Chelsea get Grealish message, Chelsea offered Umtiti and Blues urged to sign 25-goal a season striker in Chelsea latest…
Agent Jonathan Barnett reveals his client Jack Grealish is happy at Aston Villa, but has admitted that there could be a deal in store for the likes of Chelsea.
Despite the fact that Jorginho has been playing some decent football over the past few weeks, there is still alot of rumours in the media about his long-term future at the London giants.
It is no secret that he has a dream to head back to Italian football, and it is no secret that Juventus are also keen on trying to secure a transfer deal, so the Italian has options if he does decide to leave the club, meaning that we need a new player.
And that has led to constant reports in the media that Grealish is a player that the club are very keen on trying to sign, especially as the midfielder has become one of the most sought after players in the Premier League over the past few months
And amid all the speculation linking the midfielder with a move to The Premier League giants, Barnett has admitted that Grealish is happy at Villa right now, but stopped short of admitting he will stay there in the summer
“He loves Villa, but I think we just have to wait to see how things pan out,” he was quoted on Sky Sports
“At the moment he is a Villa player and he has had no thoughts about anything else.
“We have to do what is best for Jack and for everybody else.”
We have said it before, if the club manage to secure a transfer deal for Grealish, it would be a great move for the player to make
Andy Cole has claimed he expects Chelsea to bring a new striker to the club this summer and move Timo Werner to the left on a permanent basis.
Thomas Tuchel is a man that knows he will need to improve in key areas of the pitch in the transfer window in order to wrestle that Premier League title from Manchester City next season, and adding a striker is high up on things to do.
There has been alot of speculation about what players Tuchel will look to sign in the window, and he is expected to have a big transfer kitty to play with, and Cole has claimed he expects the club to bring a new striker to the club this summer and move Werner to the left on a permanent basis
He was quoted on the Metro: ‘Werner works his socks off, he’s relentless. He never gives up, he would chase a piece of paper. ‘But I do genuinely believe that if Chelsea are going to win the Premier League next season, he [Tuchel] will buy a centre forward
‘He might play Werner on the left, he looks stronger there. He’s creative as well but as a centre forward you’ve got to be ruthless.
‘Where are Chelsea trying to get to? Should they buy a proven goalscorer now who is going to guarantee them 20 or 25 goals and win them the Premier League next season?
‘When you’re trying to win major honours you have to have someone who is scoring 20 or 25 goals a season.’
This squad are one of the best in the Premier League right now, so if Tuchel can get that world class striker that will add 30-40 goals a season to the attack, they will be the team to watch next season.
Long-term Chelsea target Samuel Umtiti has been offered to the Premier League by Barcelona.
It is no secret that Barcelona are one of the greatest teams in world football right now and are only a handful of sides that are able to pay massive wages to superstars like Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique and Antoine Griezmann.
However, it is no secret that Barcelona are a club that are in debt and they will be looking to offload a number of players in the summer transfer window in order to generate some funds in order to sign their own transfer targets.
And according to reports on the Sky Sports website, they no longer wish to keep hold of Umtiti and have offered him to the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, United, Tottenham and Chelsea for a bargain price of just £20 million.
umtiti is rated very highly across Europe and has been linked with a move to the Premier League on many occasions, but he has tried to prove that he has the ability to be a Barcelona player, without really being given a real shot at that chance.
Umtiti may not be playing his best football at Barcelona, but at the right club, he could be a massive signing and if any of the clubs linked do decide to pay £20 million to get a deal done, he would be well worth the money.
We may not need him and would like to see a much more quality player arrive, but he would add some depth to the squad right?
