Chelsea news LIVE: Latest transfer, takeover and Roman Abramovich updates


Good morning to Chelsea fans

Antonio Rudiger and Mateo Kovacic are both out of Chelsea’s tough clash with West Ham.

Rudiger is suffering with a groin problem, while Kovacic has ligament damage.

Thomas Tuchel confirmed: “For Sunday’s match, not back. Both of them not back. Also, no other injuries.”

Elsewhere, Juventus are reportedly hunting summer deals for THREE Chelsea stars.

Gazzetta claims Antonio Rudiger, Jorginho and Marcos Alonso are all wanted by Max Allegri.

Rudiger looks set to leave on a free transfer in July, while ageing Alonso and Jorginho are out of contract in 2023.

In other news, Thomas Tuchel has revealed that he is a big fan of both Lewis Hamilton and Serena Williams after the pair joined Sir Martin Broughton’s Chelsea bid.

Tuchel said: “I just heard it, I just got a briefing and heard that they are part of it (Broughton’s bid).

“I can tell you not more but I am a big admirer of both of them.”

Hamilton revealed that he’s got big plans for Chelsea if Broughton’s bid is successful.

The Brit declared: “Firstly, we are trying to acquire a team and move it forwards. This is a team, it’s all about the community.

“That’s what really makes a football team, it’s the people in and around it.

“They’ve been quite leading in their work in diversity and inclusivity and becoming more diverse and progressive.

“So it’s not that we’re associating ourselves with previous owners, our goal is to continue some of the work that they’ve already done and have even more of an impact and engage more with the community.”

And finally, Tuchel can’t get his head round Chelsea’s poor home form recently.

Tuchel said: “It’s unusual and I don’t know what it is.

“If it was just the one thing, we would switch dressing rooms or take another hotel.

“But that would maybe be more superstition than anything else.

“I have no solution but it’s also not the level that we want to produce in home games. It’s a bit fragile at the moment.”
