Lamps has Barca dream, Grealish message sent, Caicedo could be wonderful signing and staff worried over Rice in Chelsea news roundup…
Frank Lampard has been told that possible transfer signing Moises Caicedo could be better than Ngolo Kante and that he would be a wonderful signing
Caicedo has made 31 appearances for Independiente, scoring six goals. He made his international debut for Ecuador in October and has gone on to earn four caps since.
We have been heavily linked with a move for the young man as they watch his performances from a distance, due to the fact that COVID -19 is stopping the scouts from doing their job properly.
But that has not stopped reports in the media suggesting that we have already been in touch about a possible deal for a man, that South American expert Tim Vickery has hailed as a possible wonderful signing for the Blues.
“A year ago, he was talking about Kante of Chelsea being his role model and he is already more than that,” the South American football expert told talkSPORT.
“In say, a 4-2-3-1, he is like that second man in that line of two so he can defend, but he can also bomb forward. He’s timing his runs very well, he’s cool in possession and he seems to have the whole lot.
“I think he is a wonderful, wonderful signing.”
Chelsea staff are reportedly doubtful over the potential signing of Declan Rice this transfer window
Rice has been a player that has been in the transfer headlines alot over the past 12 months as the whole of the Premier League know that he is developing into one of the best holding midfielders in the League.
We are the club most linked with a transfer move for the England International, with constant reports in the media suggesting that he is the number one transfer target for Frank Lampard.
However, the latest reports in the media have revealed that some on the staff are very doubtful that Rice is worth the money, and are doubtful that he has the quality to make this Midfield much better than it already is
David Orstein told the Athletic’s YouTube channel: “This [Rice] is a target driven by Lampard and there are some at Stamford Bridge who harbour reservations, including over whether Rice has corrected certain perceived weaknesses that contributed to the decision to release him from their academy as a teenager.
“And also, the sure scale of finance it would take to get him out of West Ham.”
Red Bull Salzburg striker and Chelsea target Patson Daka has backed himself for big things in the future.
We are being linked with all sorts of players this month as there is constant speculation Frank Lampard feels that he needs to add a bit more fire-power to a side that has been struggling to find the back of the net.
Daka has started the current season in red-hot form, scoring 15 goals in 17 matches in all competitions for Red Bull Salzburg, and he has opened up and told his prospective buyers that he could be as good as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
“To see our big brothers like Aubameyang, Salah, Mane, it’s something that gives me the dream that I can also make it,” Daka told BBC Sport. “I can be like them. They are my inspiration, knowing that they also come from Africa.
“I think when people are making those kinds of comparisons, it’s great, looking at the status of Sadio Mane, the kind of football he plays and the kind of person that he is.”
“The most vital thing that I’ve noticed is that the club [doesn’t] focus much about receiving big money for players. They’re more concerned about the development of the player.”
Daka’s national team coach Milutin Sredejovic agreed with his star forward’s assessment that big things lie ahead.
“I would say he’s on the road to replace what Samuel Eto’o once was in representing Africa and African football,” Sredejovic said. “He could be compared to Sadio Mane or Samuel Eto’o, with the level of skill and speed that he has. With the sense for space, sense of positioning, in the right place at the right time.”
Guillem Balague has told Chelsea fans that Guillem Balague is keen to manage Barcelona one day.
Lamps spend some serious money in the transfer window, brought in some top-level players and should be challenging for that top four spot, but he isnt and is in real danger of losing his job if he cannot get the results back on track.
But according to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague, Lampard has a long-term target of managing in Spain and in particular at Barcelona, as he never fulfilled his dream of playing for the Spanish giants during his playing days
Lampard was linked several times with a switch to Spain and to Barcelona and Real Madrid in his playing days, but he stayed put in England before heading out to America.
“His dream is to train in La Liga and do what he couldn’t do during his days as a player,” said Balague on Lampard on Esport3
“He would like to sit in the dugout at the Nou Camp and coach Barca in the not too distant future.”
He needs to get things right before looking to the future because with the squad that he currently has, he should be picking up wins on a weekly basis guys.
This side are one of the best and most exciting in the Premier League, there is no doubt about that, so if his dream is to manage Barca one day, great! Just make sure that he leaves Stamford Bridge with a few trophies in his cabinet
Mr Abramovic took a real risk bringing him to the club last season and he needs to repay that faith with success, we are a big club with big dreams!
We should be winning games and winning trophies on a yearly basis guys
