Christian Eriksen

West London club Chelsea have made inquiry for Tottenham attacker Christian Eriksen with the hope of making a move for him in the coming winter transfer window.

The quality of the Denmark international is obvious for all to know in the Premier League as he has played a big role in ensuring the qualification of the North London team to the Champions League on the second consecutive year now.

Arsenal midfielder could be on his way out of North London

Chelsea are believed he will be good at the club and will serve as a perfect replacement for former Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas who is keen to move away from the club owing to the lack of regular playing time at the club.

The Denmark is also being monitored by Spanish giants Real Madrid with reports that they seek to have him replace world star player Cristiano Ronaldo who left the Bernabeu in the summer to Italian outfit Juventus.

Christian Eriksen joined Tottenham from Ajax in 2013 for just £14 million but his release clause is believed to have risen to £90 million because f his impressive performances since joining the club.

The Tottenham man has played a total of 12 games this season and has found the back of the net on three occasions with 3 assist on goals.

Gonzalo Higuain

Latest  report has revealed that West London outfit Chelsea star striker Gonzalo Higuain is a subject of interest from Chinese outfit Hebei China Fortune ahead of the summer transfer window.

Gonzalo Higuain only joined the West London outfit on loan last January winter transfer window with the hope of coming in to help manager Maurizio Sarri solve the issues of his lack of cutting edge but that has not happened as he has been goal shy at the Stamford Bridge.

The option of having him on a permanent deal has now been rejected by the West London outfit but there are chances he will not return back to his owners, Juventus has offers already on the table from the Chinese outfit.

It is reported that should Gonzalo Higuain accept the offer, he would land a mega-deal that will make him one of the highest paid player in the Chinese League.

Howbeit, Gonzalo Higuain is now 31 which means he has got limited time to play actively which is a contributing factor considered in the decision by the Blues team.

With Chelsea set to face their transfer ban and might not be able to register  new players, they have already succeeded in having France international Olivier Giroud commit his future to the club for another year.

Eden Hazard

Former Chelsea and Man United manager Jose Mourinho has unwittingly confirmed the exit of Belgium international Eden Hazard from the Stamford Bridge in the summer transfer window.

This is after he claimed that he does not expect Eden Hazard to remain at the club after the Europa League clash against Arsenal later next week at Baku.

Eden Hazard is speculated to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge to Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid after confessing his desire to play under his football idol, Zinedine Zidane.

However, the Portuguese boss showered praise on Eden Hazard as he claims that he remains one of the best players one will ever come by which is the reason why Real Madrid will seek to land him at all cost.

The West London outfit have therefore done their best to ensure the star player remains at the club but that has not worked out as Real Madrid seem to be keen on landing him in the summer window.

Meanwhile, the West London outfit have been handed a ban from the next two summer window which means they will not be able to sign a replacement for Eden Hazard in the summer transfer window.

Going by the words of West London outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, he already knows that his future at the Stamford Bridge would be decided by the result of the Europa League clash against Arsenal in the coming week.

However, that has never gotten him nervous as he remains calm insisting he has a contract with the club but his major focus remains the game against Arsenal.

The rumours of Maurizio Sarri’s sack has been unending even if he helped the Blues team qualify to the Champions League by finishing third, the club owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly not happy with the Italian boss as a result of his perceived poor relationship with the fans.

However, the future of the former Napoli boss has now been tied to the finals but Maurizio Sarri has noted that he would like to hold talks with his team to ascertain if they are happy with him or not as that could help him make decisions regarding the future.

Meanwhile, Maurizio Sarri has been linked to a return to the Italian Serie A with defending champions Juventus and AS Roma looking to land him ahead of the coming season but he has insisted that he still has two years left on his contract with the Blues team and that must be respected.

Christian Pulisic

The issue of rivalry between the two London outfits Arsenal and Chelsea was not allowed to come into place as the Gunners striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reported to have influenced the decision of American star Christian Pulisic to join the Blues team from the German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund.

Christian Pulisic agreed on a move to join the Blues team in the last January winter transfer window but was loaned back.

He gave this revelation in one of his first interviews after returning back, revealing that he had asked the Gunners’ striker before making one move and got convinced by the response.

It is important to note that Christian Pulisic had worked with the Gunners striker at the German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund before they parted ways in 2018 after the Gabon international signed for the North London outfit.

Christian Pulisic admits that they parted ways for some time now but have kept contact with one another as good friends.

However, the two teams are set to clash in the coming week for the Europa League finals in Baku.

A win for Chelsea will not only hand them a trophy but it will help manager Maurizio Sarri keep his job.

Eden Hazard

It is expected that the West London outfit Chelsea will part ways with their star player and Belgium international Eden Hazard at the end of the season.

The popular opinion is that the star player will head to the Spanish capital to join Real Madrid ahead of the coming season after he had openly confessed his love for the club and his dream to play under manager Zinedine Zidane as his idol.

More so, Eden Hazard has refused to pen a new deal with the club as his contract enters into the final year while the Blues team are not willing to let go of him for free.

However, it has been reported that bids have been submitted for the star player but negotiations are still on as the West London outfit are demanding for a fee of £100 million for the star player.

Brazilian international Willian has therefore stated that he would be unhappy to see Eden Hazard leave the club as he noted that the star player would be missed.

It would also be recalled that manager Maurizio Sarri had showered praise on Eden Hazard claiming that it would be very difficult for the Bleus team to replace him ahead of the coming season.

sarri

The West London outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri can now know his fate ahead of the coming season with reports that the club owner Roman Abramovich has already taken a stand.

It was earlier reported that the Blues owner has been uncomfortable with the relationship of the Italian boss and the fans and that almost led to writing a sack letter but he had to step down the decision after the former Napoli boss finished the English Premier League season in the third position to secure qualification to the Champions League.

However, the latest reports reveal that Roman Abramovich has decided that Maurizio Sarri would be shown the way out if he fails to land the Europa league title next week.

After struggling throughout the season, the Blues team broke-through to the Europa League finals and would face Arsenal later next week in Baku.

Should the West London outfit secure a win, the Italian boss would be given another opportunity to manage the club for another year but if otherwise, he could be shown the way out.

Meanwhile, Maurizio Sarri has already been linked with a move away from the Stamford Bridge as he is reported to have received offers from Italian Serie A champions, Juventus.

Antonio Conte

Former West London outfit Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has now been confirmed as the manager of the Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan ahead of the coming season.

The Italian has been without a job since he was sacked by the West London outfit after the 2017/2018 campaign with claims that the judgment came upon him for failing to qualify to the Champions League and was replaced by another Italian Maurizio Sarri.

However, with his announcement as the new manager at the San Siro, Antonio Conte is reported to have requested for the signing of his former player and Nigerian international Victor Moses.

Both enjoyed a good working relationship at the Stamford Bridge as they worked together to land the English Premier League title for the club in Antonio Conte’s first season.

However, Victor Moses has been sent out on loan to the Turkish outfit Fernerbache because he was unable to meet up with the demands at the club under Maurizio Sarri.

Meanwhile, Antonio Conte is still interested in working with the Nigerian international with the hope that they will be able to produce the same quality of play and get the desired result at the end of the day.

It is therefore yet to be known if the Blues team will let go of the Nigerian international.

Nicolo Barella

It has been revealed that West London outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was left disappointed after Cagliari star midfielder Nicolo Barella turned down the opportunity to join the Stamford Bridge in the last January winter transfer window.

Nicolo Barella was reportedly available for a move to the Stamford Bridge with the Italian Serie A side willing to let him leave but the move was blocked by the player on claims that he wants to remain in the country because of his family.

It was expected that Nicolo Barella joins the club as a replacement for France international Cesc Fabregas who left the club to join French Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco.

However, manager Maurizio Sarri could still be interested in a move for Nicolo Barella but they will again be stopped by the transfer ban on the team after falling short of FIFA rules.

It is also unclear if Nicolo Barella is still willing to leave Italy as he could still hold the excuse of wanting to be with his family.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have got France international N’Golo Kante, Jorginho at the midfield while there are possibilities of adding up Mateo Kovacic who is on loan from Spanish La Liga side Real Madrid.

sarri

It has been suggested that there is a possibility of manager Maurizio Sarri moving away from the West London outfit Chelsea to join the Italian Serie A champions Juventus ahead of the coming season.

There are speculations that the Italian boss could be sacked by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich as he is not convinced about his ability to deliver success while his relationship with the fans remains a major concern.

It is therefore claimed that Roman Abramovich will wait for the outcome of the Europa League finals before making a decision on the future of the former Napoli boss.

However, Maurizio Sarri has already been linked with a return to Italy as he is reportedly wanted by a number of clubs in the Serie A including AS Roma and Juventus.

Serie A champions Juventus’ manager Allegri has already declared his decision to leave the club and manager Maurizio is being linked with a switch which he has dismissed but there are feelers that the move could still happen if he lose his job with the Blues team.

It is therefore claimed that Maurizio Sarri has met with the criteria needed at the Old Lady and is tipped to succeed if handed the job but that will not happen should Chelsea decide to keep him for the coming season.

Although the performance of the Blues team was not convincing in the concluding season the Italian boss has managed to help the Blues team return to Champions League with a top-four finish.

Chelsea to pay £32 for this player who is not affected by ban

Timothy Aiyeku

on

The West London outfit Chelsea have been handed a transfer ban that will stop them from registering new players for the next two transfer windows.

The Blues team went against the FIFA rule on signing foreign minors and that has attracted the ban.

This, therefore, means the West London outfit will not be able to register any new player as such, having new faces in the coming season aside American star Christian Pulisic whose deal has already been completed before the ban was placed.

However, Chelsea have got one Real Madrid player, Mateo Kovacic who could be available for them despite the transfer ban to bring in before the start of the season.

Mateo Kovacic registered as a loan player after spending some time at the Stamford Bridge and that is the only saving grace the Blues have got because they have an option of a permanent deal which is now being considered for activation.

However, in very clear terms, a permanent deal for Kovacic will not be affected by the FIFA ban that prevents Chelsea from signing players for the next two transfer windows.

Meanwhile, Mateo Kovacic’s performance within his one-year loan spell at the Stamford Bridge remains an impressive one after playing 32 times in the Premier League.
