Sources hinting at following Chelsea targets, when the ban ends I suppose.

- Jadon Sancho
- David Neres
- Ben Chilwell
- Nathan Ake
- Moussa Dembele (Lyon striker)

I don't see the top level ability in Neres. Highly skilled technically, but I don't think he's got enough about his game other than tricks and dribbling.

Sancho would be a dream, but let's not kid ourselves here. We won't get him. Too expensive, and will probably have his pick of clubs when he decides to leave.

Chilwell I don't see the need for as Emerson's showing how good he can be. Hard to see Chilwell coming to be a backup, or us spending the money that'd be needed to get him on a rotation player.

Ake I'd only be a fan of if he's brought in as a DM. As a CB I think he's just not good enough for a team with CL aspirations. But as a DM I still think he can be really good.

Finally Moussa Dembele. He'd be one of my top targets as well next summer. We'll need a new striker with Giroud and Batshuayi probably both leaving, and Morata as well to Atletico permanently. He's a very good all around striker, and together with Tammy he'd make for a very good strike force.

You’ve just copied carefree youths post off twitter at least credit him 🤔.


2.) 08 Sep 2019 08:33:15
I didn't mean to disrespect him :) indeed, CarefreeYouth is the one that posted this, and he usually knows his stuff. I don't have twitter, but his account is probably one of the 2 or 3 I sometimes check.

Didn't mention his name as I didn't want him to get stick on here for being a twitter source (as sometimes info from twitter gets a bit ridiculed on these sites; often with reason, but I do trust CarefreeYouth) .


3.) 08 Sep 2019 08:35:12
Having reread the post, I see how it could have came across wrongly, but in no way did I intend to pass this off as my information. I have never tried to do that, and won't start now as I simply don't have access to such information.

Have to wait till everything is reported like most of you!

Bit of chatter in today’s press that Chelsea are putting feelers out in respect of transfers for January, in other words some are suggesting the ban will be reduced to one window.
If, and a big if that is the case, I would not be at all surprised if there were to be one probably two incomings but to facilitate that several would leave likewise leave.

As for the players listed in the OP.
Sancho. Time will tell but I personally believe if CHO can be tied down and regains fitness he has as much potential as Sancho.
Chillwell is interesting and has the benefit of being HG. I personally like him as a player .
Neres. Don’t know a lot about him but not too sure the sort of position and indeed the type of player he is said to be is an area where we need to be looking at as a priority.
Dembelle. Yes please.


5.) 08 Sep 2019 18:06:35
Don’t worry pal you haven’t committed a crime your just passing information on.


6.) 08 Sep 2019 18:35:53
no idea why were are always linked to ake, no better than anything we have. Neres is lightweight and wouldn’t cope, Chilwell is good but why spend the money when Emerson is doing very well, and sancho anc dembele are must haves but would never leave in January.


7.) 09 Sep 2019 13:54:33
While I hope and believe our ban will be reduced to one window, I just can’t see us signing many, if any, players this mid-season!


8.) 10 Sep 2019 07:11:13
Dembele is a name that keeps getting mentioned on here and has been for a few years. Is he really that good? Have never really had the chance to see him play :)


 

 

20 Jul 2019 08:25:25
Ampadu on loan to Leipzig then it seems.

No easy assignment, but then he's an exceptional young player and pretty versatile, so there's merit to the decision. I'm happy they've decided to really challenge him.

He's going to play at a high level (including Champions League), under one of the best young coaches around (Nagelsmann) and in a competitive team that plays good football.

I'm really excited to see him get to work there, and I must admit I'll be a bit of a Leipzig fan as well this season.

Good luck, Ethan!

Jackson

1.) 20 Jul 2019 10:35:00
A reason to watch German football ahead of others for me.

Good luck Ethan.


2.) 21 Jul 2019 21:53:01
With the depth Leipzig have a centre half this seems pretty clear that the club intends to develop him as a defensive midfielder.


 

 

14 Jul 2018 18:14:01
Ed001, I just wanted to ask whether you know of Chelsea trying to sign another winger/ wide attacking player?

Pedro isn't starting caliber, and Willian has shown disrespectful behavior towards his coach (Conte) and is seemingly happy with a potential move to Barcelona if you believe reports. Then there's also Eden possibly leaving for Madrid :- (

Surely Chelsea are trying to sign some attackers? Have seen almost zero rumors. Malcom seems to be available for a decent price (around 40m perhaps) but I've heard of no interest from Chelsea.
Have you perhaps heard anything regarding the attacking spots?

Jackson

{Ed001's Note - I can't say I have heard of anything concrete mate. Sorry.}


1.) 14 Jul 2018 18:33:45
Hmm that doesn't sound promising :- ( Thanks anyway, Ed, it was worth a shot. Better prepare for another season of Pedro/ Willian starting.

{Ed001's Note - I doubt it will be like that, even if it is, Sarri's style of play should get more from them. However I would expect at least one to arrive.}


2.) 15 Jul 2018 10:34:59
And now it's looking likely Eden will leave. Man, this is not going to end well.


 

 

17 Apr 2018 23:12:20
Ed001, obviously our season hasn't gone as planned. A big reason, at least according to me, is our lack of a good partner to Kante in midfield. Bakayoko has struggled to settle down since about New Year's. He had some excellent performances earlier this season, but the bashing of fans and pundits seems to have destroyed his confidence. Hopefully he gets back to his good form after a summer of working on his game away from the spotlight.
Drinkwater's been a waste of money as he's been injured more often than not, and even when fit he hasn't been good enough.
Cesc just can't play in a midfield 2, and it hurts me to see him start every week.

So for this summer I really hope Chelsea target another CM. There are a couple that look really good, but haven't gotten the hype yet. That means that maybe we could get them for something like a reasonable price. Obviously I'd love a guy like Kovacic, Soler, Milinkovic-Savic or some other young star, but I don't see Chelsea getting involved in bidding wars for that type of player.
So here are a couple I wonder whether Chelsea has taken a look at or are interested in:

- Lucas Torreira: Napoli certainly interested. A young combative mid with good passing and technique.
- Emre Can: out of contract in the summer. And while I doubt he'd be interested in Chelsea over clubs like Juve I think he'd be a perfect partner to Kante. Tenacious and good on the ball, I really like him.
- Fabian Ruiz: enjoying his breakout season at Betis. A left footed midfielder with excellent technique (he's Spanish, so duh), good dribbling and looks quite happy to put in a shift defensively. I haven't seen a lot of hype surrounding him, so perhaps his price would still be reasonable.
- Morgan Sanson: he's having a pretty good season at Marseille. I know a lot was expected of him a couple of years ago, but then he had the bad injury. He seems to be back to his best form. Perhaps a bit more attack minded than the others, but I think he's a very interesting player.

So Ed001, do you know of any Chelsea interest in any of these (or other) CMs? I'd greatly appreciate it, as lord knows Chelsea needs another good CM (and they need to get rid of Fab and his wages) .

Furthermore, I hope life is treating you well, Ed. Wishing you all the best from afar!

Jackson

{Ed001's Note - from what I have been told there is interest in Torreira, though it looks like he will be the subject of a bidding war.

Sanson is someone that club have looked at for a while but I don't believe he is seen as the one for this role.

I don't know regarding Ruiz.

As for Can, it is difficult to know yet, until Prem teams can make offers to him. I do know he has been told there are a number of Prem teams interested in him, but I do not know which ones. Though I am 99% sure one is Man City. He certainly believes so.

Seri, Kondogbia, Brozovic, Andre Gomez and Doucoure are all ones that have been looked at. Though I would not be surprised to see van Ginkel being finally given a chance, as the club wants to start making use of the players they have out on loan.}


1.) 18 Apr 2018 06:34:08
Good day Ed; it could be Seri (the Ivorian) . Brozovic too isn't bad too if he comes in for Fabregas (cos he his younger, stronger than Fabregas and the game of a good creative central/ attacking midfielder- one that can play next to Kante) .

Ed; how true is the story of Seri waiting to know the manager will be next season before he can agree to a move to Chelsea?

Ed; does it mean that the club hasn't taken any look at Kovacic? He's such a good player.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know how true that is, perfectly possible though as he is looking to move, though I don't know of any current move agreed. He nearly moved in January to PSG but Ben Arfa, who was meant to go the other way in the deal, refused to consider any deal. I believe Ben Arfa was concerned about the quality of kebabs outside of Paris.... PSG still hold an interest in Seri though.

Madrid have a fair amount of interest in Kovacic to choose between, I believe Chelsea just do not want to get into a bidding war for him.}


2.) 18 Apr 2018 06:47:45
Hi Ed;
* with these names that you listed- does it mean that some midfielder (s) will leave the club this summer?

* if YES, will it be Bakayoko and/ or Drinkwater?

{Ed001's Note - the club are certainly very open to offloading Drinkwater. He is seen as a huge recruiting mistake.}


3.) 18 Apr 2018 07:07:45
Great input ED01 and really appreciated. Good to see a post from you Jackson as well, always a good read. I would like to see more of our loanees given a chance next Season and van Ginkle alongside Kante looks a good possibility.

{Ed001's Note - Chelsea have been looking into how to integrate them into the first team due to having so many move on and turn into players that should have been kept. So I would expect a number to actually get a chance over the next couple of seasons.}


4.) 18 Apr 2018 07:33:31
That is good news as far as I'm concerned. Why keep paying out on bang average players when we have some very good loan players. I would like to see Kenedy given a chance as a forward as well rather than a wing back which was never his position.


5.) 18 Apr 2018 13:23:42
Nzonzi would be great fit, depending on formation as he doesn’t really score or assist but can control a game.


6.) 18 Apr 2018 20:30:05
Thank you for the reply, Ed :) I like the part about loanees perhaps being given more of a chance. The likes of Van Ginkel, Loftus-Cheek, Mount, Ampadu (not a loanee but a young guy), Sterling and Hudson-Odoi all quite clearly have the talent to play for the 1st team. So I wouldn't mind seeing those get a shot.
Either we buy top class talents/ players, or we use the talent we have on our books already. I just want us to stop buying average players like Drinkwater and Barkley. That's the type of acquisition we have to avoid. Ampadu could've gotten all of Drinky's minutes this season and we wouldn't be any worse off.

About Sanson, I figured he wouldn't be looked at for that role. A bit more attacking, but if we're moving to a midfield 3 perhaps he wouldn't be a bad buy at all.
Torreira appears to be a no go then, if there's going to be a bit of a bidding war. And on Can, his wage demands would probably be through the roof as well since he's on a free.

And Ed001, if you don't know Fabian Ruiz you should really try to catch a Betis game or two. He's looking like quite a fantastic midfielder. Reminds me a bit of a left footed Andre Gomes at Valencia.

{Ed001's Note - I do know who he is, I mean I don't know if Chelsea have interest on him. I will ask my parents to find out, they know some staff at Betis so might be able to find out something.}


7.) 18 Apr 2018 21:53:46
Brilliant bit of info again Ed001 👌🏻.

{Ed001's Note - thank you.}


8.) 18 Apr 2018 22:59:11
Haha okay, sorry about the faulty interpretation in my part.

And that'd be great! Even though Chelsea probably aren't interested, it'd be fun to know which clubs are.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, I should have made it clearer.}


9.) 19 Apr 2018 06:26:23
Thanks Ed; for your response.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}


10.) 19 Apr 2018 06:41:49
This has been a good thread and indicitive of why I started coming on this site many moons ago. Great input from ED01.

{Ed001's Note - thank you.}


11.) 20 Apr 2018 00:47:41
Lucas Torreira is indeed a good player.


 

 

12 Feb 2018 22:18:04
Ed001, might not be Chelsea related, but going to ask here anyway as it relates to one of my favorite players right now.

I love Icardi as a striker. There are very few players that can match his intelligent movement and anticipation, and even fewer can match his finishing. He's absolutely sublime at scoring goals, and I've got no doubt he'd be a fantastic buy for any top club.

Now for the question. Ed002 stated that 2 clubs were/ are interested in buying Icardi. Real Madrid appears to be one. Ed001, would you happen to know who the other club is?
I remember a couple of summers ago (might be 2 years ago) that Ed002 said that Icardi was Chelsea's preferred striker target. I didn't get why at the time, but I've started following him since then and it's bloody obvious to me now :-P That's why I'm asking, could Chelsea be that other club interested in buying Icardi?

We desperately need some more quality in attack, that's for sure. So if you could help me out on this one I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, and have a good one, Ed001.

Jackson

{Ed001's Note - I believe that they are still interested yes, but it is Juventus I think are the other team as they spoke to his wife (who his agent) on a number of occasions about buying him. I agree with you he is a sublime player but he can be a bit of a problem for the team behind the scenes. There are a lot of reasons why Inter are a mess, but he has been one of the biggest dressing room problems all along, even before he stole his teammate's wife.}


1.) 13 Feb 2018 06:41:29
Hmm I was hoping he had improved on that part (character) since he's been made captain? Shame.
And do Juve really need to hoard all of Serie A's best players?! They're going all Bayern on their league, buying the other clubs' best players.

I appreciate the reply, Ed. I don't pop by that much anymore since I've started working. But still very thankful for all your knowledge and wisdom over the years.

{Ed001's Note - congrats on the job mate, far more important to earn your living after all. I hope it goes well for you.}


2.) 13 Feb 2018 12:16:27
Been working for exactly 3 months now. It's been a tough transition from university life :-P But it is interesting, and it funnily enough it gives perspective. I'm much calmer when watching Chelsea these days. Even when we're getting clobbered by sides like Watford and Bournemouth I'm not getting all worked up. Getting a job made it easier for me to accept that in the end Chelsea winning or losing won't change much :-)

Thanks, Ed! I'll try to pop by every once in a while. You guys remain the football legends ;-)

{Ed001's Note - give it another 3 months and the footie will become more important as it will be the escape from the grudgery of having to earn a living for a change ;-)


3.) 13 Feb 2018 15:27:19
Congrats Jackson may you be blessed with many happy hours in your job. Edo01 Thx for the hard work mate. really impressed with all the comments latelly and welcome back Edoo2.Give them Hell if the stalkers come with crap. Having happy thoughts about Chelsea giving it all in the last couple of matches of the year. Crunchtime is now. I for whould be hapoy with a top 4 finish and think that we will do so.

So, seems like Ampadu will get a loan. Hopefully to a PL team, he's definitely good enough.

Sad to see him leave for a season, but probably best. If the loan club is the right one then he'll play a lot more than he would do for us. Integrating Mount, Tammy and Reece this season would be a lot already. Then we can focus on integrating Ampadu the year after.

Jackson

1.) 16 Jul 2019 10:35:12
Gilmour would probably have been in the squad for Japan but being Scottish he has had to wait for another referendum so he could get a visa!


2.) 16 Jul 2019 14:13:03
Really pleased Ampadu going on loan., hope he goes somewhere we’re they have a position ready for him, don’t like him playing CB / DM, grab one position and make it his own, good good player, has that aggression I think christensen lacks.


3.) 16 Jul 2019 15:07:19
I think Ampadu should be perfect playing Centre half; besides, I agree that going on a two-year loan with option to recall will be perfect for him.


 

 

19 Jun 2019 20:15:44
Hi Ed002. Long time no speak, and I hope you're doing well?

I read on the United page that you expect Cech to do pretty well in the role he'll take up at Chelsea (and I'm not trying to put words in your mouth here, but I simply seem to remember you stating that) .
However, he's got no prior experience in that type of role, so I wonder why exactly you think he'll do well even though he's got no experience? Is it because there's a clear structure and framework in which he'll operate?

Thanks.

Jackson

{Ed002's Note - Well I don’t know what experience you think he is lacking.}


1.) 19 Jun 2019 22:07:44
Well, he's only ever played as a goalkeeper and has never been involved in a role behind the scenes, no?

So I guess experience at the kind of job he'll be performing for Chelsea.

{Ed002's Note - I am sure everyone here will look to trash him as soon as they can.}


2.) 20 Jun 2019 01:10:36
Ed any chance can say what cechs roles will be and what he will do? Thanks alot.

{Ed002's Note - It would be stupid for me to do so and will simply leade to abuse.}


3.) 20 Jun 2019 15:15:11
I for one can say that I'll never bash him.

But of course I can't ensure no one else will either.


4.) 20 Jun 2019 17:16:41
Cech has been around the club since he joined in 04/ 05 season, knows a lot of people in the club, is an extremely inteligent bloke from what I've read about him, can speak many languages. Im sure he will do just fine in the role he is given else why would they hire him.?

Have a day off.


5.) 20 Jun 2019 18:03:24
The guy is highly professional, intelligent, speaks several languages, knows the club, knows the league, is excellent with the press and is widely respected. Why does it matter what position he played? Van Der Sar is doing a decent job at Ajax isn't he?

I don't know the intricacies of his impending role at Chelsea, but he certainly seems like the type of character we should want to be involved, and successful, at the club.


6.) 21 Jun 2019 21:04:41
I never said I didn't want him, guys. Relax. Doesn't matter to me whether he was a GK or a striker. All I meant is he's never had a behind the scenes role, so in essence he's inexperienced with regards to the job he'll perform.

Nothing I said was incorrect.


7.) 22 Jun 2019 02:07:18
You’re absolutely right Jackson, I would assume he’ll get help early on in his role and work into being in complete control of his role. Inexperienced completely in the role but I’m sure he’ll do just fine!

Good to see you still posting mate.


8.) 22 Jun 2019 15:19:57
With some of the replies you get these days from fellow posters I don't think I'll chime in a lot more though.


 

 

07 Jun 2019 09:52:06
Btw, if the ban is postponed then we need to take a look at William Saliba. St-Etienne are apparently looking for a club to buy him but then loan him back for another season.

That would be excellent for us as we've got enough CBs with Luiz staying and that way he'd get to play lots of minutes. We need to be all over this. Similar to Zouma all those years ago :)

Jackson

1.) 07 Jun 2019 12:49:30
Why not just play Zouma duuuhhh?

We have plenty of young centre backs, if we sign one it should be a potential world class one i. e De Ligt, Romagnoli etc.


2.) 07 Jun 2019 13:06:39
Zouma is coming back in my imaginary scenario :)

Next season Rudi, Christensen, Zouma and Luiz. Then season after Saliba could replace Luiz.


3.) 07 Jun 2019 19:13:33
If it's true that St. Etienne want to loan him back for a season, we can sign him ban or not - the ban stops us registering players to play not signing players.


4.) 07 Jun 2019 19:37:19
Personally id like to see Luiz in midield as back up now. You're forgetting Ampadu as well. Id expect something better from you Jackson sounds like something G8 would say tbh LOL.


5.) 07 Jun 2019 22:46:11
We know it is you King Frank. BlueDragon, Chosen 1.Lol.


6.) 08 Jun 2019 11:11:47
I kinda prefer Ampadu in midfield :)


 

 

07 Jun 2019 09:07:17
So. The club have now appealed to CAS after all.

I would've taken the ban now as Jovic should've been the main target. But as he's joined Madrid I thought we'd have been fine with loanees returning for the other spots.

Guess we'll see what happens.

Jackson

1.) 07 Jun 2019 13:30:58
Apparently we have not applied to freeze the ban in the mean time.


2.) 07 Jun 2019 18:58:17
Don't know if this is true but CAS can freeze the ban themselves unless we've asked them not to. Personally i think we'll start serving the ban this summer but hope CAS will reduce it to one window so we'll be able to buy players come January.


3.) 07 Jun 2019 19:56:47
The January window is useless.


 

 

26 May 2019 12:16:56
So, it seems like Jovic would prefer PL or Serie A to the Spanish league.
If there's one player we should target then it's him. We need a striker, he likes Premier League. And while I know it's not near to as simple as that, I really do still hope we can get him.

If there is a god.

Jackson

1.) 26 May 2019 17:24:06
It's no coincidence that Chelsea will appeal to CAS next week. Fingers crossed 😊.


2.) 26 May 2019 18:09:51
Probably is coincidence though haha.


3.) 26 May 2019 18:26:23
Jovic, Pepe and Chilwell I’d love 👌🏻.


4.) 27 May 2019 13:07:45
I get this strong feeling that Chelsea will sign Luka Jovic and Joao Felix if things with CAS progress quick and well.

Moussa Dembélé or Seb Haller would be good choices probably. We've always done well with a strong forward to hold up the ball and occupy the CBs. Haller would fit that role perfectly.

Moussa Dembélé is more all around but I've read he's really good with his back to goal play as well. I'd take either in a heartbeat.

He's certainly started the season off with a bang!

Both Anjorin and Gilmour are still young (Anjorin doesn't turn 18 till November I think! ), But maybe they get an appearance or 2 in the early cup rounds. Anjorin looks like another Loftus-Cheek in the making.

To be honest, Azpi's played so much football over the past year, I think he's just lost a little sharpness. You'd have to look long and hard to find another outfield player that's amassed as many minutes as he has since he joined us. He's lost some speed and has looked winded in our matches so far.

I think there's a real chance James overtakes him this season. He's more dynamic, much stronger in attack and still good in defense as well. It's imperative we keep Azpi around for his experience, same as Pedro. But I could see him becoming the back up over the course of the season.

Can't sign players on loan either. But if they're willing I'd certainly take him next summer. Either him or Moussa Dembélé.

Kante wasn't out of position really. He's always been best as a box to box. Maybe he should've been deployed a bit further back, but how much of a difference does that really make?

He's still improving and that's the only thing that matters. World class.

Jackson
