Saturday Transfer Update: Chelsea

Saturday Transfer Update: Chelsea

 Timo Werner makes Chelsea decision

The German was linked to Real Madrid over recent weeks with Tuchel hoping to strengthen his attack ahead of next season.

However, such a move has been refuted by Werner’s agent, who insists his client is ‘comfortable’ in West London.

It was reported that Thomas Tuchel’s men could potentially put together a swap deal in an effort to bring Varane to Stamford Bridge.

Real Madrid decide Raphael Varane transfer amid Chelsea interest

Chelsea have been linked with a move for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane throughout the summer.

The French centre-back is out of contract at the Santiago Bernabeu next season which could tempt Los Blancos into selling.

It was reported that Thomas Tuchel’s men could potentially put together a swap deal in an effort to bring Varane to Stamford Bridge.

However, reports suggest that Real are not interested in swaps and instead want just cash.

But Varane now wants a change in the shape of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils.

Rangers are plotting a sensational reunion with Billy Gilmour. 

In a recent report, the Daily Record (as cited by Glasgow Live) has claimed that Rangers are plotting a sensational reunion with Billy Gilmour. The Chelsea youngster has been impressive for both club and country and is now gearing up for more first-team minutes, having grabbed the attention already.

The 20-year-old midfield prodigy left Ibrox four years ago to join the Blues’ esteemed academy ranks and made his first-team debut under Frank Lampard a couple of years later. His performance against Liverpool in a FA Cup fixture received massive plaudits last year and the Scotsman eventually gained Thomas Tuchel’s trust who replaced Lampard midway through the previous term.

While Norwich City are closing in on securing his services on a season-long loan, Rangers are set to make a last-ditch attempt to bring Billy Gilmour back in familiar surroundings. The Canaries have Premier Lague football to offer week in week out, but the Bears’ opportunity to make it through to the main round of the prestigious Champions League might make the race more intriguing. The profile of European football would help him grow his game under Steven Gerrard.

Financial problems could put an end to Napoli’s pursuit of Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri.

I Partenopei have been pursuing the Italian ever since the summer began but they are still nowhere near agreeing on a deal with the European champions.

La Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting that in order for Chelsea to allow the player to go out on loan this summer, he must first sign a new deal as his current one runs out in 2022. This applies even if the loan includes an obligation to buy.

The other problem that is facing Luciano Spalletti’s side is that Emerson Palmieri currently earns €4.6 million a season at the West London club, which is a salary that Napoli cannot match.

This means any loan move would likely require Chelsea to pay a percentage of the Italian international’s wages.

Chelsea target set to sign new contract to remain with German giants

The perennial German champions’ addition of Dayot Upamecano from RB Leipzig seemed to have made Sule surplus to requirements – at least if you believed the rumours.

The reality is turning out quite differently, however. Goal.com are reporting information from Bild that the former Hoffenheim defender is going to sign a new contract, rather than leaving.

In reality, we didn’t see this move as a real prospect in any case, and it seems likely his agent was leaking information just to pressure Bayern into a better contract offer.

However, Chelsea are still thought to be keeping their pursuit of the player alive, with offers including players going the other way still their strategy to persuade Inter to deal with them over the Parisians.

The Blues have offered both Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri as part of a deal, with the valuation of those players intended to bring the total value of a deal to an amount that the Nerazzurri are happy with.

It remains to be seen whether Chelsea’s approach will have any success, but for now they could still beat PSG to Hakimi’s signature despite clear signs that the French club intend to close the deal.
