Chelsea are in the market as the Blues are keen to bring in quality players to massively improve their squad ahead of next season. Chelsea are now reportedly poised to agree deal to complete the signing of Jan Oblak and Nicolas Tagliafico as talks have massively progressed.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been reported to have lost faith in Kepa Arrizabalaga as the Spanish goalkeeper has failed to impress the Blues boss this season. Frank Lampard has been said to have informed the Blues transfer chiefs to complete the signing of Jan Oblak.
27-year old Jan Oblak is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world and Chelsea view the keeper as the perfect replacement for Kepa. The Blues are reportedly ready to trigger the release clause for Oblak as Chelsea owner Roman Abrahimovic has sanctioned the transfer.
However, Chelsea are looking to offer Atletico Madrid a fee of £80million to sign the world-class goalie. The fee will mean Chelsea will again break the world transfer record which they broke when they signed Kepa Arrizabalaga from Atletico Bilbao.
Also, Chelsea are looking to bring in quality defensive reinforcements and the signing of a Left-back is high on the club’s wishlist. Chelsea are targeting a move for Nicolas Tagliafico as the Blues have held talks with the Ajax defender.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has had so many issues with the Left-back position as both Alonso and Emerson haven’t truly convinced the manager. Chelsea have reportedly held preliminary talks with Tagliafico and the club is close to confirming the deal.
Chelswa are looking to offer Ajax a fee in the region of £40million to complete the signing of the 27-year old defender. Tagliafico has is regarded as an excellent attacking fullback and the player will fit into Frank Lampard’s philosophy at Chelsea.
Nicolas Tagliafico will be a huge upgrade on Alonso and Emerson and he will be adding massive quality to Chelsea’s defence. The arrival of Oblak and Nicolas Tagliafico will be a huge addition of quality which will improve the Blues.
Lampard’s addition of Jan Oblak and Tagliafico will solve Chelsea’s lingering defensive issues and their arrival will be a huge statement as Chelsea are ready to compete for trophies under Frank Lampard. Also, coupled with the signing of Ziyech and Werner, Chelsea will be an unstoppable side next season.
