Taison’s move to Chelsea seems imminent

1) Taison to Chelsea :

Source: · According to source, transfer takes place in: Summer
Chelsea are poised to bring in 24-year-old Brazilian striker Taison to bolster their attack as misfiring striker Fernando Torres continues to falter. Taison, who plays as an attacking midfielder for Ukrainian side Metalist Kharkiv, was invited to Stamford Bridge to watch the tepid 0-0 draw with Fulham and to thrash out a deal which would see the player join the club for around £10m in January. It is also rumoured that he has received a work permit to play in England.

2) Baines to Chelsea :

Chelsea have joined Manchester United and Paris St-Germain as the leading clubs who are considering a move for the Everton and England left-back Leighton Baines, who is valued at around £15m by his club. Nothing really groundbreaking has happened in this rumour, but Chelsea are reported to be looking at replacements for Ashley Cole – Baines being a major contender.

3) Willian to Chelsea :

The Blues boss has identified 22-year-old Shakhtar star as one of his next big-money targets. Chelsea have been quietly keeping tabs on Willian since he helped the Ukranian side win the 2009 UEFA Cup and they are now set to step up their interest after watching him star during Shakhtar’s run to the Champions League quarter-finals. Former Barca boss Pep Guardiola (who is linked to Chelsea) has also placed Willian at the top of his wishlist. Plus, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and Michael Emenalo are said to be impressed with Willian’s performances against Chelsea in the Champions League.

Hugo Almeida has excelled this season however, the Istanbul giants lack a viable alternative.The club is estimated to be in debt to tune €80-€100 million, a problem chairman Fikret Orman has made his priority to resolve.The Black Eagles have been forced to change their transfer policy which has suffered from years of mismanagement and over spending.Beşiktaş have been attracting young talents recently with the promise of first team football. Piazon joined Chelsea from Sao Paulo for €7.5 million during the summer transfer window. The 18-year-old Brazilian striker has played once in the Premier League this season.

What do you think? Should Chelsea allow Marin and Piazon to go out on loan? Should Lampard be resigned or let to leave the club in the summer? Should we sign Baines, Willian or Taison? Let us know in the comments!


  1. Siamkele Thompson says

    I would say that Chelsea should let Piazon and Marin go out on loan to experience first team football. This will be good for both players as they would grow mentally and physically. And yes let Lampard resign, but offer him a management position in the club, so that he can keep that Chelsea culture in the team alive, and guide the young players as they still wet behind the ears in terms of playing Chelsea football. And yes, let Chelsea buy Willian, his a phenomenal player and surely in the future he will be one of the legends that will keep Chelsea going and making sure that the club remains successful.

  3. Jonas says

  4. mark Letouze says

William & Tiasson would be good signings Baines be good if ashley cole leaves

  5. branth says

    Marin should go on loan, PIazon should stay cause we need more strikers, and i hope they bring Taison should come, he and Oscar have a history together and RA should give Lampard a new contract, he is a legend and one of Chelsea back bone # LetsgoChelseafc

  6. Alonge babatunde says

    Bring in more players to help d club performance.

  7. Mustapha rasak olamilekan says

  8. webber anak maght munau says

    better buy that willian and taison and let marin and paizon go out for loan…if comfirm buy that w & t, maybe next time can buy neymar coz their having braziilian players and firend..About lampard…better keep on clud for legend…

  9. Anonymous says

    Coach Rafa Benitez, don’t think more on buying, try to make combinations for the players you have.

  10. Lanre says

    It high time chelsea started playing their youngsters instead of loaning them out. McEachran could have moved into first team by now if he had been given sufficient chance. Why spend so much on the youth team and not use them? How many youth players has actually moved into chelsea first team? Marin should stay and help rotate our wingers, Piazon might not be physically strong enough yet to strike in the EPL, Willian and Baines would be a fantastic addition to the squad. Lampard should prove himself a true legend by accepting pay-cut to stay put. And until Roman decides to employ a good manager and be patient, no matter what players we have, we would remain in this vicious cycle of inconsistent form.

  11. Holuhemwai says

    Taison nd willian are good players and wud be a gud additns to d team,lampard shud b allowed to leave in d summer bt ashley cole shud b offered a new contract..marin shud stay,wyl paizon shud b loaned to a premiership side..

  12. Terry venebles says

    In my own oppioun i will say that chelsea as a club should sign william,Baines,&Leandro Damioa. & I wont chelsea bring the spainish under 21 Ike Muniaim to the club too to bloster our attake & will need more strikers and wingers too. And that is all we need if we re to win at list 3 trophies this season.

  13. Layefa Alexander says

    Let Lampard remains in d club is one of our legend in chelsea

  14. Anonymous says

    Yes, let them go, loan them back & bring willian, taison nd bains if possible wit the likeness of rodriques

  15. Kevin Wamalwa says

    Let Piazon and Marin go out for loan for more experience but dont let Lampard leave.Go for Taison and William

  16. chelseadiehardfan says

    in my opinion, chelsea should buy baines and fellaini… lampard should go for management…. please… sell benayoun, malouda, fererra…. we dont need any additional striker… we already have Ba, Torres, Piazzon and de Bruine. call them back from loan and used them…. example man u didn’t loan their chicarito even he is still young… with 4-2-3-1 formation, it should be enough with 4 strikers…. and don’t forget… moses also have ability to play as CF if needed… give de Bruine and Piazon chance to play because they are still young and talented! use them in second half…! we have too many talented AM…. Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Moses, Marin… use them! try to rotate them because all of them aretalented and useful…. please benitez…. u should know how to fully utilised your player’s ability… there’s no need additional AM… without legend lampard, injured romeu and absence mikel, we need to buy someone like fellaini / modric to replace lampard… ashley cole n JT maybe leaving the club… we need someone like Baines and Ramos to replace them… or maybe Gerard pique…

  17. Henry Adu Gyamfi says

    Willian ,Taison and LB are very good but if we are not ready to bring them in,there is no need to let AC3 go but Willian,Taison coming and marin and Lucas going on loan is better.

  18. Oluwaseun Adetayo says

    Chelsea should sign baines, william, taison and one striker. Blues 4 life.

  19. abubakar o samuel says

    may sign taison,baines,williams

  20. robben16 says

    Chelsea do not have to sell or loan players because at the moment, they lack of players in the squad. So, Chelsea just need to buy players. Taison is required player at the moment but whether he can play in the Europa league or not. For Baines and William, I think Chelsea just have to buy them in the upcoming season. Chelsea just need to buy a striker and defensive midfielder who can play in a Europa League only.

  21. Tom carew says

    Lampard would be the best signing we could make.the way he conducts himself on and off pitch should be an example to everyone who pulls on a Chelsea shirt. Lamps and jt heartbeat of Chelsea f.c.

  22. Aondoakura christopher says

    Chelsea sign williams,baines nd fellani.marin nd piazon should nt be sent on loan

  23. Anonymous says

    chelsea should sign willian and forget about taison and the rest

  24. Kobbyhans says

    Am sure we will sign at least another player before the transfer closes.

  25. Anonymous says

    I cant question chelsea for keeping a policy of offloading aged players as it happend to Drogba,but equivalent replacements in d likes of baines 4 Asly,wilian or Fellani or Taison or Modric 4 lampard,etc shld b made.but dont let dem go without replacing dem,else dissaster may set in in d club.i luv d Blues!

  26. Kobbyhans says

    Sign both him and Isco.

  27. Moigong Davido Dungwim says

    Blues is always the colour,I want Roman Abramovic and Rafael Benitez to try their best and sign the following players”Radamel Falcau,Taison,Leighton Baines,Maroune Fellaini and Willian immediately please,because any delay is dangerous,so let them be very sharp and smart in Doing their things abeg.I remain chelsea till eternity.

  28. Emma says

    Chelsea should let Lampard go and sign Baines, willian or Taison becoz Lampard is old, what the club need is young plays.

  29. Samuel says

    With Williams Lampart can go and Ashely Cole to to be revisited.

  30. Snowhite Obi says

    It will be EXTREMELY GOOD for Chelsea to let Marin and Piazon out on Loan…but let it be an English clubs,so they could learn more about the EPL. Willian is a WORLD-CLASS player,I wonder why Chelsea have been wasting time on signing Willian. He’s the new Ronaldinho. Willian is the only player who’s by far better than Mata, Silver, Iniesta etc. Willian is just 22,and I believe he will win World-Best before he gets to 25. Chelsea are very good at beating around the bush when it comes to buying good players,that’s what they did to Kun Aguero of Man-City. Willian can also play as a stricker,and always returning to get the ball.

  31. Snowhite Obi says

    Lampard is very good,but he can’t play forever,he’s 34, and now is the best time to buy a replacement for Lampard. Over the years,Man-United have always had the best attack in the EPL. Its time for Chelsea to do the same,cos FIFA only knows teams with skillful players and can score goals,thats why they are in love with Barca and Spainish Clubs. Willian, Taison, and Fellaini are a MUST BUY for Chelsea,if we want to keep competing and winning trophies. Marin and Piazon should go on loan.

  32. adegbola oluwaseyi steven says

    as chelsea fan, i want lampard to go,& marin, piazon, to stay when chelsea most sign feillani william & taison, up CFC

  33. comr.godsgift c.abusemieka says

    Williams, taison and baines.Dis three persons chelsea need them so much. So pls sing three of them.

  34. Uba Bankman says

    I think chelsea should let marko marin stay cos he still have a lot to play in chelsea and should be allow to.

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due

    to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

  37. Uba BankMan says

    I don’ think chelsea should let marko marin on loan, all i thought they’ll do is feature him in matches instead of keeping him as substitute
