Chelsea to revisit transfer target in January

Chelsea have a new boss but it appears that they will still persist with the pursuit of former targets based on reports. The Blues may still make a move for Inter Milan right-back Denzel Dumfries in the January transfer window. The Dutchman has been impressive in Serie A with Inter Milan and his work rate and attacking prowess make him a good fit for some of the biggest clubs in the Premier League with Chelsea leading the race. According to Corriere dello Sport, Chelsea plan to make a move in January and won't mind having the player remain with Inter on loan for the rest of the 2022/23 season before making a permanent move next summer.

Aubameyang Shocked At The Turn Of Events At Chelsea

Chelsea goalie Kepa Arrizabalaga has revealed that new striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyand is shocked after his tough start to life as a player of the club. The Gabonese striker joined Chelsea on the summer transfer window deadline day after a short spell with Barcelona. It was believed that Aubameyang was keen to rekindle his relationship with former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel who managed him during his days at Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga. However, the reunion was not meant to last long as Tuchel was relieved of his managerial position at Stamford Bridge after the UCL defeat to Dinamo Zagreb and has since been replaced by former Brighton and Hove manager, Graham Potter.

Tuchel Blasts Players After UCL Loss To Dinamo Zagreb

Chelsea FC were stunned away from home by supposed group whipping boys Dinamo Zagreb in their first group game of the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League with a 1-nil loss. The Blues' boss Thomas Tuchel has come out to criticize the players for the huge underperformance they put up, noting that they lacked hunger and intensity throughout the game. The only goal in the game was scored by Mislav Orsic at the Maksimir Stadium after a solo run to slot past new big-money signing Wesly Fofana, to slot past Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal for the Premier League outfit. Tuchel bemoaned his side's performance and admitted that he did not see it coming as they fell to a third consecutive loss away from home. READ: How Much Does a Premier League Referee Earn?

Chelsea Identify Three Alternatives To Jules Kounde

The transfer battle between Chelsea and Barcelona this summer continues to rage as recent reports suggest that the Blues could eventually miss out on the signature of Sevilla defender Jules Kounde as the Catalans look set to hijack the deal. The Frenchman has established himself as one of the solid center-backs in La Liga and it appears that may opt to remain in Spain instead of move away from the La Liga. Therefore, Chelsea may have to look elsewhere for alternatives and a report from the Evening Standard suggests that they have identified three possible targets namely; Inter Milan's Milan Skriniar. PSG's Presnel Kimpembe, and RB Leipzig's Josep Gvardiol. READ: Arsenal Ruthless In Pre-Season; Can They Sustain The Form? The deal for Kounde is complicated with the player's final...

Chelsea FC Player Salaries 2022 Chelsea FC is one of the best football clubs in England and attained a big reputation in European club football under the ownership of Roman Abramovich. However, he has since been replaced by American businessman Todd Boehly. The Blues as they are fondly called, are presently under the management of German tactician Thomas Tuchel.

The history of Chelsea’s big-money strikers

Image Credit: “Didier Drogba”, by rayand licensed under CC BY 2.0 Since Roman Abramovich became the owner of Chelsea in 2003, the west London side have signed 22 strikers, including Romelu Lukaku twice. It is fair to say those signings have brought varying degrees of success, and have come at vast expense. The struggles of Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku this season have been well noted, and Chelsea’s failure to score enough goals from their attacking players under Thomas Tuchel has been a primary reason they have fallen away from Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the league. According to odds sourced via GamblingDeals, the Blues are now 13/2 to retain their CL title and will need Lukaku and Werner to find some form if they want to achieve that goal. In this article...

Chelsea 2021-22: What to expect from the season ahead

Winning the UCL in grand style would relax nerves and dampen the pressure in many top teams in Europe but not at Chelsea.  Four European trophies in 10 years perfectly depict the hunger for success at Chelsea and it will be the same in the coming season.  Here’s a quick look at how things might be next season in the various departments of the current European champions. Goalkeeping The acquisition of Edouard Mendy from Rennes proved to be arguably the best piece of business Chelsea did last summer. With 24 clean sheets in 43 appearances, no other goalkeeper in Europe had a better season statistically.  Compared to the previous season that saw Kepa Arrizabalaga fluff his lines so much, the solidity of the Chelsea backline was down to Mendy’s wonderful performances between the sti...

Chelsea’s treatment of Abraham leaves much to be desired

Chelsea emerged victoriously in the UEFA Champions League in the 2020/21 season in a short time under Thomas Tuchel, and it remains the talking point at the club ahead of the 2021/22 season. The triumph was one that nobody saw coming, considering how they struggled under Frank Lampard before the arrival of the German. Despite this major success, one issue at the club leaves much to be desired and it is the club's or maybe Tuchel's treatment of Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham. It's no more news that loyalty in the game favors the bosses and I wrote an article concerning the issue some time ago. Tammy Abraham was one of the stars whom the onus fell on to help Chelsea maintain their place in the Premier League during the transfer ban under a manager who was still learning the ropes....

Mason Mount is a force that has come to stay

The transfer ban against Chelsea did them a lot of good and continues to do so even after the departure of Frank Lampard. The Englishman was tasked with managing the Blues during the torrid period of no major acquisitions and he chose to stick with one young English player who has proven that he has the quality to thrive on the biggest stage if handed the opportunity. Chelsea have never been known to rely on players from their academy but had no choice but to do so in the 2019/20 football season as the likes of Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori, Reece James, and Mason Mount took up important roles in the team. Mason Mount was one player who never got the credit he deserved in his first season as a regular first-team player at Stamford Bridge. Many pundits and fans believed that he was ...

Blues and Foxes deprived each other on separate fronts

The FA Cup final at Wembley was one game that Chelsea went into as favorites but ended up losing as Leicester City were up for it, with the London outfit not being able to breach their backline successfully. A screamer by Youri Tielemans was enough to settle the matter on the day as the Foxes won another major silverware after their Premier League triumph some seasons back. It can also be recalled that ahead of the FA Cup final, there was also little concern about who would finish in the top four as both sides who thought they were home and dry allowed Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool back into the race for a place in the top four with their inconsistencies. The two sides were to face each other in another season-defining game in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge. THE BEST SITES FO...
