19th July 2021, Chelsea Transfer News Roundup

Myles Peart-Harris

He’ll be joining former Chelsea youth player Nathan Young-Coombes if the deal goes through successfully.

No fee has been reported yet for Peart-Harris but selling him now would pay more than accepting compensation if he signs a pre-contract deal with another club from January.

Lewis Bate

Five clubs have expressed interest in Bate, West Ham, Leeds, Liverpool, Leicester and Brighton.

West Ham and Leeds seem to be pulling away from the other clubs in terms of solid interest and placing a bid.

Bate has made it clear to Chelsea he does not want to agree a new deal. The club have made a good offer, which is appreciated, but Bate’s primary concern is the chance of first-team football in the future rather than financial gain. (The Athletic)

Bate has already gone on a following spree of many Leeds players which could mean he has already agreed a deal with the Premier League club. Tino Livramento

Chelsea’s academy player of the season is being strongly targeted by Brighton.

Livramento wants to leave this summer but Brighton are not close to submitting a bid. (The Athletic)

Just like Bate and Peart-Harris, seeing Livramento sign a pre-contract deal in January would see Chelsea only receiving up to £500k for one of the most talented 18-year-old wingbacks in England. Many Chelsea fans will be sad to see him go but if Chelsea can get a big fee this summer, the board will not hesitate to do so.

Zappacosta is being targeted by Firorentina for a loan move.

The player is being target by Firoentina, with the Tuscan club close to selling existing right-back option Pol Lirola to Marseille on a permanent basis for €12 million, and having identified Zappacosta as their priority arrival in his place.

Zappacosta is still on Inter Milan’s list but it seems Fiorentina have overtaken Inter as of right now. (SempreInter)

Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi

One of the recent reports emanating from Germany is that Chelsea have offered both Hudson-Odoi and striker Tammy Abraham as part of their bid. The Athletic has been assured there is no truth as far as the former is concerned, while Dortmund have no interest in the latter.

Sasa Kalajdzic

A new name on the block for Chelsea’s striker targets is Sasa.

The Austrian is 6″7 and will take a lot of persuading from Chelsea to force Stuttgart to sell.

An attempt to match the aerial prowess of Giroud can be seen as the only thought by the board and/or Tuchel and his team.

The striker is 24 now and Stuttgart say they have not been approached by Chelsea yet. (The Athletic)Declan Rice

Tuchel has spoken to staff members about Rice and is believed to appreciate his qualities. However, the 22-year-old has three years left on his current deal and West Ham have made it clear that it will cost a fortune to leave. 

£100m is the reported fee that West Ham would require to let their main man go and Chelsea are completely unwilling to even entertain this offer. (The Athletic)

Aurelien Tchouameni

However, it is thought the club are giving serious consideration to acquiring Monaco’s highly-rated 21-year-old Aurelien Tchouameni instead of Declan Rice. (The Athletic)

This is solely to do with the hefty price tag related to the Englishman.

Chelsea reportedly met with Tchouameni’s agent last week. (Carefreeyouth)Malang Sarr and Ethan Ampadu

Sarr and Ampadu look set to head out on loan again for the upcoming season. (The Athletic)

Niklas Sule

Chelsea have looked at the possibility of bring Sule to Stamford Bridge. (The Athletic)

Sule was linked with Chelsea when Lampard was manager, so it is clear the board rates Sule very highly and thinks he could be a good centre back to bring in.

Wayne Hennessey and Marcus Bettinelli

Both are free agents now and Chelsea are looking to bring in one of these men to fill in the third-choice goalkeeper role. (The Athletic)

This role is notorious for being one of the best jobs in football. Elite coaching, elite facilities, elite paycheck and only have to play a few times a year, just ask Rob Green.

Adama Traore

Chelsea still maintain an interest in Wolves player Adama Traore. (The Athletic)

Erling Haaland

Haaland is believed to have told friends and representatives that he will remain at Dortmund, according to ESPN.

This adds to a report a few days ago that suggested Haaland has bought a new house in Germany and adds to the unlikeliness of Haaland joining the Blues this summer.

Ike Ugbo

Ugbo has now agreed personal terms with Genk. They’ve been leading the race as reported last week. (Fabrizio Romano)

Chelsea are looking to raise the initial asking price of around £5m due to a number of clubs being involved in trying to secure Ugbo’s signature.

Russian team Rostov bid £3m for Ugbo in January and this was rejected by Chelsea.

Anderlecht are considering purchasing Ike Ugbo using Albert Lokonga’s fee of €17.5m + €4.5m add ons. (Goal)
