Upamecano ready for big move, Chelsea in Napoli talks, Cole gave Chilwell advice and Ziyech claim made in icchelseanews roundup..
Marina Granovskaia could look to bring Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland to the club in the January transfer window.
Haaland became one of the hottest properties in European football at Red Bull Salzburg in the first half of last season and That earned him a mega money move to Dortmund, where he continued the scoring, with his performances or the club firmly establishing him as one of the best in the game right now.
He has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League giants Manchester United, but it seems that we are ready to flex their financial power in the coming transfer windows and try to land the dream signing for Frank Lampard.
Lampard spent over £230million bolstering his squad during this summer’s transfer window, as He poached Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen and Hakim Ziyech from Ajax, but there’s one man missing from his dream front line, as reports on the DAILY EXPRESS WEBSITE have claimed we want Haaland to lead the line, and are ready to pay his £63 million release clause.
The reports adds, With Olivier Giroud’s Chelsea future looking increasingly uncertain, they will need to replace the France striker.
Hakim Ziyech boasts the “vision” to turn Chelsea back into Premier League title contenders, claims Cesc Fabregas.
Ziyech was one of the players that was signed in the transfer window, but had a very slow start to life in England as he needed to recover from injury, but over the last few weeks, he has proven himself to be a very effective player for the club
And Fabregas believes that Ziyech, along with fellow new boy Timo Werner, could fire the club into a race for the most prestigious of domestic prizes, he told 90min of Ziyech: “He’s a very good player. He has this vision that you need in a top team like Chelsea, who want to win and be champions.
“You could see that they were lacking ideas last season and maybe at the beginning of this season, but with Ziyech, you can see that he has this last pass.
“It’s not only that he sees it, it’s that he makes it right, at the right time. That’s the decision-making that we talk about nowadays.
“Why are coaches so tactical? Because they see the decision making of the players is not that good, so they always need to teach them what to do.
“Before, I believe that coaches were not as on top of the players as they are now, they felt that maybe there was not as much need because the players already saw it themselves, but I believe that Ziyech is one of these players.
“He makes things happen, things that the defenders don’t expect. They don’t expect the pass, you catch them sleeping and you have someone like Timo Werner making great runs in behind.
“I think this is where Chelsea could be so powerful this year.”
Chelsea and Napoli are reportedly in talks over a loan deal for Emerson Palmieri ahead of the January transfer window
He has never really made the impact at the club that many had hoped and has constantly been linked with a move away from the club, despite all the speculation, he has stayed at the club over the past few windows.
He has been linked with a move back to Italian football over the past few windows, and amid all the transfer speculation, and now Repubblica claims the Italy left-back, 26, could be set to join Tiemoue Bakayoko at the San Paolo this winter.
Emerson joined the club from Roma in January 2018 for £17.5m but has never really made the impact that he would have liked, and only recently admitted that he could actually leave the club in the transfer window.
As quoted by Calciomercato, the Italian defender said: “Here at the national team I play, I have fun and I’m fine.
“The coach told me that the best solution for me is to play, at Chelsea or in another team, let’s wait for the next two months and see what will happen.
“Unfortunately I’m not playing at Chelsea, but I’m calm, I think things can improve in London or in another place.
“There was some interest in me but not concrete things. I’d like to return to play in Italy but I can’t say if it will happen in January or in five years.”
Ashley Cole revealed Ben Chilwell asked for his advice on how to hit the ground running ahead of his Chelsea move.
After an impressive season with Leicester last year, we decided that they were prepared to pay the massive £50 million asking price over the summer and bring him to Stamford Bridge.
And Cole has opened up and told fans what Chilwell asked him before he completed the move to the Bridge, and And he believes Chilwell has followed his advice after asking ‘what do I have to do’ in order to hit the ground running.
‘I think coming into a young team probably helped him, but from minute one, he was hungry to prove that he was good enough,’ Cole told Sky Sports
‘That’s what he said to me, that he wants to come here, hit the ground running, ‘what do I have to do?’ ‘I said: “Listen, just keep working hard and want to play for the club, want to win,” and straight away, he’s come in and done that.
‘I think Chelsea look defensively better with him. Again, they have that better balance.
‘I think he can handle the ball in every area – defensively, in the middle-third, he can deal with it and of course, attacking-wise, he can cross, he can shoot, he can combine. He’s got it all.’
Chelsea transfer target Dayot Upamecano is ready to play for Bayern Munich, claims Former RB Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick believes
Upamecano has become one of the most in-demand young defenders in the game right now and has been attracting interest from all the Premier League’s big clubs, with Frank Lampard reportedly interested
However, it seems that Bayern will now fancy their chances of getting a deal done, after France international Upamecano was recently backed to become a world-class star by current Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann and his former boss Rangnick believes he is good enough for the European and German champions.
Bayern are likely to lose David Alaba and Jerome Boateng at the end of the season and will have to invest in their back line. Asked if he believes he would excel in Bavaria, Rangnick told Sport1: “Why not? Bayern know this player well, you can assume that. Physically, Bayern saw that in direct duels: no one will run away from him.
“He might still have one or two risky balls too many in a game, but he will certainly learn in the next few years.
“I got to know Upa and his family over many years. They not only make decisions that sound good to them in terms of his image, but they also make decisions based on the feeling of what is best for the player himself.”
If Upamecano keeps on putting in the kind of performances that he has been over the last few seasons, it will be an easy decision for big clubs to make an offer, simply because the lad will be worth the money.
We would love the guy right here
