Chelsea fc close in on Sancho deal, Chelsea open Vasquez talks, Jimenez names clubs, Abraham sent Ziyech message in Chelsea roundup…

Reports have claimed Chelsea have showed an interest in Lucas Vasquez, by contacting Real Madrid about a summer move.

There has been alot of transfer speculation in the media over the past few days, despite the fact the Coronavirus has dominated the headlines and the fact that the summer transfer window is still months away from opening.

But with the reports in the media all suggesting that Frank Lampard will be seeking to add a few wingers to his chelsea side in the summer, that means there will no longer be space for the likes of Pedro, who is out of contract when this season FINALLY finishes.

And he recently come out and admitted that he will not be signing a new contract at the club and will be looking to leave at the end of the summer

Now Spanish website Todofichajes, have claimed the Blues view Vazquez as a ‘very good option’ to replace Pedro in the summer window and have made contact with Madrid about a possible deal.

The nine-capped Spain international has managed just eight starts in all competitions this season and will turn 29 in July, and although the player would like to stay at the Bernabeu, his contract will expire in 12 months and Madrid will look to get Lucas Vasquez off the books.

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane’s side are looking to sell a number of first team players during the summer transfer window in order to raise some funds for their own transfer signings, while also trying to balance the books after the coronavirus pandemic.

Chelsea have been told the strikers should gel with with incoming signing Hakim Ziyech next season.

Hakim Ziyech has been in the headlines for all the right reasons over the past few weeks after he shocked many by agreeing a summer move to Chelsea, with reports revealing that the Blues and Ajax had agreed a £36 million fee to complete this summer transaction.

But the Chelsea hierarchy and Ziyech had yet to finalise personal terms ahead of his summer arrival, but that has now been wrapped up as Chelsea announced the deal early in February on their official website, and the move got many Chelsea fans excited for whom else will be arriving in the summer.

And with the Dutch season now over, he can focus on making that move to Chelsea next season to link up with his new team-mates at Stamford Bridge, and Alfred Finnbogason, who played with Hakim Ziyech for two years when the pair were at Heerenveen, has insisted any striker would could not ‘click’ with the new Blue wasn’t any good.

‘Oh my god,’ Finnbogason told De Telegraaf, when asked about Ziyech.

‘And I already knew he was good, didn’t I. But what he has shown in recent years is not normal. If you don’t click with Ziyech, you are not a good striker.

‘All you have to do is move. He gives the balls exactly the way you want them to be.

‘Without a doubt, the Premier League will be a big test for him.

‘Players are better and more aggressive, but see what he has already shown at Ajax with his qualities in the Champions League.

‘He is something special and will be a big signing for Chelsea.

‘The pressure will be great, but he can deliver,’ he dded. ‘He is no longer a young boy either, knows how it works.’

Raul Jimenez has responded to speculation linking him with a move to the likes of Chelsea fc in the summer.

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

Raul 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 Chelsea, especially after Frank Lampard failed to sign any strikers during the January transfer window.

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, with Chelsea fc one of those clubs

Raul Jimenez failed to make the grade at Atletico Madrid earlier in his career but confessed a return to Spain to play for one of Barcelona or Real Madrid remains and ambition, but for now he remains content to continue playing a key role in Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

‘I find out [about the links with other clubs] through social media,’ Jimenez said on the Metro website

‘They have already put me at Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and every day comes out a new team that want [to sign] me.

‘I have to be calm. If they are talking about me it is because I am doing things well; I would like to continue in England. I am happy, adapted and I like the idea [of staying in the Premier League].

‘If you tell me that tomorrow an offer from Real Madrid or Barcelona comes, it is obvious that you do not let such an opportunity go. But if I stay here I am fighting to qualify for the Champions League, for important things.

‘Fighting for the title still seems difficult but we are in the Europe League round-of-16. I think that I made the right decision to come here [to Wolves] and I do not regret it.

‘Leaving the doors open for anything is the most important thing. With Wolves we are fighting for the Champions League, I am happy and I am an important player for the fans and for the team. ‘I am fine, I do not close any doors, I am open to whatever comes but it does not stop me sleeping.’

Paul Ince has warned Chelsea target Jadon Sancho to consider if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man to turn him into a world star.

Sancho is easily regarded as one of the finest talents in the game right now and has been constantly linked with a move to the Premier League during the summer transfer window after another impressive season in the Bundesliga.

Not only has he already hit double figures with goals and assists this season for Dortmund, but he has become the youngest player in the German League history to reach the 25-goal mark.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move to try and sign the talented young man, but Ince has opened the door for Chelsea fc to swoop in and try to sign the gifted Sancho, by telling the winger to think about whether of not a move to Old Trafford is the right one.

Ince said on the SUN: “When it comes to transfers, it’s not just about the team, it’s about the manager.

“Let’s look at Raheem Sterling as an example, Pep Guardiola has turned him into a world class player through his coaching and guidance.

“Sometimes as a player, it’s about looking at a team’s manager and coaching staff and whether they’d take you to that next level. That’s a decision Sancho will need to make.

“We know that Pep is experienced in that area, we know he can improve a player. But can Ole Gunnar Solskjaer? We don’t know that, whatsoever.

“We have no clue what he’s like at developing a player of that magnitude.

“He’s clearly trying to develop a young team, so that will help, but in terms of actually the man to man management and development of someone like Sancho, he’s a total unknown.

“We’ve not seen any evidence yet that he can take a player to the next level.”

There has been alot of news about the future of Sancho and no-one quite knows just what is going to happen in the next transfer window, but it will be very interesting to see if he does choose Chelsea over Manchester United
