£200m man to replace Lukaku, Boss admits Chelsea target wants move and Chelsea told to sign £70m Duo from Premier League rivals

Get the Chelsea word out there!

Kane replace Lukaku, Chelsea told to sign duo, Trippier wants move in IcChelseanews roundup…

There has been some stunning reports which have claimed Chelsea may replace Romelu Lukaku with Tottenham striker Harry Kane this month.

Signed by the club for a massive £97 million last summer, Lukaku has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the past few weeks after he came out and admitted that he is not happy at the Bridge.

That has led to him being dropped by Thomas Tuchel, omitted from the squad and with rumours suggesting that he could actually be sold over the next four weeks of the transfer window.

And if the Blues do decide to let him leave this transfer window, then the Daily Express website have suggested that we may opt to make a transfer move to try and sign Manchester City target Harry Kane.

City attempted to sign the England captain, but after chairman Daniel Levy stood form on an alleged £200m asking price, the deal never materialised.

But With Sky Blues boss Pep Guardiola claiming that City will not attempt to sign a striker in January, the door could be open for the club to test Spurs’ resolve, the reports claims.

A slow start to the campaign for Kane may have put some interested parties off and lowered his price-tag, which could make a swoop even more tempting for the Blues if they believe he could rediscover his best form at Stamford Bridge.

Look, Kane is one of the very best strikers in world football and clearly does not want to be at Tottenham any longer, so even though Spurs would not want to sell half way through the season, the right offer may actually get a deal done.

Antonio Conte is a man that does not take any shit and if he has an immediate striker lined up, he will not stand in the way of Kane leaving, even for a top four rival.

Diego Simeone has announced that shock Chelsea target Kieren Trippier wants to leave the club this transfer window.

The club have one of the very best squads in the Premier League and will be tipped to challenge Manchester City for that title, but a couple of injuries over the past few months could cause Thomas Tuchel some issues.

The German boss said himself at the start of the month that he was not planning a busy transfer window, but confirmation that Ben Chilwell needs surgery, and the recent injury to Reece James means that he may need to delve into that transfer kitty after all.

And According to the Guardian, we are considering a move for Trippier, who has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League in recent months.

Now, after Madrids game at the weekend, Simeone has opened up and admitted that the defender does indeed wish to leave the Spanish giants this transfer window, Simeone said: “We want him to stay – he’s a very important player.

“But nowadays, when a player wants to leave, you can’t force them to stay.”

Trippier is a very good player that is a big part of the Madrid side, so it has been a shock to see that he wants to leave such a big club, but the Premier League has that appeal.

It has been a shock to see that we are linked with a transfer move for the man, but at the end of the day, he would be a solid addition to the squad and bring some much needed quality.

It is probably unlikely that he will end up at the club, but he could be a player that adds to a squad that will go on and challenge, and probably win, a few trophies this season.

Stunning reports have claimed that Chelsea are now very much interested in acquiring the services of Raphinha from Leeds, would he be a good signing?

The transfer window has re-opened its doors once more giving clubs another opportunity to strengthen their respective squads, and with the fact that Chelsea need to reignite their season, Thomas Tuchel needs to fresh un the squad.

Manchester City are winning on a weekly basis, while we are not, and although they are still in that Premier League title race, their results have been too inconsistent over the past few months to give pundits cause to say they will be Champions by the end of the season.

And according to reports on the Daily Express website, Raphinha is a player that the club may look to sign over the next for weeks of business.

Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner have managed just nine goals between them in all competitions this season, and although they have impressed at times this year, Tuchel is not fully convinced that they have the quality to win titles

Raphinha, 25, managed six goals in his first season in the Premier League, and the Brazilian winger has already surpassed that tally in the current campaign after netting eight times.

He has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool over the past few months, as they need to cover AFCON, but with funds tight over at Anfield, they may not be looking to splash the £30,40 or even £50 million it could take to land the Brazilian.

Wow if this report is true and Raphinha is a player that we are interested in, he would be a great signing. He really should be at a bigger club.

Raphinha is destined to play for one of the big clubs in the Premier League, he has the quality on the ball and the charisma off it to be a star, would offer Tuchel something different in attack and bring in another goal threat, he would be a very good signing for the club.
