The Chelsea Transfer market is in full swing now and rumours fly about. Let’s take a close summary of the market.
Bayern Munich name asking price on Chelsea target Kingsley Coman
Reported Chelsea target Kingsley Coman could cost up to £80million, according to Fussball Transfers.
The Bayern Munich winger has two years left on his current deal with the Bundesliga champions and contract talks have stalled with the Bavarian club.
Chelsea have been linked with the Frenchman but Bayern’s huge asking price may scare the Blues off.
Declan Rice posts picture of him in Chelsea shirt before swiftly deleting
Blues target Declan Rice posted an old picture of him and Mason Mount in Chelsea kits before swiftly deleting it.
The West Ham midfielder tweeted the picture captioned: “Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t achieve your dreams.
Special moment today Mason Mount.”
Bizarrely, the 22-year-old felt it was necessary to delete his picture shortly later, sparking a number of the Blues faithful speculating that he could be on his way to Stamford Bridge this summer.
Memphis Depay named Chelsea as a potential destination
Memphis Depay named Chelsea as one of the clubs he would like to play for back in 2019.
“I want a new transfer to a top-level club this summer. Lyon is a big club but it’s not one of the five best in Europe,” Depay told Helden.
“I want to go to a club like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain or Bayern Munich.
“I want to go to a city that suits me and a club that suits me, to a team that really wants to play football.”
Chelsea emerge as shock favourites to sign Jack Grealish
Chelsea have emerged as favourites to sign Jack Grealish, according to a report from Fichajes.

Giroud Reaches agreement with Milan
Milan have reportedly reached an agreement with Chelsea frontman Olivier Giroud, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.
The Blues triggered an extension to renew his deal for an extra year to avoid letting him leave Stamford Bridge for free this summer.
The Report claims that Giroud has agreed on a two-year contract worth £3million a year with the Rossoneri.
Jorginho makes Italy and Chelsea comparison
Jorginho has compared the current Italy team to his Chelsea side.
“This group is similar to Chelsea. Everybody wants to win, the younger ones and the most experienced ones. Everyone wants to achieve something important,” Jorginho said in a press conference this afternoon.
The 29-year-old even went on to compare his Azzuri teammate Nicolo Barella to Blues midfielder N’golo Kante.
“They are very similar, they run for everybody, for 120 minutes, they cover the entire pitch and help us recover the ball. I think they are very similar.”
Blues make improved Hakimi bid
From a curretn Chelsea defender to potentially a future one.
Correire dello Sport report that the Blues have offered €50m plus Emerson Palmieri in an effort to take the Moroccan to Stamford Bridge.
However, Serie A giants Inter Milan are thought to only be interested in straight cash as opposed to any potential swap deals.
