Chelsea forward wanted by La Liga giants on loan deal

By Elliott Cuff Atlético Madrid are interested in signing Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud on a season-long loan, with the option to buy, according to reports. The World Cup winning forward only joined the Blues in January, but is apparently wanted by the Spanish side. That is according to GFFN, who cite Gianluca di Marzio, who claims that Chelsea would consider doing a deal if the loan move came with an obligation to buy, rather than an option. New boss Maurizio Sarri has yet to make his mark on his new club, except for the sole signing of Jorginho, and it isn’t yet clear whether he sees the Frenchman as a big part of his plans Despite his recent switch, the 31-year old scored five times in 18 appearances for the Blues last season.

Spanish giants launch another bid for Chelsea wideman

By Elliott Cuff Barcelona have bid a third time for Chelsea winger Willian, according to Sky Sports News. The Catalan giants are believed to have offered around £55million for the Brazil international, who is a key target for the club this summer. Twitter: BREAKING: Sky sources – @FCBarcelona make third bid in excess of £55m for @ChelseaFC winger Willian #SSN https://t.co/maor22ka8j (@SkySportsNews) Having reportedly expressed a desire to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, it was reported earlier today that the 29-year old was closing in on a move to the Nou Camp. While concerns had been raised about Barcelona’s inability to sign any more non-EU players, Philippe Coutinho, who is believed to have been crucial in convincing Willian of a move, is close to securing a Portuguese passport in order to free up a spot. Chelsea are reportedly ready to sell the player, who they signed from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala for £30million in 2013, providing their asking price is met.

Chelsea include buy-back clause in their proposed sale of midfielder

By Luke Osman Chelsea have reportedly included a buy-back clause in Sassuolo’s deal to sign Jeremie Boga. The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Championship club Birmingham City and it seems following his return, he has been deemed as surplus to Chelsea’s requirements. Boga is close to joining Sassuolo in a permanent deal, according to reports, but according to claims from French news outlet Foot Mercato, Chelsea do appear to still regard the Ivorian as a young player with potential. It’s claimed that despite offloading Boga on a permanent basis, a buy-back clause has been included in Sassuolo’s purchase of the player. Boga has been sent out on loan three times during his stint at Chelsea, impressing when called upon at Ligue 1 side Rennes, along with Granada and Birmingham most recently. Chelsea will evidently be closely monitoring Boga’s progress at Sassuolo, with the promising midfielder now looking ahead to the next chapter of his professional career in Italy.
