Chelsea open Jorginho talks, Emerson makes transfer request, Arsenal eye Abraham

Chelsea are being tipped to sanction a number of moves both in and out of Stamford Bridge this summer to help Thomas Tuchel build on last season's Champions League success.

Tuchel guided the Blues to European glory just four months after replacing Frank Lampard in the hot-seat, beating Manchester City 1-0 in the Champions League final.

Now the German is keen to strengthen his squad with a number of reinforcements and clear out any deadwood before the 2021/22 campaign gets underway.

And with speculation surrounding the club heating up, we're on hand with the latest Chelsea news for you below.

Jorginho talks

This year has been a highly successful one so far for Jorginho, who played a key part in Chelsea's Champions League triumph before winning Euro 2020 with Italy earlier this month.

The midfielder only has two years remaining on his current Blues contract, but Fabrizio Romano claims talks are underway over a potential extension.

Romano revealed on his Here We Go podcast that Stamford Bridge officials are desperate for Jorginho to stay beyond 2023, although he admits an extension will "take some time".

Emerson submits transfer request

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, Emerson Palmieri has handed in a transfer request at Chelsea amid interest from clubs in Serie A.

Emerson fell out of favour in west London when Tuchel replaced Lampard, with the new boss instead preferring to deploy either Ben Chilwell or Marcos Alonso at left wing-back.

As a result, it is believed the Italy defender has asked to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, and Inter Milan, Napoli, Roma and Juventus have all been linked with a move.

Abraham to Arsenal?

Tammy Abraham is another Chelsea star who looks likely to depart the club this summer after being given the cold shoulder by Tuchel last season.

Much to the frustration of Blues fans, the 23-year-old academy graduate lost his place in attack and was even left out of their squad entirely for the FA Cup and Champions League finals.
