Just when Chelsea fans thought they could focus on this season, given there are just few games left, a certain German insider has decided to get everyone talking about the summer transfer window.

Christian Falk knows his stuff though, and his bombshell is a big one – Chelsea are apparently interested in Mo Salah as they pursue a goalscoring forward this summer.
The links to Romelu Lukaku and Erling Haaland have been heard plenty of times before, but the idea that Salah might join from Premier League rivals Liverpool is a juicy one. It’s also easy to see him slotting in to any of the attacking positions in Tuchel’s 343 formation.
Salah was of course once a Chelsea player, although he didn’t get many chances before being shipped out by Jose Mourinho.
Resigning him – or Lukaku for that matter – would be an admission of a mistake in the past. But if it takes this team to the next level, there’s nothing wrong with that.
