Chelsea line up struggling Championship boss to replace departed Emenalo

When Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky was hanging around at Stamford Bridge last year, there were a lot of grim jokes from Blues fans about the  Russian being named Chelsea manager.

Of course, it looked like a joke at that point because Italian tactician Antonio Conte was steamrollering the English Premier League and was at the peak of his reign at Stamford Bridge. The talk of the former Juventus head coach being replaced, at least in the meantime, was not a major worry.

But the way Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich put Hull manager Leonid Slutsky up at one of the hotels at Stamford Bridge and let him visit Chelsea’s Cobham training ground was threatening, and now as per British publication the Daily Telegraph, the Ex CSKA Moscow star is being considered to possibly replace departed technical director Michael Emenalo.

The only circumstance holding the Russian tactician back from being truly in the frame is that he got a job in England later on, at English Championship side Hull City.

The Russian tactician is under severe pressure at the club, however, and a number of bad results and he might worryingly be available once again.

Chelsea director Granovskaia is currently occupying the role for the meantime.

Yes!! Coutinho agrees terms but is Willian still coming?

Willian

The latest report has claimed that Arsenal have already agreed on personal terms with Philippe Coutinho for a deal to happen in the coming days as soon as a fee is agreed upon.

Barcelona are hoping to part ways with the former Liverpool man after a big-money deal as German Bundesliga side, Bayern Munich failed to keep him on a permanent deal after his loan spell with the club.

Arsenal are keen to land the Barcelona player and talks have been reported to be heading the right direction with a loan deal as an option.

However, this development has caused a drop in the transfer of Willian from West London club, Chelsea to the Emirates Stadium as reports had earlier claimed that the Gunners will not be bringing in the two players to the club.

This development has left Arsenal fans divided with some seeking for Willian over Philippe Coutinho while others are saying the opposite.

Commentators have argued that Willian will make more impact at Arsenal than Coutinho which means a deal for the Barcelona star and a snub for the Chelsea man may not go well for the club.

Already, reports claim that Arsenal have handed Willian a three-year deal to join the Emirates Stadium and will have him earn £100,000 weekly.

Arsenal’s hope of keeping Gabon international forward, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the Emirates Stadium could still be threatened with reports that Barcelona could still tempt him.

It is claimed that Spanish giants are yet to make a decision on whether to come for the signature of the former Borussia Dortmund forward or not and that would be in the coming days.

Le10Sport, via Sport Witness, reports that the Spanish giants are very interested in the signature of the Arsenal man and have placed him at the top list but have Inter Milan forward, Lautaro Martinez as an alternative if they fail to land him.

However, Mikel Arteta is working back and forth to ensure a new deal is handed to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and it is claimed that he would be given a £250,000 per week wage to stay at the Emirates Stadium for more years.

Meanwhile, it has been a very light mood for the Gunners fans after seeing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang send them into frenzy by liking a post on Instagram begging him to sign a new deal at the club.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been scoring goals for the North London club and since his arrival and will not be forgotten for delivering the FA Cup title with his brace against their London rivals, Chelsea.

EPL: Gunners legend have a say as Willian’s arsenal move gets more real

Willian

The speculated move of Brazilian international winger, Willian from Chelsea to Arsenal is now looking like it would happen with the latest developments in the news.

Chelsea’s boss, Frank Lampard is the first to raise the dust when he stated that Willian’s reported exit does not mean anything as he only shares a good relationship with Willian as a former teammate and now a manager.

According to him, the club will move on if the Brazilian should leave, recalling how the Blues team did not fall with the exit of Eden Hazard.

Frank Lampard’s statement has been interpreted as “giving up” on keeping Willian as he has made some efforts to have the club agree on new terms with the Brazilian.

However, Arsenal legend, Paul Merson backs the move for Willian as he stated that despite the age, football is all about now, and right now, the player is a great one.

According to him, it is unbelievable that the West London outfit will let a player with such quality leave the club, stressing that Willian will be an unbelievable signing for Arsenal.

It is, therefore, claimed that the Brazilian winger will earn about £100,000 per week at the Emirates Stadium and he will be at the club for three years, the terms that were not granted him by Chelsea.

Dean Henderson

The fact that Dean Henderson would me leaving Sheffield United has been confirmed but his destination is still unknown as a decision on his future has not been reached.

The Man United player has just ended his loan spell with Sheffield United at the Bramall Lane and not expected to return as he would be seeking a new challenge elsewhere.

Dean Henderson’s stay at the Old Trafford is also very unlikely as he would sit with the club to know the plans for him. He has stated clearly that he would not return to be a second goalkeeper and if that cannot be assured, he would seek a move without signing a new contract.

West London outfit, Chelsea have already indicated an interest in the goalkeeper as they seek to part ways with Kepa Arrizabalaga over his poor performance, especially during the restart of the season.

However, Chelsea could make a bid for him if he is not assured of a first-team place ahead of Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea, a wish that is very unlikely to be granted.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United are already preparing for life without Dean Henderson as they are reported to be planning a bid for Trabzonspor shot-stopper, Ugurcan Cakir who is valued at £20 million.

North London outfit Arsenal are reported to have made a “ruthless” decision that is highly connected with their plans for the summer transfer window.

Prominent on the list of those that have been shown the exit door at the Emirates Stadium in scout Francis Cagigao who has been very influential in the club.

Commentators have attributed this development by the North London club to their plans for the summer transfer window as they hope to bring in some quality players and will seek to fund the deals.

Top on the list of those expected to join the club are Thomas Partey, Philippe Coutinho and Willian.

Willian

Sky Sports report that Brazilian winger, Willian would be leaving West London outfit, Chelsea to join their London rivals, Arsenal this summer window.

The report also claimed that an agreement has been reached that will have the Brazilian winger receive more than the £100,000 weekly wage at the Emirates Stadium as well as the three-year-deal requested from the Blues team.

An emerging development seems to be confirming this report as a clip of Willian in Arsenal’s kit on the latest trailer for video games PES 21 was leaked.

It would be recalled that the North London outfit had agreed on an official partnership with the Pro Evolution Soccer video game, which is a big rival to FIFA.

In the seven-second video, it says “new signing” as the introduction before showing Willian wearing the new Adidas strip and later showed a short clip of the Emirates Stadium saying “welcome to the Emirates.”

This remains a major hint and leads that something could be happening and a deal could be announced immediately the West London club are through with their Champions League campaign this season.

However, Mikel Arteta will hope his team benefit from the quality of the Brazilian international, and his experience will also help the younger players at the club.

Jack Grealish

Both Man United and Chelsea might face a very big summer transfer disappointment as they are set to fail in their bid to acquire the signature of Aston Villa star Jack Grealish.

Jack Grealish has been on the radar of both clubs even before the end of the season after helping his team to avoid relegation in their last game of the campaign.

He was tipped to leave Aston Villa for a new challenge with Man United leading in the race. It was claimed that after Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, Jack Grealish is next on the list.

Chelsea have also been keeping a tab on the player and were preparing a bid already for the summer transfer window.

However, Jack Grealish is set to stay with Aston Villa for more years with the Sun reporting that he would be handed a new bumper deal that will convince him of a stay.

The report claims that the deal will now have Jack Grealish earn £100 per week which is a very significant increase in his current deal with the club.

This development means that Man United and Chelsea will be left disappointed and will have to seek more options for a new midfielder to bolster their squad ahead of the coming season.

North London outfit Arsenal have been favoured by the statement reportedly credited to Brazilian international and Chelsea winger, Willian on his wish for the future.

The West London outfit have been struggling to hand a new deal to the Brazilian but the terms have been the major challenge as the club have an existing policy for players who are above 30.

A number of clubs are already lined up for his services with Arsenal also indicating interests, alongside David Beckham’s Inter Miami with a bumper offer.

Bur from emerging reports, Willian has already told his friends of his desire to stay in London and play under manager Mikel Arteta with Arsenal already willing to hand him the three-year-deal he is requesting.

Mikel Arteta sees investment in Willian on a free deal as a wise one as he could add to the attacking strength of the club as well as help younger players with his experience.

Chelsea are only willing to give the 31-year-old a two-year deal and that has been rejected which means he would be a free player in few weeks.

Meanwhile, manager Frank Lampard is making frantic efforts to convince the club hierarchy for a three-year-deal for the Brazilian winger and that has been difficult to achieve.
