Brazilian confirms summer move to happen, Chelsea sent exciting message about possible arrival, Chelsea told £68m striker ready for big move
Guys here is a roundup of the top news, gossip and transfer headlines from icchelseanews.com over the past 24 hours.
Timo Werner’s team-mate has declared the forward ready to play for any top club in Europe amid rumours Chelsea are trying to sign him.
German striker Werner, is rated as one of the hottest prospects in Europe, with reports in the media all suggesting that he is seeking that big move to further develop his name in the game, with a host of top clubs linked with a possible move.
The German is one of the top scorers in Europe this season with 26 goals in all competitions, and is tipped to become one of the most deadly strikers in the game, with many believing that Lampard is a massive fan of the talented young German and firmly believes he could add something to the side.
We failed to get their transfer business done in the January window but have already kicked off the summer window with the signing of Hakim Ziyech, who will officially arrive when the transfer window officially opens up, and they will surely try to nail down the services of Werner.
Now amid all the speculation, RB Leipzig star Tyler Adams hailed his team-mate and predicted he would slot into any team in the world, he told ESPN: ‘It’s hard to say one thing.
‘People are often focused not just on his goalscoring ability but how fast he is, he’s absolutely rapid. There’s just so many roles you can fit him in, that’s what makes him such a unique piece.
‘If you’re able to score in that many different ways, you’ll be able to play at the highest level for a really long time, [for] the biggest clubs in the world, the national team.
‘He’s a pleasure to play with. It makes it easy playing as a midfielder knowing you can play the ball over the top and he’ll catch it no matter what. He’s a great guy and a great player.’
Christian Fuchs has made an exciting prediction about Ben Chilwell’s future, with Chelsea linked with a transfer move.
Emerson Palmieri made a strong start to the campaign, but has been dealt with several injury problems and we have had to turn to Marcos Alonso, who you feel is not a particular favourite of Lampard’s.
Cesar Azpilicueta has played in that position, despite being a right-back, while Reece James has also done a job on the left, so we will need to delve into their transfer kitty to try and acquire the services of a new left-back, especially after they failed to get any deals done in January.
And as we said, Chilwell has enhanced his reputation this season with a series of impressive displays for title-chasing Leicester and is one of the best full-backs in the top flight, meaning that he is top of the shopping list in the summer.
And According to reports we lead the race to sign the 23-year-old full-back and are confident we can persuade him, and Leicester to do a transfer deal in the summer, although it is believed that Leicester will want close to £80 million for Chilwell.
Now Fuchs has opened up and admitted that he believes that Chilwell has the ability to become one of the best, he was quoted on the SUN: “He will be one of the top left-backs in England for years.”
“He has definitely improved,” Fuchs told Goal.
“He has a good amount of England caps already, which just shows his ability. At an early age like that, to play for the national team for that amount of games is really good.
“As a young player, I have been in that situation. You still find yourself learning a lot from games and facing other teams. So, he is in a good place and I think he will be one of the top left-backs in England for years to come.
“The good thing for him is that, at 23, he is still young, with a lot of potential to improve in the future.”
Willian has all-but conceded his time at Chelsea is coming to an end this summer after he was told his demand of a three-year contract extension is “impossible”.
There has been talk that he could be leaving at the end of the season as reports in the media have suggested that we may not be willing to offer him a new contract because of his age, and may be willing to let him leave the club on a free transfer, with the likes of Juventus and Barcelona eyeing up a possible deal
But despite Hakim Ziyech’s impending arrival in the summer, recent reports have claimed the transfer will not impact Willian, and that the club and the stars representatives are still in talks to try and agree a deal that would allow him to stay at the club for the next few years.
Now he has come out and pretty much ended talk that he could stay:, he told Expediente Futebol: “Really a very beautiful story that I built at this club, I have a very special affection for the fans, for the people who work there and I identified myself a lot here.
“Everyone knows that my contract ends now in a few months, so the renewal is really a difficult thing to happen.
“I think it will be very difficult for me to renew because Chelsea offered me two years, I asked for three and it ended there, we didn’t talk anymore, we didn’t negotiate anymore.
“Three years – Chelsea said it would be impossible, so for now theres this difficulty, but nothing is impossible.
“We don’t know what can happen, suddenly we could make a deal and get it right. But what I can say today is that my contract is going over and I will be free to negotiate with any team
IT WILL BE A SHAME IF HE LEAVES AS HE HAS BEEN BRILLIANT FOR US!
