Fabrizio Romano has claimed on the ‘House of Champions’ podcast that many players still want to join Chelsea this summer.

This is despite the dire run of form the club finds themselves in right now.

They are currently in a patch of form which includes two wins in 17 games, and isn’t showing any signs of getting better soon.

Their most recent outing was arguably the most infuriating for supporters. The Blues were defeated 2-0 against close rivals Tottenham.

Those who attend matches have made their feelings known about the manager, Graham Potter.

Calls for him to be sacked have been far and wide, although it has been reported that is not on the owners’ agenda just yet.

Best players still want to join Chelsea

There may be fears amongst the fanbase that with the current man in charge, their ability to spend big in the transfer window may be affected.

However, Romano has claimed that this won’t be the case at this stage.

He said: “Chelsea will be busy on many positions this summer and many players still want to join this summer as they expect Chelsea to be big in the future.

“Chelsea are going to take some time to see the price tag of strikers, who the manager is and who the right fit is for the project before deciding on that number 9 player.“

The Blues are already set to add Malo Gusto and Christopher Nkunku to their ranks when the season ends, and they will no doubt look to spend big to strengthen elsewhere.

In order to meet Financial Fair Play, they are certainly going to have to sell too. This could mean a number of homegrown players, like Mason Mount and Conor Gallagher, could be on their way out of the club.
