Brazilian tells Chelsea he wants to sign deal, Abraham speaks on Cavani, Legedn shocked at Chelsea transfer decision
GUYS HER IS A ROUNDUP OF OUR TOP STORIES OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS.
Tammy Abraham has admitted that he would have loved Chelsea to sign Edinson Cavani during the January transfer window.
We were involved in a lot of transfer speculation and rumours during the January transfer window as there was a number of players linked with a possible move to Stamford Bridge, but despite all the rumours, Frank Lampard failed to secure any transfer deals.
Cavani was one man that was constantly linked with a transfer move to London, especially after he handed in a transfer request as he sought to make the move away from PSG after 198 goals for the French giants.
But as we said, despite all the speculation and rumours, we could simply not get a deal done for the big striker and Lampard will have to get through the rest of the season with the squad that they currently have.
Abraham has performed well under the pressure of scoring the goals this season following Eden Hazard’s departure, but the young England international claims he would have welcomed a move for Cavani.
‘The players we were talking about bringing in were like Cavani and other top class strikers who have been around the game for many years,’ Abraham said in the Metro
‘It would have been nice if he had come. He would have been someone I can learn off and steal his ideas to add to my own.
‘It didn’t happen though and for me it gives me that extra push and desire to claim my position and be as best as I can.’
We would have loved to see a few players arrive during the January window and it is just a shame that the club did not pull their finger out their arses and snap up a few bargains.
Willian has told the CHELSEA that he wants to stay, despite interest from Barcelona.
Look, the January transfer window has come and gone and all the speculation in the media now will be about possible arrivals in the summer transfer window, as WE are already planning for possible arrivals.
But there has been speculation in the media over the past few months which have suggested that Brazilian star Willian will be leaving the club after failing to agree a big new contract with the club, with talks ongoing for months now.[the_ad id=”164″]
His failure to sign a new deal with the club has led to speculation in the media suggesting that Barcelona are all set to come calling and offer him a big time contract to make the move to the Camp Nou.
However, the Metro website has reported that Willian is hoping to commit his future with the club and has informed the club that he wants to sign a new contract before his current deal runs out in the summer.
Arsenal legend Paul Merson admits he was ‘shocked’ by Chelsea’s quiet transfer window but has urged Frank Lampard not to allow the lack of January arrivals to wreck his team’s season.
The transfer ban was lifted by FIFA back in December and it quickly led to a lot of transfer speculation in the media suggesting that we would spend some serious money to help improve the side for the second half of the season.
Frank Lampard even came out on a number of occasions and voiced his frustration at the lack of business done by the club in January, but in the end, fans failed to see any new arrivals make the move to London.
But despite the fact that no business was done, Arsenal legend Merson has urged Lampard to forget the window and try to focus on the rest of the season, telling the Sky Sports website: ‘It’s a shock, really, it’s a shock. This is a big club. You wouldn’t think they would be struggling to get players in.
‘They are probably the biggest team in London at the moment so I’m not sure why it was a problem to bring players in.
‘It’s a disappointment but I hope Frank doesn’t use it as a crutch and think: “If we don’t finish in the top-four… that’s why.”‘ Former Southampton and England striker Matt Le Tissier added:
‘What was the point of that [getting the transfer ban lifted]? What really was the point?
‘You could tell Frank was disappointed. He wanted to bring in players and it wasn’t done. ‘Having gone to all that trouble, you would have thought they would have done at least one transfer.’
