Bernard

Chelsea were thought to be the next destination for Russian youngster Aleksandr Golovin this summer but that wasn’t the case as the 22-year-old is reportedly close to joining Monaco.

The CSKA Moscow star was an inspirational figure in the Russian team who played at the quarter-final round of the recently concluded world cup for the first time in their history.

His showings at the Mundial brought him to limelight and many managers, including Maurizio Sarri and José Mourinho, want to add him to their respective clubs ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Monaco made a shock move for him and they surprisingly beat their rivals to the player’s signature.

However, having lost Golovin to the French side, the Blues have reportedly turned attention to Brazil star Bernard, who plays for Ukrainian Champions Shakhtar Donetsk.

The 25-year-old midfielder is presently out of contract after staying five years at the club and reports claim Chelsea are set to sign him up for free in coming days.

Reports over the player’s future claimed that Leicester City, Wolfsburg, and West Ham have made enquiries over the possibility of luring him to their clubs this summer.

However, Benard seems to have chosen the Blues ahead of other offers he’s received from interested clubs so far, that’s according to Sky Sport

Benard can play any position at the center of the pitch, he could also join the team while attacking, though, he might spend most of his time on the substitute bench during the coming season.

Eden Hazard

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has ruled himself out of this year’s Ballon d’Or award, stating that he does not deserve to win it.

The Belgium international has been shortlisted in this year’s list, making it his third time after coming 8th in 2015 and 19th in 2017. This time again, he feels he does not deserve it because he has not worked hard enough.

Hazard’s claim comes when he is enjoying a very good form and being one of the best players in the West London club with 8 goals this season and 4 assists to his name.

Although, the Belgium international says he does not feel motivated by individual awards as he stated that some players deserve it ahead because they have been better.

Therefore, Hazard pointed at French giants Paris St Germain star Kylian Mbappe as the best candidate for the award because he has been consistent and scoring goals as well.

Hazard is of the opinion that Spanish giants Real Madrid star Luka Modric would have been a better candidate for the award also but because he has been little quiet especially in the months of August and September.

However, Hazard has his focus on a title win this season with manager Maurizio Sarri.

Olivier Giroud

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has stated that he was ordered to leave his former North London side in the 2017 summer by God.

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea have agreed to send star player Callum Hudson Odoi on loan in the coming January transfer window.

The 18-year-old young lad has been seeking for first-team football at the Stamford Bridged but he will have the chance to get it outside the West London club.

Callum Hudson Odoi’s loan move is designed by manager Maurizio who wants the player as well as others to go out to secure a level of experience outside the club since they will not have that level of opoortunity at the Stamford Bridge.

Attempt was made by the Italian manager to keep the player and that was the reason why he listed Callum Hudson Odoi in the starting lineup for the Community Shield in August where he played about 59 minutes in the 2-0 defeat to Manchester City.

There are suggestions that Callum Hudson Odoi will head to either Germany, Australia or Netherlands where he can get quick developments before returning back to the club.

The Blues have got a number of young talents within that age grade but Ross Barkley has been able to beat off all competitions to make the first team.

The young lad stood in the gap for Belgium star Eden Hazard while he was away as a result of back pain.

Federico Chiesa

Liverpool will have to battle Premier League rivals Chelsea and Man United for the signature of Italian winger Federico Chiesa according to reports.

The Anfield side have been tipped to be ahead of others in the move for the Florentina forward who will be allowed to leave the club in the nearby future but on a worthy price.

However, the West London side Chelsea are also reported to be making big moves to snatch the player off Liverpool’s hook while Serie A sides Napoli and Juventus are also linked to the player.

But a bid for the service of the winger by the Italian giants are reported to have been turned down which gives the Reds an advantage to go all out for Federico Chiesa’s signature.

Meanwhile, the English Premier League giants are making efforts to add quality to their squad with the manager Jurgen Klopp seeking to win his first title at the Anfield since joining from Borussia Dortmund about three years ago.

The German manager has admitted that finishing second in the Premier League and Champions League will mean no medal for his side, hence there is a need to win something to be able to confirm the club as a big one.

Pedrinho

Chelsea and Liverpool are reported to have missed out on the opportunity to sign Corinthians wonderkid Pedrinho despite being available.

It was reported that Pedrinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian was interested in having his player move to the top clubs in Europe in the summer and earlier in the January transfer window.

According to reports, Kia Joorabchian contacted the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Paris St Germain and Ajax to have the service of the player but none of them heeded to his plea until the Brazilian returned to his country to join Corinthians.

Liverpool was highly pressurized to have the player because they are known to have a good relationship with Brazilian players knowing with the likes of Roberto Firmino, Alisson Becker and Fabinho all excelling at the club.

It was reported that the manager Jurgen Klopp rejected Pedrinho on two occasions but the agent seems not to be giving up as he is open that the German manager will soon be convinced on the youngster who can play as a winger despite being a no. 10.

A move Chelsea is not feasible at the moment with the many options available to manager Maurizio Sarri at the midfield at the Stamford Bridge.
