Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has reacted to the news of his invitation to the England senior national team setup.

Tammy Abraham was rewarded for his fantastic start to the new season with a call-up to the Three Lions of England squad ahead of the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria.

He took to his official Twitter handle to react to his invitation to the Three Lions of England squad.

Tammy Abraham was delighted with the England call-up as he posted his picture alongside other invitees from Chelsea like Fikayo Tomori, Mason Mount and Ross Barkley.

Chelsea have the highest number of representatives in the England squad named by manager Gareth Southgate earlier on Thursday.

Gareth Southgate unveiled a 25-man squad for the aforementioned Euro 2020 qualifiers on Thursday afternoon.

Tammy Abraham has been in very good form for Chelsea this season upon his return from a successful loan spell at Aston Villa whom he helped to secure a spot in the Premier League via the Championship playoffs.

He has already played for England twice in 2017 during the friendly games against Germany and Brazil but the 21-year-old could still represent another country if he has not played for England in a competitive game.

Report: Edouard Mendy’s Move To Chelsea All But Set

Various reports had said that West London giants Chelsea have finally reached an agreement to sign Senegalese international goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from his French team Rennes and popular journalist Fabrizio Romano has backed those reports.

According to the Italian journalist, Rennes and Chelsea have found an agreement for Mendy and that the Blues will announce his transfer from Rennes officially later this week especially on the back of the howler made by Kepa Arrizabalaga at the weekend.

Spanish shot stopper Kepa was highly culpable as his pass was stopped by Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane who found the back of the net afterwards to double his tally and also give the Reds their second goal.

Mane had earlier opened the scoring against 10-man Chelsea who had Danish centre back Andreas Christensen for a professional foul on Mane.

Apart from the error, Kepa Arrizabalaga had a good game but that won’t stopped Chelsea from signing Edouard Mendy after they agreed a €24m transfer for him.

The transfer was delayed reportedly because Rennes wanted a Chelsea player as part of the deal. The French club had asked for either Olivier Giroud or Fikayo Tomori but neither player will be moving to the club as part of the Edouard Mendy transfer.

Rennes have reportedly failed in a bid to add at least one Chelsea player to the deal for goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

According to French publication L’Equipe, Chelsea and Rennes have agreed a €25m deal for the shot stopper to move to Stamford Bridge.

It was also revealed that no Chelsea player will be included in the transfer.

Chelsea want to sign a new goalkeeper in the current transfer window and Rennes shot stopper Edouard Mendy has been identified as their target. The two clubs have been in discussion for the better part of this month and a deal was expected to have been concluded by now.

Initially, it was reported that Rennes were trying to sign a replacement for Mendy before an official announcement of his transfer to Chelsea was made. Granada goalkeeper Rui Silva and German international shot stopper Kevin Trapp were the potential replacements targeted by Rennes.

Afterwards, it was revealed that the issue of adding at least a Chelsea player (Fikayo Tomori or Olivier Giroud) was responsible for the delay in the announcement of the Eduardo Mendy transfer to Chelsea and not the matter of signing a replacement.

Eduardo Mendy will challenge Kepa Arrizabalaga and the ageing Willy Caballero for the number one shirt in the Chelsea goal once he completes his move to the club.

Man United and Chelsea had been linked with the signature of Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla earlier in this summer transfer window but from the latest report, he will be staying in Serie A.

It is confirmed that the 20-year-old will be parting ways with Serie A outfit Hellas Verona but he will remain in Italy with a move to Rome as AS Roma are reported to have agreed on terms with him.

Both Man United and Chelsea are believed to have a need for a defender this summer transfer window to be able to strengthen and fight for titles this season.

The Red Devils seek a partner with Harry Maguire, the reason why they showed interest in the Albanian defender but from all indications, they have met the dead rock.

Marash Kumbulla gained the attention he now has from a number of top European clubs as a result of his rigorous and no-nonsense style for his team. He has been tipped to be a good fit for the English Premier League because of his physicality.

Both the Blues and the Red Devils are yet to sort out their defensive needs as the West London club only secured Thiago Silva while United have been unable to do any defensive deal.

Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri is attracting keen interest from a Premier League club according to British media outlet TalkSports.

It was revealed that Premier League club West Ham United want to sign the 26-year-old from their fellow London team.

Hammers’ boss David Moyes wants to add quality to the left-back department of his team, and Emerson Palmieri is his prime target.

Left-backs Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku have not been able to convince David Moyes that they can consistently perform well for his team.

Aaron Cresswell is a shadow of the player that earned England caps, while Arthur Masuaku has flattered to deceive since signing for the club from Greek club Olympiacos.

Emerson Palmieri joined Chelsea from AS Roma for £17.5m in January 2018 and he has seven caps for the Italian national team.

He has made just 55 appearances for the Blues in his time at the club and the signing of another left-back in Ben Chilwell from Leicester City means that he would find regular playing time hard to come by.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has several options for the left-back position from the aforementioned Ben Chilwell to club skipper Cesar Azpilicueta to Marcos Alonso.

Inter Milan and Juventus are also big admirers of Emerson Palmieri in the transfer market.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has made a big prediction about Chelsea after the Blues splashed a lot of money on new signings this summer.

During his punditry job on Sky Sports, Gary Neville said that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will expect his club to fiercely challenge both Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title after spending a lot of money.

Manchester City and Liverpool are regarded as proper title challengers and Frank Lampard & his players could come under serious pressure if they don’t make a sustained challenge for the Premier League title.

Chelsea have spent over £200m on new signings this summer and that has raised expectations rapidly at the club with many believing that they have enough quality to fight for the league title.

Blues owner Roman Abramovich has spent the most money this summer since he bought the club in 2004 and the Russian would be expecting a good level of success from manager Frank Lampard who has been backed in the transfer market.

Chelsea have signed seven players this summer and the spendings won’t stop there as Senegalese international shot stopper Edouard Mendy is close to joining in a £23m deal including add-ons.

Mendy underwent his Chelsea medicals on Monday.

Declan Rice

English journalist Alex Crooks has revealed that Chelsea won’t be able to sign West Ham United star Declan Rice this summer despite the fact that the Blues are pushing for a deal to happen.

Chelsea have spent most of their money on new players in European football this summer but that has not stopped them from pursuing a deal for Declan Rice. Blues manager Frank Lampard is said to be a big admirer of the England international.

TalkSports expert Alex Crook said that Chelsea won’t be able to pull off a deal for Declan Rice as the transfer would require an outrageous offer from the Blues. Recent reports stated that Chelsea will have to spend at least £80m to sign Rice.

The journalist also established that West Ham United owners David Gold and David Sullivan are not ready to face another backlash with the sale of a top player like Declan Rice.

The West Ham owners were heavily criticised when they sold exciting winger Grady Diangana to newly promoted outfit West Bromwich Albion in an £18m and they don’t want a repeat with Declan Rice.

Rice was a Chelsea player before the club released him from the club at the age of 14.

Chelsea legend Alan Hudson has urged the Blues to sign Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in order to wrestle the Premier League title from Liverpool this season.

Alan Hudson told CaughtOffside that he would back Chelsea to win the Premier League title this season ahead of champions Liverpool and Manchester City.

According to him, the combination of Timo Werner and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the Chelsea forward line would be too deadly for the rest of the league to handle.

Chelsea have signed seven new players since the start of this transfer window in July but Alan Hudson is still not convinced about their status as a Premier League title challenger.

Alan Hudson also turned out for Arsenal during his glittering football career and he has praised Aubameyang for his quality.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been the major source of goals for the Gunners since joining in January 2018 in a £56m deal which was a club record.

He has scored four goals in his last three games for Arsenal including a brace in the FA Cup final. The Gunners beat Chelsea 2-1 in that game to lift the trophy for the 14th time.

Aubameyang has one year on his contract though several reports claimed that the Gabonese international has agreed a new three-year deal.
