Good morning Chelsea fans
New lads Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Sterling are expected to start in the Prem opener at Everton on Saturday.
But boss Thomas Tuchel’s offer to sign a new centre-back by this weekend is stuttering.
However, Chelsea have recruited two coveted 18-year-olds.
Aston Villa midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka picked the Blues ahead of Barcelona for £20m.
And American keeper Gabriel Slonina came from the Chicago Fire, although he was immediately loaned back to the MLS side.
Manchester City have reportedly turned down a £67m bid for reported Stamford Bridge target Josko Gvardiol.
Tuchel’s Blues are understood to have been in talks to swap the RB Leipzig left-back for former Bundesliga giants forward Timo Werner.
RB Salzburg striker Benjamin Sesko would reportedly cost £45m amid ties with Chelsea, United and Newcastle.
And Napoli are on the verge of loaning Chelsea backup goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga for the season.
