Exciting midfielder officially signs with Chelsea, Fans told Werner deal is perfect, Lampard told to sign world class act, not Chilwell
Anjorin signs deal, Chelsea told to sign Tagliafico not Chilwell, Werner message sent in icchelseanews.
Chelsea must not pursue a deal for Ben Chilwell and should go after Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico instead, according to former West Ham midfielder Don Hutchison
We have been in the headlines for the past few months as reports have claimed that boss Frank Lampard is desperate to spend some serious money and acquire a new left-back.
And that has led to some reports in the media suggesting that they are interested in trying to sign Chilwell from Leicester in a deal that could cost us round £70 million, especially after the Englishman became one of the best defenders in the Premier League.
However, Tagliafico is also a man that could be on his way to the Bridge this season, with reports in the media suggesting that he already has an agreement to leave AJax when the summer transfer window opens up.
And Hutchison has opened up and urged the club to make a move for the Ajax star rather than making a big money move to try and sign Chilwell in the summer.
“Tagliafico all day long,” Hutchison told ESPN FC.
“We talk about transfer fees, the Chilwell transfer fee in the U.K., they’re saying over £75m-£80m which I think is astronomical.
“I look around Europe and I see loads of left-backs that are really good, if not better. I see [Marvin] Plattenhardt, I see Philipp Max.
“I think Tagliafico is the best one out there at Ajax, I think he’s terrific and I don’t think he will cost anywhere near £80m, half the money I would imagine.
“So he would get my pick, the Argentinian.”
Stan Collymore believes Timo Werner’s move to Chelsea works out for all parties – including Liverpool.
Werner has been one of the most talked about players of the past few weeks, as all the major clubs are reportedly interested in trying to secure a transfer deal for the pacy little German star.
He has scored 75 goals in 122 matches since making his RB Leipzig debut in 2013. Only Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski (29) has netted more Bundesliga goals than Werner (25) this season.[the_ad id=”164″]
His performances, and that relatively low price tag on his head has meant that we have made the first move to try and get the little star to sign up, with reports suggesting he has agreed a £170,000-a-week deal to make the move to London.
Now former Premier League star Collymore has opened up and claimed that Werner’s move here works out well for all parties, even Liverpool, who were seemingly leading the chase before we swooped in.
He told The Mirror: “The deal to take Timo Werner to Chelsea is a perfect arrangement for all concerned.
‘Perfect for the player, perfect for the Blues, perfect for RB Leipzig, who are trousering £53million, and perfect for Liverpool as well.
‘He’s a good, solid striker with promise — an all-rounder who holds the ball up well, is mobile, gets into the box and scores goals.
‘But the Liverpool fans sobbing about missing out on him can spare me the tears because he’s not Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo and the way some have reacted, you’d be forgiven for thinking he was some sort of reincarnation of both.”
Tino Anjorin has revealed why he snubbed Manchester United and Liverpool to stay at Chelsea.
After the Olivier Giroud and Willy Caballero deals, Marina Granovskaia was looking to tie down Anjorin to a new long-term deal, as they had big hopes for the future of the young man, who has been attracting all sorts of transfer interest.
But after a few months of talking, it has been revealed by the club that Anjorin has now agreed a new five-year contract to stay at Stamford Bridge, meaning that all those clubs chasing the young man have missed out.
And after agreeing the transfer deal, he has admitted that he is delighted to have signed back up, snubbing both Manchester United and Liverpool in the process, he said: “It’s a brilliant feeling. I’ve been at the club since I was six so to get to this stage and then be offered a five-year contract is amazing.
“I had no hesitation but to take it straight away because to play for the club I always dreamed of playing for is really special to me.
“I’ve been at Chelsea for so long so it feels really special to get this new long contract.
“It gives me a few years to keep developing and try to push into the first team.
“I still have a lot of hard work to do to get there but hopefully I can do it and inspire the next group of youngsters coming through.”
‘Coming on and playing well like I did in the 20 minutes that I had, it was amazing,’ the teenager recalls of his senior debut in the Carabao Cup.
‘It just feels brilliant to be out there and hear the crowd because you don’t really experience that kind of atmosphere at Under-23s level.
‘You feel like everyone is behind you. When I was about to come on, I remember just hearing this massive roar which was completely unexpected. I thought it would be quiet because nobody knew who I was but I think they knew I was from the Academy so the support was brilliant. It put a smile on my face for the rest of the day!
‘Against Everton, I’ll never forget the fans singing my name because it just felt so amazing. I was on the pitch playing and then I just heard them chanting ‘Tino, Tino, Tino’. It was unbelievable to hear that.’
Great news for the lad![the_ad id=”164″]
