Welcome to the regular round up of the potential arrivals and departures at Stamford Bridge this coming summer as the transfer window looks set to be an eventful one.
First up is a re-visit to a name we have reported a few times over the last couple of weeks, a certain Brazilian special talent who is being compared with Neymar. This man is Fluminense attacker Kenedy. All possible press outlets in the UK and around the world are stating that Chelsea are in the lead to capture his signature and have the advantage of former player Deco being the players agent.
The fee being spoke about is around £6 million and the 19-year-old will almost certainly be loaned out by Chelsea right away in a move that has been regular at Stamford Bridge over the last few years. Kenedy is highly rated in Brazil as the next huge talent coming through the ranks and has featured heavily for the youth National side.
Another player who has been mentioned a lot and is thought to be a main priority this summer is Inter striker Mauro Icardi. Once again there are fresh rumours circulating after the player has turned down the latest contract offer from the Serie A side, once again opening up a move to Stamford Bridge. He is another sought after young talent and certainly someone who Chelsea would like to bring there.
Finally, Oscar is still being spoken about as a highly possible departure with a number of clubs abroad fighting for his signature with nothing being dismissed at Chelsea’s end. And Mo Salah is also likely to join Fiorentina permanently in a deal for around £10 million after enjoying a successful loan spell in Italy.
