Here is a roundup of the top Chelsea news and gossip that we think you guys may have missed –

Former CHELSEA star Frank Leboeuf has advised the club to sign Nantes striker Mostafa Mohamed.

Reports in the media that we could try and make a move for Victor Osimhen in the January window, a man that they wanted to sign in the summer window and a striker that is easily regarded as one of the best in the game.

He has been in contract talks with Napoli for quite some time now, but has been unable to agree a new contract as the Italians are playing hard-ball and do not want to offer him the kind of deal that he feels he fully deserves.

However – it has been revealed in recent days that Osimhen is closing in on signing a new contract with Napoli – meaning that it will be very difficult for us to get a deal done for the man, and the Blues might look for another striker in the winter transfer window.

Now Lebeouf has asked the Blues to sign Mohamed, who is currently playing for the Serie A side and has scored five goals in 12 matches this season.

“Chelsea need a striker and an experienced midfielder. I said last season that Mitrovic would be good—he’s not world-class, but he’s a leader and a fighter. Victor Osimhen is having problems at Napoli, and maybe CHELSEA can go for him in January. There’s also Nantes’ Mostafa Mohamed; I think he could do a good job.”

There are so many players linked with a move to Stamford Bridge – but the board need to make the right decision and sign an elite striker that can make an immediate impact on the side.

RAMSDALE BOOST – 

Mikel Arteta has failed to rule out the departure of Aaron Ramsdale amid speculation that both CHELSEA and Newcastle are keen.

David Raya has usurped Ramsdale as Arsenal’s No 1 since the 1-0 win over Everton in September and the club is set to activate an option to make his loan move from Brentford permanent.

Ramsdale featured in the opening four games of the season for Arteta and co. But David Ryaa has started to establish himself in that Arsenal side and there is a feeling that Arteta believes the Spaniard is the way forward.

That has led to some stunning reports in the media which have claimed that we and Newcastle are very much interested in a deal to sign Ramsdale in the January window if he pushes for a move away from the Emirates.

Arsenal manager Arteta does not want to lose Ramsdale in the upcoming window, but he did not rule out a possible transfer either as he claimed that he cannot stop anyone from leaving the club.

Speaking to reporters, the Spaniard said: “I want Aaron with us. I am very happy to have two very, very good goalkeepers. We want to be better, so we want to add to what we already have. That’s the intention that we have.

“I cannot tell you that any Arsenal player is not going to leave in January. Or he is to stay here for the next three years. I won’t say that no player is going to go to Newcastle. Or no member of the staff either. I won’t say it. If you say yes or no, I won’t say it.

‘I cannot guarantee that nobody is going to be leaving in January. For Newcastle or any other club. So it is a no.”

FERGUSON CLAIM MADE – 

Brighton star Evan Ferguson has been making waves in the football world with his impressive performances and goal-scoring prowess, and he could be the next £100 million signing reporter Iomie Stanley has claimed.

He told icfootballnews: ‘One of the most compelling reasons for CHELSEA to pursue Ferguson is his exceptional talent and potential. At just 10 years old, he has already demonstrated a level of maturity and skill that belies his age. His ability to score goals with both feet, excellent aerial prowess, and a keen eye for positioning make him a formidable force in front of goal.

‘Furthermore, Ferguson’s playing style aligns well with Chelsea’s philosophy of attacking, possession-based football. His versatility allows him to play as a central striker or on the flanks, adding depth to Chelsea’s attacking options.

‘The Irish youngster’s physical attributes also make him a valuable asset for Chelsea. Standing at an impressive height with a strong build, Ferguson has the strength to hold off defenders and create space for himself and his teammates.

‘His presence in the box during set-pieces could add another dimension to Chelsea’s attacking prowess, providing additional goal-scoring opportunities from corners and free-kicks.

‘In addition to his on-field qualities, Ferguson’s mentality and work ethic have been widely praised by coaches and teammates alike. Chelsea, a club that values professionalism and commitment, could benefit from having a young player who is not only talented but also dedicated to constant improvement. Ferguson’s willingness to learn and adapt to different playing styles could make him a seamless fit into the Chelsea dressing room.

‘From a strategic standpoint, signing Evan Ferguson aligns with Chelsea’s emphasis on building for the future. The club has a history of nurturing young talents and integrating them into the first team successfully.

‘While there might be other suitors for Evan Ferguson’s signature, Chelsea’s reputation, resources, and track record of developing young talents could give them a competitive advantage in securing the services of this rising star.

‘If the transfer materializes, it could be a defining moment for both the club and the player, setting the stage for a successful partnership that benefits Chelsea’s immediate and long-term objectives.’
