Potter backed to sign £35M star – Chelsea confident midfielder will sign – Bohely told to sign £100M man


Chelsea confident on Kovacic – Potter backed to sign Trossard – Chelsea told to sign Rice in Chelsea news of the day –

Chelsea will be confident that Mateo Kovacic will sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge – according to reporter Iomie Stanley

Chelsea have been trying to tie down a number of first-team squad members ever since Ted Boehly arrived at the club over the summer window as they are keen to keep hold of them

And The Blues want to avoid a situation like N’Golo Kante and Jorginho with both midfielders reaching the end of their current deals in June 2023 but yet to agree on extending their stay at the Bridge – by getting Kovacic signed up to a new contract

Over the past few seasons Kovacic has really developed into an important player of the side and a man that both Graham Potter and former Coach Thomas Tuchel could really rely on.

And it is claimed that the Blues are looking to boost the bank balance of Kovacic by a few more thousand and get him to stay for a couple more seasons – but talks will not be opened up until after the world cup

Iomie Stanley told IcFootballnews: ‘There are many reasons why Chelsea are keen to tie down the contract of Kovacic – but he really is a solid member of the squad and a man that they would be silly to let go

‘If the reports are true and Chelsea are keen to give him that long-contract offer – it will be a very good decision to make

‘There is far too much speculation surrounding a few stars already – so getting him all signed up will mean that they can focus on the rest of the squad – and then adding some fresh meat.’

‘And the fact that Kovacic looks very happy at the club will give the board confidence that a deal will get struck.’

Trossard claim made –

Rio Ferdinand has tipped Graham Potter to raid his old club in January and sign Arsenal target Leandro Trossard for Chelsea

Potter is easily regarded as one of the finest young managers in the Premier League and has been tipped to manage one of the big clubs – but no-one could have imagined that he would be taking over Chelsea so soon into the season.

But with a new manager comes some new players – and it is believed that Potter will now look to add some players to the squad that he believes can help take Chelsea back to the top – and players to the side that will help play the kind of football that he wants

And that has led to constant speculation in the media that Trossard is a player that the Premier League giants are very much interested in signing

Now – According to a report from Express, Chelsea are pushing to sign the 27 year-old in the January transfer window.

And the report adds that Trossard too is said to be keen on reuniting with former manager, Graham Potter, at Stamford Bridge.

The 47-year-old played a key role in helping Leandro Trossard establish himself as a top class Premier League midfielder and the Belgium international has gone to another level this season.

‘Trossard, he’s one of the players I’ve heard there hasn’t even been a bid for him since he’s been there, someone told me,’ Ferdinand told Vibe with Five.

‘This guy is doing major bits right now. If Potter doesn’t go back there to try and sign him I’d be amazed.

‘The best part of his game is being creative. He’s just scored a few goals lately, that’s not even his game.

‘I think the creative and the approach play in his game is unreal. The only thing I was asking for before was a bit more end product and he’s actually doing that now.’

Rice move –

Blues legend Frank Leboeuf has encouraged Chelsea to splash the cash and try to sign West Ham star Declan Rice

Rice is a player that has developed into a world class holding midfielder during his time with the Hammers – but many now feel that it is the right time for him to test himself at a Champions League club

Chelsea are the clear favourites to try and get a deal done and have been linked with a move for the player for the last couple of windows – but have not be able to get any sort of transfer deal done

However – Blues legend Leboeuf has opened up and told Chelsea that they need to sign Declan Rice

Leboeuf said: “Otherwise the only other position I think Chelsea need to strengthen is central midfield as a potential replacement for Kante.

“Kante is out for about 4 months and while Jorginho is a great player he is not defensively minded. Kovacic is a good player and he does his job well but he needs a partner.

“Declan Rice is the one for me. It would be very, very interesting if Kante leaves. I would love to see them {‘} and get Rice from West Ham.

“I get goosebumps thinking of Mason Mount and Declan Rice playing together at Chelsea because they are academy graduates and that’s what fans want to see. Man Utd are missing the point with their transfer policy of just buying big stars.

“They need to remember the Neville brothers, Beckham, Scholes, Giggs etc all came through the system and providing the backbone of the greatest period in the club’s history.

“The biggest figure in Chelsea’s recent history is John Terry, who OK started at West Ham but he’s Chelsea through and through and came through the academy like Mason Mount.

“Declan Rice belongs to Chelsea, like Conor Gallagher.”
