£42m striker, Ibrahimovic, England U21 ace and more Chelsea transfer rumours

first_img 5. Antoinne Griezmann (Atletico Madrid) – It seems this rumour will only perish if Chelsea actually complete the deal. Griezmann was heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in the summer, and reports claim that he remains firmly on the Blues’ radar. With the Frenchman remaining Atleti’s biggest attacking threat, it’s little wonder their interest lives on. 6 6 6. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) – With 17 goals in the Bundesliga this season so far, it’s unsurprising that Aubameyang has been linked with a transfer to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea, though, are not the only Premier League club interested, with Arsenal and Manchester United said to be considering an offer. According to reports, the Gabon international will cost a minimum of £42million, which could price Chelsea out of any deal – that is unless they sell one of their prized assets. 1. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Paris Saint-Germain) – click the arrow above to see more Chelsea transfer rumours – Ibrahimovic’s current deal at the Parc des Princes expires next summer, leaving the Swede eligible to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with a new club in January. And, according to reports, he is considering an offer from the reigning English champions. Mourinho is said to be keen on luring the striker to Stamford Bridge and has put a deal on the table. At the age of 34, it seemed the Premier League would miss out on the decorated forward, but if there’s one man capable of bringing him to England, it could be Mourinho. 4. Saido Berahino (West Bromwich Albion) – With Diego Costa becoming an increasing problem for Mourinho, and Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao simply not trusted to deliver the goods, Berahino has emerged as a target for the Blues. Reports claim the club are considering a £20million bid in January, but West Brom’s director of football Richard Garlick has insisted the England Under-21 striker is not for sale. 3. Alex Teixeira (Shakhtar Donetsk) – Teixeira recently revealed that negotiations have taken place with Chelsea and Juventus, suggesting he is looking to leave the Ukraine in the near future should a suitable offer come in. With 21 goals in 14 league appearances already, the 25-year-old is one of the hottest properties in Europe and would add to the growing Brazilian contingent in south west London. 6 6 6 6 2. Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich) – Manchester United were said to be have made a number of big-money bids for Germany international Muller in the summer, but the Red Devils had to settle for the one Bayern Munich star in Bastian Schweinsteiger. Now it seems Chelsea are interested in trying their luck. According to reports, Muller is the man Mourinho wants to replace Diego Costa – but as a player who often operates in the no.10 role, is he the attacker the Blues need? With Chelsea battling at the wrong end of the table, manager Jose Mourinho is expected to be busy spending Roman Abramovich’s money in the January transfer window.And following the bib drama involving Diego Costa at the weekend, a new striker seems to be a priority for the reigning Premier League champions.In light of this speculation, talkSPORT has taken a look at the latest rumours on Chelsea, with plenty of big-name players wanted to save the Blues from ending their season as it began.last_img read more
