At the start of the upcoming transfer window, Chelsea hopes to secure three players, if possible, including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Despite the fact that Chelsea are planning to pursue Everton’s Anthony Gordon, they are also continuing their pursuit of Leicester’s Wesley Fofana.
Chelsea came out on top of their opening-round meeting with Everton with a victory, but their 3-0 loss at Leeds United at the weekend demonstrated they’re in desperate need of in-depth reinforcements.
- Chelsea is optimistic about signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
- Sportsmail reported on Friday that the Blues were enthusiastic about achieving their objective.
- Barcelona is seeking £20 million for the former Arsenal striker, who is 33 years old.
- Thomas Tuchel hoped to use Marcos Alonso as a trade makeweight.
Initially loaning Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan and selling Timo Werner to RB Leipzig were Chelsea’s first steps without a senior, universally trusted forward. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has taken the place of Lukaku and Werner, and he is now the team’s top choice to play infield.
Aubameyang, 33, has been making progress in designing a 20 million transfer that would reunite him with his former boss at Borussia Dortmund, Tuchel.
Aubameyang’s personal terms offer his players little obstacle to success. Aubameyang scored 79 goals in 95 games for Germany under Tuchel.
Chelsea are attempting to reach an agreement with Everton to acquire Gordon, who is interested in transferring to Stamford Bridge. Four offers to Gordon have been rejected by Chelsea, and the largest one is estimated to be 45 million plus an additional 5 million added to it. Everton requires around 50 million pounds for England.
Leicester City have reportedly rejected Chelsea’s initial bids of 60 million pounds and 65 million pounds for the French central defender Aaron Fofana. It is expected that a higher offer will be made.
Leicester’s initial objection to selling the club has now been overcome, although the group is still looking to raise a new record amount of nearly 80 million for an arena defender.
Fofana VIP has already come to an agreement with Chelsea, ending their strained negotiations. When Leicester lost to Southampton by a score of 2-1 over the weekend, it looked like the team would be sent down to the second division of the Premier League.
Chelsea have received six recent transfer signings worth more than 190 million and currently hold approximately 250 million in transfers for the sale of Emerson for 25 million and loan payments for Lukaku and Malang Samr.
Emerson Palmieri will be getting an additional 15 million at West Ham, while Hakim Ziyech is also being tracked by his former club Ajax as a substitute for Manchester United’s proposed Brazilian wing, Antony.
Favorable Chelsea players include Christian Pulisic, Callum Huson-Odoi, Trevor Chalobah, Conor Gallagher, Armando Broja, Billy Gilmour, and Ethan Ampadu.
