8 goals in 14 games, this player could be the best solution to Chelsea’s problem

Maurizio Sarri

Former Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is reportedly set to partway with Chelsea after enduring a nightmarish spell at Stamford Bridge.

In his first season with the West London club, Morata scored just 11 goals. This season hasn’t fared better for the Spaniard who has scored just five goals from 14 League games.

According to Calciomercato, the 26-year-old striker is being tracked by Serie A side AC Milan and they are leading the race for his signature.

The Italian media outlet also revealed that Juventus are equally looking to re-sign the player who spent two seasons with them.

If the Blues must compete with Manchester City and Liverpool for this season’s Premier League title, Maurizio Sarri must have a proven goalscorer in the mould of Robert Lewandowski, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Aguero or any striker who could score 20 goals per season.

Lewandowski is not ready to dump Bayern Munich neither is Messi willing to dump Barcelona. Ronaldo recently joined Juventus hence, a move for the Portuguese superstar is out of proportion.

A move for City’s star striker Sergio Aguero is never going to happen in January as the Argentine is enjoying life at Etihad stadium.

Therefore, the Blues should move for Napoli star Arkadiusz Milik as Morata’s replacement.

The 24-year-old is a proven scorer but his stay at Napoli during Maurizio Sarri’s reign wasn’t a great one, no thanks to two ACL injuries which kept him out of action for most of his days under Sarri.

Having returned back to full fitness, the former Ajax striker has found the back of the net eight times with one assist.

Milik is a quick striker who easily get past his markers. He also gets into good goalscoring positions waiting for the ball from his teammates.

Milik won’t be short of services at Stamford Bridge as Eden Hazard will surely provide much of the ball for him to put into the net.

Milik is equally good aerially which means the Blues will have better opportunities to score from corner kicks and other set-pieces if they eventually capture his signature.

Milik won’t spend much time getting used to Sarri’s playing pattern as he already worked with the Italian manager.

A move for the Poland international might not be the high-profile move Chelsea fans are waiting for, but it is certain the Blues will greatly benefit from it.

Bristol City Eyeing Permanent Transfer For 26-Year-Old Chelsea Loanee

English Championship club Bristol City are plotting a permanent deal for Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas this summer according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.

Tomas Kalas spent last season on loan at Bristol City whom he joined from Chelsea during last summer’s transfer window.

The Robins are keen to make his loan move to the club permanent this summer.

Kalas was in superb form for Bristol City but he was unable to propel them to the Championship playoffs as the Robins narrowly missed out on the playoff cut on the final day of the regular season.

The 26-year-old is the longest serving player at Chelsea after the Blues paid Czech side Sigma Olomouc £5.2m to secure his transfer in 2010.

Tomas Kalas has previously had loan spells at clubs like Middlesboro and Fulham whom he helped to secure promotion to the Premier League during the 2017/18 season.

He was not retained by Fulham for the Premier League season which turned out to be a poor one for the Cottagers.

Fulham will play their football in the English Championship next season after they suffered relegation from the top flight of English football for the first time.

The Cottagers finished second from bottom at the end of the latest Premier League season.

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a summer move for Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks.

This is according to the publication from the Daily Mirror which claimed that the Red Devils are targeting a move for the Welsh international player.

It was revealed that Manchester United will reinvest the proposed transfer fee from Inter Milan for Romelu Lukaku in the signing of David Brooks.

Former Chelsea striker Lukaku is said to be closing in on a big money move to Italian Serie A with Inter Milan after agreeing on weekly wages of around £180,000 ahead of a possible £75m move to the San Siro.

Romelu Lukaku became the top transfer target for Inter Milan following the appointment of former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte who was returning to the dugout for the first time since his exit from West London giants Chelsea.

The aforementioned publication revealed that Manchester United want to reinvest the majority of the money for Lukaku on David Brooks who shone for Bournemouth last season.

It was his first season in the Premier League following his move from Sheffield United last summer.

The Welsh international has also been linked with a move to Champions League finalists Tottenham Hotspur in the past weeks.

The former Chelsea left-back has previously been linked with Premier League champions Manchester City but he has new suitors besides the English top flight.

According to the specific publication from the stables of the Daily Mail, Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid and Italian Serie A club Inter Milan are keen on a summer move for Ryan Bertrand.

The 29-year-old has two years left on his current deal with the Saints and the Premier League club is interested in the sale of Ryan Bertrand.

Europa League winners Chelsea will have to overturn their transfer ban if they want to sign new players during this summer’s transfer window.

The West London giants are battling with a two-window transfer ban imposed on them by world football’s governing body FIFA at the moment after they were found culpable in the signing of players under the age of 18.

Chelsea have already had an appeal rejected by the Appeal Committee of FIFA thus prompting the Premier League giants to submit an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

The Blues lost their star player Eden Hazard to Spanish giants Real Madrid earlier this summer in a deal reported to be around €100m but they are unable to sign a replacement for him due to the transfer ban.

Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho is on the list of possible replacements for Eden Hazard but any move to Stamford Bridge will be dependent on the transfer ban.

Philippe Coutinho is keen to leave Barcelona this summer after a disappointing 18 months at the Nou Camp and the Catalans would be willing to accept at least €100m.

Chelsea Starting XI (4-3-3): Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger, Emerson Palmieri; N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek; Philippe Coutinho, Olivier Giroud, Christian Pulisic

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has reportedly set his sights on leaving the West London giants this summer on the back of the exit of Maurizio Sarri.

This is according to the publication from the Daily Mirror which revealed that the Italian international star is worried about his future at Chelsea.

Maurizio Sarri was the major reason Jorginho snubbed Premier League champions Manchester City last summer in favor of a £57m transfer to Chelsea.

Jorginho already had an agreement with Manchester City before Sarri convinced him to join Chelsea only for the Italian tactician to exit the club after one season.

Just like Jorginho, Sarri left Napoli for Chelsea last summer but he has returned to Italy after just one season.

The 60-year-old has put pen to paper on a three-year deal as the new Juventus manager and Jorginho is keen to follow him.

The Daily Mirror revealed that Jorginho is ready to quit Chelsea for Juventus in a £50m deal.

Jorginho and Sarri were verbally abused by a lot of Chelsea players after the former featured prominently at the base of the Chelsea midfield instead of N’golo Kante.

In the end, they had the last laugh after Chelsea ended the season with the Europa League title.

Europa League champions Chelsea have set a deadline for the appointment of Derby County manager Frank Lampard as their new manager according to a publication from the stables of the London Evening Standard.

French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) are eyeing a move for AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnaruma this summer according to recent reports from the British media.

PSG are in the market for a new goalkeeper following the exit of veteran Italian shot stopper Gianluigi Buffon this summer.

The specific report from The Sun revealed that PSG want to replace the veteran Italian goalkeeper with a younger goalkeeper, Gianluigi Donnaruma.

The AC Milan goalkeeper was linked with a move to Chelsea last summer before the Blues signed Spanish shot stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga in a world-record deal for a goalkeeper.

Chelsea signed Kepa for £71m from Spanish La Liga side Athletic Bilbao last summer following the exit of Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid.

The aforementioned publication also said that PSG want to pursue a deal for Gianluigi Donnaruma instead of Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea due to the fact that he’s eight years younger than the Red Devils player.
