Chelsea answer given after Germans opens up about offer to sign powerful striker Waldschmidt
Freiburg have denied rumours that Chelsea have made a bid for their striker Luca Waldschmidt ahead of the summer transfer window.
There has been speculation in the media about possible incomings and out-goings in the summer transfer window, with a number of world class players linked with a move to the club and a number of fringe players linked with a move away, players like Giroud.
There was even speculation in the media that he was all set to leave during the January window, but with the club unable to sign a new striker, and Abraham picking up a serious injury, it meant that Lampard needed the Frenchman to stay put until at least the end of the season.
However, reports on the SUNDAY SUN have claimed that Giroud is all set to depart the club at the end of the season, as he has ‘already agreed personal terms’ to sign with Inter, and that means that we will surely step up their chase for Waldschmidt.
Waldschmidt, 23, has won two senior caps following his sensational performance in last year’s European Under-21 Championship in Italy, where he banged in seven goals in four games, and the locals were so impressed with the starlet they named him ‘Il Bomber’ in a nod to West Germany’s legend Gerd Muller, who was known as ‘Der Bomber
Football.London say media outlets in Germany claim we have commenced talks in over a £20million move for the Bundesliga player, but the club’s sporting director Clemens Hartenbach told Bild: “It is clear that Luca is rightly interesting for other clubs.
“However, no contact has been made in this case. We don’t know anything about it.”
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out once the season gets back under way, as the lad clearly has potential and there is a reason why Lampard has taken such a keen interest in trying to get a deal done.
And btw, £20 million is not alot of money to spend on a new player these days is it?
