Olivier Giroud

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has said that he might need to leave the Premier League club in a bid to stay in the French team ahead of the 2020 edition of the European Championship.

Giroud hinted at a Chelsea exit during his latest interview as monitored by popular English news outlet Metro.

According to him, he’s not happy at the lack of playing time at Chelsea under new manager Frank Lampard and that the solution could be to leave the club when the winter transfer window reopens in the New Year.

Giroud spoke ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifier at home to Turkey which ended in a score draw.

Olivier Giroud came off the bench to give France the lead on 76 minutes thus putting them well on course for qualification to Euro 2020.

The qualification was then halted by a late equaliser from Kaan Ayhan for Turkey who maintained their position as leaders in Group H.

Olivier Giroud has had to endure lack of playing time at Chelsea this season with new manager Frank Lampard turning to younger players to move the club forward.

England international Tammy Abraham has led the line for Chelsea this season and Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi has been his deputy for the larger part of the season with Giroud now the third choice striker.

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.

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.

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.
