re: Chelsea 2019/2020 Season Long Thread | Ziyech Official
I'm not going to panic until the window closes, but unless something materializes quickly, it isn't looking good for us. Spurs have bought Gedson Fernandes, Steven Bergwijn and made Lo Celso permanent. United looks like they're closing in on Bruno Fernandes. Even Sheffield has made a couple of purchases.

Meanwhile, our two known targets are Cavani, who has already chosen Atletico, and Piatek, who Spurs seem to have a lead on.

I don't want to make any rash purchases that will prevent us from going after main targets in the summer, but at the very least we need another warm body up top.

Doesn’t look encouraging. If we don’t make any moves, what was the point of the appeal and getting the ban lifted?

i do really like that the club are positioning themselves as a fail safe loan option should one of the Cavani/Madrid and Piatek/Spurs deals fall through, which is likely.

Wouldnt be surprised if they are working on Jovic loan deal as well. that would be best case scenario, imo. I was really impressed with Jovic, tho some reddit rumors made it sound like he has a shite attitude.

all that said, would be a huge failure if nothing happens.

Lot of smoke around Chelsea trying to sign Mertens from Sky and various other Italian reporters.

Very cool of Chelsea to get the transfer ban overturned, then not sign anyone!

It was the principle of the matter apparently.

Well after the disappointment of the dead transfer window it was good to get a point at Foxes today. But our best defender scored both goals which is cause for concern. Gotta get Pulisic healthy soon to pressure defenses.

Everyone knows we overpaid for kepa (thanks thibault) but can we please be done with the willie caballero experiment now? Wish we would have kept bulka instead of him.

Sky reporting this now

Chelsea are in advanced talks to sign Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and a £38m deal is likely to be completed in days.

Goddamnit. I’m legitimately jealous over this. He seemed like the perfect guy for Tottenham to go after considering the price tag. Granted we have bigger areas of concern at the moment, but I’m convinced he’s a sure fire difference maker. And absolutely a steal at that price.

If he has to go to a club in London that isn’t Tottenham, I’m definitely glad it’s yinz and not arsenanal.

Don't want to get too hyped into this yet hopefully doesn't end up being an average schurrle type

He's better than Schurrle ever was. So happy we've officially got it done. Didn't want to worry someone else would steal him at the last second.
