Chelsea announce late deal, Lampard: order Chelsea to sign £70m star, Defender opens up on shock Chelsea deal, Lampard sends Prem warning
Here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea news from icfootballnews.com
Chelsea youngster Charlie Brown managed to secure a late deadline day loan move away from the club.
Chelsea fans were fed a lot of transfer talk over the last few weeks as it seemed that Frank Lampard was going to do a whole load of business to improve the side and give the club more of a chance to get back inside the top four.
But despite all the speculation and rumours in the media, the Chelsea boss failed to get any transfer business for first team players done, and instead the Blues secured a number of deals for the academy players instead.
Now, CHELSEA have managed to secure a loan deal for the talented Brown, who has five goals in 18 appearances this season for our development squad side, as he is joining Belgian club Royale Union Saint-Gilloise. It is his first loan.
Brown joined Chelsea from Ipswich Town in the summer of 2016 and enjoyed a prolific maiden season for the Blues’ Under-18s, notching 10 goals in 20 league appearances, most of which were as a substitute. That form was rewarded with a development squad debut before the end of the campaign.
Last season Brown was topscorer across our Academy sides with 20 goals from 31 appearances. He signed a new contract in October 2018, committing him to Chelsea until the summer of 2021.
Royale Union Saint-Gilloise are based in Brussels and compete in the Belgian second division where they are currently fourth.
Frank Lampard should tell Chelsea to sign Ben Chilwell ahead of Manchester United.
After months and months of fighting their transfer ban, Frank Lampard managed to get an early Christmas Present this month after it was revealed that the ban had been lifted, and Chelsea will be able to sign players again in the January window.
Emerson Palmieri made a strong start to the campaign, but has been dealt with several injury problems and Chelsea have had to turn to Marcos Alonso, who you feel is not a particular favourite of Lampard’s.
Cesar Azpilicueta has played in that position, despite being a right-back, while Reece James has also done a job on the left, so the Blues will need to delve into their transfer kitty to try and acquire the services of a new left-back.
And as we said, Chilwell has enhanced his reputation this season with a series of impressive displays for title-chasing Leicester and is one of the best full-backs in the top flight.
However, it is believed that United are leading the chase for the Leicester defender with reports suggesting that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a massive fan of the England International and is keen to add him to the United side at the end of the season.
And after failing to improve the side during the January transfer window, Lampard should make Chilwell as a priority target and should try to get a deal done before United, especially as he has a massive £150 million transfer kitty to play with.
Tariq Lamptey has opened up on his decision to leave Chelsea during the January transfer window.
Lamptey made his senior Chelsea debut in a 2-1 win against Arsenal in the Premier League on 29 December.
A member of England’s squad at the 2019 Under-19 European Championships, he has also made two appearances in the FA Cup this season, but despite reports in the media suggesting that CHELSEA wee hoping to tie him down to a new deal, he has now agreed a three-year deal with Brighton.
And one the move, he told the Brighton website: ‘It was a really tough decision to leave as I’ve been at Chelsea since the age of seven and seen it all the way to the under-23s, and then the first team.
‘He’s the type of player they need’ ‘It was a proud moment when I made my Premier League debut, but I felt that it was the right time to start a new chapter and come to this brilliant club.
‘The manager and the club have shown great faith in bringing me here. I just hope I can repay their trust, and help the club reach their goals and objectives.
‘I’m quick, tenacious, I’ve got good skills and am good in one-v-one situations both offensively and defensively. I give everything for the team and I don’t stop smiling!
‘Because of my position, I look at people like Dani Alves for way he plays as an attacking full-back. He loves to get up and down and is someone who plays with flair and tenacity.
‘I also like [N’Golo] Kante because he’s got great work rate. Someone who I also looked up to, although he was not in the same position as me, was Ronaldinho because of his positive outlook on football.’
Frank Lampard has opened up on the clubs chances of now getting back inside the top four by the end of the season.
There was a lot of speculation and frustration in the Chelsea ranks during the January transfer window after the Blues failed to acquire any players, despite the fact that Lampard was keen to improve the side.
Asked if he is worried about other teams strengthening while CHELSEA missed out, Lampard said on the Metro: “Yes. The reality of the fact is that we’ve not done business here, for whatever reason.
“That’s the transfer window, but if I’m looking at it with my business head on and looking around us in the table, Manchester United obviously have signed a big, world-class player in my opinion.
“And the teams around us, Sheffield United have made some fantastic signings, Chris Wilder’s job is incredible because he’s had years to work with that group and now they are adding where they see that they need to.
“Tottenham have signed a few, and again, they are not far behind us.
“And not only have they signed a few but a couple of players have left, not being too crude about it, but they were coming towards the end of their contracts and weren’t happy being at the club any more.
“And that’s sometimes as important as bringing players in, that you can change the feeling of the group, if players are not willing to be there.
“So I think that’s smart business on their part, and now what remains to be seen will be seen.
“From my view – and this is not to talk ourselves down, because we’re six points clear in fourth – now we become probably the underdogs and the outsiders to some point, because teams have strengthened around us. It’s a fact.”
CHELSEA had the money to sign the players that they needed and it was a massive shock to see that Lampard was unable to acquire the players that he needed to improve the side, especially as star man Tammy Abraham is out with injury.
If they don’t get back inside the top four this season, it will not be down to Lampard, it will be down to the fact he was unable to improve the side.
