With constant speculation about players coming into Chelsea, we are reading reports of all sorts of players being linked with a summer move to Stamford Bridge. Who would YOU personally like Chelsea to sign?

If I asked you about Gael Kakuta many of you will question why we signed him with all that fuss in the first place. It will be announced shortly that he has signed for Seville on a free transfer.

For those appearances in a Chelsea shirt which were few and far between, it was obvious he has natural talent.

It's been another week of speculation and rumour for all of us. All sorts of names are being linked with moves in and out of our club but I wanted to get your thoughts on what is being reported as our new strike force for next season.

First and foremost like all of you, I am pleased that Diego Costa has come out and played down the recent speculation that he was unhappy in England because he was unable to settle.

There are plenty of rumours flying about at the moment and that will intensify after Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho confirmed he has targeted three summer signings.

We have seen plenty of names being linked with a move to the club in the past few weeks. Plenty of it is pure speculation as agents look to fill their own pockets by touting their clients names around to drum up interest and look for a better contract with their current club.

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side have had a fantastic season. Not only did the Blues reclaim the Premier League title for the first time since 2010, and by an impressive margin ahead of nearest rivals Manchester City, but they also managed to get their hands on the League Cup back in March after beating London rivals Tottenham at Wembley.

A Chelsea Fans Blog for Chelsea Fans at related • 0 views

Patrick Bamford is back at Chelsea this summer and all of us are waiting to see what happens. He has won the Championship Player of the Year award and pleaded for a chance at Chelsea but it looks like that's not going to happen.

Reports have surfaced over the weekend (and I have to state that they could be false) that Chelsea have stuck a £10m price tag on his head for any interested parties in signing him.

Why am I reading reports that a number of Premier League clubs are in for Chelsea striker Loic Remy this summer? Would you sell him?

Granted it's being reported that he wants to play more next season with the European Championships coming up at the end of the season but do you think Jose Mourinho would even consider letting him go?

Over the years some truly great forwards have graced the Stamford Bridge turf, even before the big money acquisitions of the Abramovich era. If the rumour mill is to be believed, and United flop Radamel Falcao is on the verge of signing, despite the club v country debate surrounding his performances, he may well have the chance to join the Chelsea elite.

COSTA: Failed to settle in England - Problem for Chelsea - Costa must do more!

A Chelsea Fans Blog for Chelsea Fans at related • 0 views

I am troubled because of the reports that Diego Costa has contacted representatives from Atletico Madrid claiming that he is "desperate" for a return to Spain having failed to settle down in England. What do you people think?

I guess when you sign foreign players who have never lived in England, you always take a risk with them.
