Chelsea bombard £126m star and welcome him to Bridge, Lampard has £150m to sign these four players, Lampard: Order Chelsea to seal £70 million deal
Guys here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea, news and gossip from Icfootballnews.com
Chelsea fans have bombarded Jadon Sancho with calls to sign for the club in the summer.
Sancho, who has 12 goals and 13 assists in just 18 Bundesliga appearances this season, is one of the most in-demand players across Europe and there were many reports in the January window suggesting that Chelsea were keen to make a move to sign the winger then.
However, Dortmund did not want to sell one of their most prized assets and it seemed that Sancho was keen to stay put until at least the summer, meaning that Chelsea went the whole January transfer window without making any meaningful transfer deals.
But with the likes of Chelsea, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich all credited with interest in the prodigious wide-man, Dortmund could demand in excess of £100million for Sancho in the summer, who became the first teenager ever to score 25 goals in Germany’s top flight recently.
Sancho tweeted during Wednesday night’s show in support of contestant Mike Boateng, putting a picture up of himself doing Mike’s trademark shark fin gesture captioned: “TeamMike.
Replying to Sancho’s tweet, one Chelsea fan said: “Chelsea is the only team you should be joining.”
“Chelsea, ASAP,” another wrote.
“TeamCFC,” said one more, while a fourth replied: “TeamChels.”
“If Mike means Chelsea then yes, TeamMike,” posted another.
One slightly confused fan said: “Don’t know what this means but pretty sure it’s something to do with Chelsea.”
“TeamChelsea brother,” a sixth Blues fan wrote.
Another said: “come to Chelsea bro.”
Reports have claimed that Frank Lampard will be handed a massive £150 million to spend on new players in the summer by the Chelsea hierarchy.
It is no secret that Lampard wanted to add to his squad during the January window, wanted to improve in key areas of the pitch and push on for the second half of the season, but the hierarchy failed to get any business done and in the end Lampard failed to make any real changes.
However, that will surely be different in the summer as reports on the Daily Express have claimed that Lampard will be handed a massive transfer kitty to play with and improve on the side, in hope that he could sign a few top class players that will get the club challenging for titles once again.
Chelsea made over £150 million during last summers window, and it is believed that money will be handed to Lampard, with a number of players on the shopping list.
CHELSEA need a new goalkeeper as Lampard is said to be unhappy with Kepa and Newcastle shot-stopper Dubravka, with his Premier League experience, could suit the Blues nicely.
Chelsea have the option to buy Ake back from Bournemouth for £40m, having sold him for just over half of that a couple of years ago.
Richarlison was reportedly the subject of an £85million bid from Barcelona before January deadline day but Everton rejected their advances. Chelsea would likely be told to spend in excess of £100m for the Brazilian.
Zaha is still adamant he wants a move away from Crystal Palace, but he wants to stay in London. Lampard will likely have to battle Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta for his signature in the summer.
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.
Look, we all know that Chelsea will come all guns blazing in the summer window as they need to improve, and although Brendan Rodgers does not want to lose his best players in the winter window, the right offer will get a transfer deal done.
Football is all about the money these days, so how could a club like Leicester reject £70 million if it was placed on the table? The Answer is: they probably couldn’t.
chelsea need to improve that back-line in order to get back challenging for titles, and if they can sign players like Chilwell, then it WILL SEND A STATEMENT to the rest of the Premier Leagaue.
