The Blues are still waiting to conduct their first piece of business in the transfer window this summer, though plenty of work appears to be happening behind the scenes. Director Marina Granovskaia has left as part of the Chelsea board reshuffle as new owner Todd Boehly will step in as interim sporting director for the rest of this transfer window before a new one is appointed.

Atletico Madrid’s Andrea Berta alongside the likes of former Liverpool director Michael Edwards have already been linked to the vacant position but there won’t be an appointment in this regard anytime soon with all focus solely on this £200million squad rebuild that Boehly has promised manager Thomas Tuchel. When it comes to the squad itself, reports claim there could be more departures before there are arrivals. The Athletic have reported that Romelu Lukaku is close to rejoining Inter Milan on loan just one-year after he made the club-record move back to Stamford Bridge.

Elsewhere, there has been some significant movement on Chelsea’s pursuit of other targets including in the attacking areas. Will the Blues be able to sign both Raheem Sterling and Ousmane Dembele? These questions still have to be answered throughout the next few months.

But in the meantime, brings you all the latest transfer rumours at Chelsea as the window heats up.

Chelsea have been told they will be able to sign Jules Kounde from Sevilla for less than the Spanish side’s current asking price.

Robert Lewandowski would be the ideal transfer for Chelsea right now. With Romelu Lukaku on his way to Inter Milan, the Blues may need to find an immediate replacement. There are a number of strikers on the market that could be a perfect fit for Thomas Tuchel but of course, Lewandowski is at the top of that list.

Tuchel has urged Chelsea to try for the Poland international despite his interest in a move to Barcelona. The facts are that the Catalans are in a difficult financial situation on which Chelsea could capitalise. However, it is also imperative the other options are explored.

90 Min Football has exclusively revealed that Chelsea representatives have met with Antony’s agents in recent times.

Tottenham and Manchester United are also heavily linked with the Brazilian.

Chelsea are currently ‘not’ close to signing Man City winger Raheem Sterling this summer, with Ousmane Dembele and Richarlison still viewed as viable options still by manager Thomas Tuchel in this revamp of the frontline.

Romelu Lukaku’s loan exit to Inter Milan is expected to trigger a flurry of transfer activity as Todd Boehly and Tuchel are set to get to work on their £200million squad rebuild which will involve the acquisition of key attacking and defensive players. It is understood that England international Sterling is the main attacking priority for Tuchel this summer, although no official talks have taken place so far between Chelsea and City. “There’s not anything close yet, but it’s possible,” Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio told wettfreunde.

“Chelsea had some contact with intermediaries to explore this deal, and the answer was that their initial opening potential proposal of £25m + add-ons was definitely not enough to convince Manchester City. City wants to make a package of €100-€110m (£86m-£94m), with both Gabriel Jesus and Sterling, so they want way more for Raheem Sterling.”

Chelsea and Manchester United have ‘knocked on’ Yannick Carrasco’s door this summer to sound him out about a move to the Premier League, Sport Witness have wrote.

That’s according to AS, who say that Atlético Madrid are absolutely uninterested in selling the Belgian regardless of his list of suitors.

Chelsea’s potential new Sporting Director Michael Edwards could have a big say in where Mohamed Salah ends up next summer, especially if Liverpool aren’t able to agree a new contract extension with the Egyptian amid the current wage stand-off with his agent Ramy Abbas.

Edwards played a big part in identifying and agreeing a rather cheap £38million with Roma for someone that failed to impress Jose Mourinho during his short SW6 stay. That type of talent identification and smart recruitment is something that is appreciated by Boehly. Maybe, the good relationship Edwards has with Liverpool’s No. 11 could prove key in the next summer’s transfer window, especially if the contract standoff wasn’t to be resolved from here on till next summer.

This will be a relief to Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel who had warned the Blues of what. the Brazilian could do in the Premier League if Man City were to have made a move.

More on shortly.

RB Leipzig and France international Christopher Nkunku signs a new deal and snubs a potential Chelsea transfer this season in favour of signing a new bumper deal in Germany, which has, in turn, ruled out a potential Timo Werner return to the Bundesliga.

With Romelu Lukaku’s return to Inter Milan on loan clsoe to being completed, new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is in the process of trying to identify which No. 9 will be targeted to replace him. The likes of Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling and Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele are both targets in the attacking areas as Thomas Tuchel looks to complete his complete revamp upfront for 2022/23.

This is according to Sport Witness who have quotes a report from Marca.

The Spanish outlet insists that Dembele’s wish is to stay at Barcelona, but since there have been no new movements since the last attempt for a renewal, the other clubs continue to be options.

Chelsea are labelled as the club who’ve been ‘pushing the most’ to get the signing done. And on their side there’s the presence of Thomas Tuchel, who worked with the forward at Barcelona.

Chelsea have decided that they will sign a Premier League-proven central defender to partner main transfer priority Jules Kounde in the defence for 2022/23, according to reports, as Josko Gvardiol and Kalidou Koulibaly amongst others learn their fate.

Of course, the Blues still have a battle on their hands for Kounde with Barcelona also hoping to sign the French international in spite of their financial woes. However, it is understood that Chelsea are still the overwhelming favourites to land the 23-year-old with more progression on the deal expected in the next week, if the latest reports in the European media are to be believed. understands that at least two centre-half signings are on the agenda for Boehly this summer, who looks set to act as a temporary sporting director amid links to Michael Edwards andAndrea Berta following Marina Granovskaia’s exit. The identity of the second target remains up in the air with many of the European elite being linked; the likes of Koulibaly, Gvardiol, Matthijs De Ligt, Presnel Kimpembe and others have all been named as potential candidates.

But it’s options closer to home that are reportedly to be given priority as Kounde’s new defensive partner according to TalkChelsea. Apparently, Chelsea want to sign a player with Premier League experience to partner the Sevilla star in defence.

Talks are expected to accelerate between the two clubs!

Chelsea target Ousmane Dembele is ‘happy’ to remain at Barcelona under Xavi due to the good relationship he has with the iconic former midfielder as the Blues are now forced into an unwanted transfer U-turn.

Worryingly, with Chelsea remaining in pole position, they may need to take the hint that Barca’s number 7 could be using their name for a new deal which is what Xavi wants to happen amid the financial stresses that can be found in Catalunya.

This is a sentiment echoed by Achraf Ben Ayad who has close links to the La Liga giants and his latest tweet indicated that a transfer U-turn may have to be on the cards for last season’s third-best team in England.

All talk surrounding a potential Chelsea move for the former Blues academy player has fallen flat. West Ham’s asking price of £150million coupled with the other priorities Chelsea have already on the agenda in the attacking and defensive areas means that all midfield activity hasn’t been able to get going as of now.

But, if The Telegraph’s Matt Law’s prediction is to be correct, then a move for the Hammers star could come nearer the end of this summer’s transfer window. “It wouldn’t surprise me if later on in the transfer window that starts to gather some pace, but the big priorities at the moment are defenders and attackers,” he said on the latest episode of the London is Blue Podcast.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has previously said he does not believe there is a better player in world football then Neymar amid shock links emerging that one of Man City and Juventus could make a move for the Paris Saint-Germain star.

The Parisians have undergone major surgery already this summer following a review from their Qatar Sports Investments ownership. Kylian Mbappe has has signed a major new contract after it looked likely he would be joining Real Madrid on a free transfer, while sporting director Leonardo and manager Mauricio Pochettino were given the chop.

Lille boss Christopher Galtier is on the verge of being brought in to take over from Pochettino and Luis Campos has joined as director of football, but if rumours are to be believed Brazilian icon Neymar could be leaving. Although the likes of Marca have highlighted that this would be an expensive signing for any club, Campos has reportedly double-downed on his opinion internally that this is the right time to move on the 30-year-old, as per Foot Mercato Journalist Santi Aouna.

Welcome along to’s coverage of Chelsea on Thursday!

There is expected to be significant action at the club on the transfer front regarding outgoings and incomings so keep following along throughout the day as we bring you all the latest gossip from around Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea’s summer transfer window is really expected to get started now.

All the Blues’ Premier League top six rivals with the exception of Manchester United have made a signing at this point whilst the west Londoners had been going about their business relatively quietly so far.

However, with Romelu Lukaku’s loan exit to Inter Milan all but confirmed with the exception of a medical being done, it is expected that Todd Boehly’s sole priority will then turn to spending some of the £200million transfer budget on incoming business.

With this in mind, brings you all the latest transfer rumours as the window is starting to heat up for Thomas Tuchel’s side amid the big Raheem Sterling update that was delivered last weekend.

The Frenchman’s potential £10million transfer to the Blues has been complicated at this early stage by Barca’s ‘complicated’ pursuit of Chelsea icon Cesar Azpilicueta. Goal exclusively revealed that interim sporting director Boehly had initiated contacts with Lens to sign Azpilicueta’s heir with the view that he would be a direct replacement for the Spanish international.

However, certain dominoes have to fall before Tuchel can get his new defensive signing in through the door and the latest on Barca’s pursuit of the 32-year-old makes worrying reading if you are a supporter who wants to see Clauss come through the doors this summer. This is because as per Spanish outlet EL Golazo De Gol, Barcelona are currently seeing the signings of Chelsea defenders Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso as ‘complicated’. Until both their futures are sorted out, it is unlikely that we will see any real movement on the Clauss front.

Liverpool could still sign another attacker this summer after Sadio Mane’s move to Bayern Munich was finally confirmed. The expectation was that Darwin Nunez would be the natural replacement for the Senegalese but even if he was to be, the exits of Takumi Minamino and AC Milan-bound Divock Origi mean that Jürgen Klopp is on the lookout for a new attacking option to join his squad.

Could this be the USMNT star who has already been linked to an Anfield move this summer? Well, apparently not according to CBS’ Ben Jacobs who tweeted: “Liverpool are not looking at Christian Pulisic as a ‘Mane replacement’. They already have Núñez. With Origi Milan-bound another attacking option could still be considered, but I am told it won’t be Pulisic.”

All talk surrounding a potential Chelsea move for the former Blues academy player has fallen flat. West Ham’s asking price of £150million coupled with the other priorities Chelsea have already on the agenda in the attacking and defensive areas means that all midfield activity hasn’t been able to get going as of now.

But, if The Telegraph’s Matt Law’s prediction is to be correct, then a move for the Hammers star could come nearer the end of this summer’s transfer window. “It wouldn’t surprise me if later on in the transfer window that starts to gather some pace, but the big priorities at the moment are defenders and attackers,” he said on the latest episode of the London is Blue Podcast.

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain both approached Michael Edwards before he departed Liverpool this summer; Chelsea are interested in the 42-year-old but he is intent on taking a break from football

Chelsea are expected to engage Michael Edwards over their sporting director vacancy with owner Todd Boehly previously referencing Liverpool as a “great model” for success.

The man who helped reshape the recruitment of the Merseysiders and constructed Jürgen Klopp’s world-class squad with smart, analytical-powered transfers, departed Anfield this summer after 11 years.

A source close to Edwards has told Sky Sports News that since the 42-year-old’s decision to leave was made public last November, he has been approached by Europe’s powerhouse teams – Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain specifically – as well as hedge funds and billionaires wanting to buy clubs and have him run them.

With Marina Granovskaia’s departure at Chelsea, Edwards is of interest to become their transfer chief, especially as Boehly is an admirer of his overhaul at Liverpool, which stretched to making the Anfield club leaders in analytics and orchestrating the move to a £50m training centre.

At a private equity and venture capital event, the American businessman said: “If you look at the models that are very successful, Liverpool is a great model. They generate a couple of hundred million more revenue than Chelsea and they generate earnings.”

The consortium fronted by Boehly and Clearlake Capital are determined to be more measured in paving the path forward.

Edwards put the sustainable structures in place that restored Liverpool as a domestic and European force, including the hiring of Klopp, which will tick on in his absence.

He has been adamant over taking a break and spending time with his family. Sky Sports News understands it would take something to “blow the bloody doors off” to even get him to a meeting at the moment, let alone consider a new job in football.
