Hi Ed, a question on Anjorin. Recent reports have come out saying Lokomotiv Moscow are trying to make a deal for him, and a permanent one at that.

Have any loan offers from other clubs come in for him in the past few weeks? He's at a point where he needs to play matches (he probably already was at that point last summer) as he's way too good for the U23/ Development league. So I'd be very much in favor of getting him a good loan, but selling him would be painful as he's one of the best talents to have come out of Cobham I believe.

Thank you in any case.

Jackson

{Ed002's Note - Tino Anjorin (AM/) Could potentially be sent on loan - Lokomotiv Moscow and Augsburg have both spoken with Chelsea. Chelsea would like to keep him on the books.}


1.) 25 Aug 2021 09:27:18
Okay, good to hear they'd prefer to keep him on the books and not sell.

Thank you, Ed! Have a good day :)

Hi Ed002, no worries if you don't want to touch this subject. But I was wondering whether any club has declared an interest in taking Hudson-Odoi on loan this summer?

He's locked into a long term contract, and I would hope he still sees his future at Chelsea and if so that Chelsea wouldn't sell him just yet. But on the other hand I would understand it if he'd be open to a loan move to get consistent game time.

So was wondering whether any club has approached Chelsea about taking him on loan for a season.

Thanks in any case, and stay safe all!

Jackson

{Ed002's Note - There is no decision about CHO but he has to take note of what the coaching staff have been telling him to work hard in training and show he deserves chances in the first team. Chelsea re not talking to other clubs about a loan at this time - or perhaps of last Thursday.}


1.) 22 Sep 2020 16:22:33
Thank you for the reply, Ed. Hopefully the kid gets his head down and just focuses on working hard and being a professional.

Losing him would hurt, a lot.

Good news, Chelsea fans! It appears the club have been able to recruit a very highly rated Dutch striker from Stoke, Mohammed Sankoh.

Born in 2003, there are reports that he joins Chelsea this summer. I know little else about him, but it appears he's held in high regard.

Jackson

1.) 01 Aug 2020 18:34:22
He's a baby.


2.) 01 Aug 2020 20:45:37
Seeing as he's born in 2003 he's either 16 turning 17 or 17 already. So hardly a baby. Really don't understand that comment. If you mean he's one for the youth team, then obviously yes. But he's highly rated and joining Chelsea, so still good news.


3.) 01 Aug 2020 21:48:17
Jackson - Every report I’ve read rates him very highly. I share your enthusiasm on this one. Another coup for our youth recruitment if true!


4.) 01 Aug 2020 22:02:57
Sounds like a very good bit of business.

Thanks for the information Jackson.


5.) 01 Aug 2020 22:49:48
You're very welcome, Tom. Happy to be able to bring some news for once :-)


6.) 02 Aug 2020 11:36:21
I think he is on the list of top young players that Ed002 gave on the European page.


7.) 02 Aug 2020 12:06:37
Hi Jackson - yes, it's good that we're attracting the best-rated kids - but the point that I was making is that a great player at 16 doesn't translate to a great player at 20 (see recently: Islam Feruz / Lucas Piazon / Alex Kiwomya - all of whom were going to be the next 'superstar') .


8.) 02 Aug 2020 13:33:00
I get that, though I doubt you'll find many people that genuinely thought Kiwomya would be a great player. He was more of a sprinter than a footballer.


 

 

14 Dec 2019 08:49:22
Ed, would like your opinion on this if you have the time.

Lots of rumors again crediting Chelsea with serious interest in Zaha, potentially even for a January move. Prices being quoted are in the ballpark of 70 to even 80 million.
Now to me, Zaha is a good player for a counter attacking side, but nowhere near worth an amount over ca. 40 million. I don't get it.

So my question. What do you think Chelsea see in Zaha that would translate to a higher level, where not every attacking move would flow through him like at Palace.
Do you believe he could be a good player for a team with top 4 aspirations?

Thanks.

Jackson

{Ed002's Note - It is a player Lampard wants - others are against it.}


1.) 14 Dec 2019 10:55:14
Wow interesting, i thought he was a club target and lampard didn't really want him

ed a lot of rumors from different sources now saying chelsea are interested in sancho, is there any truth or interest thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There is interest but the price is putting them off.}


2.) 14 Dec 2019 11:03:25
Oh that's exciting, he's the type of player we should be targeting imo, does lampard want sancho? And is there an chance of a january move for him thanks

Also any chance of other names we are looking st for wing positions if you can, appreciate it alot.


3.) 14 Dec 2019 11:06:36
Oh I had hoped we had learned a lesson ) :


4.) 14 Dec 2019 12:29:04
Lampard wants to improve the team - zaha is better than Pedro and Willian, my worry is it’s 70-80 million of our budget when there’s other younger players, 50-60m would be about right but to palace his worth a lot more and that’s my problem with a move for zaha.


5.) 14 Dec 2019 12:29:36
So we are interested in Zaha BUT the Sancho price is too much? But it is not much more than the Zaha price for a player who is much younger and much more promising.

{Ed002's Note - It is a lot more.}


6.) 14 Dec 2019 12:41:01
Heard reports they want €140m Its worth paying that much though as he's 19 and world class potential so could have him for many years aswell and sort that position out tor years.


7.) 14 Dec 2019 13:44:42
I can understand the club finding Sancho's probable price as too much. Probably over 120 or even 150 million would be needed, and he's already shown some signs of diva behavior turning up late for meetings and practice etc. Not sure I'd like him for the prices being quoted.

It's going to be a bidding war, and I'd rather not go to war financially with United. They can blow everyone out of the water anyway.

That said, I hope the club decide to only go for Zaha if the price is reasonable. It'd be good if they could get Frank the targets he likes, but it has to be reasonable. And Zaha at the prices talked about is madness. There should be much better value for money in the market than that.

Chukwueze for example, whom I've read might be available at around 65 million or something (just a ballpark) . Another interesting option would be Salzburg's Hwang Hee Chan. Looks an excellent player, and would be an interesting one to replace Pedro.
Or if Juve are willing to sell him, Bernardeschi. Another excellent player whom a lot of people have seemingly forgotten about a bit.


8.) 14 Dec 2019 13:45:10
Also, thanks a lot for that reply, Ed :) Interesting to read it's very much Lampard who is interested in him.


9.) 14 Dec 2019 19:53:37
some of you are saying spend 100+ million on a 19 year old, it's worth it. the problem is he 19! and no experience in the premier league. yeah he's been good but he is no better than CHO imo. Zaha may not be world class but he is a very good player with plenty of experience and still young. and as someone said he is an upgrade on pedro. he can play down the middle also.


 

 

29 Nov 2019 21:23:32
Reports coming out of Italy that a deal with Inter for Giroud is close to being completed, for a January move.

Will be interesting to see whether the club would also sell him midway through the season if they can't bring in any replacement.
Now I know he's played almost no minutes, so a replacement wouldn't be necessary. However, it would be risky as an injury to either Michy or Tammy would leave us with just 1 striker option.

Jackson

1.) 02 Dec 2019 14:04:11
Giroud wants/ needs playing time IF he is going to make the France squad for 2020 Euro's. Judging by his sluggish display against West Spam we are not going to miss him too much. But we really do need a replacement and if we can't sign players is there anybody else currently in our yoof system?

Hi Ed002, back with the question now the transfer window has closed for Chelsea.

Would you be willing to share an explanation over the Wonderdogsparky, Rastafarian milk (or some such) tweets, related to Chelsea?

Also, many thanks for the work on the sites, especially over the summer window. A lot of us truly appreciate what you and your fellow Eds do for us!

Jackson

{Ed002's Note - You would have to ask him.}


1.) 01 Sep 2021 10:32:30
Crap, I don't have a twitter account. Anybody willing to help?


2.) 01 Sep 2021 12:50:09
What needs to be done, Jackson?


3.) 01 Sep 2021 21:10:41
Hi Roman. A while ago, in beginning of August, a twitter account under the name of WonderDogSparky tweeted something cryptic about having news about a midfielder, and the news would make Chelsea fans happy.

Something about Rastafarian milk in French or some such too, and that the club colours are red and white. At the time I thought it was related to Tchouameni, but I'm not sure at all and am curious to know.

So if it's not too much effort and/ or trouble, I'd ask someone with a twitter account to ask the question to that account itself: WonderDogSparky. I myself have no account on Twitter, otherwise I'd do it myself. But I try not to engage myself on the big social media platforms.


 

 

30 Aug 2021 09:05:42
So it seems like Kounde's off the table. Reports coming out that Sevilla have suddenly increased their asking price after Zouma's deal to West Ham was concluded.

If true, it's a shame Sevilla decided to handle it this way. But I can't see Chelsea caving to their increased demands.

Think if another transfer happens this summer it will be Saul. But there's a good chance it'll be just Lukaku brought in.

Jackson

1.) 30 Aug 2021 09:13:30
Yes it's a shame that Sevilla handed it like this, if the reports are true.
I'm wondering if Sarr or Ampadu - or maybe both - will now stay with us?
But actually I'd still be very satisfied if we only get Lukaku. Of course Koundé and Saúl are both interesting players, same goes for some of the others we've been linked to, like Tchouameni. We're quite lucky, however, that our squad is already really, really good - we don't have to buy just for the sake of it, and can allow ourselves to be picky. And if we don't spend more money now, I guess it just means that we can spend the money later on!


2.) 30 Aug 2021 09:14:57
I’m sure our will only pay the amount we value him at.

It will be a shame because in my opinion the lad is a good player but if it doesn’t happen then I’m sure Chalaboa will do a fantastic job when called upon.


3.) 30 Aug 2021 09:39:01
No doubt Kounde would have been a great addition, but its certainly not the end of the world if he doesn't arrive. And I can't see us just bending over to Sevilla's demands.

We already have Christensen, Silva, Rudiger, Azpi, Chalobah and even Reece james capable of filling the CB spots.

My main concern is still the midfield, as I mentioned earlier.

But if no more signings arrive, we can't complain as we've addressed our main weakness by bringing in a world class striker in Lukaku.


4.) 30 Aug 2021 10:38:11
I think that Chelsea should try to find a middle ground on the extra fee (£13m) that was added by Sevilla rather than call off the deal completely; Jules Kounde is a very good player that is not worth missing out on. I read that Bordeaux has a percentage of Kounde’s transfer fee and Sevilla is looking at buying a replacement too- hence the need why Chelsea should see things a bit from Sevilla’s angle by not calling off the deal and try to find a middle ground on the additional sum. All negotiation strategies: I think Chelsea will buy Kounde.


5.) 30 Aug 2021 10:41:56
Yes Bobby you’re right, the main concern is the midfield, it will strain us if we go into the season without adding another central midfielder, unless Chelsea has decided to go with Ampadu and Loftus Cheek as options.


6.) 30 Aug 2021 10:41:56

7.) 30 Aug 2021 11:17:03
If the reports are true and we had a verbal agreement with Sevilla, then I don’t think we should look for middle ground or any compromise. Having said that I generally don’t believe the vast majority of press reports.

Ha getting any midfielder through the door now seem unlikely. I’m happy to wait and you never know we may well end up with Rice next season.

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid it is not simply the money.}


8.) 30 Aug 2021 11:28:42
Interesting Ed. I won’t ask the obvious. Thanks for the
clarification.


 

 

27 Aug 2021 13:08:39
Hi there, Ed. I remember a while ago Wonderdogsparky posted a tweet about a player from a club with colors red and white, saying it would make Chelsea fans happy. Also something about rastafarian milk?

Would you happen to know by any chance whom it was about? I figured it referenced Tchouameni, but now starting to wonder whether it already referred to Saul back then.

Jackson

{Ed002's Note - Another "difficult" situation.}


1.) 27 Aug 2021 13:59:43
Gotcha. Could I ask, if (and that's certainly an "if", not a "when") it gets resolved one way or another, would you be willing to tell us what it was about? I'm genuinely curious.

No problem if not of course.

{Ed002's Note - Sure.}


2.) 27 Aug 2021 14:53:30
Thank you!


 

 

15 Aug 2020 11:42:01
Ed002, I've seen you say that Stevanovic, whom United have apparently signed, is a super talent and will be a really good player in the future. The fee is also mentioned to be around 12 million, which isn't much considering the current market where anybody who can kick a ball with both feet commands 20 million it seems like.

Now I'm wondering, why would Chelsea not be interested in getting him and loaning him back to Partizan? I realize there are quite a few winger options already present at the club (Pulisic, Callum, Ziyech and maybe Werner at times), but United also already have Rashford, Greenwood, James, Mata and are looking to sign Sancho/ Dembele/ Chiesa (basically another winger) . So it's a comparable situation.

Seeing as he's apparently immensely talented and doesn't seem to be really expensive, why would Chelsea not want him?
Apologies if this is a dumb question, but I'm kinda disappointed they get a huge winger talent while we don't. I also don't know of many highly thought of wingers in our academy system.

Jackson

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea are not going to buy every talented youngster.}


1.) 15 Aug 2020 14:48:42
I understand you can't buy all of them. But I just think United's situation is comparable with regards to their attack, and yet they are buying him.

They shouldn't buy every talented kid, that I agree with. But from your comments I get the feeling he's not just talented, but one of the most talented youngsters in football right now. If one of the biggest talents in the world is available for that low of a fee, I think exceptions should be made.

I saw your comment on the European pages, regarding Ihattaren and Stevanovic. Ihattaren is another one I think Chelsea should make an exception for. There's no immediate need for him I think in the squad. But he's so super talented, if possible you should get him anyway and sell another squad player then to make space.


2.) 15 Aug 2020 20:11:12
12 mil is 12 mil then you have agents fees and wages to take into account we don’t need any more forwards anyhow Manchester United can’t be as secure financially as us they seem to make repeated mistakes who is is going to replace there Rashford martial greenwood all young kids not going to get a game anytime soon.


 

 

01 Aug 2020 20:50:58
Well that was disappointing. Kante not fit to start, Azpi pulling up injured, Pulisic injured early in 2nd half, Willian out. On top of that we get an atrocious ref (I refuse to believe the game would be fixed, so let's just assume Taylor is a piss poor ref as he's the same guy that called a foul on Alonso after he got clattered by Gazzaniga in our PL match against Spurs before VAR intervened) . It was always going to be hard to win like that.

Still gutted. I don't think we brought enough to win it today, just a shame the manner in which we had to lose. If Pulisic doesn't pull his hamstring when in on goal, it might well be a goal and our star winger still playing. Instead it's our star winger injured and no goal. Fine margins, and they decide the outcome of matches.

Congrats to Arsenal I suppose, though I don't think they were particularly brilliant themselves. If it's full strength Chelsea vs Arsenal with a decent ref then I think we come out the winners. Alas, hopefully next season.

Jackson

1.) 01 Aug 2020 20:59:23
We can still win the Champions League Jackson! Hahaha!

I do think we have got a lot to look forward to next season.

The players we have signed and the ones we will sign can only make us a stronger team.

I would, like a lot of other posters, get the club to sign someone who can coach our defensive unit.


2.) 01 Aug 2020 21:42:41
Yes much to look forward to though I fear it will not be ECL trophy this season! On ref issue am also not usually into conspiracy theories though would certainly make an exception for the Norwegian ref who turned down those three clear pen shouts when we were knocked out by Barcelona and Didier rightly went berserk at end. But do wonder why the FA made Taylor the first ref to be given a second FA Cup final and especially when his first one was AFC beating us (and Moses sent off) in 2017. Is he currently the top rated or what explains the choice?


3.) 01 Aug 2020 21:57:43
I may well be making this up but I think the head of the referees who’s name I can’t remember is regarded as pretty awful.

Maybe the problem of our refereeing standards are down to him?

Or maybe I’m just being a bad loser!


4.) 01 Aug 2020 22:27:23
Well, there's starting to be a theme with Taylor refereeing Chelsea matches. He missed Son's stamp on Rudiger, the Gazzaniga karate kick on Alonso, Lo Celso's stamp on Azpi, Maguire's kick in Michy's crotch, booked Willian for diving after Bruno Fernandes fouled him in our home match against United, and he also missed a blatant handball by Alexis Sanchez in our FA Cup final against Arsenal 2 or 3 years ago, a handball through which Alexis was able to score.

A huge, match altering mistake of a decision doesn't seem to be far away whenever he's the ref for a high profile Chelsea match.


5.) 01 Aug 2020 22:54:33
Interesting details Jackson, thanks for them, and hadn't realised Taylor the ref for all of these.

For me it's not about stats, goals and assists. But I don't think he's at the level required for Chelsea anymore. He used to be, but he's fallen off.

We should steer clear, even for a loan.
