According to The Athletic on Kounde:

- Club are prepared to do whatever it takes to sign the CB

- An agreement is thought to be some way off

- Club trying to offer player plus cash to lower the fee. The player offered has moved from Emerson to Zouma but the situation is a bit tricky because the latter is settled in London and there's interest from West Ham

- Kounde has been wanted by the club for the past two years

- He is keen on a move to SB and sees it as a good step to make at this stage of his career

- Several names were under consideration along with Kounde after Tuchel took over - Sule, Konate and Gimenez

- Club planning for the future with Kounde and the fact that some of the defenders' contract is running down

- Club have looked at the possibility of offering £30 million + Zouma for Kounde but it will take more cash for Sevilla to accept, something more in the region of £40 million + Zouma

- Sevilla are admirers of Christensen but the club want to keep him and have opened talks with him

- Rudiger wants to be made one of the club's highest-paid players (but no mention of whether contract talks have started)

Looks like we are pushing Inter for Lukaku.

If you're referring to the stories that came out yesterday, then they're probably BS or didn't go anywhere because the Italian media started and killed the rumors at the same time...

Fair to Rudi that he was immense toward the backend of the season, but prior to that, shaky. I'd be against making him one of the highest earners considering his history and age. I wouldn't shed a tear if he went, though like I said, toward the backend of the season, his attitude was good to see.

this. He is not getting any younger too. His entire career form outside those last 30 games for us does not suggest he warrants this kind of wages.

Agree. Loved watching Rüdiger in the second half of last season, but pre-Tuchel I'd been wanting him to get sold for a good 1-2 years. At the moment I guess I'd look how he plays till around November-December and then decide whether to open contract talks or start preparing for him potentially leaving on a free transfer. He can start negotiating with other clubs in January but even if he hasn't signed a renewal before then he could still easily end up staying if he doesn't get the contract offer he wants from other clubs either.

I believe the club's highest paid players get around £250-300K/wk and based on his overall performances in the last few years I don't think the club should give Rüdiger that much. At the moment his salary is likely somewhere in the £100K/wk ball park so asking for 2-3 times that much is unwarranted unless he first proves the second half of 20/21 season wasn't just a purple patch and  is now his actual level in the long term.

First of all I said £35m-£40m. Second, why can Brentford get £35m for a CF who hasn't kicked a ball in the PL, yet we can't for a 23 year old English CF who has a decent scoring record in the PL? 

As for teams, all the teams need a CF: 

Brighton 

Palace 

Newcastle 

Le Arse (If they sell Laca)

West Ham

You can argue some of those won't go near £40m (Newcastle, although they blew £30m on Joe Linton of all people.) So, it is not unreasonable to think this. Tammy may not be Chelsea level but he is capable of getting 12-15 goals a season at his current level (and he still has room to improve) and that sort of return would keep of those teams in the PL. 

I'm willing to bet money that if Villa sell Grealish they will buy Tammy. He probably will be bought for 35 million with 5 millions with add ons.

Since it’s looking less and less likely that we’ll buy a striker ourselves, I think we should prepare ourselves to see Tammy stay. Which is nuts given Tuchel doesn’t fancy him at all.

Is it any guarantee that Villa will go after Abraham if/when they sell Grealish? They haven't really been linked with Abraham all summer and haven't looked like they're targeting another ST either. It looks as though Dean Smith wants to add attacking players to play behind the ST if the pursuit for Emile Smith Rowe and now Leon Bailey is anything to go by. They have of course also signed the likes of Emiliano Buendia and Ashley Young.

Borussia Dortmund's CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has all-but confirmed that Erling Haaland will be staying in Germany for the upcoming season.

The Blues are keen on a move for the Norwegian but his £160million asking price is proving to be a stumbling block.

Dortmund are not willing to budge on their valuation and it seems they wish to keep him for at least another year.

Watzke said: "It is pretty clear to me that Erling Haaland will stay at Dortmund, just as Julian Brandt will remain.

"I tend to say that every day but no one really seems to listen as I hear something new every week."

 

70% and rising this (Håland coming here) is not happening

Rudigar has only had few very good months of football in 4 seasons at Chelsea, he is certainly not worth it. 

If Rudiger isn't going to extend, it would be best if we sell him now.

Rudiger played exactly half PL minutes last season. With him we conceded 10, without him 26 goals. You may argue it is because he started playing under TT in 3atb but remember that also he and Zouma in pairing kept always clean sheets under Lampard who for some reason barely used them together. Rudi did not play in 7 of our 9 PL losses last season. Even under Tuchel that freak game against WBA happened without him. We also argued that Jorginho mistake against Arsenal in home loss would not happened if Rudi was there in Zouma place. So he is very, very important. And now when Zouma leave apart from him we do not have a player who played LCB in 3atb system which makes him even more important. We need him even if that means losing him for free next summer because on this market in this contract situation we cannot get more then 20m.
