In today’s Chelsea transfer news – Mauricio Pochettino will rival Arsenal for TWO English strikers, an update on Marc Cucurella & much more.

Chelsea transfer news – Mauricio Pochettino interested in Ollie Watkins

According to a claim from Football Transfers, Mauricio Pochettino is prepared to battle with Arsenal for the signing of Ollie Watkins. It’s assumed that the Argentine manager is tired of his attacking options who have not served him this season, so he seeks some firepower with Watkins on his shortlist.

Ironically, the 27-year-old Aston Villa forward scored the winning goal against Chelsea in their recent Premier League outing. This further demonstrates that he has what it takes to be a reliable goal scorer and get on the score sheet when it matters most.

Chelsea transfer news – Chelsea willing to offer players for Ivan Toney

Another striker who Chelsea are willing to compete with Arsenal for is Ivan Toney. They have been interested in the Brentford striker, who is currently serving a ban, for some time now.

According to a report from 90min, both clubs are willing to offers players and cash to convince the Bees to part ways with Toney. This is after we revealed yesterday that Brentford were prepared to sign a new striker in January, hence suggesting they may wish to prepare for life without Toney.

Chelsea transfer news – Marc Cucurella wants to leave

The Top Flight reported yesterday that Spain defender Marc Cucurella had informed Mauricio Pochettino of his decision to leave the club. After he failed to secure a move away to Manchester United in the summer, he would still like to depart the club as soon as possible.

After falling further down the pecking order, it’s unlikely that Mauricio Pochettino would block his transfer away from Stamford Bridge.
