Olivier Giroud heading to Tottenham Hotspur?

Giroud to Spurs?


Tottenham Hotspur are reported to be eyeing a surprise move for Olivier Giroud from Chelsea with manager Jose Mourinho keen on finding a replacement for the injured Harry Kane.

Kane has recently undergone a surgery for a hamstring injury and reports have emerged that the England international could be sidelined for the rest of the campaign.

As a result, the north London side have stepped up their pursuit of a new striker and an exclusive from 90min claims that they have an eye on signing Giroud from the Blues.

Giroud has grown frustrated with the lack of gametime at Stamford Bridge and of late, he has been left out of the matchday squad on numerous occasions with Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi being the preferred striker choices.

A move to Inter Milan has been touted over the past few weeks but the lack of progress seems to have alerted Spurs, who are prepared to meet the Blues’ asking price and hand the striker with a two-and-a-half year deal.

For now, Chelsea are reluctant to do any business with their arch London rivals, who are competing for the top four. It remains to be seen whether their stance changes prior to the transfer deadline, suppose Giroud is still at the club.

Tottenham are reportedly in talks with PSV Eindhoven over the signing of winger Steven Bergwijn, according to the Guardian.

The report also adds that the Dutch winger’s agent has been spotted in England, possibly due to work out a deal with the North London club. In the meantime, Bergwijn has also been dropped out of the squad amidst the transfer speculation.

Bergwijn, who is rated at £30m, has been excellent for PSV this season, racking up 5 goals and 10 assists in Eredivise. He is also in pole position to be a starter for the Netherlands in Euro 2020

The 23-year-old also turns out to be a key target of Premier League club Leicester, having rejected a deal to join La Liga club Sevilla last summer.

It would mark Spurs’ second signing in the transfer window following Gedson Fernandes, should the deal materialise for the Dutch prospect.

Spurs are also in the market for a striker following the injury to their talisman Harry Kane. Willian Jose, Timo Werner and Piatek are all on their transfer radar.

Manchester United will reportedly seek to land the services of Ben Chiwell from Leicester City during next summer’s transfer window.

The Red Devils have utilised different options on the left side of the defence and Brandon Williams and Luke Shaw have been the regular picks of late.

Both of them have impressed in certain games for the season but Metro claims that they will make the raid for a new left-sided defender this summer.

It is added that Chilwell is the prime target on their radar and they are optimistic of their chances of signing the England international prior to the 2020/21 season.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers has recently indicated that the club won’t entertain any bids for their players but the transfer stance may change by the summer.

They have sanctioned the sales of Riyad Mahrez and Harry Maguire in the 2018 and 2019 summer transfer windows and Chilwell could likewise head through the exit door in five months’ time amid the interest from United and Chelsea.

Frank Lampard provides fresh update on Tammy Abrahams injury

No Abraham for Hull clash – Lampard


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that the club are still assessing Tammy Abraham‘s ankle injury which was picked up during the recent Premier League clash against Arsenal.

The England international sustained the problem during the closing stages of the 2-2 draw against the Gunners and he has now been ruled out of the FA Cup fourth round tie at Hull City.

Speaking ahead of that game, Lampard revealed that Abraham has avoided a hairline fracture on his ankle but the club are still monitoring his ankle to find out the extent of the injury.

“The good news is he hasn’t fractured anything. We were worried about a hairline fracture. The other news is we still have to see how he develops. It’s not a clear-cut one,” he told Chelseafc.com.

“He’s not fit for the weekend but whether he’ll be fit for Leicester after that I’m still not sure. I haven’t got great news, or the news for you. It’s still not clear.”

Abraham has contributed 15 goals for the Blues in all competitions this term and he has been the standout striker upfront with his back-up Michy Batshuayi scoring just five times.

Batshuayi has failed to find the net in any competition since September and the Belgian will be hoping to end the goalless streak when the Blues tackle the Tigers at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday evening.

Abraham out of Hull City clash?


Chelsea could be without the services of Tammy Abraham for the FA Cup fourth round clash against Hull City on the road.

The England international picked up an ankle injury in the 2-2 Premier League draw against Arsenal and the Blues are yet to know the extent of the problem.

According to Football.London, the striker is likely to miss out on the matchday squad to face Hull City in the FA Cup fourth round tie at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday evening.

Aside from Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are among the other absentees for the club but the latter is close to making a comeback after a long-term Achilles problem.

The Blues have struggled to secure back-to-back wins in the Premier League since the last international break but they are still six points ahead of Manchester United in the race for the final Champions League spot.

Lampard’s side have benefited from the inconsistent form from the teams below them in the standings but can’t afford to maintain the current run of results for an extended period of time.
