Chelsea are reported to be close to signing FC Porto winger Yacine Brahimi, although his club have admitted to being in talks with other clubs, as the Blues try to add more players to the club this summer. The deal for Brahimi is a tough bidding war, but the club are confident of convincing the player to join them at Stamford Bridge, according to reports by Portuguese website O Jogo.

Wolfsburg, AC Milan, Premier league rival Liverpool and others are keen on landing the highly-rated Algerian winger this summer, but Chelsea hope to complete the deal within a few days. According to the reports, the deal is in advanced stages and Porto want £30million for the player. However, the club has a poor financial position and has issues with the Financial Fair Play rules, hence a fee of £15m looks more likely.

Guus Hiddink underplays Tottenham for Monday's Match

Guus Hiddink believes that Monday’s opposition Tottenham could be affected by nerves as they are involved in the title race for the first time.

Spurs are the visitors to Stamford Bridge and they will be looking to keep in touch with Leicester City at the top of the table. After a 1-1 draw with Manchester United, Leicester have moved one step closer towards the title. Tottenham could have been in a much better position had it not been for the draw with West Brom at White Hart Lane. This was a deeply disappointing result that allowed Leicester to go within three points of the title.

Chelsea Players Heading to Euro 2016

This season has been a questionable one for Chelsea, and one that they would undoubtedly prefer to wipe clean from footballing history. Having started off with a terrible 2-2 draw against Swansea, the club appeared to set the tone for what would be their form for the rest of the season. Not only was morale already low, but with the combined toxicity of the atmosphere surrounding Jose Mourinho's management status a negative vibe hounded the team.

As if ‘the season to forget’ wasn’t enough for Chelsea fans to bare, there are rumours presently doing the rounds that hint at Diego Costa missing out on Euro 2016.

Thierry Henry warns Chelsea Players about their Poor Form

Thierry Henry has warned Chelsea’s underperforming stars that they have a tough future ahead – if they do not improve – under Antonio Conte next summer.

The Italian has been announced as the next manager of Chelsea on a three-year contract. He replaces Guus Hiddink, who has been at the club on an interim basis. There has already been a lot of talk about Conte’s style of management and the latest to comment is former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry. After having played with Conte in a short spell at Juventus, Henry recalls that the Italian is a straightforward guy who will do anything for the betterment of the team.

Guus Hiddink believes that the English FA should not push Diego Costa

Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink believes that the English FA has been unfairly punishing striker Diego Costa.

The Spaniard has already received a number of suspensions since his move to Chelsea in 2014. However, he continues to be one of the best forwards that the club has seen since the days of Didier Drogba. Costa has been involved in a number of clashes with opposition players. This has often seen both parties at the receiving end of yellow and red cards. This was the case in the FA Cup quarter-final against Everton when Costa clashed with defensive midfielder Gareth Barry throughout the game.

Guus Hiddink Urges Players to Push until the end of Season

Guus Hiddink maybe only the interim manager at Chelsea, but he has urged his players to keep on pushing until the end of the season.

The blues have little to play for in the rest of the campaign other than pride. After being knocked out of the Champions League and FA Cup in successive matches, they can only hope to finish higher than 10th in the league table. This has been an extremely disappointing season, but one small hope is that they can go unbeaten in the league under Hiddink. Since the Dutchman came in December, results in the league have improved although there have been a number of draws along the way.
