The Chelsea morning headlines as VAR mistake confirmed and £54m striker transfer eyed

Here are your Chelsea morning headlines for Sunday, February 23rd.

Chelsea interested in Icardi

According to FC Inter News (via the Daily Star), Chelsea are interested in a summer move for Inter striker Mauro Icardi as they search to add strength to their striking department at the end of the season.

Lampard made no secret of the fact that he would have liked to bring in a forward during the January transfer window but a move never materialised leaving the Blues with Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi as their striking options.

Icardi is currently on loan at Paris Saint-Germain with the French side said to have a £54 million option in the summer, but should the French side wish not to take that option then Chelsea are waiting in the wings.

Loanee returns after injury

Chelsea loanee Josh Grant has returned to Stamford Bridge to be assessed after picking up a calf injury during his loan spell at Plymouth Argyle.

The injury caused the 21-year-old to miss the weekend’s game against Cambridge United and his Plymouth manager Ryan Lowe confirmed that he has since returned to Chelsea to undergo assessment.

“He has gone back to Chelsea. He trained yesterday actually because we thought he was going to be okay,” he said, as reported by Plymouth Live.

“He just felt a little bit of tenderness in there, the bottom of his calf and up his Achilles.

“Obviously he’s Chelsea’s player so we have to make sure we do the right thing so he has gone back there today.

“They have got the scanning machines there and then and we have sent him back to get them.”
