Guys here is a roundup of the latest news, gossip and transfer talk from us that you may have missed over the last few hours.
Chelsea have been urged to make a move for Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana during the summer window by Troy Deeney
Right now, the whole worlds headlines are dominated by the coronavirus outbreak that is killing thousands of peoples, which means many of the footballing headlines are getting missed by many of the fans out there, but there has been alot said about the future of Lallana.
Despite being a firm fans favourite at the club, there is alot of speculation the media which has suggested that this will be last season under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp, and will be let go in the summer to make some room for a possible summer arrival.
Lallana is out of contract in the summer, with Liverpool not thought to be keen in extending his current deal and that has prompted interest from Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta while high-flying Leicester are also said to have made an approach to sign him. But Deeney believes other Premier League clubs should be in the hunt to land the former Southampton man, clubs like us.
He told The United Stand: ‘I think they’re a phenomenal team. I do look at teams like Liverpool and go, “where do you improve?”. ‘Lallana they’re letting go now – I was just chatting about this with my mates in our group chat – Lallana walks into 90% of teams.
‘Other than Man City, he could play for Man City but I think they’re overpopulated… you would take him at United. He’d be in the squad and 100% he improves the squad. ‘Lallana can play anywhere across the front line. Tottenham would take him, Everton… Chelsea, yeah.’
Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud could be set to extend his stay in the Premier League despite looking for a move away in January.
There has been a lot of transfer speculation in the media over the past few weeks about the imminent departure of striker Giroud, who has become very unhappy in the side this season after falling behind Tammy Abraham in the pecking order.
Abraham has proved himself to be a top Premier League striker, leading the clubs scoring charts in the Premier League this season, and rather than sit on the bench on a weekly basis, Giroud has shown a desire to depart the club for pastures new.
There was even speculation in the media that he was all set to leave the club during the January window, but with the club unable to sign a new striker, and Abraham picking up a serious injury, it meant that Lampard needed the Frenchman to stay put until at least the end of the season.
But the 33-year-old French striker has started to become a big part of the plans at Stamford Bridge, meaning that he is now needed in the side and recent reports have suggested that he is in talks to sign a new deal at the club.
Now his agent has opened up and admitted that he could now decide to stay for another season, His agent Vincenzo Morabito told Calciomercato: “Giroud was an opportunity in January but now, given that the championships could also be played in June and July, he could decide to stay at Chelsea for another year.
“However, everything is still uncertain, given the general situation which, in my opinion, may have cleared up in a few weeks, between the end of April and the beginning of May the picture could be more complete.”[the_ad id=”164″]
Chelsea have been in the headlines alot over the past few days and we have some big stories in the video below.
We all know that the Premier League season has been stopped and many fans are frustrated about whether or not the season will start up or not, but there has been some breaking headlines that may interest many fans.
Frank Lampard knows he needs to do some business otherwise he may struggle to get the club back inside the top four spots next season and then pushing on to challenge for more than a top four spot, but There is some big news IN THE VIDEO below about the possible arrivals of Raul Jimenez, Philipp Coutinho and Luka Jovic.
Mason Mount has admitted he is “buzzing” to play alongside Hakim Ziyech at Chelsea next season.
We may have been linked with some big players during the winter transfer window in January, and fans may have not seen the signings that many would have liked, but soon into February we made the shock move to complete a deal for Ziyech.[the_ad id=”164″]
Ziyech is regarded as one of the most creative and exciting players in Europe right now and has been one of the main reasons why Ajax have been so successful both domestically and in Europe over the past few seasons.
The 26-year-old will make the move Stamford Bridge in the summer after his £37million move from Ajax was agreed earlier this year, which has got many fans excited to see just what he will bring to the club next season and now Mount has admitted that he is also excited.
When asked if he was looking forward to playing with Ziyech, Mount said on THE SUN: “Yeah. So two years ago I was in Holland on loan so I knew a bit about him then and obviously how good of a player he is.
“So obviously it’s another amazing, world-class player joining the club.
“So yeah buzzing to work with him, train with him and hopefully play with him.
Landing Ziyech early in the summer was a very good bit of business by the club and he should add some more creativity to the side, especially as they have lacked that world class player since Eden Hazard departed the club.
World class signing for an absolute bargain, WELL DONE!
