Chelsea will look to integrate Malang Sarr, Xavier Mbuyamba (who could be loaned out), Ian Maatsen and Conor Gallagher. No decision yet on Billy Gilmour, Levi Colwill or Amando Broja, who may get another loan. The club are watching these players carefully and it looks like Baxter might be the pick of the goalkeers. Chelsea want to add a MF, S and depending on departures one or more CB. There may be some tinkering with the Wing Backs. Everything else is departure dependent. Players that Chelsea have shown some level of interest in:

James Beadle (G) Chelsea want the kiddie form Charlton but there is a complexity.
Sergino Dest (RB/ RWB/ LB) Barcelona need to raise funds and free up wages and will look to Moussa Wague to step in and will let Dest leave in January given they have cover in Alves and plan a summer addition. Roma will likely give up on preferred option Dalot and turn to Dest. Prior interest of Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich has gone and an approach to Chelsea has resulted in a sharp intake of breath over the asking price, but they could be interested if a lower price could be agreed - but that would also spark further interest from Munich. Barcelona would be willing to offer him in part exchange for any of the Chelsea players they are keen on. Monaco offer an option and are happy to include Djibril Sidibe as part of a deal for Dest, however Barcelona's preference for Dest replacement remains Mazraoui. Versatility makes it a possibility.
Theo Hernandez (LWB) Milan are aware that Tuchel tried to take TH to PSG and may well look to take him to Chelsea to replace Alonso, but they intend to offer him a new contract. An option.
Daniel Davies (LWB) Well thought of Wrexham kiddie who has had a trial at Chelsea.
Jules Kounde (CB) Chelsea were planning to look to a deal again in January but priorities will may shift depending on a separate issue and other options are being considered. Sevilla are fearful that a club will simply offer his buy out clause in cash and it would be up to the player. Previously Manchester City and manchester United had considered Kounde but both City are looking elsewhere and United recruited Varane so their needs have likely gone. Don't rule out a Real Madrid or Barcelona offer - but it won't be in cash at the buy out clause. Circumstances are now such that Chelsea will look to striking a deal.
Matthijs de Ligt (CB) Wants to move to Barcelona but it would need to be an exchange type deal. Offered to Chelsea but they have other thoughts and his termination clause and wages if asked in full would kill any chance of a move. Real Madrid interest only works if they will accept multiple players in exchange. Seems unlikely.
Presnel Kimpembe (CB) Chelsea enquired after another player but were told PK might be available at the right price. It will depend on the coach and the price being reasonable.
Alessio Romagnoli (CB) Milan want a new contract but they are at odds with the player and Mino over the package and a termination clause. Could give way to assure other contracts are agreed. He will have options with Barcelona perhaps seeing him as an option to their first choice and a deal involving Firpo is possible. Juventus would take him but would want to offer Bernardeschi in exchange if they cannot get him as a Free Agent - if he is available as a Free Agent he could replace MdL. Real Madrid would like to strike a deal involving Isco for Romagnoli in January. There is a very slim chance of a move to London with Chelsea - but I expect a new contract will be agreed with Milan.
Pau Torres (CB) Villareal are struggling financially and will sell this summer at the right price. Manchester City and Manchester United had him as first choice but interest moved on. Barcelona has a sustained interest but price will likely be an issue and they may look to horse trade some players - but priorities will be elsewhere. Napoli see Torres as a Kalidou Koulibaly replacement but they are an unlikely destination. Bayern Munich have him as a target. Real Madrid wanted Torres to replace Ramos but do not want to get in to an auction - but at the right price they would be favourites to sign him. Has been offered to Chelsea by a third party knowing Kounde was unlikely but it seems very unlikely. Spurs offered a less likely option under Mr Mourinho.
Gleison Bremer (CB) Carlo Ancelotti tried to take him to Napoli and also Everton. He could try again as an affordable option for Real Madrid. Spurs and Milan provide good options as Spurs look to upgrade on the CBs they have and Milan fear losing Alessio Romagnoli as a Free Agent. Again, he is of interest to Inter Milan who fear losing Stefen de Vrij, Milan Skriniar and/ or Alessandro Bastoni in the summer. Previously of interest to Leicester and Liverpool, but both opted for others. Juventus have him on a list of options should they lose de LIgt in the summer but there are certainly a couple ahead of him. Chelsea have a pressing need to add CBs with four out of contract in the summer and could look to him as a cost-effective solution - but a move seems unlikely. Torino will look to a new contract to end thoughts of a move but that has not stopped clubs scouting him as they expect him to be available in the summer as he has so far refused a new contract. Torino do not plan to sell in January.
Wesley Fofana (CB) Has been recommended to Newcastle. Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea have all sent scouts to watch him.
Attila Szalai (CB) There has been much interest from various sides with Leicester, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea and West Ham all scouting the Fenerbahce player. But none have made any offers. Napoli may look to him as a Manolas replacement.
Niklas Sule (CB) Tuchel is keen on the player but would need to convince others at the club. They will look to a new contract else a single payment cash only sale in January. Newcastle provide an option.
Ronald Araujo (CB) Barcelona want to refresh their CBs and are looking for a long-term replacement for Pique and they know that Umtiti is not the solution they had hoped for. This has them looking at Free Agents but there remains a desire for a major buy at CB. They will move Umtiti on and could use Ronald Araujo, as a part exchange option as they look for a solution to their various transfer needs and he is another of the players they could offer to Chelsea as makeweights knowing they have a potential CB problem with four Out of Contract in the summer.
Marquinhos (CB/ RB/ DM) Tuchel provided a list of CB options to Chelsea that he would be interested in signing - and that list included Marquinhos. At the right price and if the player so desires, he will be allowed to leave but he is not top of the list for Chelsea. Real Madrid offer an option as he is a player the coach is keen on, but the club do not have him top of their list. New contract.
Aurelien Tchouameni (DM/ CM) Juventus and Chelsea have all declared an interest in the player and have both held discussions with Monaco. Manchester United could look to him as a Paul Pogba replacement. Borussia Dortmund are interested in upgrading Axel Witsel and have looked at him as have others, such as Liverpool and Manchester City, without declaring an interest. Real Madrid opted for Camavinga and will concentrate on other priorities. Monaco have told clubs that they are not looking to sell. Juve may make an offer in January and would look to including a player in any deal - that could result in an offer from Chelsea and just possibly Real Madrid - who would also look to include a player in any deal. Juve's issue is money which may see them switch their attention to Witsel or Zakaria if Monaco won't accept a player exchange. For Chelsea something can be done.
Gavi (CM) Barcelona will not sell and that has been shared with Manchester City, Chelsea and PSG who enquired. He will get a contract with a Buy Out clause which will make him pretty much untouchable. Still a kiddie.
Ruben Neves (DM/ CM) Wolves would look to get as close to €50M as they can should circumstances dictate Neves is sold, but they certainly don't want to sell and have made clear that he has a long-term contract and there have been no approaches at this time. Mr Mourinho is a huge fan and has tried to take him to three different clubs in the past - and he would, I am sure be interested in taking him to Roma but their focus right now is elsewhere. He has always been seen as an option to replace Matic at Manchester United, but they have other priorities to deal with first and preferred options - although Wolves might see an offer. His agent has been actively offering him around and has spoken with Juventus who are looking to offload players but none that I would expect Wolves to be interested in. The Spurs coach would like him as an upgrade to Sissoko (who has now left) and Ndombele but it is likely both would need to leave as they have added another addition in midfield as well - if Winks were sold an offer is likely. Chelsea have a preference for Tchouameni. Arsenal are likely now out of the picture. Nothing will happen in respect of Chelsea.
Frenkie de Jong (CM/ DM) Tolisso upgrade for Bayern Munich but Barcelona don't want to sell although if a significant offer (perhaps €90M) were made their financial situation would mean they would have to consider it. During discussions between Barcelona and Chelsea, options for a number of players were discussed but Chelsea do not again want protracted negotiations which led nowhere over another player in the summer and they have a preferred option. Manchester City may provide another solution.
Jude Bellingham (CM) Manchester United and Chelsea were keen before he moved to Germany and will be interested again when he is made available for sale - and expect interest from Manchester City and potentially Liverpool as well. Dortmund will not be forced in to selling him next year and will seek a huge fee when he is sold.
Saul Niguez (CM) The player has struggled with the pace of the English game and it is unlikely that Chelsea will take up their option. Barcelona will look to a creative solution.
Franck Kessié (CM) Efforts are being made to secure a new contract, but the issue is over the wages continues with Milan struggling. Could potentially be sold but I expect agreement to be reached eventually else there will be a lot of interest with Juventus looking to meet his demands. Interest of Mr Mourinho at Spurs and now Roma remains. Spurs also want him as an Ndombele replacement but the player remains keen to move to Chelsea to eventually replace Kante - but Chelsea turned down the offer from his agent initially although a proposal is on the table that would suit both clubs and the player. His agent has also approached Manchester United and PSG but both sides would need to move a player on in order to add Kessie - but both are interested. An option may exist with Barcelona considering a deal for Kessie that will involve Umtiti. His agent has also spoken with Liverpool and Leicester who may be interested in agreeing a pre-contract in January but both have preferred targets. I think something could happen with Spurs.
Arsen Zakharyan (RM/ AM) Manchester Citry, Roma, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea, Sevilla and Ajax have all sent scouts but I am not aware of anything going further at this point. Will likely stay where he is.
Christopher Nkunku (AM/ LW/ RW) Manchester City have been told by RBL that the player is not for sale. Chelsea and Real Madrid have watched him and he is on their respect lists of potential wingers as all look to shuffle what they have. Arsenal provide a very much less attractive solution. RBL will resist a sale. Will stay where he is for now.
Leroy Sane (RW) Was first choice Hudson-Odoi or Ziyech replacement but Bayern won't want to sell. Will stay where he is.
Eden Hazard (LW/ RW) Real Madrid have problems one way or another with all of their wingers and there is no guarantee any will be at the club next season. He will be another that Real Madrid listen to offers for and has been offered to several Premier League sides . It is difficult to talk of the timings of transfers but Hazard is, like all of the wingers at Real Madrid and Chelsea, potentially available for a transfer. They have already approached Chelsea suggesting an exchange for Reece James but that was of no interest. Whilst there is some support from someone senior at Chelsea, others are not keen to pay €50M for a 30 year old. I think a move unlikely. Has been offered to Newcastle as well. }
Federico Chiesa (RW/ F) A third party has informed Juventus of possible interest from Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich for next summer. Juventus will not want to sell but if he were to become available you can expect an auction including English sides, probably Chelsea, as well. Much will depend on cash-flow at Juventus next summer whether they buy him and sell on or buy him and keep him. They will value him beyond the means of the likes of Liverpool who could be interested as a Salah replacement. Don't expect him to move. He will sign permanently on a long contract.
Kingsley Coman (LW/ RW) Bayern Munich are open to moving the player on and adding a fresh face if a new contract is not signed. He has already been discussed with Chelsea but they have not made an offer and it is dependent on a departure. Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid are interested but at nothing like the asking price. The player has not ruled out signing a new contract but there may not be a good enough offer coming. The asking price could be beyond what any club will pay. Nagelsmann would like him to stay but his representative sees better options elsewhere. Bayern Munich said €100M plus to the English side who enquired. Liverpool are amongst a number of clubs who have asked after his availability - but unless Mane or Salah leave there is no starting place for him. Bayern Munich say only one side has directly approached them. Not first choice for any of the interested sides and the price is prohibitive. Expect a new contract to be agreed.
Emerson Rodríguez (RW) Efforts are being made to persuade Chelsea or Manchester City to follow up their scouting of the Columbian to make an offer. The issue would be obtaining a Work Permit to play in England which if anything did happen would mean he would intially be shipped out to another City Group club or to a club affiliated with Chelsea. Monaco have also scouted the player.
Deji Sotona (LW) Has found settling in France difficult and several clubs are interested in the former Manchester United youngster. Celtic perhaps offer an appealing solution with a route to first team football. Chelsea have made an approach offering him U23 football initially.
Luis Diaz (LW/ LM) Porto rejected an offer from Spurs in 2020 and Mr Mourinho is thought to be keen on taking him to Roma and moving Justin Kluivert on permanently. Spurs do remain keen. The player has been offered to Chelsea and Everton and has been scouted by Newcastle, Barcelona, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund at the behest of his agent. His agent would like to organise a move to Real Madrid. Probably priced out of a move.
Fabio Carvalho (AM) will be a Free Agent in the summer and has his agents talking to the likes of Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid - all of which would be a big step up from Fulham.
Mohamed-Ali Cho (F/ RW) Clubs have had to tread carefully due to his age and him having an agent but there is a great deal of interest in the ex-Everton youngster. Angers will resist a sale once he is 18 unless a very good deal is put to them. A number of sides including Southampton, Milan, Atletico and Chelsea have been watching him but he may be best served staying in Ligue 1 for a while longer.
Emre Tezgel (S) 16 year old striker attracting the attention of Manchester City, Everton and Chelsea. There is a huge complication which means the clubs need to tread very carefully.
Konstantin Tyukavin (S) Chelsea had an ex-player attend a couple of games to look at Tyukavin and he identified another player as worthy of a second look. It is possible Chelsea could look to an offer.
Victor Osimhen (S) Napoli made it clear to Chelsea who enquired just before the summer transfer window closed that even €100M would not buy the player. Chelsea and Manchester City maintain an interest and Real Madrid could look to him as an option to Haaland. Bayern Munich and PSG have both sent scouts and both will be looking to add strikers next summer.
Lautaro Martinez (S) Inter don't want to sell and long-term admirers Barcelona and Manchester City are looking elsewhere although Barcelona would like to add him in 2022, but significant sales would still be required and they added Aguero and Depay this past summer - although Aguero is no longer involved. Real Madrid are trying to convince the club otherwise and will offer an assortment of players they no longer want in exchange. Atletico Madrid are interested if he becomes available but money would be an issue without a major sale - perhaps Joao Felix. There is support for him from an ex-Chelsea player who is a potential Director of Football at the club but he would be a little down the list of targets Chelsea has as they look to add a second striker. PSG could look to him if they lose Mbappe. Interest of Spurs Spurs will go nowhere as the player would also want Champions League football. I suspect he will sign a new contract and stay.
Ricardo Pepi (S) FC Dallas youngster who has been scouted by Bayern Munich, Juventus, Southampton, Wolfsburg, Werder Bremen and others. Had a trial with Bayern Munich and they may make an offer - and has had trials with a number of other sides. Player wants to move to Chelsea. Manchester United have made a proposal for the player but it is not attractive as it stands. Do not be surprised by an offer from start up St Louis but Wolfsburg may well be the first stop in Europe.
Dusan Vlahovic (S) Fiorentina eventually managed to hang on to the player last summer regardless of the interest of Manchester City and Atletico Madrid and now want a new contract. The player's agent has made it clear to the club that the player needs to make a step up and move on. There is significant interest in the player. Milan are keen on the player as an Ibrahimovic replacement - Spurs have the same view in respect of Kane and Antonio Conte is an admirer of the player. Whilst Paratici is keen he may be scared off by the price and could turn to an alternate solution Spurs have in mind. Dortmund see him as a Haaland replacement but a move seems unlikely. Manchester United have had him watched but, like Roma and Arsenal are an unattractive options and can be discounted; whilst the rising cost of the transfer will remove Atletico Madrid from the equation, and they have a far more economically viable solution in mind. Bayern Munich and Juventus offer attractive options which would see him at the top of the game. Juventus have an advantage as the player is keen to remain in Italy - but the club are being pressed to sign another. Bayern Munich are looking for a long-term successor to Robert Lewandowski and know that their first choice is very unlikely to join them as it stands right now. Chelsea are still a striker short and may put a proposal to Fiorentina but it is difficult to see the move happening. Barcelona may become an option if they lose out on Haaland and, critically, if Fiorentina would accept players as part of a deal. I think it unlikely. PSG cannot be discounted as an Icardi replacement. Inter want the future of Lautaro Martinez resolved else they will also look to him. Manchester City should still not be discounted and he I seen as a very clear option to Harry Kane. The player was happy to stay this season but there will be efforts made in January to agree a transfer, perhaps for the summer. The compelling case for him to stay where he is for this season has proven correct with his value increasing and a wider range of clubs interested. The best advice would be to see what happens in Munich and Turin - and don't rule out a bid from Spurs or Manchester City. Fiorentina will look to €90M or €100M.
Khayon Edwards (S) Youngster who, like so many do nowadays, is demanding guarantees of game time and refusing to sign a contract. Southampton are cherry picking such kids and can offer better guarantees than Chelsea who will give him a roadmap but no guarantees. Scouts from a couple of German clubs have looked at him. Arsenal are very keen to keep him.
Erling Braut Haaland (S) As it stands right now, it will come down to the wishes of the player with Real Madrid sustaining their interest and Bayern Munich offering him the chance to stay in Germany. Dortmund will try and persuade him to sign an extension but cannot match or even come close the salary others can offer. Barcelona would need to make further huge wage savings to make anything possible, but don't rule it out. Real Madrid will make a huge effort to sign both Haaland and Mbappe for next season, although PSG will be making a very significant offer for Mbappe to stay in Paris a year or two more. The Real Madrid plan was to take Mbappe last summer and Haaland this coming summer but right now they are planning for both in the summer. Bayern Munich may look to an early agreement with Borussia Dortmund for Haaland to replace Lewandowski - Dortmund won't be keen but his agent is happy to follow this route to do what is best for the player. Juventus accept their focus is on other positions and players but do have an advantage in meeting the huge wage demands over other clubs - but not the money to buy him without sales. I expect Manchester City, if they can resolve an issue or two that they have and can find a way to make the finances work could look to Haaland. Manchester City had a preferred first choice target as an Aguero replacement, but he probably will not be available now, so their focus may shift to Haaland but only if the overall cost can be significantly reduced. The coach would prefer someone else, and the club would likely support the coach. Mino has spoken with Chelsea and has met with the owner to discuss Haaland, but the financial demands are going to be huge, and are still not fully understood at this time. A further meeting was held to try to understand better what the club would offer for Haaland going forward - although they remain put off by the overall costs and would seek a lower-cost solution. Again, I would not rule out Chelsea adding regardless of having signed Lukaku and they could look to including a player in the deal. Barcelona have discussed options with Mino but committing cash they do not have right now might make it difficult for them and they would need to let go of a couple of highly regarded youngsters to raise funds. PSG want to hold on to Mbappe for a year or two more, so they won't focus on EH and I would rule them out as an option even when that situation changes in the summer. Manchester United really blew their chance to sign to player previously and have wrecked the relationship with his agent which would make it very difficult. The cost of the overall package would rule out Liverpool being able to sign him. Haaland certainly wants a move to Real Madrid and Real Madrid want him - and it seems likely it can happen although it may suit them to wait another year or they will have a wage issue. One thing is for certain, Mino will be doing what is best for his player and not simply chasing money as everyone keeps inferring. He wants to hear the plans the clubs have for themselves going forward and how Haaland can fit in and help with that project - he gets a huge amount of bad press which is largely unwarranted and from people who don't know him. Spain over Germany or England seems the preference for the player right now and staying an additional year or two at Dortmund cannot be ruled out - but the player will want an escape route so a termination clause would be required.
Expectation: Spain over England and Germany. ] Termination Clause: Applies to all countries. Minimum €75M - variable additions for 30 goals and 40 goals, winning the league, winning the CL and gaining entry to the CL could push it to €100M - €90M seems likely. Signing on fees of €60M including player, father and agent fees. Will seek €50M annual wages but that would need to drop to perhaps €30M. Spain over Germany or England seems the preference for the player right now and staying an additional year or two at Dortmund cannot be ruled out - but the player will want an escape route so a termination clause would be required.

Players for which interest has been shown by other sides or the club has made available:

Kepa Arrizabalaga (G) Barcelona asked after him during a discussion about another player and are seeking a ter Stegen replacement. Lazio and Juventus also enquired after his availability. Would likely only be viable on a loan to buy deal or involving a part exchange.
Reece James (RWB) Real Madrid has proposed an exchange of Eden Hazard for Reece James. Will stay at Chelsea and may be used on the right of a back three.
Ian Maatsen (LWB) Another player Barcelona have asked after. Chelsea plan on integrating him with the squad next season but there is little guarantee of game time. May be another Lamptey scenario.
Marcos Alonso (LWB/ LM) Inter Milan are looking for discussions before January whilst Barcelona provide an option.
Emerson (LWB) Lazio have declared an interest and I expect something can be done in advance of the summer.
Cesar Azpilicueta (CB/ RB) Out of contract in the summer. Barcelona offer an option and will seek talks. I think a one year extension may suit the player and the club, but right now that seems unlikely.
Antonio Rudiger (CB) declared interest from Juventus, PSG, Real Madrid, Roma and Barcelona - these sides will push for a January pre-contract agreement. Bayern Munich may look to buy in January if Rudiger does not sign a new contract as they have a pressing need and have spoken with his agent to explore options but they ideally want a younger addition. Juventus has a preferred option and would be unlikely to look any further unless there is a significant change - and I suspect they will have more than their preferred option ahead of him. Barcelona also have a preferred option and the new coach will no doubt have his own ideas. PSG is after a young CB and unless they sell Marquinhos they would likely not have any interest in Rudiger - and then he would not be top of the list. Real Madrid are a more interesting option as they have sustained interest and the need to add a starting CB. They have identified several but know that a couple are too expensive so a Rudiger pre-contract might be something they look to. Chelsea want him to sign a new contract and that remains the plan right now but the player is pricing himself out of an agreement with Chelsea and Real Madrid may well be the most attractive option.
Andreas Christensen (CB) Out of contract in the summer with Chelsea looking to agree a new deal. Again a player Barcelona are interested in and again a player Juventus and Milan are interested in. I suspect he will leave.
Thiago Silva (CB) Fluminense are keen. Free Agent. Chelsea will offer one more year and I expect he will agree it.
Ethan Ampadu (CB/ DM) Although he continues to be successful on loan it is difficult to see where he would fit in at Chelsea in the longer term.
Malang Sarr (CB) St Etienne, Napoli, Milan and Inter Milan have asked about his availability with inter pressing for a loan with an option to buy. Chelsea are willing to let the player talk with clubs over a January loan but will want to integrate him with the first team squad fully next season - but if others sign new contracts and additions are made, it will be hard to see him getting much opportunity. Torino are keen on him as a Bremer replacement. Clubs are pushing Chelsea already over loan moves for several players in January.
Ngolo Kante (DM) Inter wanted a package deal for Kante, Emerson and Giroud last summer but wanted include a player in the deal (Chelsea had no interest in either player offered) and if Inter do not need to put too much cash up front - another solution would need to be found. PSG may provide an option and the interest of Real Madrid remains. Last summer I suggested he will stay - 2022 I am not so sure.
Jorginho (DM/ CM) with Chelsea looking to add Tchouameni, Juventus could turn to Jorginho although they have a preferred option.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek (CM) No decision yet but chances in the first team will be relatively slim. Roma may look to a loan to buy deal.
Ben Elliott (CM) Brighton, Brentford and Southampton have a declared interest in taking him as a Free Agent in the summer. }
Ross Barkley (AM/ CM) will be available for sale. Newcastle offered an option if they could not sign Willock. The thought is that Leeds, West Ham or Everton may offer a loan option. Burnley may offer a loan with an option to buy. Knuckle-dragging bonehead Chelsea want shot of.
Hakim Ziyech (RW) The coach is open to him leaving in the summer - but not January. Milan and Barcelona have enquired with Barcelona proposing a player exchange. Borussia Dortmund offer an attractive solution. If HZ wants to move, the club would not stand in his way although it leaves a problem on the right with thoughts aleady about a possible replacement for both HZ and CHO. Borussia Dortmund have enquired after a loan. I think a summer sale is most likely and Dortmund offer a good solution.
Callum Hudson-Odoi (RW/ LW) Chelsea are more than happy to move him on but the interest of Spurs, RBS, PSG and Bayern Munich has gone. Borussia Dortmund asked Chelsea about his availability last summer - but they did that as he was on a very long-list of potential Jadon Sancho replacements - that interest has returned but they have preferred options, not least two other Chelsea players. Lazio are keen to take him in the summer and that might suit everybody. Leicester and Atalanta want him on loan - Chelsea would prefer to sell and Lazio offer a good solution.
Kenedy (LW/ LWB) Flamengo want to keep him but funds are an issue and they would need to do something creative. Shakhtar Donetsk want to add him to their huge Brazilian contingent.
Christian Pulisic (W) Borussia Dortmund were open to taking the player back, and like the other wingers at Chelsea, the club may be interested to hear proposals. Borussia Dortmund were not open to discussions regarding part exchanges and because of that their interest in Pulisic may have waned. Barcelona have expressed an interest but would look for an exchange - but not of Gavi. Expect him to stay.
Timo Werner (F/ LW) Bayern Munich will be open to discussing the player with Chelsea and will be open to a possible part exchange. Borussia Dortmund are keen to add Werner and Chelsea are open to seeing if he could be used as part of another deal with them. Juventus has declared an interest during a recent meeting with Chelsea as they fear the loss of Dejan Kulusevski. Barcelona and Atletico have enquired after his availability.

Thanks ed002 for the update. A thorough detailed one as promised. Interesting read on strikers which is a bit of cherry pickle at this time. I wish club finds a solution for getting vlahovic. That guy is a sure shot superstar in making. Haaland sounds too expensive and may not work out due to financials.

{Ed002's Note - It won't be Chelsea.}

Thank you Ed002 - a random one not mentioned but do you know if the club expect Harvey Vale to sign a new deal?

Have an amazing Christmas.

{Ed002's Note - He only signed a contract a few months ago - it won't be a priority right now.}

24 Dec 2021 19:49:34
