Chelsea transfer news: Lampard, Cavani, Toure, Zola, Hulk, Schurrle
Chelsea FC transfer news is brewing stories about the possible exit of Frank Lampard from Premier League, but the Blues veteran is reportedly looking to discuss his future with England manager, Roy Hodgson. Lampard is looking to make a move away to MLS with LA Galaxy asking him to continue from where David Beckham left.
The Stamford Bridge side target Edinson Cavani has reportedly stated that he would like to stay at Napoli if the squad becomes stronger and new players are acquired for the same purpose. The Blues have been heavily linked to the Uruguayan striker, who is in ominous form this season. The Italian club has also stated their intentions of retaining the forward via the buyout clause of €70 million.
Chelsea FC have been linked to Manchester City FC midfielder, Yaya Toure, who is unhappy with the Sky Blues, as he feels unappreciated at the Etihad side. The 29-year-old has asked for a new contract by Saturday and threatened to leave if he does not get one. Roman Abramovich might be looking to replace Lampard with the signing of Ivory Coast midfielder.
The Blues are continuing their search for a new manager as Rafa Benitez is leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the season. Watford manager, Gianfranco Zola has refused to rule out returning to Chelsea FC to become their new manager, but has played down the current speculations linking him as the successor to Benitez.
The Blues might be looking to reignite their interest in Hulk after the Zenit St. Petersburg man admitted to looking for a move in the summer. Hulk was linked to Stamford Bridge last summer with reports suggesting that the deal was finalised, but it suddenly went dead. Chelsea FC might be looking to bring in Andre Schurrle by using De Bruyne as the sweetener in the exchange deal.
