The Premier League’s summer transfer window is set to shut down (Thursday) and clubs within the country are engaging themselves in fast and serious deadlines, so as to get quality players before the window finally shut down.
Chelsea, who have been inactive since the start of the window, became lively on Wednesday as they broke world’s transfer record when they agreed to release £72m for Athletic Bilbao goaltender Kepa Arrizabalaga who is just 22 years old.
Today hasn’t been in an exception for the Blues as they continue to maintain their speedy dealings with different clubs for more signings. According to many rumours mongers, the Blues have reached an agreement with Real Madrid to capture Croatian midfielder Mateo Kovacic on loan ahead of next season.
However, they are also set to send some of their fringe players to another club on loan deal for regular actions in the 2018-19 season.
One of the players who might be out of Stamford Bridge on loan is Belgian star striker Michy Batshuayi as report claim that La Liga side Valencia are desperate for his signature.
According to Belgian pundit, Kristof Terre and Italian transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, Valencia are keen on getting Batshuayi on loan as they hope to improve their attacking threat in the coming season.
Though Batshuayi can be more reliable than Alvaro Morata as a lone striker, Maurizio Sarri seems to have put his trust on the Spaniard and Olivier Giroud to get the goals in the coming season.
Injury: Sarri, pleased with victory but gloomy over injured star player.
Chelsea is enjoying a successful campaign under Maurizio Sarri while they extended a winning run of form against Greek side PAOK on Thursday where Chelsea’s No.11 walked off the pitch in the late period of the game.
Albeit, they took the Lion’s share of possession and an early goal from Willian via a brilliant attack but they finished the game with what looked like Sarri wasn’t comfortable with.
The Spanish player was unable to endure with his injury sustained few minutes to the end of 90minutes from a collision with goalkeeper Alexandros Paschakalis, while Sarri had already made complete changes, he had to manage 10 men against PAOK afterwards.
Pedro posted on his Instagram page to pacify the nerves of his followers.
“Everything’s ok despite the incident at the end of the game. Come on Blues!”
While at the end of the match Sarri replied with response to Pedro’s status:
“I don’t know exactly the situation,” the Blues manager said.
The 59-year-old manager admitted that he wasn’t happy with the score-line but he was pleased with the three points.
Sarri’s men will travel to London to face West Ham on Thursday, a place where they struggled under Antonio Conte with a 1-nil defeat last season.

Loads of talent: will he join Chelsea or Liverpool next summer?
Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Liverpool sent scouts to watch Queen Park Rangers wonder kid Eberechi Eze.
Eze is in a brilliant form which skyrocketed the scouts to sit in observation as they watched him play against Millwall on Monday night at Loftus Road.
Eberechi stole the show while he scored in the very match that saw his team earned the much-needed victory.
The young star has been bright and impressive while playing behind the striker in the championship. Whilst his club was tipped to be listed among the relegated team this season, he has given QPR a dazzling hope of his conservative performance.
The diminutive, conservative and skilful player has entertained his fans with three goals which makes him a potential player to leave his current club sooner or rather than later.
On different club’s perspective; Chelsea is keen on adding young talents to their squad; Maurizio Sarri will be considered lucky with plenty options to pick from while Mauricio Pochettino is in need of attackers due to lack of extra legs in his team.
Liverpool have a host of brilliant talent but it will be very competitive for the QPR player to join with Saido Mane, Mo Salah, Daniel Sturridge, Divork Origi and co in a very tough role already mastered by Klopp’s triumvirate.
While Man City still have quality young players from the bench who are yet to stamp their shirt in Pep Guardiola’s radar.
For Eze to get a grip on any of the aforementioned club, he has to be very good.
