Chelsea have Rice plane, Boateng left surprised, Chelsea in Balde talks and Emerson admits he could leave in icchelseanews roundup..
Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri has opened up on his future as he revealed he could leave the club in January.
With all the players that Frank Lampard signed in the simmer transfer window, there are now a number of players at the club that are no longer needed at the club, and Palmieri is one of those players.
He has never really made the impact at the club that many had hoped and has constantly been linked with a move away from the club, despite all the speculation, he has stayed at the club over the past few windows.
He has been linked with a move back to Italian football over the past few windows, and amid all the transfer speculation, he has come out and revealed that he could finally depart the club in the coming window.
As quoted by Calciomercato, the Italian defender said: “Here at the national team I play, I have fun and I’m fine.
“The coach told me that the best solution for me is to play, at Chelsea or in another team, let’s wait for the next two months and see what will happen.
“Unfortunately I’m not playing at Chelsea, but I’m calm, I think things can improve in London or in another place.
“There was some interest in me but not concrete things. I’d like to return to play in Italy but I can’t say if it will happen in January or in five years.”
Chelsea have reportedly made an approach to Barcelona youngster Alejandro Balde about a possible transfer to Stamford Bridge.
We are always looking out for the best young talents in the game and have a habit of nabbing the rising stars of the game in hope that they can develop them into the perfect player in the coming seasons.
And According to Sport, we have now approached Balde and have already entered into discussions with his ‘surroundings’ as they look to lure him to England.
Balde is one of the most exciting talents at the Camp Nou, and he is not be too far away from playing in the Barcelona first-team, where he would be getting the chance to play with some of the greatest players in the game right now.
But the reports suggests he may well also be tempted by the prospect of a move to the Premier League in order to boost his hopes of playing more regularly.
Look, Balde is a super young talented player that doesnt need to move right now, he is developing very nicely in the Barcelona system, so even though we would be a good move for many players to make, right now, this lad needs to stay put.
Chelsea-linked Jerome Boateng has revealed why he has been surprised over the past few weeks.
During the summer transfer window, Frank Lampard was seeking to add an experienced defender to that back-line as he needed to add some leadership and quality ahead of the new season, and he was heavily linked with a move for Boateng.
However, a despite all the rumours and despite all that speculation, we failed to get a transfer deal done for Boateng and in the end, they opted to bring the brilliant Tiago Silva to the club, and he has proven to be a massive hit with the fans.
But there has been some more reports that the club may opt to make a move to Boateng in the upcoming transfer window to add even more quality to that back-line, especially after they found reports claiming that Bayern were ready to cash in.
Boateng, though, has been taken aback by these claims: “Nobody approached me, nobody spoke to me, I didn’t know anything about it, I was surprised,” he told Suddeutsche Zeitung when asked to react to the news.
Chelsea are still determined to sign Declan Rice either during the January transfer window or at the end of the season, and guru Marina Granovskaia might have a way of funding the move.
There was alot of speculation in the transfer window that Frank Lampard was eager to bring the very impressive Rice to Stamford Bridge, but as the club had already spent over £250 million on new players, a deal could not gte reached.
The Hammers are not no fools and know that Rice is rated very highly across Europe, so high in fact that they put a massive £80 million on the head of the England International, which is a very high asking price.
However, they remain interested and have been tipped to move during January or the summer, and according to Football.London they could end up with more money than they need if they go ahead with the plan that Granovskaia has
We currently have a string of unwanted players on the fringes at Stamford Bridge, with the likes of Emerson Palmieri, Marcos Alonso, Danny Drinkwater, Olivier Giroud and Antonio Rudiger all unlikely to play much going forward due to new signings.
Combined, they have a value on Transfermarkt of £63m, meaning they’d be well on their way towards funding a move for Rice, and Add on Abdul Rahman Baba and that total reaches £65.1m
It is alot of money raised from the possible sales of the stars, but it would go along way into getting Rice signed in the coming windows.
