18 year old Chelsea player talent linked with Championship loan
Ian Maatsen, an 18-year-old academy star, looks ready for a senior loan for a long time, and it sounds like one could be imminent.
Chelsea tries to give their youngest, professional supporters to the Championship, probably push them over the edge, and Football Insider is linking Maatsen with a transfer to Reading in the second tier.
It's a decision that makes perfect sense to us as he should be able to get plenty of games, while also going up against good division teams on a daily basis.
As we saw with Conor Gallagher last year, if all goes right, it will be the ultimate springboard for a bottom half of the Premier League transfer the year after – and then hopefully on to the first team from there.
Ben Chilwell 's signing has definitely created a new hurdle for Maatsen at Stamford Bridge, but his tender years ensure he will go on to improve for a couple of years before returning a more full player ready to fight England for his spot.
Kai Havertz: Chelsea agree €80m fee with Bayer Leverkusen
Kai Havertz is closing in on a move from Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea after a package of €80 m plus €20 m for the midfielder has been agreed by the clubs.
Havertz, who is keen to join the club as soon as possible, has not yet had a medical consultation with Chelsea and remains with the German squad for their UEFA League positions with Spain and Switzerland.
Leverkusen's head coach Peter Bosz said earlier this week that the 21-year-old is unlikely to play with the club again as he is making a move to the Premier League.
After the arrivals of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr and Xavier Mbuyamba, Havertz looks set to become the seventh summer signing of Frank Lampard.
Chelsea has given Leverkusen the opportunity to sign one of their summer arrivals, Sarr, on season loan as part of the deal.
Chelsea would benefit from an offer by Rennes for Sassuolo star Boga
The Blues will earn some much-needed funds when their former midfielder eventually ends up on another transfer.
French club Rennes sent an offer of € 20 million (£17m/$23 m) with add-ons to Sassuolo midfielder Jeremie Boga for Chelsea to share the benefits of every future move.
Blues director Marina Granovskaia has recently converted a € 15 million (£13.5 million/$18 million) buy-back option on Boga into a shrewd sell-on agreement that will see Chelsea demand 10-15 per cent on the negotiated price.
With Series A trio Atalanta, Napoli and Roma all vying for the 23-year-old, who has flourished in Italy's top-flight in the past two seasons, Sassuolo has set an asking price of € 30 million for Boga.
Over the 2019-20 season the former Blues youth player netted 11 league goals as he explained his decision to leave Stamford Bridge permanently in 2018.
Any potential transfer this summer for Boga will be beneficial to Chelsea, who has spent big money on the likes of Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell in the last few months.
