Chelsea urged to sign Lukaku, Chelsea can sign Kounde for £56 million and Chelsea in Tomori talks in Chelsea latest…
AC Milan are in advanced talks with Chelsea regarding a permanent deal for Fikayo Tomori ahead of the summer window.
After failing to make any sort of impact under the guidance of Frank Lampard, Tomori was shipped out on loan during the January transfer window as he wanted to get more game time than he was sitting on the Bench at the Bridge.
Tomori did enough across 22 appearances to convince the Rossoneri that he is worth keeping around , and with the summer transfer window just around the corner, it seems that they are looking to get a deal wrapped up very soon, as the Goal website says that the Italians are now in talks with the club about a possible deal.
The report goes on to suggest that the Serie A heavyweights were made aware that it would cost them £26 million ($37m) to keep the 23-year-old in Italy, although The Rossoneri would like to lower that asking price, or pay in full over a series of instalments.
Said discussions have been delaying a definitive decision being made, with talks still ongoing.
Look, we are massive fans of Tomori and firmly believe that he will be a quality defender in the future, so the fact that the club will be looking to add another centre-back to the squad, they could save some money bringing the Englishman back.
But if the reports are true and he is going to stay at the Italians, it is a great move for him as they are one of the biggest clubs in the world and he would be at the ideal place to develop.
Chelsea have received a big transfer boost after reports claimed that Sevilla have put Jules Kounde up for sale at £56 million.
We are one of the clubs that are expected to challenge for big titles next season, and adding to the squad over the transfer window is something that Thomas Tuchel knows he must do.
That has led to alot of reports in the media over the past few months that the club are ready to battle the likes of Real Madrid and United to try and secure a transfer deal for Kounde.
Kounde is easily regarded as one of the finest young central defenders in the game right now and all the big clubs have been keeping a very close eye on his performances over the past 12-18 months.
And Mundo Deportivo write how his club won’t stand in his way amidst the ongoing financial problems in football.
Sevilla are prepared to cash in on their main starlet if they receive an offer in the region of £56million
Amid all the speculation, Kounde has recently opened the door to a potential move to one of the chasing clubs. and the 22-year-old, who is rumoured to cost around €70 million (£60m/$85m), hopes to join a team capable of competing for major trophies.
“I may have to change clubs this summer. I have not decided anything,” the France international said.
“My goal is, one day, to evolve into a great club to always try to progress, win trophies. To be able to start the season each year by telling yourself that the goal is win a particular trophy. I might have to move, but that’s not relevant today.”
On when he noticed he was becoming a major prospect, Kounde added: “I would say that perhaps when I arrived at Sevilla and started playing more and more, also with the arrival of the Champions League. It has always been something in my head. I have always believed in it, I have always worked for it. To have it.
“That objective in the sights meant that I was able to have the performances I did at Sevilla. Also thanks to this club that helped me a lot and my team-mates who always pushed me.”
Romelu Lukaku is ‘one of the biggest talents in the world’ and it makes sense to bring him back to former club Chelsea, according to Frank Leboeuf.
The Champions League winners want to strengthen their squad this summer as they look to mount an assault on the Premier League title and defend their European crown next season.
Thomas Tuchel has reportedly keen to bring in another striker to the squad, as Tammy Abraham and Oliviuer Giroud look set to leave in the transfer window, and the German boss is reportedly keen to bring Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge in order to fix a lack of prolificacy in front of goal
And when asked whether it makes sense to bring Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge, ex-Blues defender Leboeuf told ESPN: ‘It does, because Lukaku is an exceptional player and he proved it this season with Inter.
‘We all know he loves Chelsea football club so much. It was a dream for him to sign for the club when he was young.
‘Maybe it’s a curse for him, because he’s too emotional so he can’t be successful at Chelsea.
‘But he might come back for the third time and prove me wrong. I wish him the best if he does it.
‘He is one of the biggest talents in the world and he will prove it in the Premier League.
I’m sure he can serve Chelsea. We all know Chelsea have a problem to finish their actions and score goals.
‘He can be a plus for Chelsea for sure.’
