Chelsea fans make transfer demand after what Tammy Abraham did in training ahead of Liverpool

Some Chelsea fans have had a somewhat interesting response to the sight of Tammy Abraham in training ahead of the Premier League clash with Liverpool. The 23-year-old is in contention to return to the Blues matchday squad for Thursday night's trip to Merseyside. This is after Abraham was a surprise omission from Thomas Tuchel's squad for the goalless draw at home to Manchester United on Sunday - a decision that was not injury-related. "No, he is not struggling. We have a strong squad with only Thiago Silva injured," Tuchel said following the game. "We had Olivier [Giroud] starting, we had Kai [Havertz] also on the bench who can play number nine.

Chelsea handed Erling Haaland transfer boost as Eden Hazard slammed over Real Madrid move

Here are your Chelsea morning headlines for Thursday, February 25. Hazard slammed by Poyet Gus Poyet has slammed Eden Hazard over his performances for Real Madrid since his big-money move to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2019. Hazard moved to the Spanish capital in the summer of 2019 but has struggled to make an impact amid injuries and a decline in form, with the Belgium international playing only 47 of a possible 82 matches. "It hurts me a lot," Poyet, who signed for Chelsea in 1997 from La Liga side Real Zaragoza, told Marca. "The year Cristiano Ronaldo left was the ideal time to replace him, he had had a great season with Chelsea. "When Hazard arrived in Madrid, he suddenly looked older. I don't think the style of play is the problem, neither is the mentality, it's physically. "He has ...

Mikel Arteta and Edu already have a plan to stop Chelsea from signing Erling Haaland

Erling Braut Haaland is one of world football's most highly rated prospects at the moment. The Borussia Dortmund striker scored twice against Sevilla in the Champions League this week to take his goal haul for the season to an incredible 25 from just 24 matches and looks set to battle it out with Kylian Mbappe for the Balon D'Or over the next decade. Unsurprisingly there are plenty of clubs after the 20-year-old's signature, with Chelsea rumoured to be one of the favourites. However their local rivals Arsenal may have found a way to ensure that does not happen.

The 11 transfers decisions Chelsea could make to pull off Erling Haaland deal

Chelsea's bid to land Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland could lead them to sell a whole host of players this summer. The Blues have been strongly linked with the Norwegian striker who is reportedly being tracked by a number of clubs, including Real Madrid and Manchester United. Haaland will be available for £68million in the summer of 2022, but with his release clause not coming into play until then, he would likely cost more than £100million this summer having only been at Dortmund since last year. That fee could make the transfer hard to pull off for many clubs, even a club the size of Real Madrid, who have had financial issues, like many clubs across the globe, on the back of the coronavirus pandemic. But according to reports in Spain, Los Blancos have a plan involving striker Lu...

Haaland ‘more of a killer’ in the box than Mbappe, says Dortmund full-back Meunier

Both players are considered to be among the best in the world, but a man who has played with both feels their styles are too different to compare Erling Haaland is “much more of a killer” inside the box than Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe, claims Borussia Dortmund's Thomas Meunier, with the right-back having played with both strikers. Both Haaland and Mbappe have established themselves as two of the most lethal frontmen in world football, seemingly scoring at will and attracting the attention of Europe's biggest clubs in the process. Playing in a similar position and with only two years between them, many have wondered which of the forwards would represent the better value for money. For Meunier, however, their styles are simply too different to compare.Editors' Picks What are t...

Thomas Tuchel’s dream Chelsea line-up if Marina Granovskaia completes Bundesliga raid

Chelsea have made significant strides since Thomas Tuchel's appointment, standing undefeated for four matches and winning their last three in a row. That has seen the Blues rekindle their push for a top-four finish and the Champions League football that comes with it, takin advantage of Liverpool's struggles. Tuchel has sparked life back into a disjointed Chelsea side, rejuvenating the team that he inherited from Frank Lampard and putting his own spin on things tactically. Come the end of the season and the summer transfer window, the former Paris Saint-Germain boss will want to complete moves in the market to get his first-choice line-up to fill his criteria.

Chelsea fans name dream transfer deadline day signing as Diego Costa tipped to make shock return

Transfer deadline day is officially upon us and clubs right across England will be busy trying to wrap up those last-minute deals. Whilst several Premier League sides will be keen to add one or two new faces to their squads before tonight's 11pm deadline, Chelsea are unlikely to be one of them. After splashing out more than £220million on new talent last summer, the Blues, regardless of managerial changes, were always going to be quiet this month, with no new arrivals ever expected, despite continuous rumours, certainly concerning Declan Rice's future. Despite Thomas Tuchel's arrival last week, following the dismissal of Frank Lampard, Chelsea's stance has not changed, with the club not in the market for any new recruits ahead of tonight's deadline.

Latest Chelsea transfer rumours: Upamecano warning, Haaland decision, duo in contract talks

The end of the 2021 January transfer window is not likely to throw up any late surprises as far as Chelsea are concerned. After spending north of £220million during last summer's window, this month was always destined to be a quiet period, certainly in terms of incomings, at Stamford Bridge, regardless of league position and managerial changes. In truth, it is highly unlikely, despite Thomas Tuchel's arrival earlier this week, that Chelsea will add any new faces to the squad before the window closes on Monday evening. However, there could prove to be a departure or two, with the short-term future of midfielder Billy Gilmour yet to be decided on.
