Werner message sent, Chelsea backed to sign Rice, Sancho claim made, Gimenez move to be made in icchelseanews roundup..
Perry Groves has backed Chelsea to make a move for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, after reports suggested that an opening offer has been made
We may have a very exciting attack that can create and score goals on a regular basis, but that back-line and stopper area of the pitch looks very dodgy and cost us alot of points in the Premier League.
Our defensive issues were the main reason why they failed to beat Arsenal in the FA Cup, and then got knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich, and now that the transfer window is opened up, Lampard has admitted that he is keen to improve the defensive side of the squad.
West Ham midfielder Declan Rice is a player that has been heavily linked with a move to the Bridge, especially as he is eager to make that step up in the game and avoid another relegation battle next season with the Hammers.
Now, amid the reports on Sky Sports that we have submitted their opening offer fro Rice, Groves has backed the club to complete a possible deal for the Englishman, He told talkSPORT: “I think he does suit Chelsea because we said before, they look weak through the centre of their midfield area.
“It gives them that little bit of physical strength and he’s got better on the ball.
“He would be a player who would protect the two centre-halves. So that makes sense.
“The price is going to be more because obviously he’s English so that always puts the price up by another £10million, doesn’t it?”
David Ornstein has revealed why Chelsea changed their mind over making a move for Jadon Sancho.
There has been so much transfer speculation in the media about the future of Sancho that fans do not know what to believe, and whether or not their club will actually make a transfer move.
With 17 goals and 17 assists in the Bundesliga this season, Sancho is already considered to be one of the finest talents in European football, and that is why we have been heavily linked with the talebted winger
Nobody knows if he will actually make it back to the Premier League this summer, but The Borussia Dortmund star has been questioned over the speculation surrounding his future, and he has failed to rule out a possible move to the Premier League
But despite the speculation, wedecided to back out of the chase to sign the talented winger to let the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool to all chase the winger.
Now Ornestein has opened up and revealed just why we decided to not pursue a summer deal for Sancho, He told the Tifo Football podcast: “Sancho grew up as a Chelsea fan.
“There was dialogue with them, but the situation changed… as a result of the Covid crisis.”
Reports have claimed Chelsea may look to offload Antonio Rudiger and replace him with Jose Gimenez.
We may be getting many in the Premier League excited for the start of next season, especially with the transfer deals that they have already done, but they need to delve into that kitty and land a new central defender.
We have already conceded more goals at the back than any side in the top 10 of the Premier League, and will not be able to challenge for that title if frank Lampard does not get the defensive players that will improve the side.
And that has led to speculation in the media which have claimed that we are lining up a possible transfer move for the very impressive Gimenez, who is very highly-rated over in La Liga and is also being chased by Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.
And Rudiger is possibly going to be sold this summer as Frank Lampard has ambitious transfer plans with Mundo Deportivo in Spain are reporting this interest with the Blues hoping to replace Rudiger with Gimenez
RB Leipzig forward Yussuf Poulsen believes Timo Werner will be a big hit with Chelsea but he has called for patience with his former team-mate.
After months of transfer speculation regarding the young man, who was heavily tipped to sign with Premier League Champions Liverpool, it was us that activated that clause and got a deal done.
Frank Lampard knew that he needed to add some more goals to this attack and after seeing Werner net an impressive 34 goals in just 45 games last season, the Blues made sure to get the deal done quickly.
Blues fans will hope that Werner can have a similar impact at Stamford Bridge in 2020-21, as Frank Lampard’s side look to close the gap on Liverpool and City at the top of the Premier League.
But despite all the excitement surrounding Werner, Poulsen expects the German striker to take a bit longer to express his true potential on the field once the new season kicks off in September.
‘I think Timo will be a great striker in the Premier League over the next few years,’ said the Denmark international in an interview with the Sport-Informations-Dienst.
‘Of course, he has to get to know his team-mates and the league first; you can’t show all your qualities right away. But that will come in time.’
Werner enjoyed a career-best season in the Bundesliga in 2019/20, and there are already big expectations on his head, and he hasnt even kicked a ball.
