Callum Hudson-Odoi

Sky Sport have hinted that West London club Chelsea might have concluded talks to have Callum Hudson-Odoi join German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich for a loan deal in the coming winter transfer window.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is a young and talented star who is seeking to continue is rapid development with regular playing time and that will not happen at the Stamford Bridge with manager Maurizio Sarri not ready to gamble any game this season.

Because he is bent on winning a title in his first season in charge of the Blues team, the former Napoli boss has made use of just 14 players in total this season, leaving no hope for Callum Hudson-Odoi of a first-team football.

The Italian boss holds the opinion that the young English man has a lot to improve upon including his defensive and offensive phase in addition to learning on how to move properly without the ball.

However, as a way of handing him an opportunity to develop elsewhere, the West London side have resolved to send him to Germany on a loan deal.

Meanwhile, it is reported that the German side will seek to have an option of a permanent buy after his loan spell.

English Premier League outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has given the hint that his side will have some transfer activates when the winter transfer window is opened.

With few weeks to the opening of the window, the West London side have already been linked with a number of players that could eventually find their ways to the Stamford Bridge.

Having started on a very good note, the season is now becoming more difficult for the Blues team especially after they saw their first two consecutive defeats in the Premier League against Tottenham and Wolves respectively.

Chelsea were only encouraged and brought back into the title race when they defeated Premier League champions Manchester City at the last weekend.

The Italian boss is now ready to do some business but noted that he will not rush into buys and will not have too many additions in the winter window.

The Italian boss, therefore, stressed that what is most important is a change of mentality by his side that will help blend with the new way of playing before any addition.

However, while an addition is expected, suggestions are that a number of players will find their ways out of the club as a result of their lack of playing time under the former Napoli boss.

Chelsea fans

English Premier League side Chelsea are set to conclude the group stage of the Europa League against Videoton later on Thursday evening with the hope of having a perfect record.

The West London side have not lost any game so far in the competition and they will hope it continues despite already booking their place in the second round as group leaders.

More still, their host in Hungary are currently the third position and will only need a draw or win to qualify to the knockout stage which will definitely make the clash a good one to see.

However, Chelsea fans will not expect to see Kepa Arrizabalaga in between the sticks for the obvious reason that work has already been done which means Willy Caballero would be available.

Because of the expected fight from the home side, Sarri is likely to stick with a good side at the defence with Zappacosta, Christensen, Gary Cahill and Emerson.

Also, Cesc Fabregas, Ross Barkley and Ampadu could get the nod at the middle while Victor Moses, Alvaro Morata and Hudson-Odoi could also be considered in the attack.

Meanwhile, the West London side have had a good outing so far this season despite recently seeing two consecutive defeats in the Premier League against Tottenham and Wolves.

Mateo Kovacic

It was earlier expected that West London side will have a free run in their bid to sign Croatia international Mateo Kovacic on a permanent bid but that has changed with reports that London rivals Tottenham have already approached his owners Real Madrid.

Mateo Kovacic is currently on loan at the Stamford Bridge after failing to make the team at the Bernabeu and has impressed manager Maurizio Sarri which makes the club plan the idea of having him on a permanent deal.

With Real Madrid looking unsure about having Mateo Kovacic return back to Spain, Tottenham are making efforts to steal the opportunity and they are reported to have made inquiries about the player’s availability.

The North London side had no transfer deal in the last summer because of the financial commitment of the club on the new stadium and they seem to be storming the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks to have more additions.

Tottenham see Mateo Kovacic as a good fit for the club and they are hopeful they can convince him into staying at the club knowing that he has lots of competitors at the Stamford Bridge which he might not win at the end of the day.

Richarlison

Emerging reports indicate that West London side Chelsea are already keeping tabs on Everton star Richarlison with the hope of securing his signature.

The Brazilian has been impressive for the Toffees this season and he has caught the attention of big sides following his big-money move from Watford

Richarlison is known to be a technically gifted player who has blended with the rigorous demands of the English Premier League and has been tipped to make a success at the Stamford Bridge.

There are fears that Everton will have to let him go against their wish with the big interest and the luring offer that would be submitted for his signature.

Everton paid a whopping sum of £50 million for the signature of Richarlison which means the Blues will have to go more than that if they must have his signature.

The West London side are battling with the form of their forward as Spanish Pedro and Brazilian international Willian are not firing at the moment which gives manager Maurizio Sarri little concern.

However, the former Fluminense has had 14 appearances under his belt so far this season and has been able to deliver 7 goals with an assist to confirm his presence.

Sad news for Chelsea fans ahead of January transfer

Chelsea fans

Reports coming in from West London side Chelsea might not be too good for the fans to learn as the possibility of having an addition of a striker in the winter transfer window has been ruled off.

This is the opinion of former Man United and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov when he hinted that there will not be a new signing for attackers in January.

Before this development, there have been speculations of expected deals in the winter window which so many names already mentioned as potential buys.

All of the speculations have come to be because of the poor form of the forwards at the Stamford Bridge at the moment which is gradually getting manager Maurizio frustrated.

The likes of Willian, Pedro, Olivier Giroud are all not in good form and the midfielders left with the responsibility of scoring goals for the club.

Dimitar Berbatov noted that the Italian boss has already given up on his side’s pursuit for the league title which means he will not be doing much as he will only work towards qualifying for the Champions league especially after their two defeats to Tottenham and Wolves respectively.

Also, Dimitar Berbatov stated that there has not been any open criticism of Giroud and Morata by the Chelsea boss.

Edinson Cavani

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri seems to be running out of patience with Spanish striker Alvaro Morata and has been shopping for a replacement for him ahead of the winter transfer window.

The former Real Madrid man has been goal shy and ineffective in the team alongside French man Olivier Giroud which leave the team at the mercy of the midfielders to deliver goals to the club.

The former Napoli boss is, therefore, making efforts to ensure a change in the bad form at the attack for the second stanza of the season which makes him go all out seeking for a striker.

Insinuations are that a new striker will be brought into the Stamford Bridge to add quality to the team and most importantly give the strikers a good competition.

However, reports claim that the Italian boss is now monitoring French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain striker Edinson Cavani striker with the hope of luring him to the West London when the winter transfer window is opened.

However, Sarri would be constrained by the fact that Edinson Cavani is already 31 and would not be favoured in the already existing policy at Chelsea which will not give any lucrative contract to anyone who is above 30.

Gary Cahill

The winter transfer window is getting closer as it reopens in coming weeks, hinting that West London side Chelsea are set to lose one of their most experienced central defender, Gary Cahill.

The England international is well known in the English league as one of the solid and experienced players in the league but he has been relegated in the ranks at the Stamford Bridge by manager Maurizio Sarri.

The Chelsea boss could not hide it by stating that he is well pleased with the partnership of David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger at his defence.

No wonder Gary Cahill has been left out of most Premier League games and that is no longer comfortable for the former Bolton star which makes him seek a move away from the club.

However, Turkish outfit Galatasaray have emerged as a strong suitor for Cahill as they wish to strengthen their defence with the Chelsea outcast knowing that his contract at the Stamford Bridge runs out at the end of the season.

This means that the six years spell of the England international with 189 appearances so far would come to an end in the summer.

Cahill has also enjoyed 61 England caps and was part of the team that made it to the FIFA World Cup in Russia earlier this year.

Cesc Fabregas

Italian Serie A giants AC Milan are hopeful of securing the signature Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas but will not be ready to pay more than £10 million in the coming winter transfer window.

Milan are desperate to have the former Barcelona star join the San Siro having identified him as an experienced and player of top quality that will help solve their midfield problem.

The Spaniard has severally voiced out his frustration at not being handed enough playing time by Italian manager Maurizio Sarri despite his confession that his age should not be an issue as he can still play more years of active football.

With Fabregas’ contract with the West London side running out at the end of the season, he has not been handed any new deal while negotiations are yet to be on the table for talks.

This hints that he is no longer needed at the Stamford Bridge and will have to move with the interest from the Italian side.

However, the major challenge in the deal will be the price to be paid for Fabregas with the Italian side insisting that they will not be interested any more should the English Premier League side request more than £10 million.

Michy Batshuayi

La Liga giants Real Madrid are in shock move or Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi ahead of the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

With the Spanish side currently struggling to win games, it is reported according to Spanish outlet Diario Gol that Los Blancos boss Santiago Solari is desperate to add more quality and competition to his attack in the winter window.

Santiago Solari is therefore reported to have identified Michy Batshuayi as the best fit knowing that he will not only be available but will also be secured at a cheap price.

Real Madrid have been able to monitor the progress of the star forward who is currently on loan with another Spanish side Valencia where he has scored just three goals so far this season.

Michy Batshuayi is obviously going to be released by the West London side knowing that he has failed to establish himself at the Stamford Bridge, as a result, he is currently having his second loan spell after the first with the German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund and scoring nine goals in 14 appearances.

However, Chelsea will be willing to cash in more than the £31.5 million that was paid for Michy Batshuayi when he joined Chelsea in the summer window of 2016 from Marseille.
