Tomas Kalas

English Championship club Bristol City have signed defender Tomas Kalas from Premier League giants Chelsea after his successful loan spell with the Robins last summer.

His transfer was confirmed by the Championship club on Monday evening.

Tomas Kalas spent last season on loan at Bristol City from Chelsea and it turned out to be hugely successful.

The 26-year-old was one of the best players for Bristol City in the last campaign as the Robins missed out on the playoffs at the end of the regular Championship season.

The Czech Republic international Kalas was one of the longest-serving players at Chelsea whom he joined as a teenager nine years ago.

The Bristol City centre back spent the majority of his Chelsea career away from the club.

Kalas was a key player for West London club Fulham during the 2017/18 season as he helped the Cottagers secure promotion to the Premier League.

Fulham didn’t survive the Premier League after they suffered relegation from the top flight of English football during the recently concluded season.

Bristol City have sealed a permanent deal for Tomas Kalas for a reported fee of around £8m in addition to weekly wages said to be £25,000.

The Czech Republic defender would be the highest earner at Bristol City in addition to his record transfer fee.

Chelsea fans won’t like this as Kante’s Stamford Bridge career might be over

NGolo Kante

Emerging reports claim that France international N’Golo Kante is a surprise name on the list of expected exits as he might be sold by the West London outfit Chelsea in this summer transfer window.

The reports claim that the World Cup winner could be sold to accommodate Kai Havertz from German Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen ahead of the summer transfer window.

The asking price for Kai Havertz is around the region of £90 million and that looks too high for the Blues and they are imploring all options to make a deal happen, the reason why they could cash in on the former Leicester City midfielder to sanction a deal.

N’Golo Kante has not been a regular under the manager Frank Lampard reigns and his current fate at the club started with the reigns of former manager Maurizio Sarri who brought in Jorginho from Napoli to take up the midfield role.

Chelsea have already spend heavily to bring in Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech ahead of the coming season with expectations that Kai Havertz will help to balance the team.

This, therefore, means that N’Golo Kante could be shown the way out with Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid reported to be interested in his signature.

Lampard to spoil Juventus party ahead of summer window

If the claim credited to Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard is anything to go by, Italian international Jorginho will not be leaving the Stamford Bridge this summer transfer window despite speculations.

Jorginho has not been a part of the Frank Lampard team since the restart of the league as the Chelsea legend has his attention on a younger squad that has been working for him. He was only handed 10 minutes of play from the bench against Crystal Palace, making speculations of Juventus’ interest in the midfielder to come alive with manager Maurizio Sarri reported to be keen on a reunion with his former player.

However, Lampard has not viewed the situation in the same light after claiming that Jorginho is an important player in the West London outfit, hinting that he would be staying ahead of the summer window.

Giving reasons why he has not been playing Jorginho, Lampard claims to be having selection issues, citing N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, and Gilmour as other options available for selection. He added that Mason Mount, Ross Barkley, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are other options in the advanced role at the midfield which makes playing time for Jorginho difficult.

Juventus will be left disappointed if Jorginho fails to make a move as he is already in next season’s plan for manager Maurizio Sarri.

Two English Premier League clubs Chelsea and Man United are set for a battle off the pitch over the signature of Panarol teenage star Facundo Pellistri ahead of the summer transfer window.

Both clubs are keen on the star player and have set a target of the summer transfer window to snap him up.

Facundo Pellistri has impressed with his Uruguayan club and could be set for Europe with interests growing over his signature.

Italian Serie A champions Juventus are also reported to have been monitoring Facundo Pellistri and will make a bid for him in the summer window.

His Uruguayan club are willing to let him go for a £10 million fee which all suitors are willing to pay but Chelsea is tipped to be favourites, reason why manager Frank Lampard is making efforts to act fast.

Both Man United and Chelsea will be busy in this summer transfer window as they look to compete for titles in the coming season.

The Blues team has already confirmed two signings, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech from RB Leipzig and Ajax respectively but are looking to add more while Man United is focused on finishing the season before engaging in the summer transfer market.

Why Chelsea’s new signings could make no meaning next season

No surprise, Chelsea fans are already in a light mood ahead of next season after seeing their team complete two major signings.

Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech have both been confirmed to fly the Blues colours ahead of the coming season and the club is already preparing to confirm a deal for Kai Havertz which is no doubt a major boost for the Frank Lampard team.

There are, therefore, suggestions that all the good signings for the attacking roles might just end up in a mess if there is no major reinforcement of the defensive roles.

The Blues need depth in the defence if they must succeed in their bid to win titles in the coming season.

Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell and West Ham United star Declan Rice have both been linked as options for buys by Chelsea but a deal is yet to happen.

Commentators claim that Chelsea must get the West Ham United player even if they are unsuccessful in their bid for the Leicester City man.

Declan Rice has been heavily linked and no doubt he seeks a move to Chelsea. He has been tipped to be the new John Terry at the Stamford Bridge.

West Ham are asking for a £80 million fee which is argued to be too high but Declan Rice’ signature has been tipped to make the attacking recruits more effective.

Olivier Giroud

English Premier League outfit are feared to part ways with France international striker Olivier Giroud in the summer transfer window.

The 33-year-old has been receiving interest from a number of clubs and the latest from Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan seems irresistible for a new challenge.

The decision to let go of Olivier Giroud or keep him has been a difficult one to make for Chelsea because of a number of factors surrounding the team.

While Chelsea can boast of new additions of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech to boost their attack, analysis hints that the experience of the former Arsenal striker is still needed at the club, knowing his contribution at the moment. He could also be an option for the team.

Inter Milan also seek to land Emerson Palmieri in the coming summer transfer window with the player reportedly ready to hand his club a transfer request because he can no longer boast of a starting role under manager Frank Lampard.

Tottenham and West Ham United are also keen on the signature of Emerson Palmieri and will compete with Inter Milan but Italian Serie A outfit is his preferred destination because of his wish to work with Antonio Conte.

Aaron Ramsey

Emerging reports reveal the possibility of former Arsenal player and Juventus ace Aaron Ramsey returning to the English Premier League in the coming summer transfer window.

Life has not been the same for the Wales international since he left Arsenal on a free deal to join the Italian Serie A giants after his contract expired. His journey with the club has not been smooth. He has not been a regular as expected.

It is, therefore, claimed that Juventus are keen on the signature of Chelsea star Jorginho and are ready to release Aaron Ramsey as bait to have the Italian international.

Jorginho seems also not needed at the Stamford Bridge which makes a deal likely as Chelsea will not mind the idea of having Aaron Ramsey at the club.

Aaron Ramsey has a good knowledge of the English Premier League and was highly rated and wanted by the Blues team before his exit from England.

Jorginho is also needed at Juventus with manager Maurizio Sarri hoping on a reunion with the Italian midfielder.

However, the Italian Serie A outfit are also ready to add Adrien Rabiot in the deal that will have Jorginho join the club ahead of the new season.

Mourinho

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho could be set to return to his former team Chelsea to snap up the signature of Kurt Zouma ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Portuguese manager is a big fan of Kurt Zouma as they both worked together at the Stamford Bridge when he was in charge. He, therefore, hopes to reunite with him on the other side of London.

Jose Mourinho has, therefore, expressed confidence as Chelsea seems not to be interested in keeping Kurt Zouma for another season. He has not been in his best under manager Frank Lampard and has not been favoured for selection so far this season.

However, Chelsea are willing to let go of the player for a fee of £25 million which manager Jose Mourinho is ready to meet, according to The Express.

However, there are possibilities that the West London outfit will not let go of Kurt Zouma if they fail to land their defensive target Declan Rice from West Ham United.

Chelsea are keen on Declan Rice and have identified him as the new John Terry who will make good success at the Stamford Bridge but West Ham United are unwilling to let him go, claiming they are confident of keeping the young defender for another season.

Jorginho

The future of Italian midfielder Jorginho with English Premier League outfit Chelsea is bleak as he has not been a major part of the team of lately.

When Jorginho joined Chelsea after he was signed up by Maurizio Sarri, he became a regular, displacing N’Golo Kante from the heart of the Blues middle.

The story immediately changed when manager Frank Lampard took over the job as he had his preference for selection and that may have been working for him.

Gary Neville stated that it is obvious that Jorginho will no longer be needed at the Stamford Bridge because Frank Lampard has a clear plan for the club.

The former Man United player told Sky Sports that Frank Lampard wants to build a young and hungry team and Jorginho could fall short of the attributes.

He noted that the same clear plan was what led to the exit of David Luiz from the Stamford Bridge to North London outfit Arsenal.

However, Sarri seems to be interested in working with Jorginho again and has made him a target for his Italian Serie A outfit Juventus in the coming summer transfer window.

It will not be a thing of surprise if Jorginho’s move to Juventus is dusted when the summer window is opened.
