Chelsea FC have opened talks to sign wonderful midfielde,r Agent reveals talks planned, Kane told ‘now is the time’ to leave, Striker tells Lampard how much he will cost to buy

Guys here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea FC news, gossip and transfer talk from icfootballnews.com over the past 24 hours.

Fresh reports in the media have claimed Chelsea FC have begun negotiations with Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho over a summer switch.

There has been some big speculation in the media over the past few days which have suggested that Chelsea are closing in on a £77 million deal for the former Liverpool man, as he is not wanted back at Barcelona in the summer and will be sold on.

RECENT REPORTS HAVE SUGGESTED CHELSEA HAVE OPENED TALKS WITH COUTINHO, who has struggled to reach the kind of form which made him one of the best players in the game during his time with Liverpool, meaning that he will be on the transfer market during the summer window

Chelsea reportedly lead the chase, especially as there is talk that Brazilian Willian could be leaving the club, and now reports on the SUN have claimed that Chelsea are ready to capitalise on Bayern Munich’s disinterest in signing Coutinho on a permanent deal following his season-long loan move to the Allianz Arena.

The same report claims the Blues have contacted Coutinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian about signing the Brazilian midfielder from Barcelona in the summer, with speculation suggesting that a fee of around £77 million will be enough to conclude this transfer deal.

Look, If Coutinho is on the transfer market during the summer window, then Chelsea would be fools to not make a move for the man, as he is a creative genius that can win games in the blink of an eye.

Chelsea FC transfer target Achraf Hakimi’s agent says nothing is decided as the remains on-loan at Borussia Dortmund.

There have been some reports in the media suggesting that Chelsea are planning for potential new signings in this coming transfer window, as they seek to improve the side.

It will mean that Frank Lampard will be able to delve into the clubs transfer kitty and add a few players to the squad that will add some experience, and quality in the right areas of the pitch, as the defence is not the best at Stamford Bridge

That has led to alot of speculation in the media linking the Chelsea with a whole host of possible summer signings, with some of the biggest names on that shopping list of Lampard, but now it seems that he has turned his attentions to Hakimi.

The Real Madrid fullback has been linked with Chelsea this week, with some reports even suggesting that Chelsea have made contact with the Spanish giants and the players agent in a bid to try and get an early transfer deal done, despite the massive outbreak of the coronavirus.

Now they have been handed a boost by the players agent: “The contract with Real Madrid is still the one we negotiated in 2017 and that runs to June 2022,” agent Alejandro Camano told Spox.

“We’ll have to wait and see. After the coronavirus crisis is over, we’ll sit down with Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund to discuss the matter.”

**Do you have something to say about your club? Send us an article for discussion!**Chelsea target Raul Jimenez has personally revealed he will cost at least £34.5million this summer – as doesn’t have a release clause in his Wolves contract.

After recently becoming the club’s top scorer in Premier League history – netting his 23rd league goal to overtake Steven Fletcher’s 22, interest in a Premier League deal has taken another leap forward, with United hot on the list of possible suitors

Jimenez, 28, has 10 goals and six assists in the Premier League this season for Champions League hopefuls Wolves, and we believe that he could be a good buy for the Blues, especially as there has been alot of speculation about a number of players leaving the club.

He is a very good player who has had a great season, and from what we are hearing, there will be a lot of top clubs trying to sign him in the summer, but despite all the interest, he could do a job at Stamford Bridge, But Chelsea may be forced to dig deep in their pockets to try and complete a deal.

Speaking of a potential summer transfer, Jimenez revealed that he wont be sold for anything less that the £34.5 million that Wolves paid to acquire his services.

He was quoted on THE SUN: “[Wolves] bought me for €40million (£34.5m), they won’t sell me for less.

“There is no release clause, but with clubs [in England], it is different how they are managed.”

Ex-liverpool star Jamie Carragher has warned Chelsea target Harry Kane he has reached the crossroads of his career at the “worst possible time”

Regarded as one of the finest strikers in the game right now, and one of the most deadliest in the Premier League, Kane has hit the transfer headlines over the past few weeks after he came out and announced that he could leave the Spurs in the coming seasons if they fail to progress.

That has led to all sorts of rumours in the media linking him with a move to the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United Real Madrid and even PSG, as many regard him as a world class striker that is playing in a side that has limited capabilities right now.

In his TELEGRAPH column, the Sky Sports pundit said: “Harry Kane has reached the crossroads of his career at the worst time possible. In other circumstances, the Tottenham striker’s comments suggesting he would consider a move in the near future would be reasonable.

“These are far from normal times, with clubs losing money and needing to cut costs rather than plan major investments in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.

“That means if players in the highest price bracket want out of their clubs, there is less chance they will get their wish.

“Kane is in that category. A limited number of clubs can afford him, and I am not sure how many have the appetite to engage in a fractious negotiation with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy in the current climate.”

Carragher added: “Kane turns 27 in July. We have no idea when the next transfer window will open or next season start. If Kane does not leave soon, the situation gets trickier for him.

“When players hit 28, psychologically it makes a big difference to clubs. They see him as nearer 30, recognise there is no resale value and balk at high valuations.”

Kane does not want to look back at his career and say that he won nothing in the game, and that is what may happen at Spurs so if a big club come calling, even in the summer, it would not be a massive shock to see him leave the club.

He is a world class player and fans would surely not hate him for looking to achieve something?
