Chelsea suffer triple transfer blow in moves for Anthony Gordon, Wilfried Zaha and Arsen Zakharyan | The Sun

CHELSEA have suffered a triple transfer blow in the pursuit of a new winger and midfielder, according to reports.

The Blues have already spent £263million under the new ownership of Todd Boehly and Co.

And if Chelsea had it their way, that spending would possibly top £300m.

Everton's Anthony Gordon, Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha and Russian Arsen Zakharyan were all targets.

However, moves for all three are in doubt with less than a day in the transfer window to go.

Toffees boss Frank Lampard warned his former club Chelsea it was too late to accept a deal for Gordon.

Lampard has previously stated the it would take north of £100m to part ways with the 21-year-old – and Chelsea were only willing to reach the £40m mark.

The Everton boss and Chelsea legend said, following a 1-1 draw with Leeds on Tuesday: "He's too important a player and I think he showed his worth in the last two games.

"And with two days now to go [until the transfer window closes], what good would it do us to do anything with Anthony?

"On a bigger picture than that, he is our player who we've developed and there's an affiliation with him and the fans and vice versa.

"Clearly, the interest has been there because he's a top player. And that's why we're so keen to keep him.”

According to the Evening Standard, a source has told the outlet a deal for Palace star man Zaha is "unlikely".

That's despite the winger, 29, having less than a year on his contract at Selhurst Park.

Palace are desperate to hold onto Zaha.

The report goes on to state a move for highly rated Russia international Zakharyan, 19, will also not happen.

A move for the Dynamo Moscow midfielder has hit a snag over how the transfer fee will be paid.

Zakharyan has just a £12.6m release clause. However, the deal will not go ahead because of sanctions on the Russian economy due to the war in Ukraine.
