Good morning Chelsea fans
Chelsea are set to be ambushed by club legend and former boss Frank Lampard, who is planning a major overhaul at Everton after a dismal season that saw them nearly relegated.
Lampard is reportedly eyeing Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour, who were respectively on loan at Crystal Palace and Norwich last season.
The former blues skipper will use his “connections” to the club to lure Gallagher and Gilmour to Goodison Park, the Mail reports.
Both midfielders face uncertain futures at their home club as a squad already filled with established seniors is set to be strengthened in the summer.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are optimistic about signing Sevilla star Jules Kounde in the upcoming summer transfer window.
The Blues missed Kounde last year after the LaLiga side raised their asking price in the eleventh hour.
But Chelsea have retained interest in the centre-back as boss Thomas Tuchel looks to finally secure his services.
According to ABC Sevilla, the west Londoners are hoping they can reach an agreement in the region of £43m-51m.
The Andalusians insisted in 2021 the France international would not be sold unless his £68m release clause was activated.
And Chelsea star Romelu Lukaku has reportedly agreed a sensational return to Inter Milan less than a year after returning to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues spent a club-record fee of £97.5million to bring Lukaku back last summer.
And according to Gazzetta dello Sport, the centre-forward is close to making another sensational return, this time to the San Siro.
The Italy outlet claim the Nerazzurri have reached an agreement to pay the Belgium international’s £6.39million wages in a loan deal.
The 28-year-old is said to have 15 days to convince Chelsea’s lawyers to accept the Serie A giants’ proposal.
Finally, Christian Pulisic has admitted he would like more playing time should there be a potential exit.
Pulisic told US reporters: “So far I’m obviously just focused on what I’m doing here.
“And I’m super excited to be here. And yes it is.
“Of course I want to get more playing time. I want to be on the field as much as possible and be as sharp as possible and be fit too.
“I think I have a lot of games left but it’s always something I’m working on and trying to play regularly at club level too to put myself in the best position to be fit when I come here with the national team .”
