Hi ed002 how are you mate? Anyone in particular Chelsea are looking at for January? Doea our current form have any bearing on it? Don't have a go at me if that's a stupid question also:P

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea won't buy for the sake of it but are trying to do something from January - I have previously mentioned Neves and Marquinhos - but they are looking at others as well, but clubs really don't want to be selling in January.}

Marquinhos isn't that strong. Can't see him fitting in the premier league he's not that tall tall for a CB either. I'd very much like to see us chase Laporte instead of him.

I really like Laporte actually but I would imagine he would be severely over priced and as ed002 Said unlikely to happen in January

I've been watching a lot of Laporte lately per Jacksons lavish praise and I've got to say he has a lot of nice attributes. For starters he's incredibly young and has been an established member of his first team for a couple of years. He's left footed which is a rarity and I believe he's the only player were looking at in that position that is left footed. He speaks French which Zouma (our other long term centrehalf) speaks. I was also very impressed with his mobility when watching him play and he can certainly handle himself physically. Other than varane he would be my second choice.

Laporte has played left back as well, so that shows that he's indeed quite fast and mobile for a centre back. He'd be ideal but I see him ending up at Barcelona actually.
Niklas Süle from Hoffenheim is also a very promising centre back. So there are some options out there if they want to go with a younger player.

01 Oct 2015 06:24:50 Hi Ed002, you at times provide an extensive list of potential targets. Any update?

{Ed002's Note - Not at this time but the club is making efforts in preparation for January.}

Think we need a striker, 2 wingers, 3 centre mids, right back, left back, 2 central defenders and a goalie asap.

Hi Eds,
Long time visitor, first time poster. Thanks for all the great work you do, I'm just wondering whether or not the rumours of interest in Marco Amelia are true? Seems a bit strange as although we need an experienced third choice he spent the last 2 seasons in an amateur league and Serie B as a back up keeper. If not Amelia, is there another free agent target?

Cheers guys!

{Ed002's Note - Marco Amelia has been at the club and they are looking to take him as cover for the short-term. After making offers for another goalkeeper which were rejected in the summer the club did not look for alternatives, perhaps they should have done.}

If you are watching the Porto game and assuming he is playing - keep an eye on Neves who Chelsea have a very, very strong interest in.

Cheers Ed what type of player is he?

{Ed002's Note - Outfield.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't know much about him. He's 18 years old and is considered one of the biggest Portuguese talents around. He's a central midfielder.

Agree0 Disagree0

On that performance- sign him up! Do the deal now the game has ended! Also get the price of Brahimi and Imbula, all 3 would greatly improve our squad.

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Sep 2015 22:16:03
He looked decent to be fair! Portos midfield is very good, him Imbula and Danilo are an effective trio.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2015 22:17:21
Imbula came alive the last 25 minutes or so. Showed some very good play. Brahimi as expected roasted Ivanovic a couple of times but I wouldn't bother getting him. Willian showed what he's capable of and should've had an assist on top of that good goal if Pedro could've tapped in Willian's cross (but he didn't even seem to try, it was weird).
Neves looked really good, especially when compared to Fabregas who again disappointed me. I'm glad Mourinho had the guts to drop Matic and maybe even Hazard, but surely Fabregas should be dropped for a game as well. I hope on Saturday Mourinho roles out a midfield of Mikel-RLC with Oscar as the creative player in there. Mikel has looked the part the last few games and we looked solid tonight with him in there, at least more solid than without him.

Agree0 Disagree1

And oh yeah, thanks for the heads up, Ed002. Hope you're well :-)

Jackson: Not a bad assessment of the game although we probably expected at least one player to roast Ivanovic and it happened to be Brahimi. I personally thought we made Porto look better than they are by giving them so much space and time on the ball; for some reason our passing is all over the shop but our thought process has stalled. For a central midfielder Mikel's sideways passing let's him down and like you I think Fabregas has been lucky not to be dropped before and to me it is Matic trying to cover someone he has lost confidence in which has skewered his game. I would play Loftus-Cheek, Matic and Oscar. Still baffled about the Rahman situation for £20m+.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed 002 Is it true that Real Madrid will try and sign Hazard next summer.
Thank you.
Hob 308

{Ed002's Note - They have an interest in Hazard.}

It would be hard to keep him with Madrid lurking but his price tag may drop if he continues not to get to last seasons heights. I'd try to get either Bale or Varane in return or spend the money on Griezmann.

Just a thought. Rumours per newspaper that Chelsea would be interested in Dani Alves but WHY? 32 years of age, no point. However, we all know what Mourinho is like if someone is purchased that he did not want and Alves is a right back, Azi is not going to be dropped, therefore given the s-l-o-w introduction of Rahman, could we be seeing something untoward occurring? Alves as a back-up; what would be the point at that age? Just trying to deflect away from the Costa/Carneiro dance.

I see Carneiro has gone.

Hi Ed, any interest in Wanyama? He could be a good back up for Matic, at least better than Mikel.

{Ed002's Note - Interest of Chelsea is probably speculative as they have been looking for a defensive midfield player with no luck so far. Donsah and Allan were both at one time close to a move whilst it became clear quite quickly that both Dendoncker and Kondogbia were not going to happen. With interest from elsewhere in Romeu - and the club unable to assure him first team football - they agreed to move to Southampton. Spurs do remain keen on Wanyama and may return in January with another offer. Whilst Southampton don't want to sell they may be tempted as the player is not keen on agreeing a new contract. Unless Southampton consider they have sufficient cover, they will likely resist a move in January. From the perspective of the player, it would be better to hold on for the summer when his value would be less and he may well have better choices available to him as he seeks Champions League football. Right now he would be priced out of a move to anywhere other than an English side or an elite and financial well off European side. Previous interest of Arsenal and both of the Manchester clubs has gone for now.}

Hey Eds, is Chelsea interested in Dani Ceballos and Marko Grujic?

{Ed002's Note - Marko Grujić has been looked at because it is a part of the world the club has been making a reasonable effort to try and, to be honest, cherry pick the best youngsters - he is one of a number who are of sustained interest. I would rather not say anything regarding Ceballos at this time.}

Good day Ed, any truth in Chelsea's link to Ruben Neves of Porto. A promising player with a bright future

{Ed002's Note - Neves has been of interest to everyone and his dog since he was 17 or so - Real MAdrid have repeatedly pushed to agreeing a contract leaving him at Porto for a couple of years. Valencia, Barcelona, Chelsea, Lyon and Manchester United would all likely take him but none would have him in the first team right now. As far as I know that is where it stands.}
