Star admits ‘he is happy’ to sign with Chelsea – Blues submit offer to make sixth signing – Chelsea want £40M man

Pedro Porro

Here is a roundup of the top Chelsea news and gossip from the last 24 hours that we think you may have missed guys –

Chelsea have reportedly made Sporting Lisbon defender Pedro Porro their new transfer priority after the signing of Mykhailo Mudryk.

Chelsea have had some serious issues this season as Reece James has really struggled to stay fit – with his latest injury set to keep him out for a good few weeks.

That means that the Blues will need to delve into that transfer kitty to try and add a new full-back to the squad – and now they are looking to upset rivals Tottenham for the signature of Porro

It has been claimed in many media outlets over the past few weeks that Chelsea have begun talks with Porro about a move to Stamford Bridge – and now Journalist Simon Phillips has claimed that he is no a priority for Chelsea

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has had some real issues at the back himself since taking over at the club – and simply cannot keep a clean sheet on a regular basis.

Matt Doherty and Emerson Royal have been useless at times for the club – meaning that the Italian had asked the board for the signing of Porro – who is making a real name for himself in the game.

According to journalist Simon Phillips, Chelsea now want to secure the signing of the 23-year-old fullback is the Blues’ main priority as Graham Potter continues to spend in the January transfer window.

If these rumors are true and Chelsea are now interested in trying to sign the talented defender – it will mean that Tottenham may have to pay alot more cash than they wanted to in the first place.

Chelsea have the money – they have the pedigree, and they have that ability to sign top players – so if they truly are interested – it will become very difficult for Spurs to sign Porro

Maduake offer made – 



Chelsea have reportedly made a £26.5m (€30m) bid to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Noni Madueke in the winter transfer window.

The highly-rated forward has gone on to score 20 goals in 79 first-team appearances for PSV, with his form attracting interest from Premier League giants Chelsea.

Graham Potter has had some serious injury issues to a number of first-team players already this season and knows that he needs to add more depth in order to get through the next few weeks, and months.

The Blues have been one of the busiest sides this month, having already splashed the cash to sign David Datro Fofana, Andrey Santos, Benoit Badiashile, Joao Felix and Mykhaylo Mudryk as Graham Potter looks to strengthen his squad for the second phase of the season.

That has led to reports that Chelsea have made their moves to try and sign the talented Madueke – who has been impressing over in the Dutch League over the past few seasons.

According to ESPN, Chelsea have now made a £26.5m (€30m) bid to sign Madueke in the winter transfer window.

The newspaper claims PSV have no interest in selling the 20-year-old but that has not prevented Chelsea tabling a formal bid after making an enquiry last week.

Chelsea are buying all these young talents that have done nothing in the game really – and will not do anything for a few seasons – and Madueke is one of those type of talents.

Yes he has done well – in the DUTCH League – and yes he has impressed – but this is the Premier League – Potter needs players that are ready to make a difference now – not in a few seasons.

Mudryk happy – 



Mykhailo Mudryk completed his move to Chelsea   over the weekend – and is delighted with the move to Stamford Bridge

The 22-year-old had seemed destined to join Arsenal after months of being linked with the Emirates, only for the Blues to swoop in at the last minute with a sensational €100million (£88.5m) offer for the Shakhtar Donetsk star.

The Ukrainian international, who turned 22 earlier this month, has put pen to paper on an eight-and-a-half year contract with the Blues to seal his move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea announced: ‘His club form earned Mudryk a place in the senior Ukraine squad last year, receiving eight caps since making his international debut in their win over Scotland in the FIFA World Cup qualifying play-offs in June.

‘Chelsea would like to thank Shakhtar Donetsk for enabling Mykhailo to take up this new opportunity.

‘Welcome to Stamford Bridge, Mykhailo!’

And after the move to London – Mudryk expressed just how delighted with the switch – admitting that he is happy to play for such a huge club.

‘I’m so happy to sign for Chelsea,’ Mudryk said after completing his move.

‘This is a huge club, in a fantastic league and it is a very attractive project for me at this stage of my career. I’m excited to meet my new team-mates and I’m looking forward to working and learning under Graham Potter and his staff.’

We have been reading reports that his heart was set on a move to Arsenal – he wanted a move to the Emirates – but they would not meet his demands.

It is never good when a player arrives because of the money – but Chelsea fans will just be hoping that he comes and impresses – because all eyes will not be on him.
