fofana wants move –
Leicester star Wesley Fofana has pleaded with his club to let him join Chelsea after he reportedly agreed personal terms with the Blues
Raheem Sterling, Marc Cucurella, Gabriel and Kalidou Koulibaly are the only three big-named players that has arrived this summer – although there has also been a couple of signings for the future too
Thomas Tuchel knows that he needs to add a couple more defenders to the side over the next few weeks – with reports that the German wants to find a long-term replacement for the aging Thiago Silva
And there are still many rumours in the media that ChelseaFC are very interested in a deal for Fofana
Leicester have set an asking price of a fee in the region of £80m to £85m – as they do not want to lose the player this summer – but that has not stopped Chelsea from making their moves for the player
And now the centre-back has agreed personal terms ahead of a move, so it’s all ready to go if the Blues can splash to cash.
That’s according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who tweeted: “Fofana has agreed personal terms with Chelsea, so the contract would be ready in case the two clubs find an agreement.”
The Foxes have turned down two bids from the Blues so far in the summer transfer window.
We are now saying that Fofana has a bright future in the game – we are not saying that he is a very talented lad – all we are saying is that is not worth £85 million and will not be for a few seasons
And if he has actually agreed a contract worth £200K-a-week – that is alot of money to pay such a young man that has not done much in the game
We know that ChelseaFC want him – but at the end of the day – he is not worth the money that is being reported about
Auba will be great signing –
Barcelona Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be a great signing for Chelsea – writes Shaun Wright-Phillips
Timo Werner had been at the club for the last two seasons – has netted 23 goals for the club – has won the UEFA Champions League, Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup in that time
But has not made the impact that many had hoped for – and after a few days of rumours – he has headed back to the Bundesliga after Chelsea accepted that he wants to leave – and he signed with former club RB Leipzig
That has led to speculation linking them with Gabonese international Aubameyang and Wright-Phillips believes the 33-year-old would be a good signing for ChelseaFC to make.
Speaking exclusively to SunSport courtesy of bet365 on whether Aubameyang is the right choice, Wright-Phillips said: “Do you know what, I didn’t think so at the start.
“But after watching them play at the [Spurs] game and the way Tuchel wants his team to play and after having conversations with [Gianfranco] Zola and [Glenn] Hoddle, it became clearer the reasons why Tuchel wants him.
“Aubameyang could definitely suit them, especially if he joins and scores goals.
“His mobility, the way he stays out on the left, never dropping too deep could suit Chelsea and can be someone they need.
“But I’m strong believer if you have a young talent there, why not put them in and give them a run of games.
“But I doubt that will happen until the transfer window shuts and they don’t get anyone in.”
He is scoring goals over at Barca – in the Spanish League – against teams that are not at the level of the Premier League
There is a reason why Arsenal let their biggest player depart the club – and that was because he was not able to produce the goods in the Premier League
