It is becoming obvious that English Premier League outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is becoming increasingly frustrated at the lack of cutting edge of his strikers and he is keen to make a change without any delay.

Most importantly, the Italian manager seems to have lost patience with Spanish striker Alvaro Morata who has been in poor form and he is willing to do away with him.

It was earlier reported that the former Real Madrid striker will be offered to Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan in exchange for Gonzalo Higuain in the January window but that plan might have changed with the report that he will now be heading to the Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla.

Morata has played a number of games without enough goals, scoring just 7 times across all competitions which is not enough to help the West London club with their bid to secure a Champions League qualification for next season with a top four finish.

However, Morata seems reluctant to leave the Stamford Bridge but there is no doubt he would be shown the way out should an offer comes in and should the West Londoners secure a replacement for him in this winter transfer window.

Frank Lampard

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is still hoping that Brazilian international Willian will remain at the club for more seasons by signing a new deal this summer window.

The contract of the 31-year-old is set to come to an end as he has been unable to negotiate new terms with the club. His wish of a three-year-deal might not be granted and that makes him close to the exit door.

Frank Lampard expressed his love for the player, insisting that he wants him to remain at the club but whatever decision is made at the end of the day will be good for both parties.

He admitted knowing nothing about the negotiation between Willian and the club but is sure the right decision would be made in the interest of the two parties.

However, Chelsea have already secured the signature of two forwards, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech from RB Leipzig and Ajax respectively which means there would be a level of cover for him when he leaves.

North London outfit, Arsenal are already on standby to snap up the signature of the Brazilian international with manager Mikel Arteta very keen to add his experience to his squad ahead of the coming season.

Should Chelsea listen to the words of former Tottenham and Man United striker Dimitar Berbatov, they will be moving to the Spanish La Liga club, Atletico Madrid for the signature of Jan Oblak this summer transfer window.

The West London outfit are no longer comfortable with the performance of Kepa Arrizabalaga with Frank Lampard considering another option for next season’s challenge.

The Blues have already secured the signatures of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech and are now focused on landing Bayern Leverkusen star Kai Havertz as their next target.

Dimitar Berbatov has therefore stated that the Blues team should ensure the Atletico Madrid shot-stopper is made the next target to have a complete team for next season’s campaign.

According to him, the Frank Lampard team will surely struggle without a better goalkeeping option, stressing that they will have a great one in Jan Oblak.

Meanwhile, Man United have since indicated an interest in the signature of the Atletico Madrid player as they are also unsatisfied with the performance of Spanish goalkeeper, David De Gea.

However, the La Liga club values the Jan Oblak very high and are not interested in losing him despite making his £130 million price tag known to the suitors.

Dean Henderson

West London club, Chelsea will have to wait for the next two weeks to know their fate on the availability of Man United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, reports claim.

The Blues are reported to be in search of a new goalkeeper with reports that Frank Lampard has had enough of the mistakes by Kepa Arrizabalaga with fans also calling for his sale in the summer transfer window.

Chelsea are have identified Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak as their major target but he seems not to be available as the Spanish La Liga outfit are not willing to part ways with him anytime soon.

The West London club will, therefore, be turning their attention to Dean Henderson who is having a good loan spell with Sheffield United. The best and quality of the goalkeeper was known after the restart of the Premier League and that has drawn attention from Chelsea.

However, to ensure his future is guaranteed with a first-team role, Dean Henderson seeks to sit with his real owners, Man United to have their words of a role over out-of-form David De Gea.

Should Man United fail to assure him, he will not be signing a new deal with the club and will force his move to the Stamford Bridge.

Willian

North London club, Arsenal have been told that securing the service of West London club, Chelsea player Willian is bad business for the club as it will affect the progress of their young stars.

The Gunners are keen on the signature of the Brazilian international as he is yet to agree on a new deal with the Blues team despite the efforts by manager Frank Lampard to convince the club of a new deal for the player.

The Gunners are hoping that Willian will leave the Stamford Bridge as a free player in this summer transfer window so as to tie him up at the North London with a deal.

However, Former Tottenham striker Darren Bent said the Gunners should not invest in Willian because he will block the chances of younger players who are already progressing well at the Emirates Stadium.

Ben Chilwell

Man United were earlier reported to be leading in the race for Leicester City left full-back, Ben Chilwell but that seems to have been lost with Chelsea papering on the scene.

The Blues and the Red Devils are keen to bolster their defence and the Leicester City defender is an option for both clubs ahead of the summer transfer window.

From every indication, the West London outfit is winning the race for Ben Chilwell with The Mirror reporting that he is set to hand a transfer request to the Foxes for a move to the Stamford Bridge.

Leicester City failed to make it to the Champions League after they were defeated by Man United. Ben Chilwell will be hoping to take advantage of that as he wants that level of European experience in the coming season.

Frank Lampard will now have the service of the left full-back if an agreement is reached with the club on his release clause before the summer transfer window is closed as his contract with the Foxes runs until 2024.

However, the West London outfit will not have the service of Ben Chilwell any cheap as the England international left full-back has been valued for £80 million.

Willian

Before now, it was reported that Arsenal’s chances of snapping up the signature of Brazilian international Willian from Chelsea are very high and a deal was expected as soon as the summer transfer window is opened.

Willian’s contract with the West London outfit is set to expire at the end of the season and a new contract has not been handed to him. Both parties have disagreed in terms of a new contract.

The Brazilian international is requesting for a 3-year-deal which is against the Blues policy for players who are over 30, the reason why talks of a move away from the Stamford Bridge was hyped with Arsenal planning to take advantage of the situation to get the player.

That may no longer happen again with Sky Sports reporting that Chelsea are already winning on the negotiation table as they are already reaching an agreement with the Brazilian star.

Frank Lampard is a big fan of Willian and is ready to work with him in the coming season, the reason why he reportedly influenced the decision of the club to keep the star player beyond the coming season, a development that will hand a big blow to Arsenal’s transfer plans for the Chelsea player.

Dean Henderson

Chelsea had earlier made inquiries about the availability of Dean Henderson, ahead of the summer transfer window but the player’s owners, Man United blocked the chances of his move to the Stamford Bridge.

The West London outfit seem to be running out of patience with goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and has been in the news for a new hunt, with Man United stopper, Dean Henderson highly considered.

Dean Henderson has been on loan with Sheffield United. His performance has impressed a number of clubs and pundits, especially after the restart of the Premier League. No wonder he is attracting interest from Chelsea.

However, it is now reported that Dean Henderson is considering favouring a move to Chelsea but that is highly dependent on his talks with his real owners within the weeks.

It is reported that Dean Henderson seeks assurance and guarantee from manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he would be given the first-choice role ahead of David De Gea or will not sign a new deal with the club.

From every sporting calculation, it means, he would be readily available for the Blues as it is very unlikely that he would be given that trust ahead of the Spanish goalkeeper despite his blunders in recent games.
