After signing Lille sensation Eden Hazard for £32million earlier this week, the Blues have now turned their attentions to his international team-mate. 

Dembele is set to enter the last year of his contract at Fulham, and has rejected the offer by manager Martin Jol to extend his stay at Craven Cottage. 

Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham are all monitoring the situation, but according to The Sun, Chelsea are hopeful of securing his signature. 

Fulham are desperate to keep hold of £10million-rated Dembele with the prospect of losing stars Clint Dempsey and Andy Johnson a real possibility during the close-season.

With the 28-year-old under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2016, it would have taken an offer close to £23 million to force the deal happen.

Real Madrid have stopped trying to secure Ivanovic’s services as it will be both complicated and expensive, so have decided to look at other options.

Reports in Italy have suggested Napoli are also keen on the former Lokomotiv Moscow star, but they are unlikely to go for it due to  Chelsea’s valuation.

 

Was Torres’s season so bad?

Lot’s of stuff have been said about Fernando Torres this season, he is finished, he isn’t good anymore, he should retire, he isn’t the players he used to be, and lot’s of other things. And that’s right, he isn’t the player he used to be. He changed. He understood he can’t play the same way he did because of technical problems since his injury, so he adapted a new style of play! Which I think is brilliant! When a player understands he isn’t the same player and can change completely – he has something many other players should have!

Torres became from a player that scores goals and gets all the glory to a player who does lot’s of hard work that not many people notice. He had 12 assists this year which is a lot for a striker, but nobody noticed him. Too bad. He also scored 12 goals which of course isn’t enough, but for one of the worst seasons in his career, scoring 12 goals and making 12 assists isn’t too bad!

So that’s all I wanted to say, hope you enjoyed reading! Goodbye!

Are Chelsea Hungry for Another big – name striker?

First of all thanks a lot to unano123 who wrote this article as a guest writer for as! thanks mate! 

Recently, Chelsea’s striker Didier Drogba announced he won’t renew his contract in Chelsea after this season (2011\2012).  After winning with Chelsea the Champion’s League the sad moment came and Drogba left Chelsea.  He had it all, strength, size, shots and speed.  It’s a real pity he left Chelsea.  But we are not here to talk about Drogba, we are here to answer the question, do Chelsea need a new striker or is Chelsea’s current arsenal enough?  Well, I’m here to answer that question.

Well, let’s look at  Chelsea’s current situation.  Sturridge, Torres and Lukaku.  Torres and Sturridge provide the dribbling, the agility and the support, but they are no Drogba.  If you ask me, Lukaku is the perfect replacement to the fresh hole in Chelsea’s squad.

Lukaku was born in Antwerp Belgium.  He played in Aderlecht’s adult team and demonstrated his skill again and again and again.  In 2011 Chelsea bought the young star and paid and amazing sum of 18 million Pounds!! So much money and he had only 12 appearances in Chelsea.

Lukaku is only 19 years old but he is a star and probably will grow to be an even bigger star.  Being 1.91 meters he is a perfect replacement instead of Drogba.  Lukaku is known for his spins and shots, tricks and agility.

If you ask me, the combination of Torres’s dribbling and Lukaku’s skills, Chelsea will have one of the best strikers combinations in the world.  And believe me, if Chelsea doesn’t use him, you can say that 18 million went down the drain.

So, did I answer the question? Yes I did.  Chelsea’s current arsenal is definitely enough.  Do Chelsea need to buy a new striker? No!!! Excellent Lukaku Romelu has what it needs, he is young, strong, fast and has the most amazing shots, he is Drogba’s heir chosen by destiny. When Chelsea will realize the asset it has Lukaku will be in the opening squad in no time.

Lampard out for England campaign

England midfielder Frank Lampard injured his thigh in training on Wednesday, dealing another potential setback to Roy Hodgson’s plans less than two weeks before the start of the European Championship. Lamps will have to miss his possibly last big – tournament for England at his long career.

England Manager Roy Hodgson said: “It’s a huge blow for the team, especially coming after the loss of another senior player in Gareth Barry. The fact that the doctor cannot guarantee Frank could take part in any of the group matches means we have to replace him in the central midfield area.

let’s hope he will get better as soon as possible.
