Chelsea have been searching for a replacement for the outgoing Steve Holland since the summer. With news that Andrea Pirlo will retire from football in December, could he become Conte's right-hand man at Stamford Bridge?

It would be a fine appointment in my view with Pirlo adding his wealth of experience and knowledge of the game to our backroom team.

According to various newspaper reports and various media outlets, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has turned down a move to Chelsea despite a fee being agreed between both clubs and favours a move to Liverpool.

It sounds ridiculous really doesn't it. Liverpool are no-where near winning the Premier League at the moment if we take an objective look at their team so why on earth would "The-Ox" choose to turn down a move to the current Champions?

New contract talks between Chelsea and Thibaut Courtois are now reportedly on hold as the Belgian Goalkeeper has demanded that the club look to double his wages.

Is it me or is there always some sort of drama with Courtois? Ever since he came back to Chelsea there has always been reports of unrest or some misquoted interview that has caused issues between the club and player to the point that he has had to come out and speak publicly.

Tammy Abraham will get his opportunity to take on the Premier League this coming season at Swansea with Paul Clement in charge having agreed a season's loan with the Welsh side.

However, with reports that Rafa Benitez at Newcastle was interested in taking him up North for the coming season, Newcastle's first back in the big time having been relegated a year ago, it seems that Chelsea's hierarchy has stepped in and rejected the move with concerns over the local nightlife being a distraction as they are keen that he continues to work hard and build on the stunning progress he has made last season at Bristol City.

It's being reported that Bournemouth are set to announce the £20m signing of Nathan Ake from Chelsea once the player returns from his holidays early next month.

I must stress that these are unconfirmed reports at this stage as we wait to hear anything with substantial credibility but then again I wouldn't be surprised as the player himself has to be frustrated figure walking away from Stamford Bridge last month having joined in the Premier League trophy celebrations.

Diego Costa scored his twenty-first goal of the season in our FA Cup Final defeat to Arsenal and then issued Chelsea with an ultimatum if they wanted to sell him.

According to press reports, Antonio Conte is prepared to allow Baba Rahman to be loaned back to Schalke in Germany this January or even sold outright.
