Chelsea will look for their first Premier League victory under Graham Potter on Saturday (October 1) at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace. The Blues are seventh in the standings after six games.
Meanwhile, the London giants are in the running for an Inter Milan defender. On the other hand, Christian Pulisic is set to join AC Milan.
On that note, here’s a look at Chelsea’s key transfer stories on September 29, 2022:
Chelsea in the race for Milan Skriniar
Chelsea are firmly in the race to sign Milan Skriniar, according to Calciomercato via Caught Offside.
The Slovakian international is in the final year of his contract with Inter Milan but has yet to sign an extension. The Blues briefly watched him with interest this summer before opting to invest in Wesley Fofana.
The London giants remain keen to add more steel to their backline next year and have set their sights on Skriniar. The Slovakian has been rock solid in defense for the Nerazzurri since he arrived in 2017.
Skriniar has appeared 224 times for the Serie A giants, scoring 11 goals. The Premier League side want to secure the 27-year-old’s signing in a Bosman move next summer. However, they could face competition from quite a few clubs around Europe, including Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
Christian Pulisic ready to sign for AC Milan
Christian Pulisic is set to join AC Milan in January, according to Gazzetta dello Sport via Caught Offside.
The 24-year-old has failed to live up to expectations at Chelsea and is now an isolated figure in the team. He has struggled for playing time, and the arrival of Raheem Sterling this summer hasn’t helped his cause.
Pulisic is now keen to revive his career and is keen to move to Serie A to make a fresh start. The Blues would have no qualms about letting him go, as they are already making plans to improve his attack.
Fabrizio Romano Opens Up About Blues Search for Jude Bellingham
Fabrizio Romano has said that Chelsea are in a battle to land Jude Bellingham next summer. The Borussia Dortmund midfielder has earned rave reviews with his consistent performances for the Bundesliga giants.
In his column for Caught Offside, Romano said several European powers are vying for Bellingham’s signature.
“Some rumors will be true; some will be false; that’s part of the game. What I know for sure is that all the best European clubs will be there for Bellingham: some have made contacts; others are still waiting to join the race,” Romano said.
The Italian said Liverpool have made Bellingham a priority target for next year.
“Liverpool will be there to begin with: they want Bellingham; they also wanted Aurelien Tchouameni earlier this year. Now a priority for Liverpool is to sign a top midfielder, and they saved money this summer by signing Arthur Melo on loan. Bellingham is now his priority,” Romano said.
Romano also named Manchester City, Manchester United and Real Madrid as the English midfielder’s suitors.
“Man City and United will be there too, but watch out for Real Madrid: they sold Casemiro to Manchester United, and they have two fantastic but aging midfielders, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. That is why Bellingham is on Real’s list, but we must remember that the player does not yet have an agreement with any club. Everything is open and it will take time,” Romano said.
Romano added that Bellingham is also attracting interest from Stamford Bridge.
“Chelsea are also thinking of a new midfielder: they wanted Frenkie de Jong this summer and they have a difficult contract situation with N’Golo Kante. Bellingham is attracting interest from Chelsea, so let’s see what happens with this long list of clubs,” Romano said.
Bellingham has appeared 100 times for Dortmund since arriving in 2020 and has found the back of the net 13 times.
