According to reports in Tuttosport, Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko is a transfer target for AC Milan this summer. They are also prepared to include Pepe Reina in a possible deal.

The Blues, who have only just signed Rob Green as their third choice goalkeeper, will be hoping that they can keep Thibault Courtois at Stamford Bridge this summer. However, with Real Madrid allegedly agreeing to terms with the Belgian, the Spaniard may become a potential target.

Bakayoko had a difficult debut season at the Bridge. He may well find himself on the way out with Maurizio Sarri already adding Jorginho. The France international could yet still remain with Chelsea, as he looks to improve on last season’s efforts.

Chelsea have also been linked with Jordan Pickford recently as well. It is likely, however, that the Blues would pay a world record fee for the English goalie. That record was set in this window by Liverpool, for AS Roma’s Alisson Becker.

Chelsea to make Eden Hazard captain to fend off Real Madrid

Premier League

Maurizio Sarri is planning to make Eden Hazard his club captain this summer as Chelsea continue to try to keep the star at Stamford Bridge.

Real Madrid are believed to be keen on making the Belgium international their signing of the summer, however, it remains to be seen if they will pay the £200million that the Blues want for him.

New and old faces at Chelsea this summer

Premier League

Chelsea are keen to make a number of additions this summer. Now Sarri has finally been confirmed, they could be on the verge of making a couple of deals.

Juventus’ Daniele Rugani is expected to complete a move to Stamford Bridge. Juventus apparently have no desire to sell the 23-year-old. The Blues have also yet to make an offer for Gonzalo Higuain.

That could mean that record signing Alvaro Morata may be given another chance to prove himself in the Premier League, despite interest in him from AC Milan.

United may offload a couple of players to bring Maguire

Premier League

Jose Mourinho’s pursuit of Harry Maguire is no secret following his World Cup performances for England. The Leicester City man was one of the men of the tournament for the Three Lions.

However, the Foxes are likely to try to keep a firm grip on the defender, despite claims that Manchester United are about to step up their chase for him.

According to the Mirror, Marcos Rojo and Matteo Darmian could both be offloaded this summer. Premier League new boys Wolverhampton Wanderers want with the Argentine. Darmian, on the other hand, may seek a return to Italy.

Mourinho to be reunited with Willian?

Premier League

The Daily Express are claiming that Willian could reunite with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United this summer, despite Chelsea’s constant refusal to allow him to go to Barcelona.

The Old Trafford outfit are keen on adding the Brazilian to their side, especially if Anthony Martial does leave the club, although the Blues remain keen on keeping him at Stamford Bridge and Maurizio Sarri will be hoping he can convince him to stay.

Mingolet headed for the exit?

Premier League

With the arrival of Alisson Becker, it is no surprise that one of the goalkeepers at Liverpool will be leaving.

Simon Mingolet is the man at the moment considering a switch, with Besiktas rumoured to be the destination. The Turkish outfit are in talks with the Premier League side about a deal for the 30-year-old.

Lazar Markovic is another who could be about to leave Anfield, with Olympiakos targeting the midfielder.

Bellerin going nowhere

Premier League

Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin has insisted that he will be remaining at the Emirates Stadium this summer. This is despite constant links with a move to Barcelona, and potentially Manchester City.

The full-back has stated that he is happy, and it would be “crazy” to talk about leaving the Gunners.
