Edoo2 any truth that we are interested in david alaba thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Have you been playing on Twitter again?}

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Mar 2020 22:31:24
Newspaper reports, guessing that's a no then thanks.

24 Mar 2020 00:18:55
Ed with everything up in the sir do you think the transfer window could change dates and times
With seasons basically postponed or over do you think they might bring it forward.

{Ed002's Note - The intention remains that the season will be completed if possible. As such if it runs through June you would then see a shorter transfer window. They will certainly not be bringing it forward.}

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Mar 2020 08:24:33
OK thanks for reply stay safe mate were ever you are.

Ed002, are Chelsea looking at Declan Rice to replace Jorginho?

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea have not made any approach to West Ham about Rice (who is of course an ex Chelsea Academy player).

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2020 16:53:06
I hope not after his comments about his time at Chelsea. Looks average in a terrible West Ham midfield. If we wanted to take a punt on a defensive midfielder, I'd rather we just went for Doucoure if Watford go down.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has no intentions about "taking a punt" on Decoure.}

23 Mar 2020 17:50:58
I don't really rate him.

23 Mar 2020 18:38:21
I thought Rice had a good game against us at aThe Bridge but I don’t enough about to be a judge.

23 Mar 2020 20:47:29
Let’s be honest Sky sports have nothing to post because of the Coronavirus so they’re just making stuff up now.

23 Mar 2020 23:57:30
I wonder if the people who don't rate Rice felt the same about Jordan Henderson a few years ago?

24 Mar 2020 17:39:24
Hi Turvey, my rating of Declan Rice wouldn't add or subtract from him. please don't be offended by my comment about Declan Rice (if you are), all I am saying is that, he isn't the player I would like to replace any of our defensive midfielder (s) with (both the ones at the club and the ones on loan) .

25 Mar 2020 12:16:22
I like Rice as a CB.

23 Mar 2020 08:56:09
Ed002, can I ask if Chelsea have an interest in Richarlison please?

We were linked with him before he went to both Warford and Everton. He has also been in a couple of reports in the English press listing striking targets for Chelsea which, if I'm honest, read like names being pulled out of a hat.

Hope you, the other Ed's and posters are ok at this strange time.

{Ed002's Note - There is no interest from Chelsea in Richarlison. And we hope you are all well.}

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2020 10:28:04
Thank goodness, for every one good game he is anonymous for five. Known for disgraceful play acting too. Steer clear.

21 Mar 2020 17:37:11
Good evening Ed002; please is Chelsea interested in Luka Jovic? Thankyou.

{Ed002's Note - Others are but Chelsea has no declared interest.}

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2020 19:30:15
I certainly hope we consider him.

For me he's the class act of the CF available.

22 Mar 2020 08:18:35
I loved Jovic at Frankfurt but I don’t like signing players in poor form. A loan with option to buy could be a good idea.

Raul Jimenez would be my choice the mans as complete as they come and experienced which we need around a young crop. No Werner or Dembele for me.

22 Mar 2020 13:27:08
Jovic needs a strike partner for him to be affective. Wouldn't suit Chelseas one up top system.

22 Mar 2020 16:33:56
Feed him Reece's and Ziyech's crosses and he'd score goal guaranteed. He's one of the most lethal finishers I've seen.

23 Mar 2020 17:42:12
Dihanio and Jackson; the both of you have made very good points.

21 Mar 2020 16:38:40
Ed002- a couple of names that keep popping up.
Moussa Dembele- seems to be the new no. 1 striker target. Do you think we can get a deal done early, considering interest from elsewhere?
Alex Telles- Portuguese media seem convinced we are about to sign him. Does this have any truth, or just speculation?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained about both previously. Dembele is a player Chelsea has considered amongst others. Telles remains of interest if a LB is needed.}

Would perhaps be good to keep this in one thread.

I also have a question, but not necessarily transfer related. It's about Ethan Ampadu. Would surprise me if you know this, Ed002, but no harm in asking I suppose.
Do you know how the club view his season on loan at Leipzig? Everyone knew it was a challenging loan destination from the start, but working with top class players and under one of the best up and coming coaches in football is also beneficial for a young guy like Ampadu. Sadly he hasn't gotten much time on the pitch for them, which I suppose is understandable as Leipzig have got some top players, especially at CB with Upamecano there.
Basically what I'm asking here is, do you know whether Chelsea are disappointed with how his season went, and would thus look to send him back on loan next season? Finally getting him some consistent time on the pitch wouldn't be a bad thing of course, but the few occasions he does get to start I've always gotten the impression that he's simply ready to feature for Chelsea as well.

Massive thanks also for answering questions on specific targets too. I'm sure we'll see many of the popularly mentioned targets pop up on here, e. g. Onana, Sancho, Dembele.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody will be disappointed - but they would have preferred more game time.}

21 Mar 2020 18:08:26
Well I'm already happy that they wouldn't be disappointed. That'd be bad.

Cheers, Ed. Hoping to see both Ampadu and Gallagher back at Chelsea next season.

{Ed002's Note - We'll see.}

21 Mar 2020 18:40:43
Of course we do have quite a few mids already in the first team squad. Jorgi, Kante, Barkley, Mount, Kovacic, Ruben and now Gilmour who's shown he definitely belongs there.

We'll see indeed.

21 Mar 2020 19:02:05
Thanks Ed002. One other question I had- you mentioned Kenedy might be purchased by Getafe and sold on potentially. Does this still seem likely?

{Ed002's Note - That is the plan.}

21 Mar 2020 16:28:20
Ed002 any update on sancho and our interest? Update on what we are going to do with boga? And any truth in reports that lampard and the club want soumare thanks.

{Ed002's Note - (a) There has been a further discussion with his “agent” but there remains a show stopping issue. (b) I have no idea what you are talking about. (c) Chelsea have not spoken with Lille about Soumare.}

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2020 18:26:17
Can i ask what midfielders we are looking at thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to start providing lists of players as it ends up causing grief.}

23 Mar 2020 09:49:39
Good day Ed002; could the show stopping issue (as regards Sancho's transfer) be very high agent fees?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

21 Mar 2020 15:58:01
Hi ed02

Are there any teams planning to go for Kante? Do you expect him to leave Chelsea?

{Ed002's Note - PSG have enquired and there is a view that Real Madrid will do but the club are expecting him to be happy to stay.}

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2020 17:42:53
I love Kante, but would think about an offer of money + Valverde.
