Here is a roundup of todays Chelsea news, gossip and transfer news from IcChelseanews.
Chelsea are lining up a move for Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic, but would he be a worthy replacement for Eden Hazard?
Hazard has been heavily tipped to pack his bags and sign for Real Madrid after the current season finishes, with reports suggesting he wants a fresh challenge and a better chance to win the Champions League and Ballon D’or.
And recent reports have claimed we are eying possible replacements for the Belgian, with the likes of Ousmane Dembele, Gareth Bale and Nabil Fekir all linked with a possible move to Stamford Bridge in deals that would be in excess of £100 million.
But there is also reports which have claimed he will look to Dortmund sensation Pulisic, as his immediate replacement, with the talented American tipped to become a global superstar after impressing on a number of occasions of the Bundesliga giants.
It has been claimed we will offer cash-plus Alvaro Morata in a bid to land the American if Hazard does in fact leave, as the Spanish striker has not fulfilled the potential many expected despite his recent run of form in the side.
Pulisic gets into extremely dangerous positions in the box and has a knack for the killer pass, and he is used to playing a high-tempo, fast-paced and attacking football that current Blues boss Maurizio Sarri employs, and which made him an attractive prospect to Roman Abramovic.
But it is not just his creativity, raw pace and drive to take players on that is one of his main featured, as his decision making in the final third and his ability to score goals is also an attractive proposition for Chelsea. (Read the full article here)
Fresh Reports have again claimed Chelsea transfer target Isco is looking to leave Real Madrid in the near future.
The highly-rated Spaniard has been in the transfer headlines for some time now as he simply cannot get a regular starting spot in the Madrid side, with his time at the Bernabeu plagued by injuries and the continued good form of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.
And he has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in the past few transfer windows, with owner Roman Abramovic a big fans of the Spaniards quality and ability.
Now reports on Spanish website AS, Isco is upset with Real Madrid and temporary boss Phil Solari for the lack of confidence and game time, having played less than under former boss Zinedine Zidane last season.
The report goes on to say he would also be ready to listen to offers in the January transfer window, with some suggestions that he’s already received a few proposals.
However, despite his lack of game time and his frustration with his time on the bench, Madrid will not want to sell the 26-year-old on the cheap and will demand a fee close to the £80 million mark. (Click here to read full article)
Watford star Roberto Pereyra admits he is thrilled to be linked strongly with signing for Chelsea this coming January transfer window.
Pereyra has caught the attentions of boss Maurizio Sarri this season with a number of fine performances for the Hornets and has already netted five goals in the Premier League this season.
Sarri knows that admiring glances from Spanish giants Real Madrid for star man Eden Hazard is turning the Belgians head, especially since the £200 million rated winger has ‘dream’s to one day make the move to La Liga and play on a regular basis at the Bernabeu.
Pereyra’s time with Juventus is understood to have added to the clubs belief he could thrive at Stamford Bridge and the winger has fuelled speculation that he could make a move after admitting he is flattered by the interest of Sarri.
He was quoted on the Sky Sports website: “Now I hope to keep going like I am now, with a club like Chelsea mentioned. It’s nice that you talk about a team that is so fond of me.” (Click here to read full article)
