As buying and selling of players continue in the transfer market, Chelsea having made the highest number of recruitments so far, are looking forward to putting some finishing touches to their summer businesses.
Chelsea just received a further boost on Kai Havertz’s deal yesterday after Bayer Leverkusen’s head coach, Peter Bosz, revealed that the 21-year-old will no longer train with the team.
This revelation made many Chelsea fans happy as they saw the revelation as a confirmation that Havertz’s departure to Chelsea had now become closer than ever.
Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen are believed to have agreed on a €100m deal for the Germany international, with €80m coming upfront and €20m as add-ons.
Talking about another Chelsea player. Let’s talk about Chelsea’s midfielder, Ngolo Kante.
Amid reports that Inter Milan’s coach, Antonio Conte, wants a reunion with a player he signed back then when he was managing Chelsea, the London club have now set Ngolo Kante’s selling price at £80m.
What this latest development now means is that, if Chelsea’s request is met by Inter Milan or any other interested Club, then the French man who joined the Blues back in 2016 will be allowed an exit.
Moreover, considering Lampard’s open interest in West Ham’s £80m rated Declan Rice, Lampard might be willing to let Kante go to make space for the England international.
In another story, after Chelsea seem to have solved their defensive problem (at least a bit) with the signings of Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva, what the club seems to be focusing on now is the goalkeeping role. Reports say, Frank Lampard is not convinced by Kepa Arrizabalaga (whom Chelsea made the world most expensive goalkeeper in a £72m deal back in 2018) and as a result, wants a replacement for the Spaniard as soon as possible.
After being linked to AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma last week as the primary target, latest reports now say Chelsea are planning a swoop for French side Rennes’ goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy.
Though it is believed that Chelsea are not going to make a new bid after their initial £14m bid was declined, until Kai Havertz’s deal is officially confirmed. Rennes on the other hand are believed to not be willing to sell the 28-year-old until they find a suitable replacement.
