Guys here is a roundup if our top Chelsea headlines, gossip and transfer talk from icchelseanews over the past 24 hours.
Chelsea have made contact with AC Milan about a summer deal for stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Despite not spending any money during the January window, a few days after the winter window closes, we managed to seal a £37 million deal to bring the highly-impressive and very creative Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech to the club, a move that has been praised by many in the media.
And now, it looks like that he is keen to sign a new stopper as there is a lot of talk that he is not impressed with the performances of Kepa, who has struggled between the sticks this season and has come under intense criticism from the boss for some of his more high-profile performances.
And having long been admirers of Donnarumma, the news that Milan could be willing to flog their highly-rated young goalkeeper will be music to chiefs’ ears, especially as reports on the TMW website have also suggested we are ready to pay him a massive £7 million-a-season to sign up.
According to prominent Italian reporter Nicolo Schira, the Serie A side are considering moving their goalkeeper on, in order to help balance their books and will accept a fee between the £60 and £70 million mark for one of the players that is tipped to become an Italian great.
The youngster has now already made 190 appearances for Milan, while amassing 16 international caps, with many claiming that he is the next Gianluigi Buffon.
Chelsea secured their passage into the FA Cup quarter-finals as they beat Liverpool 2-0 in an enthralling tie at Stamford Bridge.
Willian and Ross Barkley scored in each half on Tuesday night, as they inflicted back-to-back defeats on Jurgen Klopp’s side – who failed to bounce back from their first Premier League defeat of the season at Watford on Saturday.
For Frank Lampard, who won this competition four times as a player, it was a massive win and will help lift his players after some recent difficulties in the Premier League and Champions League. They will be in the hat for the last eight, watch the highlights below guys courtesy of BT SPORT
Olympique Lyonnais and French U21 box-to-box midfielder Houssem Aouar has addressed rumours that he could be heading to Chelsea in the summer.
After being nurtured by the club’s famous academy — which has been responsible for producing some of Europe’s current top players including Alexandre Lacazette, Karim Benzema, and Corentin Tolisso — Aoaur started to realize the value of his ability, and n 2015, aged 17, he made his first appearance for Lyon B.
Two years later the first team came calling, with then-coach Bruno Genesio handing him his professional as a late substitute in the UEFA Europa League against AZ Alkmaar, and his performance that night got many at the club excited about just how god this lad could become.
In the 2017-2018 season, in the absence of Tolisso who had just moved to Bayern Munich, he made 31 starts in both Ligue 1 and the Champions League, scoring seven goals and producing six assists — and the following season, his stock further increased as he made 44 appearances, scored seven goals, and made seven assists.
With the club seeking to add some much needed quality to their midfield and there willingness to give the talents in the game a chance to sign, reports have suggested that Frank Lampard has been impressed with Aouar this season and is ready to beat the likes of Juventus and Arsenal to a summer deal.
And amid all the transfer speculation linking the young man to Chelsea, he was quoted on TMW website: “For the time being, I really can’t think about anything but the present time. That means I’m only focused on what’s going to happen throughout the next few weeks, here with Lyon”.
