Chelsea join race for Jadon Sancho

Chelsea have joined the transfer race with the fellow Premier League giants Manchester United and Liverpool for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

Sancho was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer however, United failed to meet Dortmund’s price.

Die Borussen have decided not to sell the former Manchester City youngster in the January transfer window, meaning that all the potential suitors have to wait until next summer.

Blues tipped to sign Leipzig’s Poulsen

Former Chelsea star Tony Cascarino has urged the Londoners to look at the possibility of signing Leipzig striker Yussuf Poulsen, whom the current Blues striker Timo Werner previously worked with.

The Blues could run out of striker options upfront should Oliver Giroud call it a time at Stamford Bridge. Meanwhile, Werner and Tammy Abraham haven’t been at their best this season.

“It’s a tricky one, because I’ve seen a lot of Werner and when he was at Leipzig he played alongside Poulsen who is a big centre-forward, and he played off the left of him and thrived.”

Havertz rueing Chelsea move

Kai Havertz has been subjected to much criticism lately following his lacklustre start to his first season at Stamford Bridge.

Now, According to SportBILD journalist Hinko, the German ace would be regretting his highly-anticipated transfer from Bayer Leverkusen to the Blues.

“Kai Havertz, even if he doesn’t say it out loud, will have already cursed a hundred times that he moved from Leverkusen to the midfield bores of Chelsea, following the lure of money.”

“Everything went to pieces. No celebrating Christmas, far away from his family, trapped on the island, not even strumming a few contemplative songs on his piano.”

Isco’s Chelsea dream amid Arsenal interest

Real Madrid outcast Isco turns out to be a top target for Arsenal, but the Spaniard had previously admitted his interest in playing at Stamford Bridge.
