Chelsea interested in Nkunku, Rudiger sends message and Adeyemi addresses rumours in Chelsea roundup..
Karim Adeyemi has the addresses all the rumours surrounding his future, with Chelsea linked with a potential move
The 20-year-old has scored 18 goals in 29 outings across all competitions, including three in the Champions League group stage, and is attracting all sorts of interest in his services.
The club are just one of a number of Premier League clubs that are reportedly eyeing up a possible deal for the highly-talented lad, who could command a fee well in excess of £60 million.
However, amid all the speculation, Adeyemi is non-committal on his future for now, though, and his only focus in the present is to help Salzburg finish the season as strongly as possible.
“As I’ve said many times, my focus is on Salzburg. Nothing has been decided,” he told reporters ahead of the Austrian side’s Champions League round of 16 first-leg clash with Bayern on Wednesday.
“What happens in summer happens in summer.”
The transfer window is many months away and Thomas Tuchel has time to look at the type of signings that will help improve this squad. Adeyemi is a talent that has a bright future and could be a great long-term investment for the Blues
There is alot of interest in the talented young man and he will many offers to take in. But honestly, the best thing for him right now would to stay put and continue his development in the Bundesliga
He is one for the future and we have plenty of time to try and get a deal done
Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has hinted that he wants to stay at the Bridge after revealing he wants to win the Premier League
Rudiger has been in the headlines alot over the past few months as there is alot of speculation about whether or not he will stay at the club, or leave to join the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus, Bayerun Munich or Juventus
It is no secret that the club, who could lose up to three defenders in the summer window, are very keen to make sure that he stays at Stamford Bridge as he has been in fine form this season
But those displays have only strengthened Rudiger’s belief that he should be one of the club’s top earners and he has an offer on the table from Real Madrid to move to Spain
To fend off all interest in the player, reports have claimed that the board have offered Rudiger a contract worth £250,000-a-week, and that’s before any signing-on fee.
And although many believe that he has already decided to leave the club, he has given the club a boost by admitting that he wants to win the Premier League: “Of course, I want to win the Premier League,” he said. “We had never won this trophy (the Club World Cup) in Chelsea’s history before. I’m very delighted that we didn’t give up, that we did our thing. We tried everything and won.
“I just want to help, I just want to be important and lead by example. This is the main thing. We all showed character against Palmeiras. None of us gave up.
“Thiago Silva gave away the penalty (for Palmeiras to equalise) but he didn’t lack anything. He continued and continued.
“And there was a great impact from the guys who came on from the bench, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Malang Sarr, Timo Werner and Saul Niguez. They all worked very hard.
“The Premier League is the toughest competition because Manchester City set a very high standard. We have to get to a point where we can go on a long marathon.”
Chelsea are interested in signing Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig this summer.
The 24-year-old has been in impressive form during the 2021-22 campaign, scoring 18 goals and registering 13 assists in 30 appearances in all competitions.
Nkunku managed seven goals and two assists in six appearances in the group stages of this season’s Champions League, and there has been a host of speculation surrounding his future.
We are believed to be interested in the Frenchman, who is capable of operating in a number of different positions in the final third of the field, as Thomas Tuchel looks to add some more quality to his squad.
The German has not been impressed with many of his star players this season, and it is widely believed that he will look to overhaul the squad in the transfer window.
However, the club will have a fight on their hands to sign Nkunku, as the talented young man has reportedly been told that he will not able to leave this coming summer window.
RB Leipzig director Oliver Mintzlaff was Speaking to Sky Deutschland, RB Leipzig chief Oliver Mintzlaff said: “He [Nkunku] will also play with us next season because of course he is a very important player.
“In football nothing is ever certain, but that’s our plan.”
The Director can say what he likes right now, but at the end of the day if Chelsea show interest, if the board make a big enough offer and Nkunku says that he wants to leave, we are sure that RB will let him leave
We are a club that need to be revamped in the summer, Thomas Tuchel needs the backing from the board to bring in players that will close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool
