Ed002
Is it true we are interested in signing Desire Doue from Rennes?
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Desire Doue (LW/RW/AM) The player is young and talented but rather moody and has decided to leave with him apparently desperate to move to PSG. Borussia Dortmund see him as a replacement for Jadon Sancho, and Manchester IUnited want him to replace Antony. Arsenal, Spurs and RBL have sent scouts with Arsenal declaring an interest. Last summer Chelsea considered him as an AM on the advice of an ex-player and they will look again. Bayer Leverkusen will look to him as a potential Florian Wirtz replacement if needs be - but that will not be until 2025. A wildcard would be PSG or perhaps Bayern Munich. Rennes will seek €75M for him which will end most interest.}

Hi Ed,

With Sesko opting to stay at RB, it looks like we've pivoted to Jhon Duran as our priority. Is this correct? Seems like a gamble given his age and relative inexperience.

As always appreciate all the updates you provide!

{Ed002's Note - Jhon Duran (F) Young left-sided Columbian forward discussed between Chelsea and Chicago Fire when negotiating another transfer. Everton, Benfica, Aston Villa, Liverpool and Manchester United all had scouts watch him in the United States before his move to Villa. Has been scouted by Torino and Celta Vigo. The member of staff who advocated the Chelsea interest originally is still at the club and has proposed that Chelsea should look to him again after being contacted directly by his agent - but the club has far preferred targets. West Ham asked for a loan in January.

Have you watched Duran Ed? What are your opinions on the player If you've seen him?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Ed002 is it true we are looking at maybe bringing Solanke back to Chelsea?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Chelsea.}

Would rather continue with Jackson and rotate others.

Play nkunku.

Read this morning Olise personal terms have been agreed is there any truth in this Ed's

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea are talking to CRystal Palace about the fee and the structure of payments.}

Is there a good chance a deal can be struck in your opinion Ed? Fantastic signing if so . Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Sure.}

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jun 2024 18:59:24
Thanks Ed. Great news. Going to be great having him back at the club if the deal goes through. A foward line of Nkunku, Palmer and Olise sitting behind a striker is up their with the best in Europe.

Hi Ed, with reports today that Santos is being earmarked for a place in the first team squad, could I ask about a couple of other midfielders?

Has a decision been made on where Casadei and Ugochukwu will be, whether it is a loan or permanent move?

Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - There was interest in Cesare Casadei (CM) in January and it is possible he may go as part of an exchange deal for another player - but nothing will be decided soon. Lesley Ugochukwu (DM/CM) missed most of the season with injury but there will be nothing decided yet. After pre-season when the coach has seen the players, a decision will be made.}

Thanks Ed, appreciate all the responses as this page is certainly keeping you busy!

Agree0 0Disagree

Do you expect lavia to stay the season also? That'll leave us with Caicedo, Enzo, Gallagher, Lavia and santos for 2 positions, with the others presumably going out on loan.

Very bloated imo. (Of course Gallagher can play further forward)

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 15:31:12
5 midfielders for 2 positions across potentially 4 competitions is the minimum as no way they'll all stay fit.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 15:39:41
4 players for the 2 positions is a much smarter approach imo, with a young player/ older squad player providing an option.

The problem we have is if Gallagher is played further forward, who misses out? We have chukwuemeka, Nkunku, palmer who need game time also.

I see Gallagher leaving, so I don't think it's a problem we will encounter anyway. We jusy have so many young players who require game time so they're progress.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 22:36:08
Ed002, would the part exchange for casadei be permanent or a loan?

{Ed002's Note - There are few id=f ant temporary. Deals.}

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 10:06:13
Ed002 with us not wanting to pay for osimhen, sesko now staying at leipzig, who will we go for now? Duran who looks very raw, Dovbyk who has a £33m clause and scored a lot of goals would be my choice or maybe Santiago Gimenez? Are these still targets? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Cheslea have several other targets and have priorities.}

I would go for Guirassy as long as he hadn’t already agreed with Dortmund. At a reported 17m buyout clause it’s a no brainer. Reassess the market next summer. Hopefully Jackson improves also.,

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 12:19:23
Guierssy would be my choice too but Ed’s said we have no interest in,
I’d guess with osimhen still priority but maybe PSG more likely to get, I’d agree the options would be dovbyk giminez Duran as well Zola, probably moved on from vhalovic? Who else, Bonniface but his only had the one season so it’s hard to gauge.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 22:55:06
Duran for €50m would be awful business, what has he done in 12 months to treble his pricetag? Would rather pay €30m and get Abraham back.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Jun 2024 20:31:47
Seems the news we sold hotels and carparks and now don't have to sell are
misleading, we do still need to sell for funds before June 30 but have got most of the funds needed but will need to do the same next year.

As ED would say, don't worry about the finances Matt.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 07:34:25
You must worry about the finances because it has multiplier effects on the club. If we breach financial regulations we could end up with dire consequences that affects our club.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 08:30:47
Haha I didn’t even bother asking as that response would of been given, more concerned about being low balled with offers or selling players who we should be keeping,

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 09:49:39
Matt

Have we agreed a low ball figure for anybody as yet?

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 10:30:16
Can we use a different term other than “low ball. ” It always sounds very painful.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 13:21:50
Tom
It's not plural so mot all bad.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 14:14:00
I wouldn’t know bill, but Ed has said in past Gallagher note that Tottenham would try with lower offer as we need to raise funds, albeit we have all but got said funds.
I’d say chalobah £25 is a low fee obviously only reported fee. Dortmund apparently offered well below maatsens RC?

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2024 16:15:36
And as far as I know Matt, no offers jave been accepted as of yet.

Agree0 0Disagree

Hi Ed can I ask what the clubs plan is to do with Kepa and Malang Sarr?

Got a funny feeling them two maybe incredibly challenging to ship on.

{Ed002's Note - Both will leave.}

Hi Ed, hope your well.
Is there still a good chance of Estavo Willan joining. its gone a bit quite.

{Ed002's Note - It is agreed and he will join next summer.}

Thank you ED and for all your other updates you kindly give us.

I know it can be annoying with all the names throwing at you every day.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Jun 2024 13:06:35
Thank you Ed for your confirmation x
Sorry for the questions, so many rumours.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jun 2024 11:02:02
ED02, now Tosin has been signed is that the end of incoming centre backs this window?

{Ed002's Note - I doubt it.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

07 Jun 2024 11:52:39
Badiashile still to leave which leaves us with Colwill, Tosin, Chalobah, Disasi and Fofana. Presumably, one of those leaves (chalobah is as good as gone, even though he's our best cb) which leaves us with 4, one of those being fofana who can't stay fit.

I'd be very surprised to not see another centre back come in and us go into the season with 5 first team centre backs, considering fofanas health.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jun 2024 11:56:32
Thankyou ED02.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jun 2024 14:02:37
Ed002 what cb profile? A left footer than can play cb and lb? Or a rcb? And there are reports we are interested in hincapie who shares same agent as caicedo and paez i belive, any truth? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has no interest in Hincapie.}

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jun 2024 20:49:17
Standard, we also have Gilchrist too.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jun 2024 07:55:21
Ed002 is true we want Aaron Anselmino.

{Ed002's Note - Aaron Anselmino (CB) Braga and Benfica have been regularly scouting Boca Juniors games and together with Milan have identified multiple targets including Anselmino. Interest from Manchester United and Chelsea will likely end with the player being ineligible for a Work Permit in England and wanting to stay Buenos Aires with his family. They could look to sending him to Strasbourg.}
