Chelsea transfer news: The end for Torres and Ba? Lampard set to confirm move

Stamford Bridge Inside

A round up of transfer stories this morning about Chelsea.

The Daily Star claims Chelsea have made a move for £16 million Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike.

Emenike has been one of the most impressive players for Nigeria at the World Cup as they reached the last 16 with Argentina from their group.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen to add further strength to his attack after criticising Demba Ba and Fernando Torres last season.

Frank Lampard is expected to announce in the near future that he’s joining MLS side New York City.

The Blues legend had been linked with a move to the new franchise in the USA but is yet to confirm the deal.

NYC have already signed former Barcelona striker David Villa ahead of the new MLS season.

Chelsea are thought to be one of several Premier League clubs chasing a deal for the son of former star Gus Poyet.

Diego Poyet is thought to be up for grabs after turning down the chance to sign a new deal and stay with Charlton Athletic.

He’d be a solid addition to the Chelsea youth ranks though the club reportedly faces competition from the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
