There are a few players in the summer transfer market that are on everyone’s list, but which ones are coming to Chelsea? We’ll talk about Conor Gallagher, Billy Gilmour, Jules Kunde, and Thomas Party. But which players are on our radar for next season? We may be seeing some of these players before the summer transfer window opens.
There are a lot of questions surrounding Gallagher’s future, but there is little doubt that the Irish striker is a great signing for Chelsea. Although the club may need an experienced midfielder, Gallagher’s talent could be enough to keep the Blues in the Premier League. The academy product has been deemed the best option to replace the injury-prone N’Golo Kante.
Despite reports that he is on the verge of leaving Stamford Bridge, Billy Gilmour is set to stay at the club for another season. After a disappointing loan spell at Norwich City, the 20-year-old has returned to Stamford Bridge and is currently in pre-season talks with Thomas Tuchel. The deal is likely to last until the summer of 2024, and Chelsea will likely opt to extend the deal by a year.
A transfer for Sevilla defender Jules Kunde is close to completion. The deal is understood to be worth EUR55 million, PS46 million plus a EUR5m bonus. While Chelsea fans are still waiting to hear official confirmation, there has been a lot of excitement around the player. Sevilla boss Frank Leboeuf has been raving about the young Frenchman’s quality. The club is keen to sign a proven first-team player who is a versatile attacking player.
Thomas Party is a Ghanaian midfielder who was on Arsenal’s books during the summer. He was forced to miss the first half of the friendly with Chelsea due to an ankle injury after a challenge from Ruben Loftus-Cheek. His future was in doubt after the Arsenal player was replaced by Granit Xhaka. Party, 25, received treatment at the stadium before he was taken off. Party also fell to the ground again shortly before he was substituted. A statement from Arsenal’s media channel suggested that Party had suffered ankle ligament damage.
The transfer of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly to Chelsea is being mooted by various reports. The Senegalese has been a standout defender in the top flight of Italy and is one of Thomas Tuchel’s transfer targets. While Manchester United and Liverpool have both shown an interest in signing the Senegalese, Chelsea is said to have a much bigger need for a center-back.
According to reports in Manchester, Raheem Sterling is nearing a decision over his future. With the World Cup just around the corner, Sterling will likely be unsure of his future at the club he has called home for the past seven seasons. If he does join Chelsea, though, the move would be a welcome one for the Premier League’s leading scorer. While Sterling has spoken with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola about a possible move, a move to Chelsea would give Sterling a fresh start and the chance to impress at a new club.
Kevin de Bruyne
It’s been rumored for several years that Belgium midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is coming back to Chelsea next season. The Belgian played for Manchester City for two seasons and has also represented his country at the international level. De Bruyne is widely considered the best player of his generation and has earned the title of the world’s best footballer. He has been praised for his incredible skill and versatility.
Mavropanos, 24, has just completed a move to the Emirates Stadium, and it is expected he will be available for a fee of around PS2 million. He has impressed on both ends in his first entire season in the Greek Super League. Last season he scored four goals in 14 appearances for PAS Giannina and has impressed so far this season, scoring two goals and assisting a further three.
Rumors are circulating in the English press that the Wolves midfielder is set to join Chelsea next season, but the player is adamant he will stay in England. While he is a key part of Wolves’ attacking line, Jimenez has also propelled the team to Europa League and top-four finishes in the Premier League. Jimenez was rejected by Atletico Madrid earlier in his career, but now he’s ready to stay in England and continue playing a key role for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
The speculation that Alonso is leaving Chelsea is gaining momentum as the transfer window nears its end. Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has been linked with a summer move to Barcelona, but reports are claiming that he is in advanced talks with the Catalan club over personal terms. Chelsea is about to embark on a major rebuild this summer, so they could do without the Spaniard. Chelsea director of football Fabrizio Romano has claimed that the club is aware of Alonso’s desire to leave, but a deal is not yet in place.
