Frank: Sign £100 million powerhouse, Chelsea ‘offered’ chance to bring in new striker, Lampard told to sign outstanding Premier Legaue star
Guys here is a roundup of our top stories from the past 24 hours.
Chelsea should sign Kalidou Koulibaly if we want to get back challenging for titles again
Frank Lampard has been able to delve into the clubs transfer kitty and add a few players to the squad this transfer window that will add some experience, and quality in the right areas of the pitch.
And one name that will be high up on the shopping list of boss is that of Kouliably, who is easily regarded as one of the finest central defenders in Seria A, and around Europe
Strong, classy and composed, the 28-year-old is rightly considered world-class and would be a major statement of intent from Lampard in his quest to get the club back challenging for more than a top four spot.
Koulibaly has been outstanding for Napoli over the past few seasons and his performances has made him one of the best central defenders in the game, with many believing that only Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk is better than Koulibaly.
It has been reported on many occasions that Napoli do not want to sell one of their biggest players and will only do business for the powerhouse if their massive asking price is met by a chasing club.
However, money talks in football these days and if we do go in with that £150 million transfer kitty and offer over £100 million for Koulibaly, Napoli will be more inclined to try and do business with the Blues.
If he is to sign big time players, then he should start with the signing of Koulibaly as he could be the leader that the club are seeking, especially as they need to add a bit more experience to that back-line.
We need to close the gap on the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, and even though we have some exciting talent, there is nothing like adding a world class defender to the squad that will send statements to the rest of the League.
Reports have claimed Chelsea have been offered the chance to sign Krzysztof Piatek this month.
Now the whole world knows that ewe were banned from trying to sign any players during the summer transfer window and had to go into this season with the current squad they had, but after fighting the transfer ban, we managed to get the ban overturned and were able to sign players once again, which managed to get many fans very excited for this transfer window.
Now Tammy Abraham has been brilliant this season and has been leading the Blues attack with such power and ability, despite his tender years, but behind him there is a real issues in depth at Chelsea, as Muchy Batshuayi is hit and miss, and Olivier Giroud is seemingly destined for the exit signs at Stamford Bridge.[the_ad id=”164″]
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, if Frank Lampard offloads Olivier Giroud to Inter Milan this month then they may bid for the striker at rivals AC, with reports suggesting Stefano Pioli’s side are reportedly demanding £25million for the 24-year-old,, and will not accept a loan deal.
Piatek has the power and quality to make a real difference to this side, and they should most definitely SIGN HIM UP!
Chelsea have been urged to wrap up a deal for Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish.
We have been in the transfer headlines for the past few months after reports broke the news that Frank Lampard IS ABLE to sign players this transfer window in order to help the squad.
That has, of course, led to all sorts of speculation about whom could come into the club, who could leave the club, and what superstar signing that Lampard will seek to improve his very young side.
However, there has also been some shock rumours in the media that Villa midfielder Grealish could also be on the radar of Lampard after impressing during his first season back in the Premier League. His performances over the past few months has also caught the attentions of the biggest clubs in the Premier League, but with the club seeking to improve key areas of the pitch, Alan Hudson has told the hierarchy to make a move.
‘I am his biggest fan,’ Hudson told CaughtOffside. ‘Grealish is the most outstanding attacking midfield player in the game at this moment. A player who goes past people and scores goals.
‘The bottom line is Chelsea haven’t got anyone since (Eden) Hazard left who has the fans on the edge of their seats. Jack Grealish would be that man.’
Look, we are fans of Grealish and believe he has done great things for Villa this season, but the amount of midfield talent that we have already, we would rather than Lampard spent money on working on areas of the pitch that need some serious investment.
