Forgotten Chelsea Man Is The Missing Piece

A talent spotter who believes that Sarri’s puzzle would be complete by adding missing piece, a player to complete his squad at the club.

The Italian scout has named Kurt Zouma as the missing piece, that he can become the ‘colonel’ in defence for Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea according to a scout familiar with the Italian’s work and player preferences in Serie A.

According to Fabrizio Bertuzzi, a talent spotter who has worked for Fiorentina’s recruitment department, the French centre-back can save the former Napoli manager and his new employers millions once he returns to Cobham.

The 24-year-old is currently on loan at Everton for the season having spent a year with Stoke City.

He was previously tipped to replace John Terry at Chelsea before a major knee injury in 2016 distorting his progress.

Zouma’s road to recovery has been slow, and following the return of Andreas Christensen from a two-year loan spell with Borussia Monchengladbach and the signings of Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz, he has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

Bertuzzi believes it would be a mistake to overlook his potential, especially with Sarri now installed as head coach at Chelsea.

His track record when it comes to developing players is formidable and after missing out on signing Juventus stopper Daniele Rugani in the summer, he could find what he is looking for in a new centre-back within Zouma.

The Italian hopes that the defender can follow in the footsteps of Chelsea midfielders Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek by winning chances in the first team by impressing at international level.

Zouma was included in the latest France squad and won his third cap earlier this month in a friendly with Iceland that finished 2-2.

Back in August, Zouma spoke out about his plans to use his loan spell at Everton as a means to win a spot in Sarri’s side.

Chelsea join race to sign Manchester United target

According to reports from teamtalk, they have revealed that Manchester United and Chelsea are both interested in signing Bristol City starlet, Antoine Semenyo during this January window.

The youngster has been impressing out on loan at Newport County this season and his displays have seen scouts queuing to watch him in action.

With six goals in the kitty this season for the Exiles, the 19 year old is thought to be valued at £2m with the Premier League giants plotting their moves.

Raised in London, 19-year-old Antoine Semenyo moved to Bristol in order to attend SGS, a college based in Filton.

Loans manager Brian Tinnion and head of recruitment Damien Butt were impressed by the then-17-year old, and after a brief trial period with the Robins, he put pen to paper in September of last year, signing a two-year deal.

In his first appearance for City, Semenyo bagged two goals as they ran out 7-2 victors in an under-18s fixture against Hull City.

Why Barcelona are making move for Chelsea ill-performing player

The Spanish side, Barcelona have reportedly made moves to sign Chelsea ill-performing striker, Olivier Giroud.

A report has made it known that the world cup winner wants to leave Chelsea FC as he battles with limited playing chances in the Blues squad.

Lately, Maurizio Sarri has resolved to start Eden Hazard as a false nine in recent matches while Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata are left to watch from the dugout.

It is bizarre to however see that the Catalans are interested in signing Giroud, who is out of place at Stamford Bridge.

But it seems to be a rather wise move from the coach, Ernesto Valverde, who will be keen to bolster his attacking options following the departure of Paco Alcacer.

Also, Olivier Giroud is a cheaper option for the Catalans as compared to Neymar Jr, who Barcelona wanted to resign from Paris Saint Germain.

It is however unsure if Chelsea will allow the France international leave in January considering the fact that they have agreed on a loan deal for Alvaro Morata to leave for Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona will have to wait till the summer to be able to pull the move.

Real Madrid prepares £88m Bid For Chelsea star man

Spanish giants ,Real Madrid are plotting a big money move for Chelsea forward Eden Hazard according to various reports emanating from the media in Spain.

According to the publication from Spanish media outlet Marca, Real Madrid are eyeing a move for the Belgian international attacker in the summer and are hopeful that a bid of around £88m would be enough to prise him away from Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian has less than 18 months on his current deal with Chelsea and the Premier League giants have not been able to tie him down to a new contract.

The Blues risk losing him for free in the summer of 2020 if Eden Hazard does not sign a new contract at the club meaning that they might need to sell him this summer.

Hazard has already talked up the idea of signing for the Spanish La Liga outfit adding that it would be a dream move for him.

The talisman has grown to become the star player in the Chelsea team since he joined the club from French Ligue 1 giants Lille during the summer of 2012 shortly after the Blues won the Champions League via a penalty shootout win over German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
