Chelsea’s ‘determination’ running out of patience

Chelsea FC has made a decision. They want to offload Connor Gallagher and Raheem Sterling and bring in RB Leipzig attacking midfielder Dani Olmo. 

According to Steve Kaye of Football Transfers, “Chelsea have opened talks with RB Leipzig about a possible summer move for Olmo. Chelsea will consider the departures of Gallagher and Sterling, and Olmo is seen as a suitable replacement to match their departures.” 

This season, Chelsea has struggled in the English Premier League (EPL). The Blues are 11th in the league with 39 points from 11 wins, 6 draws, and 10 losses. With the exception of Cole Palmer, the rest of the squad has struggled, especially Gallagher and Sterling, who are supposed to lead the attack. 

Gallagher returned to Chelsea last season after a good spell at Crystal Palace, where he spent the 2021-22 season on loan. However, last season was a disappointment. Gallagher scored just three goals and one assist in 35 games and was unable to prevent Chelsea’s downfall. This season, he hasn’t fared much better with two goals and five assists in 26 games. 

Sterling is also only half the player he was after his move from Manchester City. After scoring 13 goals and providing five assists in 30 games in 2021-22, Sterling scored just six goals and three assists in 28 games for Chelsea last season and has six goals and three assists in 25 games this season. It’s a disappointing record compared to expectations. 

Eventually, Chelsea’s patience ran out. After letting Gallagher and Sterling go at the end of the season, the Blues are set to sign Olmo. Olmo is a Spanish attacking midfielder. His main strengths are his smooth ball control and precise fundamentals. He is a very active player and is good at playmaking. 

Olmo is a former Barcelona youth player. He moved to Dinamo Zagreb from Barcelona’s La Masia, where he played in the first team from the second half of the 2014-15 season. He then joined Leipzig in the 2020 winter transfer window. 

After settling in with three goals and one assist in 12 games in his first season at Leipzig, Olmo hit his stride. He had a successful season in the Bundesliga in 2020-21 with five goals and nine assists in 32 Bundesliga games as a starting midfielder, and last season he signed a new contract with Leipzig until 2027. 

He has also been capped by the Spanish national team. He made his A-match debut in November 2019 and helped Spain to a silver medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He was named to the final roster for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and scored his World Cup debut goal 바카라사이트 against Costa Rica. 

Olmo has been on fire at the start of this season. Although he suffered a long-term injury in late October last year that kept him out until January, he has scored one goal and provided one assist in his last five league games, leading Leipzig to three straight wins. Olmo has said he will remain focused on Leipzig despite interest from a number of clubs this season. 

Chelsea, in particular, are keen on Olmo as a replacement for Gallagher and Sterling. ”Indeed, sources close to the situation have suggested that Olmo has emerged as a key target for Chelsea ahead of the transfer window and that discussions are already underway,” said Steve Kay. 

“We understand that Chelsea have already taken steps to sign Olmo and have been in contact with Leipzig to discuss a potential fee.” Olmo has the opportunity to play in the Premier League this summer, which is considered the best league in the world.
