Chelsea on verge of completing two deals

Despite Chelsea’s exciting start to the season, and some new additions that are already making the mouth water, there have been persistent murmurs about more summer arrivals. As many expected, Eden Hazard has exploded onto the English scene and just looks like a world beater already. He’s got to be one of the favourites for player of the season, even after one game. But let’s not forget Oscar, who also came on and sparkled. He runs quicker with the ball than most players do without it. Many pundits were saying before the season that the title race was between the Manchester clubs, but this does a huge disservice to Chelsea.  Oscar and Hazard will rip teams to shreds this season.

Nevertheless, the feeling from within the club is that Chelsea need to strengthen further, at right-back and up front.

Various reports this morning are suggesting a deal for Cesar Azpilicueta is all but done. The 22 year old Marseille right back is keen on a move. He is quoted in the French press as saying

“I have great respect for the OM and its fans. But if my sale will help the club everyone will have something to be happy about.”

As for a striker The Daily Mail, amongst others, is writing about an imminent deal for Edinson Cavani from Napoli. Roberto Di Matteo is quoted in the article as saying:

‘We’re probably a bit light in attacking positions.’

The stumbling block continues to be his wage demands but Chelsea seem now to prefer a deal for the Uruguayan than Porto’s Hulk, who has also been linked to the club for most of the summer. We think it’s almost certain that one of them will join before the window closes.

Watch this space.

    calvani and the OM right back will do chelsea enough good but if Merieles is going or not likely to be use, then how is our defending midfield going to be like? Because Mikel is not capable of handling that position at all.

      Aug 22, 2012 at 10:17 am

      Why cant u fans appreciate the efforts of mikel. Maybe u know better than the coaches thats why u are saying this. But surely that position is not giving the coaches grey hair!

        Aug 22, 2012 at 3:54 pm

        Why are u complaining about mikel i will advise u to watch our match against bercelona nd beryn munich den u will knw hw good mikel is in dat possition

      Aug 22, 2012 at 11:08 am

      I guess u really dnt knw what u ‘re saying. Hw can u say Mikel is nt a good defensive midfielder. He played well against Barca, Bayern nd Wigan. Mikel will continue to give his best.

    • Gifto

      Aug 22, 2012 at 12:02 pm

      My guy, chelsea does nt need a defencive midfielder. Infact we hav many of them in ramires, romeo + lamp & mikel. He is obviously an outstanding player and has proved himself at chelsea. So don’t talk about mikel like dat

    • Abuchi

      Aug 22, 2012 at 3:56 pm

      Lets appriciate what we have,it is not easy to play in chelsea’s first11.mikel is good dats why every every manager that comes to chelsea uses him.believe it or not, mikel is a good player anytime anyday.

    • ajoka amos

      Aug 22, 2012 at 4:32 pm

      i bliv if mikel is nt gud 4 dat positn a new leg wl b brot in bt since chelsea r nt talkin of a replacment dt means he is gr8 in dt positn..pls let learn to apreciat hm.

    • Ubayak Kande Hassan

      Aug 22, 2012 at 6:21 pm

      Are u losing faith in our midfield maestro, Edoka ? Wth him and co, in good shape, Mikel’s gud 2 go. Tnx.

    • Fuad

      Aug 23, 2012 at 6:39 am

      The best mid field player in that holding role is mikel.the likes of lampard are creating problem because on killer pass,marking.he only knows how to take penalty.

    • Fuad

  5. Please we need Victor Moses he is a good player

  6. tafaz

    Aug 22, 2012 at 10:12 am

    cavani wil play the Tevez role for Chelsea….hez an animal…hardworkin,good shot taker,incredible pace and skill!! However my mind cnt stop wishin 4 Moses….

  7. Idowu Olaniyi Bankole

    Aug 22, 2012 at 10:19 am

    I prefer Hulk than Cavani

  8. Dinshiya

    Aug 22, 2012 at 10:24 am

    I will like 2 see cesar and cavani inside a blue jersey up Di matteo…

  9. E.A Abayomi

    Aug 22, 2012 at 10:39 am

    It’s just like if we are forcing Cavani down to d bridge cos he’s self-centered but Hulk is very eager to be a Blues. Why don’t we go for someone who is proud to be blues.

  10. pele

    Aug 22, 2012 at 10:57 am

    Good if Apz is arriving soon! Cavani wld b a great addition bt I feel so sorry for Torres who has made a great impression so far. And I just also hope Cavani clicks as well, I just pray so.. Oscar made a bright start in his EPL debut though he misplaced some passes but I noticed there was a good knocking around of the ball and he comes to the midefield putting himself into space and calling for the ball to attack. I just hope he gets so many playing time.. Dat guy is gona be a Xavi for Chelsea. Up Blues

    Aug 22, 2012 at 11:29 am

    Yes it is true four what you say. i supported your comment edoka steven. if we sign a good striker and 2 and we still need a good def ensive midfiend cause mikel can fit the position cause is larcking in that wing so we need a player like cheik tiote or witsel

    • Rafael

      Aug 22, 2012 at 9:43 pm

  20. Abzzcfc

    Aug 22, 2012 at 3:49 pm

    and HE is a player that only cares about MONEY thats why his wage demands are very HIGH
    HULK IS MUCH BETTER since he scored his last game at the olympics and that I AGREE with some of you guys saying that he likes chelsea he wants TO BE PART of THE BLUES he is better than CAVAN 🙁 🙁

    • djsav

      Aug 23, 2012 at 1:14 am

      Tottaly agree, as much as i rate Cavani, i fear after 1 yr on these shores, he going to do Carlos Tevez and say he wants to go home. Hulk on the other hand would be a better option as he wants to join us, plus he has his Brazilian team mates Luiz, Ramires, Oscer, and Piazon.
      CFC FOR LIFE!!

  21. Omotayo shobowale

    Aug 22, 2012 at 3:50 pm

  24. ibrahim alhassan zambaga

    Aug 22, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    i wonder why some chelsea fans still don’t know if mikel play all d time 4 d team we can’t climb d table not 2 talk of picking d tittle.he gives out goals just at d edge of d box.he can’t tackle or create chance or socore goals.he can only possessed d ball at times give it away cheeply.7yrs with d club n he never improve.i wonder where he would have been by now if morinho is still around

  25. Esom chelsea

  27. Josie

  28. Dr.fuuzu

    Aug 22, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    I think our coach should start using romeo ramires at the pivot and allow mata at the 11th possition, Hazard 10th, oscer 7th and the main boss torres up front.

  34. Brian Pearl

    Aug 22, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    OCAR MATA and Hazard should play behind Torres, Lampard should be benched for Ramires, the palying style should change Tiki-taka…..or else D i mateo will find his way out of Chelsea, He should remember Guardiola is still jobless

  50. Omini Inah

    Aug 23, 2012 at 1:10 am

    I have ever love the way our new signing are playing, i should say, the signing are never wrong signing they are all good but still lacking on one side of it. We need strike that will supost the front. Player like Torres can not do it only, so the club need somebody that will help in the striking force (Cavani). I prefer Napoli strike than poto’s strike (Hulk). Cavani is the man we all need in the team follow by right-back.

  51. Khadar

    Aug 23, 2012 at 1:48 am

    We look much better than any other club this season..but evry time we looking new player,s first we must look our chealsea player,s we have great player,s..but we don.t know our best squad..we all coplaning about torres but we can,t see .f.lanpard .and.j terry tired…2 me they have to be at bench …we let drogba 2 go away and we looking v moses..what a mistake…i think we must think 4 terry and lanpard all we need is 1 more forwrd and right bck…

  52. abdulrashid idris

    Aug 23, 2012 at 3:55 am

    chelsea shuld tink twice b4 they go 4 another player,we need to 4get abt moses nd face a cavani deal,i guess cavani is more better dan moses
