All the very latest Chelsea news, views and transfer rumours from football.london as the Blues continue their search for their first signing of this summer’s transfer window.
Chelsea Make Erling Haaland Decision
In a desperate attempt to try and lure Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland to Stamford Bridge this summer, Chelsea are ready to step up their search and launch a humongous bid.
According to reports, the Blues are ready to table a £150million offer for the Norway international in the hope that it will be enough to convince Dortmund to offload him this summer.
Chelsea have been tracking the Leeds-born striker since before Christmas, meaning they have done plenty of homework on him in the last few months to determine whether or not he is worth £150m.
It has already been well documented that Chelsea will have to pay over £100m to win the battle for his signature, but £150m would be an enormous offer. However, should Dortmund accept it and Chelsea win the race for his signature, it would no doubt leave their Premier League rivals stunned and almost certainly shaking.
Kennedy Missing Ahead of Pre Season
It’s set to be an extremely busy summer for Blues boss Thomas Tuchel as he looks to add three players in a bid to close the gap between and last season’s Premier League winners Manchester City.
An interesting line on the future of Chelsea forward Kenedy now.
According to Brazilian outlet Extra, he has failed to report for pre-season training ahead of the 2021/22 season, although whether that has been agreed by the club remains to be seen.
The 25-year-old spent last season with Granada and is interesting Flamengo.
