Dembele to sign? Abraham wants Chelsea move and Rudiger told to sign deal in Chelsea roundup…

It has been claimed that Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele has already agreed to join Chelsea at the end of the current season

The France forward, 24, has failed to agree a new contract at the Nou Camp, with his current deal set to expire this summer, and that has led to alot of speculation that he could come to the Premier League

The club are very much interested in getting some kind of transfer deal done, especially after the Spanish club told him he could leave the club during the January transfer window after failing to agree that new contract.

That suggested that we were preparing to offer him a massive contact at the end of the season to tempt him to Stamford Bridge on a massive deal, but it seems that he is already on his way

Sport via Sport Witness explain ‘everything indicates’ his agent has ‘already signed an agreement’ with another club. That club is believed to be the Champions League winners.

It’s claimed that from Barcelona, they are ‘betting on Chelsea’ to be the attacker’s next destination.

If the player were to join the Champions League winners, he will reunite with his former manager, Thomas Tuchel.

Xavi has reignited the career of Dembele at the Spaniards and has recently indicated that he wants to keep the French winger at the club beyond the season.

Speaking in a press conference, the Spaniard said: “Ousmane’s contract ends in June and we’ll see what happens. The decision to renew depends on him, but to me he’s a player I like.

‘I heard a lot of fake stories about him – it’s the opposite. He’s been a great professional, trust me.”

Trevoh Chalobah wants Antonio Rudiger to snub a move away from Chelsea this summer and sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge.

Rudiger has once again been brilliant for the club this season and is one of the biggest players at the club, and a reals fans favourite

But he has been in the headlines alot over the past few months as there is alot of speculation that he could be leaving the club at the end of the season after failing to agree a new contract, even though we have reportedly offered him a massive £250,000-a-week deal

That has led to rumours that both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are both interested in signing the German on a free deal, but amid the speculation, Chalobah has opened up and told the German to stay at the club

Chalobah told The Athletic: ‘When I was training with [former Chelsea boss] Antonio Conte that season I was in and out.

‘Toni’s from Sierra Leone as well, where I’m from, and when he first came my brother [Fulham midfielder Nathaniel] told him to look after me.

‘I used to go round his house, we’d chill, and every time I came over for training he’d get hold of me and help me.

‘He was the only one that season who believed in me and told me to keep going. The next year I went on loan and ended up going on loan three times, and after every season he kept telling me, “Keep going, keep going. I know you’re good enough to play for this football club”.

‘He kept me going and was a massive part of it.’

Asked what advice Rudiger has given him, Chalobah – who has made 21 appearances for Chelsea this season – added: ‘Just believe in yourself, really.

‘I knew I was good enough, I just needed a platform, and he said, “Your time will come, make sure you’re ready”. It came this season and I took it well.

‘He’s very straightforward. He’ll tell me how it is and what I need to do. He’ll speak to me like a grown adult, not a little boy.

‘For me, that’s what’s helped – it’s kept me on my toes. You know how aggressive he is on the pitch, and that’s how I want to be on the pitch as well.’

Pressed on Rudiger’s future and if he wants his team-mate to stay at the club, Chalobah smiled and replied: ‘Yes.’

Stunning reports have claimed that Roma striker Tammy Abraham wants a sensational move back to Chelsea in the summer

The Blues made the big decision in the summer to offload their academy graduate to Jose Mourinho in favour of using the £34million plus more to re-sign Lukaku, who established himself as the most dangerous striker in Italian football.

But his move has not quite worked out as mixed success with the infamous Sky Italia interview and his FIFA Club World Cup adventure telling the Belgian’s story so far on his Stamford Bridge homecoming.

He has not scored the goals that Thomas Tuchel would have liked and there has been alot of speculation in the media suggesting that the German boss is keen to bring in another forward.

Whilst Lukaku himself is still working to try and adapt to Thomas Tuchel’s system in west London, the clubs former number 9 has been thriving on the continent under a manager that wants him to become a ‘monster’ in front of goal

But according to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Abraham ‘hopes to return’ to Stamford Bridge in the future, and Abraham might get his wish in a year’s time with the clubs £68m buy-back option becoming active.

IcChelseanews View…

Look, Lukaku is a world class striker that is one of the very best in the game, so the fact that he has struggled to adapt to the club is strange. But even though Abraham has been brilliant at Roma, we cant see him back at the club

We will probably add a striker to the squad in the coming transfer window and it will be interesting to see just who they sign. But Abraham is a man that we do not see back at the club anytime soon

But you never know, we did not expect to see Lukaku make the move back to the Premier League
