Here is a roundup of todays Chelsea news, gossip and transfer news from the media.
Chelsea are now reportedly ready to sign up Christian Pulisic for £70m as Borussia Dortmund are ready to sell.
The gifted 20-year old American has reportedly caught the attentions of Blues boss Maurizio Sarri over the last few weeks with the Italian looking to bolster his attack in the coming transfer window, and mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title.
Sarri is looking to add a bit more width and creativity to the attack, despite having the likes of Eden Hazard, Willian, Pedro, Alvaro Morata, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic all pulling the strings at Stamford bridge, and reportedly sees the talented American as an idea signing.
And after Hazard admitted that ‘he could leave’ at the end of the season, the Daily Mirror website has claimed that Sarri is now ready to sanction a £70 million deal to bring the American to the Premier League.
Pulisic has played 13 games for Dortmund this season, and despite our interest in a possible deal, the Germans are unwilling to let the exciting 20-year old leave half way through the season when they have a great chance to win the League and we have to wait until the summer to try and convicne Dortmund to let him go.
But the report goes on to say that Dortmund are now ready to cash in on Pulisic at the end of the season, as they believe they can cope with his potential loss after the emergence of Englishman Jadon Sancho.
Pulisic has recently announced he will hold talks with the Germans about his future when the January transfer window opens up in just a few weeks time.
“I’m still focused on Dortmund. We are doing great this season,” Pulisic told NBC Sports.
“Once the break comes [in January], that is always when I will have to discuss with Dortmund and see about my future.” (READ MORE)
Chelsea star Jorginho misses Italy according to the former Napoli star’s agent, Joao Santos.
We managed to convince Jorginho to ignore a switch to Manchester City during the summer transfer window and make the £53 million move to Stamford Bridge, following Maurizio Sarri to the club.
The Italian was desperate to add his former playmaker to the side this season, and despite one poor performance against Spurs at the weekend, Jorginho has adapted to life in England without any real issues, becoming an integral part of the Blues squad already and proving that he has the ability to be the clubs main man.
But while Jorginho has adapted well, Santos admits he often returns to Italy as the Brazilian-born star misses his homeland.
“This experience has gone better than all expectations,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.
“It’s not easy with a new club and new league, but the results have been so positive.
“He does miss Italy, though, and returns whenever he can to see his old friends.
“He was there for 10 years, after all.” (READ MORE)
David Moyes has told both Chelsea that Marko Arnautovic ‘is ready’ for a top four club, but West Ham should not let him go.
Arnautovic has been in top-class form for the Hammers this season and has transformed himself into one of the most dangerous, and powerful strikers in the premier league over the past 12 months.
His form, and performances, have led to speculation that we are lining up a January moves with Maurizio Sarri not impressed with his current front-line.
And Moyes says Arnautovic is ready to join a top club in the coming transfer windows, telling the Sky Sports website: “Marko is really important to West Ham. They need him.
“He can play for a top-four club, he’s good enough.
“He’s got the ability. He can play with the top players and considers himself a top player – you’ve got to remember he’s already been at the likes of Inter Milan before.
“But where do you get that level of striker or forward player now? They’re really hard to find.
“Marko’s change from a winger to a centre forward has really reinvented him.
“When we arrived at West Ham the punters weren’t having him, and to be fair if you had watched him a lot at Stoke you’d have questioned him.
“But the minute he moved to centre forward he was a revelation. He changed completely. He can score, he’s powerful, he’s quick, he’s got energy.
“That was always the thing questioned about Marko – did he run, what was his attitude like – but we found him great to work with.
“There was a period last season where he was making more sprints in the Premier League than any other player.” (READ MORE)
