Chelsea sign Mbuyamba, Izzy Brown deal done, Chilwell message sent and Reguilon prefers Premier League move in IcChelseanews roundup….
Sergio Reguilon’s future remains unclear, but the Chelsea target reported prefers a move to the Premier League.
It is no secret that Frank Lampard is keen to splash the cash a little more to improve key areas of the pitch and adding a new left-back to the side is high up on his list of things to do this summer.
Wehave been linked with a move for Ben Chilwell, but with Leicester keen to keep hold of the Englishman and sticking a massive £80 million asking price on his head, we are looking at cheaper alternatives to the Englishman.
And earlier reports have claimed that we have held advanced talks with Real Madrid for the services of Reguilon, who has been impressing in La Liga with Spanish giants Sevilla over the past 12 months.
Now Spanish publication AS claim that we are leading the race for his signature as he wants to move to the Premier League and we can offer Champions League football.
Amid all the speculation, Reguilon has opened up and admitted that he doe snot know what the future hold and where he will be this transfer window: “I don’t even know where I’m going to play next season,” Reguilon admitted in an interview with Muchodeporte.
“I have no idea, I have to assess all the options that we have on the table.”
Chelsea have officially confirmed the signing of Xavier Mbuyamba from Barcelona on a free transfer.
They have been linked with some big names over the past few weeks, and fans are hoping for some big time players to arrive, but twe will also be keeping an eye out for some of the best talents in the game.
Mbuyamba moved to the Nou Camp last summer from MVV Maastricht in his homeland but has not got the kind of game time that he had been hoping for, with his representative confirming he was already looking to continue his development.
But he has now agreed to make the move to the Bridge as the 18-year-old centre-back has signed on a free transfer until 2023, but is likely to play youth football for the Blues or be shipped out on loan in the immediate future as he is not ready to make an impact on the first team just yet.
We announced on their club website: “Chelsea Football Club can also confirm the signing of Xavier Mbuyamba from Barcelona.
“The 18-year-old signed a professional contract at Cobham earlier this week and will join our development squad ahead of preparations for the new campaign.”
Mbuyamba is certainly a player that could develop very nicely and the fact that we have snapped him up from Barcelona is a massive achievement.
Chelsea target Ben Chilwell is one of the best three left-backs in the world , according to Liverpool ace Andy Robertson.
We have been heavily linked with a transfer move to try and acquire the services of Chilwell this summer, as Frank Lampard seeks to improve his back-line and add a bit more quality to the side.
recent reports have suggested that we are on the verge of paying a massive £80 million to secure a deal for Chilwell, which will be a world record, despite many people feeling that he is not worth that kind of money just yet.
And amid all the speculation, Robertson has opened up and claimed that Chilwell is one of the best left-backs in the game: “I think Alphonso Davies, already world-class but he can only get better,” the Reds defender told BT Sport.
“Don’t expect me to be doing that [Davies’ assist vs Barcelona] any time in a hurry.
“That was just incredible. It probably took five or six of them out of the game with one passage of play.
“Phenomenal player, somebody I enjoy watching and I think the whole world’s enjoying watching him at the minute and I’m not different.
“Ben Chilwell I love watching in the Premier League.
“Then I would say Jordi Alba, the more experienced one of the three I would say, maybe coming near the end of his career, but what a career he’s had.
“Him and Marcelo probably took left-backs to a whole new level.”
Chelsea’s Izzy Brown has joined Sheffield Wednesday on a season-long loan, the Blues have confirmed.
There has been so much speculation about the possible signings that we could make this transfer window, that there have been many that have forgotten that there are also players that could leave the club, either on a permanent basis or on short-term loan deals.
And one such player is that of Izzy Brown, who is very highly-rated here but has been unable to make any sort of impact on the first-team over the seasons, and has been shipped out on numerous occasions.
The 23-year-old, who can be deployed out wide, in the number 10 role or up front, is Wednesday’s third summer signing, joining Fisayo Dele-Bashiru and Chey Dunkley at Hillsborough to bolster Garry Monk’s squad.
The move to S6 will be the seventh loan spell of Brown’scarrer, and his fourth spell in Yorkshire, having also played for Rotherham United, Huddersfield Town and Leeds United
And upon making the loan move to Wednesday, Brown has opened up and admitted just how delighted he is that a deal was managed to get struck, and he cannot wait to get started for such a massive club.
The 23-year-old said on social media: “Delighted to have completed my move to SWFC for the season.
“A massive club with a great history and I can’t wait to get going in a few weeks @swfc.”
Good move for the lad as this move will show if he is able to play at a very good level.
