The Pride of London offer views and insight following the claim that a high profile Premier League player is a top transfer target for Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea. Meanwhile, highly rated centreback Benoit Badiashile is happy to be back playing for the Blues.
PoL took a look at TalkSPORT’s gossip page. In the piece, it is claimed that Aaron Ramsdale is emerging as a priority for Pochettino. I feel that the Arsenal goalkeeper would be a superior choice over Robert Sanchez.
It is said that the Blues are aware that prising Ramsdale away mid-season would be tough. However, CFC will push hard for the stopper in the summer.
Next, let’s hear from Chelsea defender Benoit Badiashile
The ultimate defensive hope at Stamford Bridge is for Benoit Badiashile and Axel Disasi to re-form a sublime partnership and take it to the next level. I imagine that having a fit Reece James and Ben Chilwell firing in all cylinders are the next pieces of the puzzle at the back for Pochettino. That is, if the CFC boss effectively wishes for a four-man defence. With that quartet at your disposal – which manager wouldn’t?! And that sentiment especially applies after recent comments from Thiago Silva.
Badiashile is particularly pleased to be among his colleagues at full training and out on the field of play again. The 22-year-old described his own absence as a ‘difficult period’, as is often the case for professional athletes. Happily, the imposing player returned for the ideal scenario of Blackburn Rovers in the English Football League Cup in midweek.
Even more impressively than helping the west Londoners complete a 2-0 victory, Badiashile netted a goal in his comeback game. After being out for just under half a year, this is a milestone for the Frenchman. Following the final whistle against Blackburn, the defender declared his happiness at helping the side win.
