Camavinga has big dream, Lamps wants to keep Giroud, Rice wants trophies, Rudiger wants to stay at Chelsea in Chelsea roundup…
Edouardo Camavinga has admitted there is one ‘dream’ club out there he wants to join, with Chelsea now linked for the young man.
The 18-year-old, who only turned 18 earlier this month, has already played 51 times for Rennes and earned three caps for France, scoring on his second appearance for his country.
His international debut against Croatia this year made him the youngest player to appear for France in over 100 years, demonstrating the huge strides he has made at such a young age.
And the fact that he has been impressing so much early in his career, has meant that the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, PSG and Real Madrid have all shown an interest in getting a potential transfer deal done in the coming windows.
Now, amid all the speculation surrounding his future, Camavinga has come out and announced that there is a dream club out there for him, although he has not revealed just whom that would be, He was quoted on the SUN: “The great clubs make me dream, but I cannot name one in particular for my future.
“We haven’t set a date to discuss my future, I’m in no rush about it. There will be negotiations to keep me here.
“It would be a pleasure for me to continue at Rennes. I still have two years left on my contract and we have enough time to talk about it.”
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has promised late Olivier Giroud more game time after the France striker admitted he was “concerned” over his lack of minutes.
Giroud has once again been in the transfer headlines over the past few weeks after he came out and admitted that e may have to leave the club in the coming transfer window in order to get more game time.
There have been a number of clubs that have reportedly shown some kind of interest in the Frenchman, especially as they know that he is well down the pecking order at Chelsea and would be open to a move.
However, Giroud’s stoppage-time header clinched a 2-1 win in Rennes to put the Blues into the Champions League KO stages with two group games to spare – and Lampard has opened up and promised the striker that he will be given more minutes, as he wants him to stay at the club.
Lampard told BT Sport: “Oli will get his minutes because we have a busy schedule, we play every few days.
“I made a few changes because I felt he had to get the freshness in the team.
“I think the reason you see such a reaction around the goal, not only was it in the last minute but someone like Oli you see how he acts day in, day out and it shows you what he means to this team.”
Long-term Chelsea target Declan Rice admits winning trophies is “important” to him.
It is no secret that Rice is one of the most in-demand players in the Premier League and is being chased by all the Leagues biggest clubs after a stunning couple of seasons has turned him into a top-class holding midfielder.
Chelsea are currently leading the chase to get a transfer deal done for the Englishman in the coming windows, although that massive £80 million asking price that the Hammers have placed on the head of Rice will be a stumbling block for a deal to be completed.
But West Ham’s star man, 21, gave another hint over his thinking when he told the Sky Sports website: “As a footballer you only get one career and it goes by very quick.”
“You want to be successful for club and country. I think it’s an important thing to win trophies.
“There’s talk of Harry Kane at Spurs and what he should be doing, obviously he can do whatever he wants.
“He’s going to win trophies we all know that. I think that’s something I want to aim for as well.
“I’m only 21 but to get those highs of your career you need to win stuff and that’s what I want to do.”
Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has no plans to leave the club and wants to cement his place in Frank Lampard’s first team.
The German defender has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford bridge this season and has been frozen out by the Blues boss after seeking guarantees over playing time ahead of next summer’s Euros.
He was heavily linked with a move away from the club over the transfer window, but a shock decision to stay has meant that he has been keeping the bench warm while Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma impress at the back for Frank Lampard.
But despite the reports that he could leave in the January window, and after impressing in his last outing for Chelsea, he is now hopeful of a run of fixtures in the starting line-up, and is looking to stay at the club during the coming transfer window
“I’m satisfied with how the situation has developed in the past weeks,” Rudiger told German outlet SID.
“Now I see myself as a permanent part of the team.
“I had a tough time, so I also checked other transfer options but I received positive signals from the coaching team.”
Villarreal manager Unai Emery believes Chelsea target Samuel Chukwueze has a bright future ahead of him.
Regarded as one of the most exciting talents in the game right now, Chukwueze has been attracting all sorts of interest over the past few months as his stock in the game continues to rise.
Chelsea are just one of a number of clubs that that become interested in the very talented young man, who now has a massive £70 million clause in his contract that teams must activate before they can get any deals done.
Now his boss and former Gunners coach Emery has opened up and admitted that the winger has a bright future in the game: “We are very happy with Samuel Chukwueze, he’s growing up with us at this club,” Emery was quoted on the SUN.
“In the future, he can go to another league to grow up more, but I think he’s very happy with us and every match he plays, he tries to give the best performance.”
Chukwueze does have a very bright future in the game, he is showing alot of potential and quality, so even though Chelsea are interested in a potential transfer deal, he is a player that will not be needed for a few seasons.
