PL Transfer Targets Summer 2010 Chelsea
Prefer Pato, Aguero, Villa, Torres but Balotelli could be a good signing.
Deco, Belletti, Ferreira and Malouda OUT Definitely
Joe Cole, Ashley Cole, Kalou, Anelka OUT Possibly
DECO: The options; RVDV, Mata, Silva, Dzagoev, Pjanic, Teixeira, Kaka, Alcantara, Danny, Hernanes
Its no secret that Chelsea are chasing RVDV, question is will RVDV give a poor showing here too. Teixeira, Dzagoev and Pjanic are young, but we could certainly use their youth, and with Lampard ageing signing two of them, but only bringing one to the Bridge for now is certainly not out of the question. Mata and Silva are certainly in the mix but there will be a lot of competition for their signatures. Kaka is th dark horse, he almost joined Chelsea in 2005, is a good mate of Carlo and is unhappy and unproductive at RM. Thiago Alcantara would be good, but I’d rather him to come in a few years, maybe a loan ? Danny would be a good signing but perhaps not quite as good as David Silva or Kaka. Hernanes is supposedly one of the most promising footballers in the world, and he may be a good signing.
MALOUDA: options; di Maria, Mata, Urreta, Ki, Hazard
di Maria is the obvious choices, but again there will be war for his signature. Mata is a good proposition with his left wing experience. I like Urreta and he would be great alongside Kakuta or di Maria but he’s probably a 2012 signing. Ki Sung–Yueng is talented and would be a boon for Chelsea merch sales in Korea. Hazard has been very impressive but I think we’d face a stiff fight from AW for him.
BELLETTI and FERREIRA: the options; S Taylor, M Mancienne, N Subotic, D Luiz
Mancienne is the cheapest option, with Taylor estimated at about 9 million and considerably more for Subotic, this may come down to price. D Luiz however is probably the best option.
JOE COLE; Options; Schwiensteiger, Stoch, Assulin
Schweinsteiger is the ideal replacement for Ballack but he could also replace Joe Cole, making Stoch the probable pick, its a shame Maxi went to Liverpool then he would have been ideal. Gai Assulin would be a great get but we are competing with AFC for him.
ASHLEY COLE: Options: Vargas, Dani Alves
Vargas is the only real option I see, i hope we don’t loose Ashley, though Vargas is good. Alves obvioulsy plays on the right and is not a real option to replace Ashley, but could be part of swap deal with Barca for Ashley
ANELKA: Options: Villa, Pato, Aguero, Gomis, Lacina Traore, Torres, Balotelli
Villa is expensive and ageing but good, Pato seems destined to one day join Chelsea, Aguero should if he stops mucking us about, Bafetimbi ‘Little Drogba’ Gomis is strong talented and young, while Lacina Traore at 6'8 would obviously help us maintain our size advantage. Torres and Balotelli are outside chances but good ones.
KALOU: Options: Nilmar, Morimoto, Neymar
Morimoto is a bright young star in Serie A, and would blast our Japanese Merch sales into the stratosphere. Villreal’s cash crisis may see Nilmar move to the Bridge, which would be a good move. Neymar; it seems to be a lot of money to me but there is a fair bit of talk about him.
Youth Striker: Lukaku, and potentially Christian Eriksen as well.
GK: Igor Akinfeev is now probably a highly probable signing given Hilario’s recent performances, a fight between him and Cech for the No1 spot would be a good problem to have.
