�How about the Blues �
Chelsea always active on the market
Even though the transfer window closed, the Blues are already preparing for the winter one. The Evening Standard explains that they are still targeting two players they wanted this summer. The London club offered no less than €50m for Edson Alvarez, who even skipped training to join Chelsea, but Ajax Amsterdam refused because the timing did not allow them time to find a replacement. The 24-year-old Mexican defensive midfielder, who is also capable of playing in central defense, is the Blues' priority and they are also keen on Romeo Lavia (Southampton) and Ibrahim Sangare (PSV Eindhoven). Chelsea has also made unsuccessful attempts to sign Russian talent Arsen Zakharyan (19). Chelsea was prepared to raise the player's €15m release clause and had held talks with Dynamo Moscow, but was hampered by economic sanctions linked to the war in Ukraine. Unable to transfer the transfer funds to Russia, Thomas Tuchel's team will be working over the next few months to find a solution.
