Chelsea are reportedly confident that they can beat the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid in the pursuit of Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho.

The England international has been a consistent performer for the Bundesliga side over the past two years and he has already bagged seven goals and nine goals for the club this term.

Despite this, there has been a sense of uncertainty regarding the attacker’s future a the club with manager Lucien Favre recently criticising him in public for his attitude.

According to Goal.com, the Blues are eyeing a swoop for the former Manchester City graduate and they are prepared to break their transfer record with a £100m plus bid.

It is added that Sancho shares a close relationship with fellow compatriots Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi from the England youth ranks and the Blues are aiming to lure the teenager with the influence of the duo.

Chelsea have already served nearly half of their year-long transfer ban but they are increasingly positive of winning their appeal to sign new players next month.

Meanwhile, Dortmund have made the decision to keep hold of Sancho until the summer at the least and it remains to be seen whether their stance changes during the forthcoming transfer window.

Chelsea offer out-of-favour striker to AC Milan?

Giroud set for move to Serie A?
Football Transfer Centre


Chelsea have reportedly offered AC Milan with the chance to sign Olivier Giroud on a cut-price deal when the transfer window reopens next month.

The Frenchman has received limited first-team action under the guidance of Frank Lampard and he only made his second league start of the season last weekend.

That decision came as a result of Tammy Abraham‘s injury setback and Giroud is well aware that he will be dropped when the England international makes his return in the near future.

According to Calciomercato, the Blues are more than willing to offload Giroud in the New Year and they have presented the Rossoneri with the chance to sign the former Arsenal man.

The Serie A outfit are currently looking at a reunion with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is available on a free transfer but reports indicate that they could turn their attention to Giroud, should the move fall through.

AC Milan’s cross-town rivals Inter have also been linked with the marksman in recent weeks. Antonio Conte, formerly of Chelsea, is keen on adding competition to Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku for the striker positions.

Barkley available for Valencia clash


Chelsea have received an injury boost ahead of the Valencia game with midfielder Ross Barkley participating in training alongside his Blues teammates.

The England international has been out of action for more than a month with an ankle concern and he recently withdrew from the Three Lions squad for the same reason.

However, ahead of the Champions League clash against Valencia, Barkley has returned to full training and he is in contention to make the matchday squad, Football.London claims.

The Blues are currently tied on seven points with Ajax and Valencia in their Champions League group but they are trailing both of them on the head-to-head record after four group games.

As such, they may have to win the remaining two matches to qualify or else they will be dependent on the results elsewhere. The Blues suffered a 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge during the last meeting against Valencia, which was also the competition’s opener.

Chelsea plan contract talks with trio


Chelsea are reportedly planning to reward new contracts to Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori and Reece James following their impressive performances during the first half of the season.

Abraham and Tomori have played nearly every game since the start of the campaign and their displays have recently been rewarded with roles with the England national side.

In comparison, Reece James has not been able to command a regular run of matches but he has recently impressed on the right side of the defence and got the better of Crystal Palace‘s Wilfried Zaha before the international break.

According to Goal.com, the Blues are set to hold talks over contract extensions with the trio and they are confident that an agreement will be reached with each of them in the near future.

Meanwhile, the Blues are also keen on extending the contract of young graduate Tino Anjorin, who has hugely impressed for the development side. The 17-year-old made his debut in the League Cup against Grimsby Town earlier this season.

Pulisic in doubt for Man City clash


Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic is reportedly a major doubt for the Premier League game against Manchester City as he has yet to recover from a hip problem.

The USA international sustained the injury during the 2-0 league win over Crystal Palace before the international break and that saw him withdraw from the national team squad for the Nations League games.

According to The Sun, the 22-year-old has not recovered from the injury setback and he is now facing a race against time as he looks to prove his fitness for the Cityzens clash.

Pulisic has been in fascinating form over the past month and he has been the standout performer for the Blues in the Premier League in the previous three matches where he has scored five goals.

In his probable absence, Callum Hudson-Odoi could feature on the left side of the attack but the England international needs to up his game, having struggled for form with club and country of late.

Drinkwater set for Chelsea return
Football Transfer Centre


Burnley will reportedly turn down the option to extend the loan contract of midfielder Danny Drinkwater beyond the turn of the year. The 29-year-old joined the Clarets from the Blues on a six-month loan deal in August to resurrect his flagging career but things have failed to pave the way as planned.

Drinkwater has been sidelined from first-team duties since September after getting injured in a brawl outside a nightclub and he has yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Clarets.

According to The Sun, Sean Dyche‘s side have the option of extending the midfielder’s temporary deal by another six months but they are likely to turn down the option.

The former Premier League midfielder has struggled to command regular gametime since his move to Chelsea and he has managed 12 league appearances over the past two years.

Blues boss Frank Lampard has already deemed Drinkwater as surplus to requirements and the midfielder would certainly have to pursue another challenge elsewhere, should Burnley send him back to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea want Jadon Sancho?


Chelsea will reportedly battle with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid in the race to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund next summer.

Sancho has been a revelation since moving to the Bundesliga from Manchester City two years ago and he has amassed 15 goals and 19 assists from just 42 league appearances.

United had failed with an approach to sign the England international last summer but it appears that they could face stiff competition in eight months’ time with both Chelsea and Real Madrid holding an interest.

The Blues have fared impressively despite the year-long transfer ban but the club’s hierarchy are not taking things for granted and they are expected to spend when the embargo concludes.

The left-back position remains a problematic position for the west London giants but Lampard is also said to be eyeing a world-class winger to compete with the likes of Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi in the long term.

Juventus to make move for Chelsea star Kante

Kante on Juventus radar?


Juventus are expected to make a January transfer approach for Chelsea star N’Golo Kante. The French defensive midfielder has helped the Blues to Premier League title success but is reportedly keen to make a move elsewhere in pursuit of Champions League glory.

Juventus are ready to splash close to 120 million euros to sign Kante from the Stamford Bridge outfit and are confident that a deal can be reached.

The midfielder, who previously helped Leicester City to a Premier League title, has indicated previously that he is happy at the Blues, but there are continual rumours that the player will eventually depart England for a move to either Italy or Spain.

Former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is keen to link up with his former player at his current club Juventus and has indicated that he would spend heavily to secure a deal for the World Cup winning player.

Kante has a contract with Chelsea until 2023 and the 28-year-old had previously indicated that he would be willing to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge beyond that spell.

Tammy Abraham news

Abraham close to Chelsea extension


Chelsea are reportedly on the cusp of committing Tammy Abraham to a new long-term contract. 

The England international contributed 26 goals during a loan stint with Aston Villa last term and he has carried over the form with the Blues this term with nine goals across all competitions.

As a result, the 21-year-old has emerged as the undisputed striker under Frank Lampard and the club are now working towards extending his contract beyond the summer of 2022.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Blues are in advanced negotiations with the striker regarding the renewal and they are very confident of getting a deal over the line.

Abraham presently earns around £50,000-a-week at the club but he stands the chance of trebling his wages after standing out with his performances upfront.

Abraham produced another impressive performance against Newcastle United at the weekend but Marcos Alonso eventually made the difference with the winning strike in the 73rd minute.
