As per some of the reports in the Turkish media, Chelsea has placed a bid of about 15 million Pounds for Emmanuel Emenike, the 27-year old Nigerian forward, who is currently a contracted player of Fenerbahce.
The Blues are keen to get in a few quality forwards this summer. They are already after the Spaniard Diego Costa and now, they have set their eyes on Emenike as well.
Chelsea should be able to secure the Emenike deal with the amount of money that they have reportedly offered to Fenerbahce.
Emenike himself is also quite interested in playing in English top tier. Recently, he said in one of his interviews in Brazil that if he is approached by a good English club, he would not reject the offer.
When asked about the rumours of him on the radar of Chelsea, the Nigerian international said, “Right since my childhood, I’ve wanted to play in the English league. So, if I am given any such chance, I would definitely grab it.”
Chelsea star Eden Hazard has revealed that he has started negotiating a new contract with Chelsea, which would finally put an end to the transfer rumours. Hazard has been heavily linked with a move to Paris St Germain in the last few months. PSG have been open in trying to persuade Hazard to move across the Channel. It has been rumoured that the club would be coming in with a £ 75 million offer in the next few weeks. This comes just weeks after they managed to sign David Luiz for £ 50 million.
José Mourinho has stated that he has enjoyed his return to the Premier league despite not winning any major trophy this year. The Portuguese boss is set to end his second consecutive year without a trophy, as the blues dropped out of contention for the league title and the Champions League in the final few weeks of the season. Mourinho came back to Chelsea with big expectations. He also tried to implement a lot of new things at the club. However, they will be only finishing third in the table for all their hard work.
Mourinho, though, sees this as a major improvement from the last campaigns. Chelsea struggled to finish in the top four for the last two seasons, despite winning the Champions League, Europa league, and FA Cup during this period.
Mourinho has confirmed that the club will not be celebrating their third place finish and also reaching the semifinals of the Champions League. Instead, the club will be starting the rebuilding work for the next campaign immediately.
Chelsea striker Demba Ba proved that the strikers at the club are more than capable of scoring goals with his late effort against Paris St Germain in the Champions League quarter-finals.
This late goal helped the blues get to the semifinals 3-3 on aggregate, but they have progressed due to the away goals. For long periods of the match, it looked like Chelsea would be unable to get the crucial second goal that would put them in the semifinals. Andre Schurrle had given the club the lead in the first half.
Athletic Madrid’s Diego Costa has been one of the standout players in La Liga this season as he is one of the top goal-scorers on the Spanish League along with Lionel Messi and C.Ronaldo as well as being one of the most fundamental and important players for his club which has helped them on not only being at the top of the league but getting into the next stages of the Champions League where they now have to face off against PSG.
Chelsea is also located at the top of their respective league but there is an area of the team of Jose Mourinho in which the club has been struggling in and that is on the attacking department of the squad with neither Fernando Torres, Demba Ba nor Samuel Eto’o being able to turn themselves as reliable and consistent forwards which can step it up whenever it is needed.
