Which Italian player will be the next to join Chelsea?
01.02.2017 06:37:49 With the club having only one Serie A team left, it is understandable that fans would be expecting a few big names to be signed this summer.
There are certainly many talented players on the list, and this article will try and identify them in order to predict the future of the club.
We have selected three names that we think have a decent chance of signing for Chelsea: Andrea Pirlo, Mario Mandzukic and Giorgio Chiellini.
01.01.2017 07:18:16 Andrea Pirozzi is one of the most talented and versatile midfielders in the game.
A highly-rated signing from Fiorentina, the Italian midfielder is already a household name in Italy and his performances for the Serie A champions have earned him the nickname “The Italian Messi”.
However, despite his international experience, Pirozzini is yet to make a significant impact at Stamford Bridge, as he has yet to get on the scoresheet for the club and has only scored two goals in his 21 appearances for Chelsea this season.
Pirozani has also not been named as a player to be included in the Juventus squad to face Real Madrid, a decision that has been met with criticism from the Bianconeri fans.
Pirlos contract expires in 2018, and with Chelsea wanting to sign another player, we would expect Pirozi to stay at the club in the near future.
01.12.2017 05:55:24 Mario Mandzo has been a regular part of the Chelsea squad since the beginning of his career, and has been linked with a move to the club many times over.
The centre-back has been in and out of the starting XI since his debut in 2003, and he was considered a top-tier centre-half at Juventus, although the Italian giants decided to sell him to Manchester City for a record fee of £32.5 million in 2012.
In 2015, Mandzo signed a two-year deal with Roma, which was subsequently cut short after being diagnosed with a severe case of lung cancer.
He played in the Champions League for Juventus, but was never a regular at the Etihad Stadium, as the Italian champions decided to play him at the back.
However, Mandzucic was able to play regularly at centre-midfield for Roma, and while he struggled to find his best form, his versatility was recognised by Chelsea fans and he is now a regular starter in the team.
He has also featured for Italy at the Under-21 and Under-23 levels.
01-02-2017 19:30:46 Giorgios Chiello is a very talented player, and his versatility makes him one of a handful of players that can be used at either wing-back or centre-forward, as Chelsea have been looking to add a quality player of his own.
The Greek international has played in almost every Serie A club since he joined Fiorena in 2015, and is also a highly-regarded player in his homeland.
Chielli has been one of Chelsea’s most consistent players since his move to Stamford Bridge in 2011, as his performances have always been of the highest standard.
He was often named in the starting eleven for the majority of his appearances for the Blues, and was always a part of Chelsea side that has won the Champions Leagues.
The 20-year-old is a highly talented player and has shown that he is capable of playing in a number of positions in the centre of the pitch, but the club may not be ready to spend big money on him, as they have been linked to a number other players.
01-12-2017 07.37:17 Giorgiani Chiella has made the switch from Lazio to Chelsea for a total of around £22 million in 2017, but has been unable to hold down a regular place in the Chelsea side since.
He started his career at Lazio in 2015 and has since moved to Juventus for a massive £22.5m fee.
He is a former first-team player at Juventus and has spent his career there, scoring 17 goals in 72 appearances for both the Biancocelesti and the Serie C champions.
Chiesa is a versatile defender and can play on the right-wing, but his biggest strength is his defensive ability.
He can also play on either flank of the midfield, as Chieso has shown in his time at Chelsea.
He scored the winning goal in the Serie B last season and has a great ability to play in the final third.
01 – 12-2017 14:09:18 Giorgino Chielly has been signed from Fiores Serie B side Udinese for around £20 million, and the player is expected to feature regularly for the Biancolic side this season after his move from Laziero.
Chiel is a defensive midfielder and is often linked with the likes of Juventus, Juventus, Barcelona and Manchester
