Chelsea247 roundup latest Chelsea news around the club today, Below are the latest Chelsea news. Seven Willian replacements ahead of his move away from Stamford Bridge in summer.
The future of Willian already seemed up in the air before the coronavirus halted football across the globe. The Brazilian has enjoyed seven years in west London, but that hasn’t stopped him being linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge when the transfer window reopens.
Liverpool are the latest team to reportedly enter talks with the Brazilian, whose Chelsea contract expires at the end of June. If the former Shakhtar Donetsk forward does leave the club in the summer, then it could facilitate new faces. After seven years in west London, Willian’s time at Chelsea may finally come to an end this summer as he continues to be linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.
Below are some of the players they could be looking at to fill that void.
Jadon Sancho, Ousmane Dembele, Adama Traore, Emiliano Buendia, Ferran Torres.
Meanwhile, Italian giants Juventus are keen on signing Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri and will offer Alex Sandro as part of the deal, according to reports.
Emerson joined the Blues from Roma and has repeatedly been linked with a return to Serie A. Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is eager to sign another left-back and has reportedly set his sights on Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell. Now, Tuttosport claim Juventus are confident of securing Emerson, with Chelsea quoting Juventus £22m for the player.
The Old Lady is now keen to explore the option of a swap deal, and are considering Alex Sandro as the possible candidate. Sandro has previously been linked with moves to Manchester United and Chelsea and was said to be a target for former Blues boss Antonio Conte. Juventus value the Brazilian at a higher price than Emerson, which may complicate matters somewhat. Emerson has vehemently denied he wants to leave Chelsea amid claims of a falling out with Lampard.
