Chelsea they want to streamline their squad over the summer, despite winning UEFA’s Champions League last season. The Blues also reached the FA Cup final, but finished second to Leicester City’s moody team. Thomas Tuchel has inspired fourth place in the Premier League and will aim for first place in the upcoming campaign.
Chelsea are aiming for a new number nine this summer, while they also want to strengthen their line before the start of the new season. The Blues also want a new goalkeeper before the end of August.
In that sense, let’s look at the main news about the transfer of Chelsea from July 27, 2021.
Erling Haaland breaks the silence due to the proposed transfer to Chelsea
Erling Haaland responded to his rumor that turned to Chelsea. The Norwegian is linked to a hit at Stamford Bridge this summer, and the Blues make Borussia Dortmund the main target before the key season. Thomas Tuchel is looking for a new number nine, with current players available who have failed to make a trail. The German is eager to attack his former club for Holland, but the Norwegian is expected to cost a fortune.
However, the price of Haland did not deter Chelsea, which is reportedly preparing an offer of 175 million euros for the player. And the Norwegian is not at all satisfied with the financial means. According to Caught offside via ESPN, the Borussia Dortmund star was asked about the proposed move to Stamford Bridge, and he responded by pointing out that the included transfer fee was too high.
“I hope these are just rumors, because 175 million euros would be a lot for one person,” Haland said.
Norway’s £ 68m release clause could take effect next summer, but Chelsea are eager to beat the competition and secure their signature this year.
The Blues are starting negotiations for the La Liga defender
Chelsea have begun negotiations with Sevilla for services Jules Kounde, according to a renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano. The Blues plan to bring in a new central defender this summer, and Thomas Tuchel has recognized the Frenchman as his favorite choice. The Premier League giants have already agreed on personal terms with Kounde, who is ready to accept a five-year contract that will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2026.
Chelsea and Sevilla have been concluded in advanced negotiations to finalize the payment structure. There is a chance that a deal with the plus-cash player involved Kurt Zouma could help persuade La Laga League to part with their star.
Chelsea are very close to the first signing of the summer
Chelsea are ready to confirm their first signing of the flight, according to Daily mail. The Blues are eager to bring in a third goalkeeper to replace Willy Caballero, who left the club this summer. The Premier League giants have decided Marcus Bettinelli as a man for work. The 29-year-old’s contract with Fulham expires this summer and he will join the London side as a free agent.
The Englishman reportedly refused to move to Aston Villa to join Chelsea. The player’s medicine has already been booked and could be presented in the next two days.
