Chelsea news: Striker reveals price to pay, Chelsea in talks to sign superstar striker, Kane told to make summer move
Guys here is a roundup of the top news, transfer talk and gossip from us over the past 24 hours that you may have missed.
Chelsea target Raul Jimenez has personally revealed he will cost at least £34.5million this summer – as doesn’t have a release clause in his Wolves contract.
After recently becoming the club’s top scorer in Premier League history – netting his 23rd league goal to overtake Steven Fletcher’s 22, interest in a Premier League deal has taken another leap forward, with United hot on the list of possible suitors
Jimenez, 28, has 10 goals and six assists in the Premier League this season for Champions League hopefuls Wolves, and we believe that he could be a good buy for the Blues, especially as there has been alot of speculation about a number of players leaving the club.
He is a very good player who has had a great season, and from what we are hearing, there will be a lot of top clubs trying to sign him in the summer, but despite all the interest, he could do a job at Stamford Bridge, But we may be forced to dig deep in their pockets to try and complete a deal.
Speaking of a potential summer transfer, Jimenez revealed that he wont be sold for anything less that the £34.5 million that Wolves paid to acquire his services.
He was quoted on THE SUN: “[Wolves] bought me for €40million (£34.5m), they won’t sell me for less.
“There is no release clause, but with clubs [in England], it is different how they are managed.”
Jamie Carragher has warned Chelsea target Harry Kane he has reached the crossroads of his career at the “worst possible time”
Regarded as one of the finest strikers in the game right now, and one of the most deadliest in the Premier League, Kane has hit the transfer headlines over the past few weeks after he came out and announced that he could leave the Spurs in the coming seasons if they fail to progress.
That has led to all sorts of rumours in the media linking him with a move to the Bridge, as many regard him as a world class striker that is playing in a side that has limited capabilities right now.
In his Telegraph column, the Sky Sports pundit said: “Harry Kane has reached the crossroads of his career at the worst time possible. In other circumstances, the Tottenham striker’s comments suggesting he would consider a move in the near future would be reasonable.
“These are far from normal times, with clubs losing money and needing to cut costs rather than plan major investments in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
“That means if players in the highest price bracket want out of their clubs, there is less chance they will get their wish.[the_ad id=”164”]
“Kane is in that category. A limited number of clubs can afford him, and I am not sure how many have the appetite to engage in a fractious negotiation with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy in the current climate.”
Carragher added: “Kane turns 27 in July. We have no idea when the next transfer window will open or next season start. If Kane does not leave soon, the situation gets trickier for him.
“When players hit 28, psychologically it makes a big difference to clubs. They see him as nearer 30, recognise there is no resale value and balk at high valuations.”
Chelsea have reportedly made contact with Edinson Cavani as they look to land him on a free transfer this summer.
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.[the_ad id=”164″]
But 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, but it seems that we are still keen to try and nail down the services of Cavani, as reports on L’EQUIPE have claimed that we have made contact with the players agents about a free summer move to Stamford Bridge.
Tammy Abrahma recently claimed he would have welcomed a move for Cavani in the January window: ‘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.’
Look, Cavani is a brilliant striker, but is he still agile enough to cope with the Premier League? Would he really make a difference to the side next season?
