Tuchel ‘told exactly what striker can do’ ahead of summer Chelsea move, Chelsea ‘have made contact’ in bid to land French striker,Chelsea have already made offer for defender
Chelsea are in love with Kounde, Tuchel sent Broja message and Chelsea have made Ekitike contact in Chelsea roundup..
It has been claimed that Chelsea are in love with the signing of Joules Kounde and will make another offer in the summer
Sevilla defender Jules Kounde is apparently top of the club’s wish list according to the journalist, after a move was said to be close last summer.
The French international has featured in 19 La Liga matches so far this season and is contracted at the club until June 2024, but he is heavily tipped to leave the Spanish side in the summer
It is no secret that Thomas Tuchel will need to add a few more defenders to the squad on the coming window as a number of stars could actually be leaving on a free, and there has been some big names linked with our club.
Kounde is playing the ‘last leg of his career at Sevilla’ and will leave them as their record sale in the summer. That’s according to Fichajes.net, who say the former Bordeaux man wants to join a top club that fights for the Champions League.
It’s claimed Thomas Tuchel’s side ‘love him’ and after having ‘already made an offer’ for Koundé in 2021, the club ‘will do it again in a few months’. In other words, the Premier League side will make another proposal in the next window.
Kounde is a very special talent that has the ability to be one of the best defenders in the game. So if the club are going to sign the man, he would be a brilliant addition to the squad
But we are not the only club interested and may have to fend off a number of clubs to get Kounde signed
Chelsea have made contact with Ligue 1 side Reims over a potential transfer for wonderkid striker Hugo Ekitike,
He only made his senior debut for Reims in August, but has impressed and The 19-year-old has scored nine goals in 20 Ligue 1 appearances this season.
He is a France U20 international and also has experience playing on the left wing, and it is no secret in the media that he was a player that the board really wanted to sign in the January transfer window
However, the 19-year-old opted against the move preferring to see out the season with Reims as it is believed that he would be more happier leaving the French side at the end of the season rather than during it
Now, according to Foot Mercato, we have made contact about a possible move for the lad.
The French side want roughly £33.5million to let him go, though the Blues face competition from other European sides.
Amid all the speculation and rumours, his agent Karl Buchmann said the following about Ekitike’s failed move to Newcastle in January ,as published in The Chronicle:
“We were not convinced about the sports project and we saw no short or medium-term plan with their approach.
“Hugo has achieved great things in just six months but as he is attached to the club, we agreed with the leaders to end the season with Reims.”
Look, Ekitike is clearly a very talented striker that could have a big future in the game, but if the club are keen to add another striker to the squad, he is not the player that will get them to the next level
He is one for the future, but we have enough talent for that and we need to sign some world class talent, as Man City and Liverpool will be doing that when the transfer window opens up.
Thomas Tuchel has been told exactly what Armando Broja can add to Chelsea should he be given a chance in the first-team next season.
The Albanian is currently in the midst of a loan spell with Southampton and has impressed during his debut season in the English top-flight, where he has has eight goalss in all competitions for the Saints this season.
It follows on from the form in which he netted on 11 occasions for Eredivisie outfit Vitesse Arnhem, an impressive record which prompted Southampton to make a move for the player for this season.
The 20-year-old will be keen to continue those sorts of displays throughout the remainder of the season as he eyes a return to Stamford Bridge in the summer, and with the club looking to sort out their striker issues, Thomas Tuchel may give him a chance
And ahead of the Southamptons’ weekend clash with Everton, Toffees boss Frank Lampard has been talking up his former player and has told Thomas Tuchel exactly what he could bring to the team..
“I gave him his debut,” Lampard told his pre-match press conference on Thursday.
“He’s a very good lad, very talented young boy. He’s fast, strong, has a real eye for a goal. He’s a very good young player, so I’m very aware of his strengths.”
Broja is definitely a player that could help that this attack. the way he plays, his physical presence and his ability to score, just what Tuchel needs
But if the club do decide to let the man leave, they could be making one big transfer mistake as we believe that he can go on and become one of the most deadly strikers in Europe
He has all the tools
