All the latest news from SW6 including Chelsea's push for 'next Arsenal playmaker' shelved and Southampton wonderkid staying on south coast
Touted as the next Mesut Ozil and wanted by a plethora of elite-level European clubs including Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Juventus and Atletico Madrid, Hamburg 20-year-old Hakan Calhanoglu shares similar traits to the trequartista at Arsenal as, like Ozil he has dual Turkish-German nationality and, like Ozil, he is a gifted playmaker.
However, any push from Stamford Bridge to sign Calhanoglu has been thwarted by the club's manager Oliver Kreuzer, who told Hamburger Morgenpost: "Selling Hakan is definitely not an option."
His agent Bektas Demirtas reinforced: "We have not been receiving official enquiries from any club with regard to Hakan's future. There is also no reason as Hakan wanted to sign a long-term deal at Hamburg in February. He feels at home at the club. Any action is therefore up to the club.
"We would only start considering if Hamburg start negotiations with another club."
Calhanoglu averages a completed pass made once every 2.35 minutes he is on a Bundesliga pitch.
Other transfer news of a Chelsea interest includes Southampton full back Luke Shaw.
Like the case of Calhanoglu, the Shaw speculation has been quelled. Chairman Ralph Krueger is quoted by Daily Mail to have said: "At the end of the day Luke Shaw is a player that belongs to Southampton, and it will be the club, Southampton, that makes the decision as to what happens with his future. Of course there will be interest for him, but so far right now he's a player at Southampton and it looks as though it will continue that way.
"There are a lot of players who are under interest at Southampton, but they are all very happy at the football club, and most of them are under long-term contracts."
Shaw, 18, is valued by transfermarkt.co.uk at £11.5m and is contractually bound to the Saints until 2018. He completes a defensive action (won tackle, successful interception, clearance and block) once every 12.4 minutes he is on a Premier League field.
And finally, the most memorable advice Jose Mourinho ever gave strike favourite Didier Drogba was to not become a bad orange: "He once told me a story about the good orange and the bad orange. We had a match and after a few days off I had an injury but I didn't tell him. When you're injured you're not allowed to fly.
"So I went to the Ivory Coast and came back two days later and in the morning I said: "Coach, I can't train. I feel pain - I need to rest a little bit." And then he said to me: 'Y'know, Didier? I'm going to tell you something. Y'know, those oranges? When you put one in a basket with the others and one is bad - what happens to the other ones? They become bad as well, yeah? So make sure you don't become a bad one!'
"All I could say is: "I'm not a bad one!"
