According to Goal. com's Robin Bairner, Chelsea have made a bid for Metz striker Habib Diallo. Could he be the competition for Tammy that we need?


{Ed002's Note - Habib Diallo (S) has an agent who has decided it is his time to step up after his time at Metz and the hype has been serious. Certainly there is interest from Fenerbahce and Watford (although the coach has since moved on) although the coach has insisted that he will not be sold in January whilst Metz are fighting relegation. Norwich, Toulouse and Newcastle have all scouted the player but I am not aware of any declaration of interest being made at this time. The lady from Toulouse says he would be perhaps a good championship-level player in England.}

Thanks for the reply Ed! Incredibly thorough and detailed response as always!

Chelsea have been linked with Roma left back Emerson Palmieri, which would fill a position where we need reinforcement.

A quick search shows that we were interested last year, but Ed002 said there could be problems getting a work permit - any idea if that would still be a problem?


1.) 17 Jan 2018 10:54:26
I believe it would likely still be an issue as he hasn’t played an internationals since then. However a large transfer fee could bypass it I believe?

2.) 17 Jan 2018 11:34:13
I read he hasn’t played a game this season due to bad knee injury so seems legit.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 13:31:27
Actually he has Italian citizenship now so it shouldn’t be an issue.

Reading reports from Spain (Marca, El Diario) that Alonso will move to Atletico Madrid this summer!

If he goes, who should replace him - both in a banned or non-banned situation?

Also, any of the eds able to substantiate the rumour?


1.) 30 May 2019 19:45:00
Banned has to be Jay da Silva coming back from loan. I would absolutely love to add Alex Telles to this squad in order to provide width down the left and he would be my choice in a non-banned scenario.

2.) 30 May 2019 20:05:23
If we don't appeal then i'd still sell him and have Jay Dasilva as backup to Emerson. That's if Jay would be willing to be a backup. If we appeal and can buy then i'd go and get Telles, he's pretty much turned into the new Hulk with us being linked to him every window. He'd be an excellent signing though, has everything you look for in a modern day full back.

3.) 30 May 2019 20:45:10
Chilwell would be my first choice if the ban remains. If not then Aina first then Da Silva. Aina has proved to be a very versatile full back for Torino but I’ve heard he’s signing for them. Think Chilwell is quality and the more homegrown we have the better. If not him then Telles.

Even if the ban remains and we can offload the likes of Zappacosta, Alonso, Drinkwater, Morata and Bakayoko we’ve still improved the squad.

No worries if Marcos Alonso has agreed a deal to join Athletico Madrid- as long as Athletico pay £70m for him.

5.) 30 May 2019 23:33:11
I’d take 7 million personally. But I think £20 million would be a fair fee.

6.) 31 May 2019 08:58:10
20 mil for a goal scoring LB . no way has to be higher . but id like to stay away from discussing money.

he has done well for us . id like for him to stay and compete with emerson if the ban stays. i think if we had a good striker he would do even better in the attacking phase . defensivly he can do much better.

7.) 31 May 2019 09:19:36
I think this Alonso's sudden desire to join Athletico Madrid feels like tantrum that he's throwing against Sarri and the club; but I honestly think that it won't help him cos it's coming at the very wrong time.



28 Sep 2017 06:02:23
Now that we're well into the new season, looking at the squad we're a bit short on depth at left-back and striker.
Alonso has been great, but can't play every game, and if one of our strikers gets injured we'd be struggling to have game changers on the bench.
Since we missed out on Llorente and Sandro in the summer, any idea of new targets in these positions - maybe even for a January signing?


1.) 28 Sep 2017 08:38:22
give it a rest.
we have had a gd start to the season and its know where near jan yet. relax.

2.) 28 Sep 2017 09:24:16
OMG. Take a look at the results and then take a chill pill.

3.) 28 Sep 2017 10:18:23
Hilarious post haha.

Fez, take a look at Batshuyi's goal to minutes ratio!

5.) 28 Sep 2017 23:18:26
Jesus Christ, calm down. Anyway llorente was always a pathetic option.

6.) 29 Sep 2017 23:24:08
dont think we need new targets were going queite ok llorente is a donkey batshuayi will prove hopefully why llorente going to spurs was right move for us.

I reckon that there will be an article saying 'sources' link us to these 2 players within a couple of days!

Sad to hear that about Tammy, but we seem to have done pretty well in the 2nd half of the season without him.

If Giroud and Tammy both leave then we'll definitely be needing a new face up front.

I wonder if we will try to use Baba Rahman when he comes back from injury as cover on the left side, or if we will loan him out (maybe Schalke are still interested) to build match fitness.

I think Ziyech won't start twice in quick succession, we're easing him in, so I think we'll see him drop to the bench.
One solution would see Abraham come in and Werner move to the left wing.
While that seems to be the best way to get our best attackers on the pitch, playing Werner on the left and Pulisic on the right does make our attack a bit narrow, so maybe we'll see Hudson-Odoi instead.

I was also interested in Ed's reply about Partey - it seems that Arsenal really screwed Atletico over. I wonder what the consequences of doing business in bad faith will be - Ed mentioned that Liverpool also have a tarnished reputation in this regard whereas I think Chelsea tend to conduct business in a more respectful manner (obvious historical issues about recruiting youth players notwithstanding) . Let's hope it leads to us being able to beat these clubs to more of our targets like we managed to with Werner!
