Chelsea man attracting ‘attention’ and Potter hoping first-team player is back for Crystal Palace trip next Sunday in the Premier League.

Graham Potter will be eager to show what he can do on the big stage after taking over at Chelsea.

The 47-year-old has done well at all previous club Ostersunds, Swansea City and Brighton and Hove Albion.

He takes charge of his first league game with the Blues next weekend away at Crystal Palace.

Here is a look at the latest news coming out of the club...

Winger attracting interest

Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic is reportedly attracting interest from Italy.

He will be looking forward to representing USA at the World Cup in Qatar this winter.

As per Italian news outlet TuttoMercato, Juventus are paying ‘attention’ to the player’s situation at Stamford Bridge heading into the January transfer window.

Injury latest

The Blues plan to have goalkeeper Edouard Mendy back fit for their trip to Crystal Palace.

He has been out of action recently with an ongoing knee problem.

However, his side are ‘hopeful’ that he will be fit for the match at Selhurst Park next Sunday, as detailed in a report by Football London.

Gordon update

Everton attacker Anthony Gordon was a player heavily linked with Chelsea over the summer.

The youngster ended up staying with the Toffees beyond the transfer deadline.

Journalist Paul Brown believes the Blues will reignite their interest in him though and has said, as per CaughtOffside:

“If he has a brilliant few months, you can guarantee that Spurs, Chelsea and possibly other teams will be sniffing around because they know from his advisors that Gordon is not about to sign a new long-term deal tomorrow with Everton.”
