Savage warns Frank about Ziyech, Chelsea close in on Sancho, heres why, Defender tells Chelsea how unbelievable target is
Guys here is a roundup of the latest news, gossip and speculation from icchelseanews over the past 24 hours…
Robbie Savage has warned Chelsea boss Frank Lampard about their world class new signing Hakim Ziyech.
There has been alot said over the past few months since we confirmed that they have agreed a deal with Ajax to bring the impressive winger to Stamford Bridge during the summer transfer window.
Ziyech is easily regarded as one of the most creative players in Europe and has constantly found himself in the headlines for all the right reasons, especially after helping Ajax reach the Champions League semi-finals last season and helping the club regain that Dutch title.
The Morocco winger will join up with his new team-mates ahead of the 2020/21 campaign and Savage believes Lampard has got his hands on an exceptional talent.
Discussing Ziyech on BT Sport, the ex-Blackburn and Wales midfielder said: ‘Obviously we’re going to throwback to the Champions League final and Spurs beating Ajax on the way to the final.
‘In that competition Ziyech was very, very good so that will be a fantastic signing for Chelsea.
‘Christian Pulisic, we’ve not seen the best. He had that little spell where he started scoring a few goals.
‘Under Frank Lampard, before the start of the season, I didn’t think Chelsea would finish in the top four or possibly even in the top six so, for me, Frank has done a very good job considering going into the season there was the transfer ban.’
On-loan Chelsea defender Jake Clarke-Salter has raved about the club’s reported transfer target, Jude Bellingham, hailing the ‘unbelievable’ midfielder as the best player in training at Birmingham.
Frank Lampard knows that he needs to keep adding to his side during the summer transfer window as he needs to take this to the next stage and get us challenging for more than a top four spot and Champions League money, Roman Abramovic wants to be challenging for titles.
Bellingham had been expected to sign for United this summer after it was revealed that Red Devils chiefs gave the 16-year-old a tour of the club’s Carrington training ground earlier in the season, but reports claim that we have held talks with the gifted lad.
Birmingham could hold out for as much as £50m for Bellingham, who has established himself as a mainstay in the Championship side this season, as the youngster has scored four goals and provided three assists in 32 league appearances for the St Andrews club.[the_ad id=”164″]
Defender Clarke- Salter, currently on loan at Birmingham, has seen firsthand what Bellingham is capable of this season and sung the praises of his ‘unbelievable’ team-mate during a Q&A on Tuesday night.
‘For me, the best player in training is Jude Bellingham,’ he said on the Metro
‘For someone so young, what he does in training sometimes is unbelievable.’
Chelsea have been handed a transfer boost as Jadon Sancho reportedly prefers a move “back home to London” .
Sancho is easily regarded as one of the finest talents in the game right now and has been constantly linked with a move to the Premier League during the summer transfer window after another impressive season in the Bundesliga.
He has already become a creative force for the Germans, and despite all his flair moments, he produces on a weekly basis, which has been proven by the fact he has double figures in both goals and assists,
However, it seemed that United are leading the chase to secure a possible deal in the summer window, with reports even suggesting that the Red Devils are prepared to pay the massive £100 million it would take to secure a transfer deal.
But, juts like the transfer speculation on a daily basis, We are not back in the race to bring him here (thank god) as reports on the SUN website claimed that Sancho would much prefer a move to London rather than back up Manchester.
Callum Hudson-Odoi recently chipped in and got transfer headlines going crazy after he told his England team-mate that he would love it if he made the move to the Bridge: “Me and Sancho are mad close, we talk every other day, always seeing how each other are and how we’re doing,” the Chelsea forward revealed on Instagram.
“We make sure that we’re both doing well, obviously he’s doing amazing and having a great season. Obviously, he’s a great player, I love playing with him – he’s a great player to play with.
“The way we play with each other we just know where each other is on the pitch every time and we just love to play with each other. I don’t know [if he will come]. Of course, I would love it if he came to Chelsea.”
Now, all we are going to say is forget it United, Sancho is PERFECT for US!
