Chelsea have been linked with a number of exciting transfer targets ahead of the new season, as the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Tiemoue Bakayoko have been linked with Antonio Conte’s side, and Gary Cahill has a message for all the possible big name signings.

Cahill has said he doesn’t see why any big player wouldn’t want to come to Chelsea, as the Blues have a winning mentality.

“Since I have been here I have won six medals in five years and I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t want to join Chelsea,” Cahill told the London Evening Standard.

“I have been involved in semi-finals and finals of cup competitions and won League titles – there is no reason I can think of why someone wouldn’t want to be here.

“We breathe that winning mentality from top to bottom. Just look at the youth system. The Under-18s won the FA Youth Cup for a fourth straight year.

“They breed win, win, win here. It’s a great habit to get into. Ultimately I look at my Chelsea career since I stepped through the door and it’s been a total success.

“I look at the size of the club, the fanbase the calibre of players that come in, it’s got everything going for it.

“But when you win competitions, lift the League trophy like we did this season, it backs up everything this club is about. It proves we are the best team and obviously that will attract players.”
