Here is a roundup of the top Chelsea news and gossip that we think you guys may have missed from icchelseanews today –

Conor Gallagher wants to be paid the same as midfield CHELSEA FC partner Moises Caicedo if he signs a new contract.

Gallagher has been a sure shot name in the Chelsea line-up whenever available, as Mauricio Pochettino is more than happy with his performances for the Blues this season.

The midfielder has also been skipper at times of the outfit as well. Despite this, the future of the star is still in doubt at Stamford Bridge, and there has been much speculation that he will be sold in the summer.

It is no secret that the club have been splashing the cash over the past few transfer windows – but are getting very close to breaching that financial fair play rule and do not want to get fined or lose points.

Now, Jacobs has claimed that Gallagher would agree a new contract at the club and would lik to sign a deal that is similar to Moises Caicedo, who is reportedly on the £200,000-a-week mark.

Jacobs also claims that it is not a ridiculous pay rise he is looking for, He said: ‘It’s also worth making one thing clear: Gallagher is not being greedy, and Chelsea have not told him to lower his wage ‘demands’ despite some suggestions. Things aren’t even at that stage yet.

‘Chelsea could plausibly still offer Gallagher a new deal, but nothing has progressed as of now. And Gallagher would be looking for somewhere close to what Moises Caicedo earns.’

CHELSEA BOARD OFFER DUO – 

Premier League giants CHELSEA FC have reportedly offered Real Madrid Enzo Fernandez and Marc Cucurella for a combined transfer fee of £166m.

We have been spending some crazy money over the past few transfer windows and signed a number of players that have been over-valued in the transfer market – and now they may need to sell a few.

It is no secret that the club are getting close to breaking the financial fair play rules – which could cost them points and money – and will need to sell a number of players to balance the books, and then add some fresh talent to the side.

Fernandez came to Stamford Bridge with a massive reputation and many Blues fans had hoped that they would be getting a player that could help bring the club silverware – but despite playing most games – he doesn’t score many goals and e doesn’t assist either.

Cucurella is a man that was tipped to be one of the best left-backs in the world – but it simply has not worked out for the Spaniard at Stamford Bridge – and he has been unable to hold down a regular spot in the side.

And if you believe reports on Defensa Central, – they have both been offered to Spanish giants Madrid.

It is highly unlikely, though, that Los Blancos would be interested in such an offer they now prioritise the signing of Alphonso Davies after securing Kylian Mbappe’s signature.

GYOKERES PRICE SET – 

Sporting have slapped a €50million (£43m) price tag on Viktor Gyokeres as CHELSEA FC line-up a potential move for the striker.

Gyokeres has scored 36 goals in 39 games for Sporting and is one of the form attacking players in European football this term, with many reports in the medcia suggesting that he could be sold in the coming transfer window.

Europe’s elite are queueing up to prise the Sweden international away from Lisbon after his stunning start to life with Sporting, and we are one of the clubs that are desperate to delve into that transfer kitty and add a 30 goals a season forward to that attack

Gyokeres’ eye-watering €100m (£86m) release clause at Estadio Jose Alvalade has been well documented, but Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport indicate that Sporting could be prepared to agree a deal for half that price.

However – Gyokeres has been keen to distance himself from rumours of a big-money summer switch: ‘I don’t think much about it now actually,’ he told the Swedish media while on international duty.

‘I want to win the league and the cup with Sporting – that’s where I’m putting all my energy and strength.

‘It’s a sign that I’ve been performing well, but it’s not something I take too seriously.

‘It’s just speculation, but it’s good and fun to talk about.

‘We’ll see what happens in the summer, I don’t know what will happen. But I really like Sporting and I don’t feel stressed at all for what’s to come.’
