  1. Could bring the price down being that no other clubs have been reported to be involved.
  2. Hakimi has a heck of a left foot, considering he’s right footed. I think we can spell Chilwell on the left on occasion. Wouldnt be surprised if he was moved further up the pitch if Tuchel employs a back 4. This guy is a hell of a player, and like @ForeverCarefree mentioned, the opportunity has presented itself and Chelsea seems to be jumping on it.
  3. The Athletic is reporting our interest in Hakimi. It was previously reported that PSG had agreed to terms with him, however, if we could get him I would love to see him in Tuchel’s side. Can play RWB or further up the pitch if we move to a back 4.
  4. We would get at least £50m for Pulisic alone but I doubt he’s going anywhere. £100m for the lot you listed would be very, very low.

    New CB?

    If we bring in a bigger name CB, I hope it’s Varane. If we bring in a bit younger option that has the potential to be a top player in a couple years time, either Kounde or Lacroix could be good. If Thiago has resigned, combined with the reborn top player of Rüdiger, I think we are ok at CB. Bring 2 of the following in to compete for a spot: Sarr, Guehi, or Tomori (think Milan buy him though). Probably sell Zouma (I’ll sadly miss Happy!). The counter argument to this thought is this: are we better off bringing in a top CB or a high potential CB so that we can better manage Thiago’s minutes
  6. I definitely could now see that happening. In the 2 days since my post, there’s been some reporting that we’ll be after both (Matt Law specifically). If so, I think it makes our team stronger, no question.
  7. I still doubt that we will sign a big name expensive striker. Think we are better off grabbing Sancho, moving to a back 4, and playing some version of a 4-4-2 or 4-2-4. Lukaku does seem to be the most likely at this point, if we do sign a striker.
  8. Agreed there will be competition for the signatures of Sancho and Varane. But there’s competition for most of the players we sign. I think Sancho, in particular, wants to come here - just a feeling.
  9. 1. I don’t think we sign a striker this summer unless it’s Haaland or Kane, neither of which seems likely. 2. Varane would be my choice 3. Sancho or Hazard 4. Tchouameni been rumored for awhile, so I’ll say him
  10. Gundogan is the only City player to have played in a CL final though, if I’m not mistaken. Seasoned pros but a first for almost all of them too.
  11. Reports out there of Chelsea interest, and more specifically Tuchel’s interest, in Wolfsburg CB Maxence Lacroix. Don’t know much about him but from a brief video analysis I watched, he’s big, strong, capable on the ball, and won’t be overly expensive.
  12. He’s an amazing player, but I think our chances of getting him are south of 0%. But we can hope!
  13. VAR ain’t the problem. It’s the f**king mugs interpreting it that’s the problem.
  14. A good chunk of coin. But he’s the type who will be good for another 3 years or so.
  15. I quite like the look of this. Breaks me to say it but I agree that Zouma will leave - Tuchel just doesn’t seem to prefer him over our other CBs. Would absolutely love for us to get Sancho. The kid is unbelievable, and would bring a quality in the final third that our squad is desperately missing. I haven’t watched much of Tchouameni, however, he is highly rated for sure. A few of the Chelsea YouTubers salivate over this guy, and Julien Laurens - who is very tuned in to Ligue 1 - talked about this guy as if he’s primed to become a world beater.
  16. I agree. Though I’ve had my moments of not being Kova’s biggest fan, he too has changed my mind over the past year and a half.
  17. Tuchel seems to be a huge fan of Kovacic, so I don’t see him being sold. I think bringing in Bissouma and Tielemens would be smart business. Leicester have been open to doing business with us in the past with Kante and Drinkwater, so maybe it’s possible.
  18. Seems likely that Milan will make Tomori’s move permanent.
  19. I think, generally, I’d still prefer Werner being aggressive and going for the header every time in that situation, shout or not. Slump aside, you want a forward attacking a ball inside the 6 yard box (he should have powered it home) rather than your defensive-minded wing back calling him off.
  20. He’s got a fancy haircut going on currently.
  21. This aspect of offside calls is not talked about enough in my opinion. It’s a completely subjective decision by the official behind the scenes on which frame he wants to use. f**ked us over more than once, this exact situation - if I remember correctly, Werner’s goal at Anfield was the same sh*t.
  22. I counted 4 times in the second half alone where Jorginho had opportunities to let loose a shot from just outside the 18 yard box, but instead passed it. Now, I’m not encouraging him to let loose and fire shots like crazy like Rüdiger, but at least try to be a threat to shoot. Jorginho does a lot for us in terms of recycling possession and such, but I’m sick and tired of the lack of guile and shooting ability.
  23. The first goal from Sancho is exactly what Chelsea have been missing this season. We don’t have anyone who can finish like that, from not a clear chance to a really nice goal.
