Chelsea Flag

While transfer deadline day passed without anymore signings for Chelsea, it was overall a good transfer window for Frank Lampard’s side.

The Blues spent more money than anyone in Europe this summer and they got most of their business done early.

Having saved up funds after two transfer windows of no new players and sales of nearly £200m, Chelsea were in a relatively advantageous financial position in the market compared to basically every other team, all of whom were hit to some extent by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Transfer News: Chelsea Enter The Mauro Icardi Bidding War

Mauro Icardi

Chelsea are reportedly in the hunt for Mauro Icardi, as PSG struggle to agree a permanent transfer for the on loan striker with his parent club Inter Milan.

The Argentina international joined the Ligue 1 champions, awarded the 2019-20 title after the season in France was cancelled last month, on a season-long-loan at a cost of €13m, scoring 20 goals in 31 competitive games. PSG had an option to make the loan permanent for €70m.

With Edinson Cavani leaving on a free transfer, PSG are keen to do a deal but don’t want to pay the full price, and had an offer of €50m plus €10m in bonuses rejected by Inter last week, who want the full price for the Argentina international.
