Report: Chelsea make bids for two midfielders; available for a combined £27million


Chelsea have launched a double bid for Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Milan Badelj, according to reports from Haber7’N and Calcio Mercato respectively.

Premier League side Chelsea have most certainly enjoyed a very fruitful campaign so far under the tutelage of new manager Antonio Conte and it does look like the Italian has turned the Blues into title contenders once again.

Chelsea are currently on a brilliant five match winning streak in the Premier League and more impressively, the Blues have managed to score 16 and concede none during their fantastic winning run.

Nonetheless, the competition in the Premier League this season is fiercer than it has ever been and Conte is certainly not a man who will be complacent despite his side’s wonderful run of form.

As a result, the 47-year-old is widely expected to be strengthening his squad during the upcoming January transfer window and due to the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Oscar and John Obi Mikel set to leave Stamford Bridge, bringing in a couple of midfielders will surely be a priority for the Chelsea boss.

Now according to reports emerging out of Turkey and Italy, claims have been made that Chelsea have already started off their pursuit to bolster their midfield lineup by making concrete bids for the duo of Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Milan Badelj.

Çalhanoğlu is currently plying his trade for Bayer Leverkusen and according to Turkish outlet Haber7’N, Chelsea are already said to have entered negotiations for the 22-year-old, with the German side allegedly demanding around £17 million for their prized asset.

Badelj is another player whom Chelsea have made an offer for (if reports from the Calcio Mercato are to be believed) and a bid of around £10 million is likely to see the Blues lure the Croatian international away from Fiorentina.


  1. I think Oscar should stay and fight for his place , he needs motivation and another chance to prove himself. I still have faith in Oscar. As for Mikel , Ivanovic and Terry, they should pave way for young players coz nothing last forever

  2. Mikel, ivanoic and john terry have served chelsea but now they have passed their primes. They should be allowed to go and others that are better be allowed in. John terry cannot be around for ever you may not like that I said that

  3. Oscar useless, fabregas a waste, now that kante and matic have taken over a strong midfield we do not need attackers that cannot attack again. We do not need oscar s work rate in helping defense and useless in attack creativity and goal scoring. Fabregas, lazy in defending and cannot run only to send passes. We need real attackers, potent goal poachers, yes payet of west ham, verrati of psg, dembele of Celtic and some promising youth players like Isaiah brown and that one that look like batsuayi s head. Mikel, Ivanovic and john terry
