Ed002, are Chelsea interested in:

1) Nicolo Barella
2) Joachim Andersen
3) Eric Garcia

Thanks in advance!

{Ed002's Note - (1) Chelsea have been in the past but Inter are not looking to sell. (2) No, but others are. (3) No, he is moving elsewhere.}

Just seen an old rumour that inter want emerson, would love to see emerson go and hakimi come other way,

Hakimi can only play as a right wing-back as far as I know - we already have CHO and Reece James in that position.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Apr 2021 17:39:25
Cho can play further up, competition for Reece and hakimi? Ed’s have mentioned hakimi as azpi replacment,

Agree1 0Disagree

I would snap their hands off immediately. not that Emerson has been a regular and hakimi is a class playercsn also evore. Much like Alonso dom needed for how TT play. good enough to replace CA and provide the needed motivation for Reece James. Big teams have options in all the positions.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Apr 2021 19:44:12
Is hakimi any good defensively? As in could he play on the right of a back 3, big strong fast but completely different position,

{Ed077's Note - Hakimi's strength isnt in defensive work IMO. I wouldnt think he would be ideal as a RCB in a back 3.}

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2021 08:25:25
It all depends on who exits this club come the summer window and if we do 5 at the back or 4 at the back. Hakimi would be awesome but id say it will happen if CA retires and we move to a back 4 to give cover to RJ . i doubt Hakimi would move to be second choice to RJ.

plus we may also look to youth.

I can’t see Dave retiring or leaving before the end of next season.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2021 09:09:46
CA is only 31, he has lost his pace but is still a very go defender. he still has a good 2-3 more years on him at the evry top.

Agree0 0Disagree

I can see Azpilicueta finishing off his career in Bilbao.

Ed002 reports in spain saying atletico could look to sell gimenez and chelsea could come back for him if they are willing to negotiate, is he still a target and any truth thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Jose Gimenez (CB) Atletico still have serious money problems that they can resolve by selling one of Oblak or Saul but will fight to keep Koke and Gimenez. Manchester City and Chelsea have each been quoted the full €120M cash payment required to even have Gimenez consider a move. Nothing has changed that I am aware of.}

That's some ridiculous money for a defender who may or maynot cut it in the pl. Ed002 would Chelsea be willing to pay that kind of money?

Will Silva's contract be extended for another year?

We have 5 CB to 3 positions. do you see any of them leave this summer window?

{Ed002's Note - No, probably, yes.}

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Apr 2021 16:10:55
I will try to ask, since it cannot hurt. Would Atletico then consider letting Oblak leave for less than his release clause? If we're still looking for a keeper, there's no-one better than him, IMO at least.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2021 17:45:28
I would test the keeper search now with Mendy having proved good enough and a a shrrwf signing. a back up should be targeted instead.

Jorginhos agent apparently talking about jorg wanting a return to Italy,

Believable2 0Unbelievable

08 Apr 2021 17:00:34
But also didn't he say he thinks the club will want to discuss a new contract?
I am sure the club would accept an offer of around £40m but in the current climate that seems unlikely.
The challenge this summer will be to find buyers for the players we do want to move on like Barkley.

{Ed002's Note - Jorginho (DM/CM) Expect him to stay - there is no declared interest at this time and Chelsea would want a decent return on the player - they have learned a lot from loans with options through the like of Bakayoko. Napoli has shown no interest and about fourth on Milan's list, and Inter have two serios options before they will be looking at the also rans.}

Thanks Ed002.

Forgive me if already mentioned but what’s the situation with Bakyoko?

{Ed002's Note - He is on loan and Chelsea will look to sell him in the summer.}

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Apr 2021 21:51:13
Ok, I wasn’t sure if finally there’s was an
Obligation with Napoli or other interest.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Apr 2021 22:44:45
Ed002 we should look to do loans with obligations then and hearing sarri linked with roma alot, if that happens then surely he would want roma to move for jorginho.

{Ed002's Note - It really doesn’t work like that.}

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Apr 2021 23:55:32
We need dm though, if jorginho did stay then would that mean we would not go for a dm? And what would happen with gilmour as he is barely getting minutes now?

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Apr 2021 10:28:05
Perhaps, Chelsea can do something with Bakayoko to get Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco. I am just thinking aloud 😜.

Hello Ed and fellow posters, got to say TT has done an amazing job the game against WBA was just a blip some days teams turn up and are just better on the day and I think WBA would of beaten anyone the way they played so credit to them.

Hopefully we have a good display tonight I'd take an away goal and a draw though I'm hoping for a win.

Ed I was curious I've been reading the posts lately and it would seem the main focus in the summer is going to be on a cab and a st do the club deem that sarr guy we brought has not ready for first team yet and do you no who Chelsea are looking to upfront besides the obvious haaland and lukaku neither of which I can see happening.

In terms of outs would you say it's reasonable to expect the following to leave has things stand.

Emerson
Abraham
Giroud
Silva
Rudiguer

I suspect Jorginho too but I guess it depends on who we bring back from the loans or the under 23 set up don't think spending big on rice is what we need.

Last question are the club looking to offload Werner I've seen it reported a few times I'm hoping it isn't true guys only been with us a year he's a good player just needs time I think.

Anyway hope your safe and all other Ed's and posters KTBFFH all the best come on the Chelsea.

{Ed002's Note - (a) You can likely watch Sarr later and make up your mind - I don't know if he will start but he is in the squad. (b) I have explained the situation with Haaland and unless something very significant were to happen to resolve a huge issue there will be no chance of Lukaku returning. As I have already explained Chelsea have not finalised what they intend to do in the summer but consideration has also to be given to those on loan and coming through and how they progress. (c) No, it is not reasonable to expect that all of those players will leave - but certainly some will. (d) Chelsea has made no efforts to "offload" Timo Werner and my expectation is he that will start tonight.}

Ed002 any truth we are interested in gravenberch.

{Ed002's Note - Is this Twitter again?}

06 Apr 2021 18:07:47
Ed with tammy not agreeing to his contract offer yet
Is there any clubs declaring an interest in him yet
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Two clubs have spoken with Chelsea directly to say that should he be available they would like the opportunity to discuss the player. If Chelsea were to make him available I suspect a number of other sides would also be interested.}

Interesting who are the 2 clubs eds if I may ask.

{Ed002's Note - I don’t want to get in to anything specific this year. Some of the regulars on the site spent their weekend spewing their hate on the club, the players and the coach after one loss in 15 games or so, so some time off is due.}

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Apr 2021 18:59:35
Saw that I understand no worries and thanks for replies
Enjoy your margaritas.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Apr 2021 20:00:38
Very disappointing I agree Ed002 with a few turning up specifically to criticise a very rare set back under TT and nothing else.

{Ed002's Note - Yes it is a disgrace.}

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Apr 2021 07:25:54
Ed002, would Chelsea be interested in Jude Bellingham as a replacement for any midfielder heading out this summer. Or as an alternative to Rice.

On a side note . Can't wait to see us bounce back tonight against Porto . Come on you blues

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Jude Bellingham is one of many, many players the club are not looking to sign this summer.}

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Apr 2021 20:09:39
At is this rate it almost feels like there are few players left to ask about. :)

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Apr 2021 14:55:07
Ed002 any truth we are interested in juels kounde thanks.

{Ed002's Note - He is one of three CBs the coach listed for Chelsea that he is interested in but Kounde is very small for the PL, far too expensive and others are preferred.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

06 Apr 2021 16:38:04
Yeah i thought height wouod be an issue, i am guessing sule is one of the others and konate, which cb will we look to go for?

{Ed002's Note - No decision has been made.}

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Apr 2021 22:10:03
Jules Kounde would unequivocally be my first choice if we were to sign a CB. He reminds me so much of Thiago Silva it isn’t funny. They both are undersized but play bigger than their measurements. They’re both incredibly mobile, which is far more important to me than size with how football is being played at the moment. He’s exceptional from a defensive awareness and technique standpoint which is so rare nowadays as I feel like most young defenders are simply excellent physical specimens but are technically very underwhelming. He easily would be my pick of the litter.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Apr 2021 16:14:37
Thank you Ed002; at least I know that Chelsea is in for a central defender.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand.}
