Chelsea boss Graham Potter has moved a star who admits to holding talks with West Ham and Newcastle amid allegations by Benoit Badiachel.
There is only a week left until the January transfer window, and for Premier League rivals West Ham, Newcastle United and Chelsea there are very different reasons why they need to plunge into the winter market.
Potter hasn’t been able to wave a magic wand at Stamford Bridge just yet with Chelsea languishing in eighth place. Given the sudden nature of his arrival following the sudden sacking of Thomas Tuchel, Potter will want to bring his players to the club.
Like Chelsea, West Ham have spent big in the summer – amassing £170m in eight signings but struggling just one point out of the bottom three.
Newcastle are having a great season under Eddie Howe and are currently sitting in a distant third spot making some very smart signings.
West Ham and Newcastle have been linked by common interests in a group of players since taking over the Magpies.
Such was the case when both clubs offered Monaco defender Benoit Badiachel in January (Teamtalk). Moyes and Howe’s interest was ignored by Monaco and speculation continued into the summer.
Badiashel later admitted that he dreamed of playing in the Premier League and had held informal talks with West Ham and Newcastle when they were bidding for his services.
He said: “I made some contact with English clubs (in January), but this was just an informal contact.” France target.
“For me, the Premier League is the best league. So, naturally, I dream about it.”
Now Chelsea boss Potter has moved on to the superstar who admits to holding talks with West Ham and Newcastle amid the Badiashell allegations.
according to proverbs the athlete And the Sky SportsChelsea wants to sign a new central defender from the left side in January, with West Ham and Newcastle the main candidate Badiachel.
West Ham and Newcastle have both signed other Ligue 1 defenders after Monaco beat them to Badiachel.
The Hammers paid Naif Ajord £30m from Rennes while Newcastle landed Sven Putman from Lille for a similar figure.
Injury has largely kept Agwerd out of the West Ham squad but he has shown his class with his World Cup brilliance.
Bothman was an inspiration at Newcastle. So Moyes and Howe won’t lose much sleep over Chelsea now switching for the player they both want.
One disturbing aspect of Chelsea’s potential deal for Badiachel, however, is the fact that they may be able to get him for as little as the £33-35m that Newcastle and West Ham are allegedly willing to pay.
