Hello and welcome along to Friday’s football.london Chelsea news and transfer news live blog, keeping you right up to date with all the very latest news from Stamford Bridge.
The Blues, who will lock horns with Championship side Peterborough United in their first match since winning the UEFA Champions League back in May at their Cobham training base tomorrow, are now just a month away from their Premier League opener against Crystal Palace.
At this moment in time, the Blues are yet to complete their first signing of this summer’s window, meaning head coach Thomas Tuchel has still not made a single addition to his squad since replacing Frank Lampard back in January.
But although the frustrations of some supporters are beginning to mount, Chelsea are working hard behind the scenes to try and get new additions through the door, with Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland their main focus.
The Blues are desperate to bolster their attacking options with the Norway international, but a deal is seemingly proving difficult to pull off.
Elsewhere, defender Marc Guehi is very close to sealing a permanent move to Crystal Palace.
With that in mind, be sure to stay with us for all the very latest from Stamford Bridge. Refresh the blog below for all the latest throughout the day.
