Chelsea FC NewS: Bundesliga tells Chelsea he wants Prem move, Striker sent message about joining Chelsea, Blues open talks to sign defender
Guys here is a roundup of the top stories that we think you may have missed over the last 24 hours or so.
Chelsea target Jonathan David has put the Blues on red alert by revealing that he would “love” to play in the Premier League.
We may not be able to do any transfer deals right now because of the coronavirus outbreak, but that has not stopped speculation in the media suggesting that we are lining up a number of possible summer signings in order to improve this squad,
And one player that has been linked with a move to the Bridge now is David, who has been impressing over in the Bundesliga over the last few seasons and has become a hot topic for most clubs in the Premier League, who have reportedly sent scouts out on a regular basis to take a look at the ability of the young man.
Now, we have been left on alert after the £60 million rated David admitted that he is interested in playing in the Premier League, He told The Guardian: “I don’t really focus on that or think much about it.
“Right now I’m playing almost every minute of every game and that has really helped me get to the level that I need to be. I just need to take a good step where I can make sure I am getting enough time on the pitch to keep developing.
“I don’t want to go somewhere and just stay on the bench so it’s about taking the right step.
“I want to become one of the best strikers in the world. That’s my goal.
“The Premier League is the best in the world and most competitive so obviously that is somewhere I would love to play in the future.”
Frank Sinclair has claimed Luka Jovic may struggle to get in the Chelsea side if he signs in the summer transfer window.
It is no secret that Frank Lampard is keen to improve this side with some big time signings, and reports in the media have suggested he will indeed get the £200 million it will take to sign some top-class, big-time names players in the summer, with Jovic on the shopping list.
Jovic joined the Spanish giants last summer after an outstanding campaign with German side Eintracht Frankfurt in which he netted 10 goals in the Europa League including strikes in both legs of the semi-final against the Blues.
However, he has struggled for playing time in Spain with only four La Liga starts so far this season, and according to many reports in the media, he is all set to depart the Spanish giants at the end of the season, with Stamford Bridge his most likely destination.
But speaking to GentingBet, Sinclair said: “Luka Jovic is a very good player but when you look at centre-forwards, he’s pretty similar to Tammy Abraham in the way that he leads the line.
“Taking into consideration that he’s struggled to get into the Real Madrid team, if he can’t get into the Real Madrid team, will he be able to get into the Chelsea team and do well?
“I’d be quite reserved when it comes to Chelsea signing Jovic. Just because you’re leaving a club of the size of Real Madrid, it doesn’t automatically mean that you’re going to come to a club like Chelsea, settle in and score goals in the Premier League because it is a different ask for players that have come from abroad.”
Chelsea have entered into advanced talks with Porto about a summer deal for Alex Telles, reports have claimed.
The world is currently gripped by the Coronavirus outbreak that is shutting down pretty much every aspect of life, which has meant that there has not been much news to report coming out of the Stamford Bridge.’
But Frank Lampard knows that he needs to improve the side if he wants to get back inside the top four and then push on to challenge for a Premier League title and Champions League crown, and one area of concern for us is the defence, as it is not good enough to challenge the big boys in Europe,.
So Lampard is reportedly keen to sort that issues out with the possible signing of Telles, who has been very impressive for Porto over the last few seasons, and were handed a massive boost recently when Portuguese newspaper RECORD claim Telles is now being represented by famed agent Pini Zahavi – a man who has long-rooted ties at Chelsea.
He played a role in Roman Abramovich’s purchase of the club back in 2003 and has had a hand in a host of transfers for the club since then, while he remains on excellent terms with current hierarchy, and the reports suggests Telles will be hoping Zahavi can secure him a big-money move to the Premier League, with Porto willing to let him leave if his £35million release clause is met.
Now French Outlet PARIS UNITED have claimed that we are now in advanced talks with Porto about a possible £35 million summer transfer deal.
