Chelsea have yet to make a transfer so far this summer, but their links to some big Premier League names are getting hotter and hotter.
Nick Purewal today wrote about the links to Raheem Sterling, Raphinha and Richarlison. He said that Chelsea are “unlikely” to sign all three, but are still conducting parallel negotiations so that they can accelerate the signings of whichever ones they end up with.
Quick moves on Raheem Sterling underline the #ChelseaFC aims not to hang around on transfers. The #CFC bosses also thought to want to press interest in both Richarlison and Raphinha. Unlikely to sign all three, but conducting parallel negotiations could accelerate business

Now that conclusion is pretty obvious of course, but it’s interesting to hear it even just in terms of the way that it conforms that we ARE making serious moves for all three.
The Sterling links have already been confirmed by a lot of top sources – the others not so much. In those cases, it looked more like our name was just being thrown in to widen the net of clicks.
Maybe this is a sign that all three have serious merit after all?
