£85 million star on way after Lampard sactions deal, Midfielder opens up after agreeing big Chelsea deal, Ajax stopper wants to sign with Chelsea,
Guys here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea news, gossip and transfer news from icchelseanews over the past 24 hours.
Frank Lampard has sanctioned a massive £85 million Chelsea move for winger Leon Bailey.
The current Premier League may be under threat, the Coronavirus may be on the lips of every person in the world right now, but there are still things going in behind the scenes in football as clubs prepare for next season.
Frank Lampard is no fool, he knows that he needs to delve into that transfer kitty during the summer window and continue splashing the cash in order to get this side playing for more than a top four spot and Champions league football, he needs to be challenging for titles guys.
And with all the speculation in the media suggesting a number of first team players could be leaving the club, it means that he will need to add some fresh meat to the attack when the transfer window opens up, and he has reportedly now set his sights on trying to secure a deal for Leon bailey.
Lampard was reportedly impressed by the players latest performances for the German side as the Jamaica international rounded off a brilliant evening for the German club by scoring his team’s third goal in a 3-1 win at Ibrox, although the return leg has been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, and Bayer Leverkusen are braced for offers for Bailey, who has made over 100 appearances for the club since signing from Genk in 2016, and would rather sell to a Premier League club than a direct rival in Bayern Munich.
Ajax stopper Victor Onana is keen to make the move to Chelsea during the summer transfer window.
There has been a lot of speculation in the media over the past few months which has suggested that Frank Lampard is keen to offload Spanish stopper Kepa in the summer after becoming frustrated at the young mans performances on a weekly basis, and that has led to speculation in the media suggesting that Lampard is keen to add a new stopper to the side, with Ajax ace Onana on the shopping list of the boss after establishing himself as one of the best stoppers in Europe.
Onana helped Ajax reach the Champions League semi-finals last season and also helped the Dutch side regain their title after a few years of trying, and his performances caught the attentions of Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United over the last couple of transfer windows, but it seemed that he had no desire to leave.
But amid big speculation that the we are prepared to meet his £50 million asking price, GOAL, have claimed that Onana is willing to make the move to our club in the summer, even if the club do not let the Spaniard leave at the end of the season.[the_ad id=”164″]
Look, we have said on many occasions that kepa is a young stopper that does have all the qualities to turn into a world class stopper over the next few seasons if given the chance to improve under Lampard.
But if Lampard is desperate to add a stopper to the side in the summer, then Onana could be a great choice, he is proven at the top level and has the ability to be a real star in the Premier League, but we will have a battle trying to secure a deal.
Young Chelsea midfielder Tino Anjorin has spoken about the strong sense of camaraderie he has found at the club after agreeing a new deal.
We now have one of the best academies in the game and under Frank Lampard, some of the best talents are heading to Stamford Bridge believing that they will be given a real chance in the Blues first team in the coming seasons.
We have been handing contracts to the young players at the club for the past few weeks, as they prepare for the future and it seems that another five-year deal will be on the horizon for the Blues, as Anjorin recently signed a contract with the club.
And in In an interview with the Independant,, Anjorin has spoken about the strong sense of camaraderie he has found as he has progressed through the levels at the club, he said: ‘[In the academy] we’re not friends, we’re like brothers. And when we go over to the first team, it’s very welcoming, it’s like a family.
‘Having players like Tammy [Abraham] and Mason [Mount], they know what it’s like being a younger player in the Academy. They look after you and give you what maybe they never had at my age.
‘Callum [Hudson-Odoi] is only a year above me. It’s relatable, so 100 per cent it makes you more confident knowing the chances are there.
‘I know if I keep working harder I can try and be at their level. I want to try and put myself in the same position that Reece [James] is in now. I want to be scoring, I want to be creating.
‘In five years time, I want to be a leader in the team, helping the younger academy kids to come through, where they can look up to me too and thrive as well.”
