    CECH MATE

    Petr Cech is reportedly playing a key role in the hunt for Kepa Arrizabalaga’s replacement.

    ESPN claim he is attempting to convince Marc-Andre ter Stegen to join the club.

    Cech played a big part in convincing the Barcelona keeper's German compatriot Timo Werner to move to Stamford Bridge earlier this summer.

    During an interview with Sport1 the Bundesliga winning manager was asked if he would like to sign the German from rivals Bayer Leverkusen..

    Flick responded: “It’s not an issue, so I don’t worry about it.”

    Chelsea have a manager who bleeds blue, and he is being fully backed by the desire and wealth of Roman Abramovich.

    “This summer has already seen two marquee signings arrive at the club in the shape of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, and we are expecting a lot more activity to come.

    “Chelsea need a bit of an overhaul and many players will ultimately not make it at Stamford Bridge. Here I take a look at which players I would keep around, sell, or loan out come next season.”

  • YOUTH BEAUTY

    Chelsea's U23 side were crowned Division One champions painting a bright future for Frank Lampard's plans to give youth a chance.

    Their U23s star man was Billy Gilmour, who is up for the Player of the Season award.

    He of course broke into Lampard's first-team before cruelly suffering a knee injury that cut short his season.

  • BLUES SERG NEAR

    Chelsea target Sergio Reguilon has fuelled speculation of a potential switch from Real Madrid to the Premier League.

    While the La Liga defender insisted his thoughts are firmly fixed on completing his loan at Sevilla, he refused to rule out a transfer to England’s top flight.

    When quizzed by Marca he replied: “Who knows what will happen?”

    Reguilon added: “If my year at Sevilla had not been good, then this would not be happening. These teams would not ring.

    “I’ve been saying since quarantine that until the season is over I won’t be talking about my future.

    “I have no complaints about anything, about the city, the club, my colleagues.

    “I feel very loved. Who knows what will happen in the future.”

  • BLUE BEAUTY

    Chelsea target Sergio Reguilon has fuelled speculation of a potential switch from Real Madrid to the Premier League.

    While the La Liga defender insisted his thoughts are firmly fixed on completing his loan at Sevilla, he refused to rule out a transfer to England’s top flight.

    Frank Lampard’s Blues are on the hunt for a new left-back this summer with Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell among the names reported to be on Chelsea’s target list. 

    And left-back Reguilon, 23, has also been strongly linked with a Stamford Bridge move. 

    However, the Madrid loanee and his Sevilla teammates are yet to finish their season with the club competing in the 2019-2020 Europa League contest. 

    Reguilon, who has enjoyed a successful loan spell at Sevilla, was named in WhoScored’s La Liga team of the season. 

  • GIFT OF THE GAB

    Former Chelsea target Gabriel is reportedly close to joining their London rivals Arsenal from Lille.

    French media claim that the Gunners could sign the Brazilian defender as early as next week.

    Manchester United and Everton had also been keen to snap him up.

    But after Mikel Arteta's side qualified for Europe, they have stepped up their pursuit of the centre-back.

  • BLUE IS THE COLOUR

    Chelsea have NINE stars out as they attempt to stage a historic comeback against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

    The Blues squad has been ravaged by injury and unavailability as they look to overturn a 3-0 deficit from the first leg in their Last 16 European tie.

    Frank Lampard's men will have to bounce back in some style from their FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal last weekend if they are going to progress.

    The West London club are without two central players in American star Christian Pulisic and Spanish skipper Cesar Azpilicueta.

    The integral duo both limped off at Wembley with hamstring problems and will not feature.

    Here's how Chelsea could line-up at the Allianz Arena..

  • DOUBLE DELIGHT

  • BLUE MOON

  • CECH MATE

    Petr Cech is reportedly leading Chelsea's “charm offensive” for Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

    The German stopper, 28, could be nearing the Nou Camp exit door as he enters the final two-years of his contract.

    It is understood that the Blues have submitted an offer to Barca to replace flop shot-stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

    According to ESPN, Cech has significantly helped pull the strings of the transfer negotiations as he views Ter Stegen as a “outstanding goalkeeper” and “leader”.

    The West London icon was appointed to the role of technical and performance advisor last summer.

    And it has been claimed that he also helped entice Timo Werner to Stamford Bridge when he made an “undercover” trip to Germany before lockdown.

  • WILL I NEVER

    Willian has reportedly been left 'upset and offended' by how his time at Chelsea has come to an end.

    According to ESPN, the Brazilian – who is understood to be close to joining Arsenal – felt as though the Blues lacked the desire to keep him.

    This is despite the 31-year-old rejecting a two-year deal by Chelsea to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge.

    Willian is keen to remain in London, choosing to sign for Arsenal ahead of Barcelona and Inter Miami.

  • REECE LIGHTNING

  • FIK OF THE BUNCH

    Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori is being targeted by French side Rennes, according to reports.

    L'Equipe says the Ligue 1 outfit have contacted Chelsea to begin talks over a potential deal for the 22-year-old.

    The report from France suggests the nature of a deal remains unclear, but a loan move would be more likely.

    Lampard rates Tomori after managing him the last two years and although he may not be in his immediate plans he would be hard-pushed to sell the centre-back.

    The Athletic previously reported a permanent deal is not in The Blues' vision.

    Tomori was last month linked with a loan move across London to West Ham to help Lampard swoop for Declan Rice – with talk he sees the Hammers man as a future John Terry figure.

  • WILL POWER

    Arsenal are set to confirm the signing of Willian on a free transfer, according to Sky Sports.

    They claim the Brazilian has agreed a three-year deal, with the Gunners beating Barcelona and Inter Miami to his signature.

    It has been stated that Willian wants to play under Mikel Arteta and work with his fellow Brazilian Edu at the Emirates.

  • KAI'S NOT THE LIMIT

    Ilkay Gundogan has described Kai Havertz's potential as “unlimited” as the German starlet gets set for a move to Chelsea.

    Leverkusen are desperate to get the best out of the attacking midfielder in what would surely be his last few games for Bayer in the Europa League, starting tomorrow night in their second leg against Rangers.

    The Manchester City ace told Bild: “I expect great things from him. Kai’s potential is unlimited, there are no limits.

    “He brings a lot with him, and now it’s up to him to show off this enormous talent.

    “He has this calm and serenity on the ball, and is a prudent type on the other side.”

  • WILL POWER

    Arsenal's move to sign Willian on a free transfer is reportedly close to being announced.

    The Brazilian winger, 31, rejected Chelsea's latest two-year contract extension offer – demanding three years or no deal.

    The Blues have a long-standing policy of not offering players aged 30 or over any more than one-year extensions.

    And Arsenal have taken advantage of the West London stand-off by handing Willian a three-year contract worth £100,000 per week, say ESPN.

    Romano confirmed the deal was on the brink of going through, too – with Arteta fully on board.

    His tweet continued: “Willian approved also by Arteta.

    “Just a matter of time and he'll until 2023 – confirmed.”

  • BLUE STEEL

    Chelsea target Kai Havertz is 100 per cent committed to Bayer Leverkusen, according to the German side's manager.

    Peter Bosz spoke before last night's Europa League game against Rangers to confirm Havertz was still giving his all despite the consistent speculation with a move to Stamford Bridge.

    In his pre-match press conference, Bosz said: “I will answer these questions [on Havertz] very shortly.

    “Yes, he will play and yes I'm convinced that he's 100 per cent still fighting for Leverkusen.”

  • BEING FRANK

    Frank Lampard has been told to sign Jan Oblak to help Chelsea compete with Liverpool and Man City.

    Former Blues defender Frank Sinclair said: “It's not a secret that Frank lost this trust in Kepa.

    “In previous games he's made some vital mistakes.

    “However, you have to remember that he’s a really young goalkeeper, the £71m price tag shadows the fact that he's a young goalkeeper, fairly inexperienced in playing senior football and the standards are set very high for him.

    “At the same time, if you get the opportunity to bring in Jan Oblak then I think if you want to compete with Liverpool and Manchester City, Chelsea need a goalkeeper of the same standard and certainly Jan Oblak would produce that.”

  • GOOD MORNING CHELSEA FANS

    The Blues are reportedly willing to listen to offers for Jorginho to fund their move for Declan Rice.

    The 28-year-old is one of ten first-team stars that Frank Lampard could offload this summer.

    According to The Telegraph, Chelsea will use Jorginho's fee to boost their bid for Rice.

    The England star is also thought to be keen on a move back to Stamford Bridge, although he is unlikely to to force his way out of West Ham.

    Chelsea are also in advanced talks to sign Real Madrid's Sergio Reguilon, according to reports.

    It is no secret the Blues are trying to sign a left-back and Frank Lampard's side have been strongly linked with Leicester star Ben Chilwell.

    But the Foxes demands of £80million plus for the England ace may have made a move impossible and caused the West London side to look elsewhere.

    ESPN reports the negotiations to bring Reguilon from the Bernabeu to Stamford Bridge are at an advanced stage with just the finishing touches required.

    Antonio Rudiger believes Chelsea will greatly miss “calm and humble” Willian if the Brazil winger seals his Arsenal move.

    The Mail reports the 27-year-old as saying: “Since day one of coming to Chelsea, he and David Luiz got me into the team and helped me out in the first couple of months because it was not that easy.

    “He is a great guy and a really, really good footballer.

    “He is calm and humble and it will be sad if I don't see him again as a team-mate.

    “He is not the type of player who talks that much.”

  • WOULD BE RICE

    Chelsea are reportedly willing to listen to offers for Jorginho to fund their move for Declan Rice.

    The 28-year-old is one of ten first-team stars that Frank Lampard could offload this summer.

    According to The Telegraph, Chelsea will use Jorginho's fee to boost their bid for Rice.

    The England star is also thought to be keen on a move back to Stamford Bridge, although he is unlikely to to force his way out of West Ham.

  • HEND HINT

    Sheffield United have dropped a big hint that Dean Henderson will not be returning to them next season – by having a £12million rejected for Bournemouth’s Aaron Ramsdale.

    SunSport exclusively revealed last month the Blades were eyeing up a reunion with their former stopper Ramsdale to fill the void of Manchester United loanee Henderson.

    Chris Wilder has now made a firm offer which has been turned down by the relegated Cherries.

    Bournemouth see Ramsdale as a future England goalkeeper and value the 22-year-old far higher.

    It remains to be seen if the Blades return with an improved bid.

    But it suggests they are expecting Henderson, who has spent the last two seasons on loan from Old Trafford, to head back to his parent club amid interest from Chelsea.

  • SERG IN DEMAND

    Chelsea arw in advanced talks to sign Real Madrid's Sergio Reguilon, according to reports.

    It is no secret the Blues are trying to sign a left-back and Frank Lampard's side have been strongly linked with Leicester star Ben Chilwell.

    But the Foxes demands of £80million plus for the England ace may have made a move impossible and caused the West London side to look elsewhere.

    ESPN reports the negotiations to bring Reguilon from the Bernabeu to Stamford Bridge are at an advanced stage with just the finishing touches required.

  • LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN

    Neil Warnock thinks Rangers and Celtic would be able to finish in the top six of the Premier League.

    He told BBC Scottish Football podcast: “If you put Celtic and Rangers down in England, you’re talking about the top six.

    “Those two clubs, if they got the money that the English clubs have coming in, they would spend it. They’d spend it on good players and they would then compete.

    “I look at Celtic and Rangers – I don’t think about Man City or Liverpool, I think they’re way ahead – but I think the rest below that, Man United, Chelsea, I think Rangers and Celtic would more than cope with that.

    “The money that the Premier League [clubs] get, it wouldn’t take long (for Celtic and Rangers to compete) – within 18 months, two years.”

  • RICE RICE BABY

    Chelsea are reportedly willing to listen to offers for Jorginho to fund their move for Declan Rice.

    The 28-year-old is one of ten first-team stars that Frank Lampard could offload this summer.

    According to The Telegraph, Chelsea will use Jorginho's fee to boost their bid for Rice.

    Jorginho made the move to Stamford Bridge in 2018 when Maurizio Sarri was in charge.

    The Italian star made 31 league appearances for Lampard's side during the 2019/20 campaign.

    But the Blues boss is prepared to get rid of him to bring in his top target.

    Jorginho has tipped to reunite with Sarri at Juventus this summer.
