GOOD MORNING BLUES FANS
Chelsea will face Luton Town in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
And if they manage to go through, they’ll face either Barnsley or Norwich.
Chelsea have reportedly placed Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl on a shortlist of potential Frank Lampard replacements.
The Mail reports Hasenhuttl is the star name on a provisional shortlist drawn up as the pressure mounts on the current Blues boss amid the club’s slump in form.
But Saints’ Austrian manager is not likely to leave St Mary’s midway through the season – so has been earmarked as one for the future if he keeps impressing on the south coast.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is toying with the idea of bringing Avram Grant back to the club in some capacity, according to TEAMtalk.
Grant is believed to be close with Abramovich and he could be brought in to help boss Lampard due to his wealth of football knowledge.
Chelsea target Gianluigi Donnarumma is set to pen a new deal at AC Milan, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
AC Milan sport director Frederic Massara told DAZN: “We’re confident to reach an agreement with Donnarumma and Calhanoglu in order to extend their contracts in the next weeks”
Tiemoue Bakayoko could finally be on his way out of Chelsea, according to reports.
The 26-year-old had an awful one-season spell at the club before being sent out on loan to the likes of AC Milan, former club Monaco, and now Napoli.
Bakayoko’s agent has spoken about the possibility at staying at Napoli.
As reported by Simone Guadagno, Bakayoko’s agent said: “Redemption at Napoli?
“Too soon to talk about it, there are still so many things to see.
“Neither the club nor the player spoke to each other. Staying in Naples would be a good chance.
“We will see at the end of the season. However, Napoli has priority over his future for June.”
