Cole wants Chilwell at Chelsea
Football Transfer Centre


Chelsea legend Ashley Cole has recommended his former club to acquire the services of Ben Chilwell from fellow Premier League side Leicester City.

The Blues are in the mark for a new left-sided defender with the likes of Marcos Alonso and Emerson struggling for consistency while Cesar Azpilicueta has likewise been unimpressive in a makeshift role.

As a result, Chilwell has been earmarked as the prime transfer target for the January transfer window and Cole believes that the Blues should make an approach for the Foxes star in the New Year.

“I would love to see him at Chelsea,” Cole told talkSPORT. “He’s doing really, really well at Leicester. He’s enjoying the way Brendan [Rodgers] plays and his system; he’s got that licence to attack.”

Leicester boss Rodgers has recently stated that the club are unlikely to offload any of their first-team stars next month and Cole believes the Blues may struggle to find the breakthrough at the midway stage of the season.

“I think he’s quality and I’ve heard he’s a Chelsea fan, too, so I would like to see him here. Whether he would want to leave, or if Leicester would want to sell him, that’s something the clubs would have to talk about,” he added.

Chilwell has featured in 13 league games for the Foxes this term, contributing one goal and three assists. He has also been a regular with England and recently bagged three assists against Montenegro.

Jadon Sancho news

United favourites to sign Sancho


Manchester United are reportedly ahead of the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool in the race to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

The teenager has had another top-notch season with BVB and he has already bagged 10 goals and 11 assists in all competitions for the side this term.

Chelsea and Liverpool have recently been heavily linked with the ex-Manchester City graduate but The Mirror claims the Red Devils hold the advantage in the player’s pursuit.

Sancho’s relationship with Dortmund has taken a downward turn over the past few weeks but sporting director Michael Zorc has made it clear that he won’t be sold in January.

The attacker is currently valued in excess of £100m and United may have to wait until the summer to get their hands of Sancho, who has already represented England on 11 occasions.

Sancho’s existing deal with Dortmund only expires in the summer of 2022. He is presently on a £190,000-a-week package and United will have to make him one of the Premier League’s highest earners, should they land his services.

Arsenal to hold talks with Mauricio Pochettino?

Pochettino on Arsenal radar?
Football Transfer Centre


Arsenal are reportedly planning to hold talks with former Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino regarding the managerial vacancy at the club.

The north London giants parted ways with Unai Emery towards the end of November and they have since appointed Freddie Ljungberg as the interim manager.

According to Express, the Gunners are keen to fast track their bid to sign a new head coach and they are expected to hold talks with Pochettino, who remains one of their targets.

Pochettino returned to Argentina shortly after his dismissal at Tottenham last month but he is expected to fly back to England in the coming days with a view to sorting out his future.

Aside from the Argentine, the Gunners are also interested in the likes of Mikel Arteta, Patrick Vieira and Paulo Sousa and they are expected to hold talks with each of them in the near future.

Arsenal recently ended a nine-match winless run with a 3-2 comeback win over West Ham United in the Premier League. The victory has propelled them to the top half of the standings and within seven points off the top four.

Dortmund won’t sell Sancho in January – Zorc


Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has clarified that the club are unlikely to sanction the sale of Jadon Sancho in January amid the widespread interest from Chelsea.

Sancho has been a revelation for the German giants over the past 18 months and in the current campaign, he has already amassed nine goals and 10 assists in all competitions.

Despite this, there has been the talk of him making a possible return to the Premier League amid claims that he has a mixed relationship with manager Lucien Favre.

Speaking to Bild, Zorc has now clarified that Dortmund have not changed their transfer stance on Sancho and the England international is expected to remain with the club for the campaign.

“We’re continuing to plan with him. He’s a fundamental player for us and I do not see any scenario where he leaves us,” he was quoted as saying by the German publication.

Chelsea have recently been tipped to make a £100m bid to land Sancho and it remains to be seen whether they can reach a similar transfer agreement to that of Christian Pulisic whereby the forward could be loaned back to Dortmund for the rest of the season.

Lampard provides injury update on Tammy Abraham


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has provided a fresh update on the fitness of Tammy Abraham following the Blues’ 2-1 win over Aston Villa in the Premier League.

The England international missed the West Ham United game with a hip problem but he was able to make his comeback against the Villains on Wednesday night where he bagged the opening goal.

However, he was unable to complete the 90 minutes as he was substituted with a possible knee concern but Lampard has dismissed suggestions that he could miss the forthcoming league clash against Everton.

In a press conference covered by Football.London, he said: “It doesn’t seem too bad. Tammy at the moment is Tammy. A striker near the top, showing his all round game. A personality in the dressing room.”

Abraham has been the stand out performer for the Blues in the attack with 12 goals and four assists and he will be hoping to continue the good form on the trip to Merseyside this weekend.
