Granovskaia delighted over Silva deal, Chelsea to make Digne offer and Dest makes transfer decision in Chelsea roundup…

Chelsea are set for disappointment in their pursuit of Sergino Dest, with the right-back reportedly determined to fight for his future at Barcelona.

The start of the New Year in football signifies the opening of the transfer window and after the past month of struggle for Chelsea, it might be a bit busier than anticipated for Tuchel

The German boss said himself at the start of the month that he was not planning a busy transfer window, but confirmation that Ben Chilwell needs surgery, and will be out until the new year means that he needs to add to that back-line.

There has been a number of players linked with a transfer move to the Bridge, and the latest name to to linked is that of Dest.

The right-sided defender, that can operate on the left, has become a reported target of the Blues as the board know Barcelona need funds in order to buy the quality of player Xavi needs to get the club back to the top of the game.

He is not the big time signing that most fans would like, but with Chilwell coming back in the summer, he is just needed as a short-term solution.

However, However, according to Catalan publication Sport, Dest is not even contemplating a January move as he is convinced he can succeed and become a key player in the second half of the campaign under newly-appointed head coach Xavi.

It’s claimed the Dutch-born American remains fully focussed on overcoming Covid-19 – after testing positive for the virus prior to Barca’s clash with Mallorca – and is intent on putting his persistent back problems behind him.

Losing Chilwell for the rest of the season is a massive blow to this Chelsea squad and Tuchel will know that he will need to make the right transfer calls, or it could scupper his season.

Dest is a high-quality defender that has the versatility to be a real asset to this Chelsea squad, so it is a shame to see that he wants to stay put…for now

Chelse are to submit an offer for Everton star Lucas Digne in the coming days, according to reports

Despite the fact last month Thomas Tuchel admitted that Chelsea would not be doing alot of transfer business during the course of January, a number of injuries has meant that the club will have to delve into that transfer kitty.

Ben Chilwell, the number one left-back at Chelsea. is out for the rest of the season after having surgery on his knee and with only Marcos Alonso left in the squad, a move for Digne has been mooted.

Regarded as one of the finest in the Premier League, Digne has reportedly fallen out of favour with current boss Rafa Benitez and Everton are reportedly willing to let him leave the club before the 31st January

Now IcFootballnews has learned that Chelsea will be submitting an offer later this week to get Digne on loan until the end of the season, with the opportunity to secure a more permanent deal in the summer

Everton are willing to let the player leave knowing they have already signed his immediate replacement, so are willing to let him make the move to London.

It has been a massive shock to see that Digne has fallen down the pecking order with Everton and fans will be sad to see him leave the club this month. But if Chelsea do manage to get a transfer deal done, he would be a solid addition

He is an upgrade on Marcos Alonso and will give Chilwell a great challenge when he returns, so again, for the right money, he could be a solid signing for Chelsea

So it will be interesting to see if Chelsea do make their move this week, as they need to get a deal done sooner rather than later

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia has revealed just why Chelsea decided to hand Thiago Silva a nice new contract to sign

Silva is regarded as one of the finest defenders of his generation and has proven many critics wrong who suggested that he was far too old to produce in the English top flight.

Silva has made 22 appearances so far this season, including 17 in the Premier League, and has made this Chelsea defence so much more better since he arrived at the club, and become a real fans favourite because of that.

The former AC Milan man, who has 102 caps for Brazil, admits that he did not expect to be playing for Chelsea for three seasons when he arrived in London, but now he will be staying another season after agreeing a deal.

And after confirming that a deal had been struck with the Brazilian, Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia has opened up and revealed just why the club opted to extend the stay of Silva at Stamford Bridge, rather than add a new defender to the squad at the end of the season.

She told the club website: ‘Thiago Silva’s experience, leadership and performances have been and remain very important to this squad, so we are hugely pleased to extend his contract by another year.

‘We look forward to his continued influence as we seek honours this season and next, and more of the qualities that have led to him having such a big impact for us on and off the pitch.’

We are massive fans of Silva and have been for more than 15 years now, he is really is a legendary defender that has won everything in the game. He may be getting on in years, but he is still one of the best defenders in the Premier League, so keeping him for another year is a great decision from the club
