Havertz wants deal done, Coutinho adores Premier League, Havertz being teased, Gosens drops hint in icchelseanews daily roundup..
Phillipe Coutinho ‘adores’ the Premier League, his agent has told the likes of Chelsea.
Coutinho made the move to Liverpool just a few seasons ago expecting to be the immediate replacement for Andres Iniesta, but he did not live up to the expectations that Barcelona had of the Brazilian, and there is big speculation that he could be coming back to England.
And amid all the speculation, Kia Joorabchian explained that he and other agents are not sure how the transfer market will progress, but has admitted that Coutinho adores the Premier League.
“Because the Champions League runs until the 23 August, it’s going to be very difficult for players like Coutinho to make any commitments or moves before then,” he said.
“For him to make a commitment is very difficult.
“We’ve not kept it a secret that he wants to come back to the Premier League if he can.
“He adores playing in the Premier League and I think it’s one of his priorities, but he’s also not against staying in Barcelona so it’s very open.
“There’s a lot of genuine interest because he’s a great player, so there’s always interest.”
Asked if it would be a loan or if intersted clubs will be required to pay top money, Joorabchian said the market would dictate.
“I don’t envisage too many deals of that nature – 80 to 100 million. There will be a lot of 10 to 30 or 40million.”
Atalanta left-back Robin Gosens has got Chelsea fans very excited with his latest social media activity.
Now the transfer window is no officially open for the next ten weeks and there is alot of transfer speculation in the media suggesting that we are lining up a number of possible targets.
Frank Lampard does not need to spend alot of money to improve his current side, but he does need to add a couple of defenders to the side in order to turn this side from top four contenders to Premier League challengers.
And that has led to reports that they are interested in signing Gosens this summer in a deal that could be worth around the £50 million mark, a fee that Atalanta would very much accept.
Gosens, too, is open to a move and appears to already be keeping tabs on the club, with eagle-eyed fans spotting he had ‘liked’ a comment on Instagram from Werner.
Despite not following each other – he reacted to the German striker posting a picture from his first day at training, the Metro has reported.
And fans have been getting excited, ‘Man I’d be super psyched if he joined. It’s risky, but it’ll be glorious if it works out,’ wrote one fan
Another supporter suggested Werner’s post must have been recommended to Gosens, given that they do not follow each other, another replied: ‘Which means he’s actively looking at Chelsea related posts!’
Kai Havertz is understood to be eager to get his move to Chelsea sealed by next week following the Blues’ Champions League qualification.
The Premier League season is over and we have managed to secure themselves a Champions League spot for next season, meaning that Frank Lampard will be able to get the players that he seemingly desires.
And top of that shopping list of Havertz, who is easily one of the very best players in the Bundesliga and the man that could come in and help take this attack to another level next season.
Recent reports have claimed The German playmaker, 21, has to have agreed to a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge with the deal now “close”.
Now Sky Sports claim the club finishing in the top four to seal their place in next season’s Champions League is thought to have convinced Havertz to move to the club early next week, as Leverkusen will be playing in the Europa League.
Bild report that the Bundesliga value Havertz at £91million but we are hopeful of agreeing a lower price, and its expected that the final fee will be around £70m, plus potential add-ons.
Nadiem Amiri admits Bayer Leverkusen players have been teasing Kai Havertz about his proposed move to Chelsea.
We are seeking to land a whole load of players in the transfer window in order to challenge for that Premier League title next season, and there is big speculation that Havertz is on his way to the club.
Recent reports in the media have claimed that Havertz has already agreed personal terms, reported to be £140,000-a-week, and that he is no waiting for the two clubs to agree a fee over the next couple of days.
Now, amid all the speculation Amiri has opened up and admitted that the Leverkusen players are teasing Havertz about his possible move to the Bridge, but are also hoping that he makes the right decision this summer.
Asked about the speculation surrounding Havertz, Leverkusen midfielder Amiri told SPORT1: ‘We don’t want to talk about it at all. ‘In training we are very relaxed, nobody would go there and speak to him and ask: “What are you doing now?” ‘The boy is concerned with that himself.’
‘I hope he makes the right decision,’ Amiri continued.
‘There are always a few jokes and a few things said.
‘But we need Kai! We also have to leave his head alone.’
