Striker announces he has signed with Chelsea, Lampard: sign £100m powerhouse, Lampard told to bring goal-machine to Chelsea
Here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea news, gossip and transfer speculation from icchelseanews.com guys.
Chelsea should sign Kalidou Koulibaly in the summer and get their defence sorted out once and for all.
We failed to get any business done during the January window window, but it will mean that Frank Lampard will be able to delve into the clubs transfer kitty and add a few players to the squad in the summer that will add some experience, and quality in the right areas of the pitch.
And one name that will be high up on the shopping list of the boss id that of Koulibaly, who is easily regarded as one of the finest central defenders in Seria A, and around Europe.
Koulibaly has been outstanding for Napoli over the past few seasons and his performances has attracted all sorts of interest from the games biggest clubs, with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and even Barcelona all joining us in the chase for the defenders signature.
It has been reported on many occasions that Napoli do not want to let the powerhouse leave the club at the end of the season without a fight, and will demand well in excess of £150 million for the man regarded as the man that could challenge Virgil Van Dijk for the best defender in the world tag.
But reports in Italy suggest Napoli will have to sell the highly sought after centre-back should they fail to secure Europe League football next season with Paris Saint-Germain also interested in acquiring his signature.
Strong, classy and composed, the 28-year-old is rightly considered world-class and would be a major statement of intent from Lampard in his quest to get the club back challenging for more than a top four spot.
Armando Broja has confirmed he has signed his first professional contract with Chelsea via his own instagram.
We were fed a lot of transfer talk over the last few weeks as it seemed that Frank Lampard was going to do a whole load of business to improve the side and give the club more of a chance to get back inside the top four.
But despite all the speculation and rumours in the media, the boss failed to get any transfer business for first team players done, and instead we secured a number of deals for the academy players instead.[the_ad id=”164″]
Two months after his 18th birthday Broja notched a hat-trick on his maiden FA Youth Cup bow in a 4-0 win over Huddersfield Town at Kingsmeadow – that was followed by the forward scoring during his first start for the development squad in a single goal victory over Tottenham.
Broja shared striker responsibilites with George Nunn throughout his maiden season as a scholar, making 23 appearances and scoring twice. He ended the campaign with a call-up to the Albania Under-21s and a brace on his debut.
And as a reward for his excellent start to the new season, we have decided to tie him down to his first professional contract in the game until 2022, something he could not wait to shar on his Instagram account.
Chelsea should do everything they can to sign Jadon Sancho, after his riproaring performance for Dortmund against PSG, claims Jason Cundy.
Sancho, who has 12 goals and 13 assists this season, is one of the most in-demand players across Europe and there were many reports in the January window suggesting that we were keen to make a move to sign the winger then, but Dortmund did not want to sell during the winter window
And former Chelsea and Spurs defender, Cundy, who was gobsmacked at the English teenager’s performance against PSG as the German side won 2-1 thanks to two from Erling Haaland, has urged Chelsea to all they can to sign up the brilliantly gifted talent, Cundy told talkSPORT: “He played like Neymar in his prime.
“The confidence and the arrogance he had, in a good way, he embraced the occasion.
“He was unplayable. Everybody get your chequebook out and go sign that kid – because he is special.”’
