The consistent rotation of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have become questionable. While both players performances in Blue’s shirt were deemed “criminal”.
Maurizio Sarri’s twist could well place them on a knife-edge, while their industrious works in training may yet be tentative in their fans perspective as one of those fortuitous players like Fernando Torres who issued diminutive share of contribution when he won both the Champions League and Europa cup in the space of two years with the London club.
Morata netted 11 EPL goals in his debut season including a hat-trick against Stoke City but has struggled to be clinical in front of goal.
While trying to meet with Chelsea’s demand which compares him with former legend Didier Drogba, the current ambassador of Chelsea hinted in an interview that could boost their adroit level in Sarri’s supposed free-scoring tactics.
According to Drogba:
“When I came it wasn’t easy for me. I think for strikers it is just a matter of confidence and do you want to improve your game and make yourself more difficult to play against.”
Both players have not settled yet in Sarri’s pecking order. While one is good at getting to goal scoring position, the other is good at laying passes to help wingers score goals. But if that’s what Sarri wants, remains latent.
Chelsea close to agreeing deal for South American defender
Emerging reports claim that the English Premier League outfit Chelsea are now considering to hand a new deal to Brazilian international David Luiz before the end of the winter transfer window.
David Luiz’s contract with the West London side ends later this year which makes it important for the club to tie him down with a new deal so as not to lose him to other big sides.
The Brazilian is on the radar of a number of big sides including Benfica and Napoli as they are all keeping tabs with the hope of signing him if he is placed in the market.
The Blues had earlier showed reluctance in handing a new contract to David Luiz because of the doctrine of the club which refuses them to hand more than a year contract extension to players over 30-year-old.
David Luiz had insisted on a two-year contract extension but the Blues were ready to hand him only one which he refused late last year.
However, latest reports claim that David Luiz will be considered as the Blues are desperate to keep him, knowing that he is one of the best defenders in the English Premier League as well as in Europe.
Liverpool in shock move for Chelsea young sensation
Emerging report claims that English Premier League leaders Liverpool are planning to submit a shock bid for wantaway Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi in this winter transfer window.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has been seeking for a move away from teh Stamford Bridge over his lack of playing time with the West London side relunctant to part ways with him.
He has been identified as a player with big talent but he is being limited by the quality of players in the Blues team which he cannot withstand or win over.
German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich are reported to have made several attempts to secure the signature of Callum Hudson-Odoi but failed on three occasions.
However, latest report claims that the Merseyside are making effort to convince the star player in order to have him switch over to the Merseyside club.
It has been revealed that the Reds representatives have met with Callum Hudson-Odoi and his brother Bradley, who is his agent to consider a possible move to the Anfield.
While the outcome of the meeting has not been made public, there are suggestions that the Reds will do all it takes to lure the desperate player.
In a bid to have him stay, Chelsea reportedly tabled a £70,000-a-week contract but he is only keen on a first team football.
Chelsea to miss out on £30m-rated transfer target
The chances of English Premier League outfit Arsenal securing the signature of their long term target and Italian Serie A outfit Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella is now looking slim.
