The rumours are circulating about who will be Chelsea‘s next big signing, so who will be the new blood to ensure the goals start flowing again.                                                                                                                                                                                 
There are three names currently in the frame to make the move to Stamford Bridge, first is Santos’ Neymar, then there is teenage sensation Romelu Lukaku and finally Palermo’s Javier Pastore.                                                                                                                      
It is thought that Chelsea are very close to signing Neymar, the Santos striker has already represented Brazil despite only being 19-years-old.                                                                                                                                                                                   
The young striker grabbed everyone’s attention after an excellent 2010, when he scored 43 goals in 63 games and made his Brazilian debut.                                                                                                                                                                                              
It is thought that his agent is in London holding transfer talks, Chelsea officials will want to get a deal completed as soon as possible as there are rumours that Barcelona may also make a move for him.                                                                                                           
Romelu Lukaku has constantly impressed since breaking into the Anderlecht side, in his first full season he scored 15 goals in 33 games and then this season he managed 16 in 37.                                                                                                                          
Shelling out £23 million for a 18-years-old may seem a lot, but this youngster is very talented and well worth the money. He has scored twice for the Belgium national team in nine starts, and is one for the future.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
Another option is Argentine Javier Pastore, the attacking midfield player is seen as a long-term replacement for Frank Lampard, but is ready to play first-team football immediately.                                                                                                                         
In a struggling Palermo team this season he still managed to score 11 goals in 34 starts, and on the 14th November he grabbed his first ever hat-trick in his side’s 3-1 derby win over Catania.                                                                                                                 
It is believed that the Blues have tabled a substantial bid of around £33 million, which has been rejected due to his minimum release fee being £44 million – A figure that Palermo owner Maurizio Zamparini is holding out for.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
Like the other two players Chelsea are chasing, there is expected to be a lot of competition for Pastore’s signature with Manchester City being known admirers as well as big clubs in Italy and Spain keen to sign him.

PL side willing to bid up to £10m for the signature of promising 20-year-old Chelsea starlet

Published

Crystal Palace keen on Chelsea youngster Conor Gallagher

According to the Sun, Crystal Palace are interested in bidding up to £10m for Chelsea prospect, Conor Gallagher.

The 20-year-old midfielder has been at the club since 2008. Currently on loan at Swansea City, he has been an everpresent as the club strives to make the playoffs.

Gallagher believes he has improved massively in terms of creativity since his move to the Liberty Stadium. This can be attributed to him assisting 6 times in 14 appearances for the Swans so far. (h/t Transfermarkt)

This has caught the attention of Palace boss Roy Hodgson. He sees the 20-year-old as an ideal prospect as he tries to strengthen his squad.

Gallagher has two years left on his Chelsea contract and Hodgson hopes the club is willing to part with the talented youngster. The youngster had spent the first half of the season on loan at Charlton Athletic. He played 26 times for them, scoring 6 goals and assisting 4. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Although Frank Lampard has proven generous in his willingness to play youngsters, the Blues are well stocked in midfield. It remains to be seen if Gallagher has what it takes to break into our squad.

According to the report, Palace are keen to take him either permanently or on a loan. A loan would be the better choice though, given that Gallagher will find game time easier to come by at Selhurst Park.

This will give us the perfect scenario to judge the youngster’s usefulness in a Chelsea jersey. If he does not meet our expectations, we might as well cash in on him.

It will also be a test of the youngster’s willingness to prove himself. Having grown up admiring Frank Lampard, he now has an opportunity to please the Chelsea boss.

A box-to-box midfielder who can fulfil a variety of roles, Gallagher’s adaptability is an excellent strength.

Gallagher has represented England at various youth levels. He has certainly shown he has what it takes to thrive in the Championship. Whether he can do so at a higher level or not remains to be seen.

“I was like, wow” – Chelsea star wants sensational national teammate at Stamford Bridge

Antonio Rudiger wants Kai Havertz at Chelsea

Speaking to Sky Germany (h/t Daily Mail), Chelsea defensive star Antonio Rudiger has revealed that he wants Kai Havertz to join him at Stamford Bridge.

If it does happen, he will be the second major German star to move to Chelsea this window, following Timo Werner.

“I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t want him at Chelsea.”

Rudiger clearly has a high impression of his international compatriot. Given his first-hand experience of having played alongside him, it comes as no surprise.

“Kai is talented. When I saw him train with the Germany national team I was like, wow!”

The 21-year-old is one of the sought after players in world football. The Blues have been heavily linked with a move for the Leverkusen star.

The youngster has enjoyed a prolific season in Germany. He has scored 17 goals and made 9 assists in 43 games this season. (h/t Transfermarkt)

After having missed out on the Champions League and also falling short in the cup final, Havertz could be ready to make a fresh start at Chelsea. It is bound to be a matter of debate when he next meets up with Leverkusen officials. (h/t Daily Mail)

The Germans can still qualify for the Champions League if they win the Europa League.

The Blues have taken the transfer market by storm with their moves for Werner and Ziyech. Adding Havertz to the mix will make this our most exciting window for some time.

Rudi Voeller had earlier admitted that although Leverkusen hopes to retain the German for another year, his departure remains a very real possibility.

Chelsea’s pursuit of the player has been made easier following the lack of enthusiasm shown by Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. (h/t Daily Mail)

The Blues are currently in fourth spot and are also in the semifinals of the FA Cup. The Frank Lampard era has had its shares of up and downs but also undeniable progress.

Whether Havertz will join the Blue revolution or not remains to be seen.

Havertz has made seven appearances for the German national team and has scored one goal.

Chelsea set to sell as many as six players to fund Kai Havertz transfer

According to the Express, Chelsea could sell as many as six players to fund a move for German sensation Kai Havertz.

The 21-year-old is one of the sought after players in world football. The Blues have been making waves with their pre-emptive moves in the market and are set to do so with the Leverkusen star.

It has been a heartbreaking few days as Leverkusen missed out on Champions League qualification while also losing the DFB Pokal final to Bayern Munich, a match in which Havertz scored.

He could now be set for a fresh start at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is willing to back Frank Lampard in the market. It will not be cheap though, with Havertz being valued at a mammoth £90million by Leverkusen.

According to the report, the likes of Marcos Alonso, Michy Batshuayi, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Kenedy, Emerson Palmieri and Danny Drinkwater are all likely to be shipped out.

None of the players is high in our pecking order and the club can risk losing them. Alonso, Emerson, and Batshuayi are out of sorts and out of favour, while Bakayoko has spent the last two years out on loan.

Kenedy has failed to make a mark, while the lesser we talk about Drinkwater, the better. Unlike the six players mentioned, Havertz is someone who can come in and add value to our squad.

Our chances of signing the German were boosted following Rudi Voeller’s admission. He confirmed that the player can move if a deal can be agreed upon.

It promises to be a busy summer at Chelsea. The Blues have so far invested well and in Havertz, they will be getting a potential superstar in the works.

It remains to be seen how we get rid of the deadwood in the squad. A new dawn is approaching at Stamford Bridge and not everyone will be a part of the Blue revolution.

European giants prepared to offer €20m for 25-year-old Chelsea star

Inter Milan prepared to offer €20m for Emerson Palmieri

According to a report from The Guardian, Serie A heavyweights Inter Milan are ready to offer €20m to acquire the services of Chelsea star Emerson Palmieri this summer.

Emerson arrived at Chelsea from AS Roma in the January transfer window in 2018. However, he has never been able to establish himself as a first-choice in the starting XI at Stamford Bridge. Till date, the 25-year-old has managed 53 appearances for Chelsea, bagging one goal and five assists.

Emerson started the 2019/20 campaign as the first-choice ahead of Marcos Alonso, but failed to make an impression. And eventually, he ended up losing the spot to the Spaniard. He has featured just 19 times in all competitions, managing a solitary assist.

Emerson, too, is open to leaving the club as he wants to play regularly in order to earn himself a place in Italy’s squad for the European championships next summer. (h/t The Guardian)

Inter Milan are very much interested in securing the services of Emerson. Manager Antonio Conte, who brought the 25-year-old to Chelsea, is seeking a reunion with the full-back at San Siro. (h/t The Guardian)

The report adds that negotiations are underway between the two clubs. The Nerazzurri are willing to offer a transfer fee of €20m (£18m). However, Chelsea are likely to demand a larger sum, considering that he has still two years left on his deal.

It seems like Emerson’s time at Chelsea is pretty much up. It now remains to be seen where the 7-time capped Italy international ends up moving in the summer.
