Samuel Chukwueze

English Premier League club, Chelsea might boast of a number of attacking players in their team but that will not stop them from investing in the signature of Nigeria international Samuel Chukwueze from Spanish La Liga outfit Villarreal.

Samuel Chukwueze was the target for the west london outfit even before they made a move for Kai Havertz the last summer but they were able to convince the La Liga outfit to sell the youngster.

The Nigeria international has scored a total of 12 goals and assists in the last two La Liga seasons, and boats of 143 dribbles attempted since the start of the last campaign. There are not more than five players that can break his record in La Liga.

90min report that the West London outfit are not alone in the chase of the 21-year-old forward as other Premier League teams, including Leicester City, Man United, Chelsea, and Everton are all showing interest to sign him.

Samuel Chukwueze has a release clause of £80m in his current deal as he is highly valued by the club but it is yet to be seen if his suitors will pay such an amount for the Nigerian forward.

Chelsea have got a number of attacking players in the team and they are also very productive but Frank Lampard is considering making a return for Samuel Chukwueze especially as France international forward Olivier Giroud seeks to leave the club in the January window.

However, the Blues owner Roman Abramovich has reportedly made it clear that he will not be signing an attacking player or a midfielder in the coming transfer windows because he wants to protect the current crop of players in his team.

Frank Lampard has only been assured that he can bring in a defender to the team when the January transfer window is opened.

English Premier League outfit Manchester United are reported to be considering a move for out-of-favor Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante after making an inquiry about his availability.

The 29-year-old World Cup winner has been linked away from the West London club as he can no longer boast of regular playing time under manager Frank Lampard.

Chelsea are willing to let go of the former Leicester City man but will not let him leave for a cheaper price than £46 million as a lot has been invested in him.

The Blues are also keen on the signature of West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice and will want to offload the French midfielder to be able to bring in the Englishman.

However, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now considering the option of signing him if an agreement would be reached with the West London club.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants an extra muscle to his midfield that will help Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek and N’Golo Kante is being considered as an option.

The only uncertainty is the fact that the £46 million might be too high for the Red Devils to meet and that could force them to back out of the deal in January.

Olivier Giroud

Olivier Giroud will definitely leave Chelsea in January, read below why we thing the EPL giant will sell him in January transfer window.

West London outfit Chelsea were one of the busiest Premier League clubs in the last summer transfer window, spending about £200 million on the recruitment of players.

It is expected that they will take the back seat in the January transfer window, especially as they are currently in good form and producing positive results but that might not happen in the real sense of it.

However, the Blues might not necessarily bring in a player but they seem sure to sanction a sale with French striker Olivier Giroud making it clear that he wants to leave in the January winter transfer window.

This is not the first time the former Arsenal player will be making moves to leave Stamford Bridge as he also made such an effort in the last January window after he failed to make Frank Lampard’s team but it did not happen.

However, Chelsea must begin to find a replacement for the World Cup winner as they will have Tammy Abraham as the pony natural striker to rely on. The presence of Timo Werner in Chelsea has helped to strengthen the attack but that does not mean a new striker will not be signed should Oliver Giroud leaves the club in January.

Frank Lampard seems to be a big fan of the 34-yer-old after showing praise on his last week.

“He has given a typically great response to train as well as possible and support the group,” he said.

“He is amazing around the group and that is just a fact with Oli and maybe not a fact with people all around the team.

“I can’t speak highly enough of him on that side. It is part of my job I don’t like with good players, top people who are around the group that don’t always play. But I have those issues” he said.

Oliver Giroud would be remembered for scoring eight goals in the final 13 league games to help Chelsea secure a top-four finish.

“Kante is the player who would allow PSG to win the Champions League. They do not need [Lionel] Messi or anyone [else].”
