Chelsea News: Star Back and Ready for Southampton, Rudiger's Fate and Tuchel's New Target

The Blues are back at Stamford Bridge and eagerly waiting to bounce back to winning ways as Southampton pay a Saturday visit. Reports from Chelsea's camp through Thomas Tuchel has got super good news for Chelsea fans. Mason Mount is finally back and fit to play against Southampton in the next fixture.

Mount had missed out for two weeks and didn't feature against both Manchester City and Juventus. Unfortunately, Chelsea lost both battles and barely had a shot on target showing how essential the English young man is to Tuchel's squad.

However, both Reece James and Ng'olo Kante will be unavailable against the Saints as they are still not fit enough to play. Kante is in isolation after testing positive for COVID19 in midweek while James picked an injury against Manchester City.

Away from injury news, let's shift our focus on Rudiger's stay. Though there are no agreements between Chelsea and Rudiger concerning the German's contract extension, Rudiger is very happy to stay at Stamford Bridge and will be more comfortable if his agents come in mutual agreement with Blues management board over his salary. Notably, Rudiger is bargaining for additional amount on his current payments.

Definitely it's Tuchel's and every other Chelsea lover wish that Ruddy remains. He has greatly helped keep a solid backline hard to break and is next to irreplaceable if no agreements are reached by parties involved. Failure to do so, a number of football Giants are keenly interested with Rudiger's services, the most suitors being Bayern Munich.

Transfer rumors: Chelsea are heavily linked with interests to sign 24-year old Newcastle super dribbler France winger Allan Saint Maximin. Probably, Tuchel main target is to solve dormancy in midfield and add better creativity power.

Will Chelsea win back their supporters trust by beating Southampton after Mount returns. Should Rudiger be released after an unending chain of rumors linking him with Chelsea's exit? How good is Maximin to join the Blues? Please drop your comment below.
