Transfer Balls: Chelsea are in for Raheem Sterling, Robert Green, Koke and seven more
Transfer Balls: a look at players linked to Chelsea FC in today’s tabloids.
The Daily Mirror says Jose Mourinho is considering buying Liverpool’s Rickie Lambert. The paper adds that Spurs’ Emmanual Adebayor is also at the “top” of Jose’s list.
Facts to support the stories: zero. But the Mirror says Lambert was watched as Liverpool took on QPR. So, presumably, the Chelsea scout was also watching every other player on show, particularly QPR’s Charlie Austin or the much-coveted Raheem Sterling?
The Daily Mail says Mourinho wants Roman Abramovich to “bankroll another summer trasnfger spree”. The Mail says Chelsea are looking to sign QPR’s Robert Green (see above). Also, Oscar is looking to leave the club so Chelsea will consider moving for Raheem Sterling. Other players namechecked in the Mail’s story are:
Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane
Atletico Marid’s Antoine Griezmann
Shakhtar Donetsk’s Douglas Costa
The Daily Express says Chelsea are in talks to sigs Atletico Madris’s Spain midfielder Koke for £30m. The Blues also want Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi and West Ham United’s Aaron Cresswell.
That’s just 10 new players, then.
