Transfer Targets

Yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of Roman Abramovich buying the Blues. Today we look at who the club have been linked with so far in this transfer window.

Edison Cavani. Need anymore be said? The man has just showed his talents in the Confederations Cup. His two goals and impressive all round display against the Italians left us Chelsea fans drooling over the possibility that he could be linking up with Lampard and co next season. Rumors suggest Abramovich is unwilling to pay the £54 million demanded by Napoli for Seria A’s top goalscorer last term. Napoli club president Aurelio De Laurentiis  has made it clear that the club are under no pressure to sell the Uruguayan. He said: “If someone wants to buy Cavani, they must pay 63million euros, net. Not one euro less than 63million euros. Otherwise we will be happy to keep Cavani, he has a contract until 2017.” It is yet to be seen whether or not the club will stump up the extra cash – and break the British transfer record –  to sign Cavani but it is a transfer saga which looks set to continue for the time being.

Another big name to be linked with the club already this summer is Manchester United and England star Wayne Rooney. Rooney has made it clear that he wants out of Old Trafford after nine years with the reigning Premier League Champions. New Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is a long term admirer of the forward and with only a £20 million price tag over Rooney’s head it is expected that the Blues will make a move. Arsenal and PSG are also said to be interested and are currently monitoring the player’s situation like ourselves.

The last player we will look at is Marco Van Ginkel. The Vitesse Arnhem midfielder has met with Jose Mourinho and is due to return to the Dutch club to have a meeting regarding his future. The player – who is on the fringe of the Dutch national side – is believed to be valued at around £8 million. The player made his debut for his current club in April 2010, having joined the club in 1999 when he was only seven years old.

With the transfer window now officially open, we can hope to see some of these – and other rumours – gather pace and see the club add more signings following the £18 million arrival of Andre Schurrle from Bayer Leverkusen.
