Chelsea ‘remain’ keen on Premier League ace and winger eyed by Italian outfit

The latest Chelsea news and rumours on Friday

Chelsea boss Graham Potter has to wait a little while before taking charge of his first Premier League match in charge of the Blues.

Their next league clash is scheduled for 1st October away at Crystal Palace.

They drew 1-1 at home to RB Salzburg in the Champions League earlier this week.

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

Winger still wanted

Chelsea winger Hakeem Ziyech is still apparently a wanted man over in Italy.

He moved to Stamford Bridge back in 2020 from Ajax but hasn’t quite lived up to expectations yet.

According to TuttoMeractoWeb (Via Milan News), AC Milan are ‘still keen’ on signing him despite failing to do so over the summer.

West Ham man remains a target

The Blues are still believed to want West Ham ace Declan Rice, despite Thomas Tuchel’s departure.

He has been a key player for the Hammers over recent years and is now an established England international with 32 caps under his belt.

Journalist Dean Jones has told GiveMeSport: “Thomas Tuchel’s departure won’t really affect Chelsea’s vision of signing Declan Rice.

“There are still people that remain within the club that are set on going for Declan Rice when the time arrives.”

Goalkeeper’s stance on future

Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has insisted he is happy at Chelsea.

The Spanish stopper was linked with a potential departure in the last window.

He has told El Larguero (via Inside Futbol): “There were things but the club always had their faith in me. They always wanted me to be part of their squad.

“We analysed the situation and I am happy to stay and be at this club.
