Grealish could be next Gazza, Kepa could prove people wrong and Alli move to be made in icchelseanews roundup…
Chelsea target and Aston Villa star Jack Grealish can become the Paul Gascoigne of his generation.
Over the past 12 months, Grealish has been developing very nicely at Aston Villa and has become one of the most talked about players in the Premier League, with his performances even earning him a regular starting spot in the England National side.
We have been linked with a move for the midfielder as reports have suggested that Frank Lampard has been impressed with the performances of the Englishman, and United legend Bryan Robson is convinced that Grealish has what it takes to be the next Gazza of his generation, and believes it all does not have to end in tears for the Aston Villa star the way it did for Gazza.
England legend Robbo declared on the SUN: “No English player in recent years has excited me as much as Grealish does. It’s the way he glides past people, his range of passing, he’s so pleasing on the eye.
“Grealish is always on the front foot, always looking to create. It’s what Gazza loved doing, using his ability to go past defenders on both sides, scoring great goals, pleasing the crowd. And some of Grealish’s goals have been outstanding.
“You can see that, just like Gazza, he loves what he’s doing in being able to manipulate the ball.
“Grealish has got that natural ability the same as Gazza. It’s what sets them apart from the rest.”
Marina Granovskaia could surprise Chelsea fans in the January window and make a surprise move for Dele Alli.
Now we all know that the club spent some serious money in the transfer window and acquired the likes of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz to add to their already exciting attack, but it seems that Frank Lampard may not stop there4.
Lamps has a number of fringe players at the club that he may decide to sell in the coming window in order to add some depth to the squad, and has been linked with all sorts of players over the last couple of months.
And one player that has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent months is that of Alli, the Spurs star that is failing to get any game time under boss Jose Mourinho, who is not happy with his work-ethic.
Alli’s talent is being seriously wasted at Tottenham as he sits on the sidelines under Jose Mourinho, and A move across London would be a simple way to play regular football again, and he would add the fighting spirit Lampard has felt his side have lacked at times.
And according to reports on the Daily Express website, Transfer guru Granovskaia may sanction a possible move for Alli in order to give Lampard an extra push towards that Premier League title.
Kepa Arrizabalaga remains capable of proving “everybody wrong” at Chelsea, claims Asmir Begovic, amid speculation he will leave the club.
It is no secret in the media that Frank Lampard is not a massive fan of Kepa and wanted to make sure that we managed to secure a new stopper in the transfer window, with the club forking out just £27 million for Edouard Mendy.
That has led to alot of speculation that Kepa will not be one of the players that Lampard looks to sell in the coming transfer windows in order to raise some funds to continue adding to his already impressive squad.
Begovic admits that things have not worked out as hoped for Kepa but he believes that the under-fire keeper will silence his critics at some stage, be that at Stamford Bridge or elsewhere.
He told TalkSport: “I don’t think it’s gone to plan for everyone.
“These situations are never straightforward. If you spend a big transfer fee it doesn’t mean everything is going to work out; there are a lot of factors into making a move work and making an impact at a club.
“Mendy has come in and done really, really well, I think he’s really solidified that position.
“He’s been impressive, he’s been a joy to watch to be honest and he’s someone I really enjoy watching.
“But can Kepa still prove everybody wrong? Possibly.
“I think Kepa is a really good goalkeeper, he played really well in Spain before his move to Chelsea and it’s obviously been a bit of a tricky time for him.
“He’s got really good quality and I’m sure he’ll be a huge success, whether it’s at Chelsea or somewhere else.
“When you have that equality it’s only going to be matter of time before things turn around for him again in a positive way.”
