Stay tuned for the latest updates as Mauricio Pochettino strives to strengthen the Chelsea squad for the upcoming season. Keep a close watch to avoid missing out on any developments.
Although Paris Saint-Germain seemingly secured the signing of Manuel Ugarte, Todd Boehly is now ready to make significant efforts in pursuing deals for Andre Onana and Moises Caicedo. Declan Rice appears to be slipping out of Chelsea’s reach, with Arsenal intensifying their interest.
However, before new arrivals grace the Cobham training ground, the squad needs to be trimmed down. N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek face increasingly uncertain futures at Stamford Bridge, as do Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Christian Pulisic, and Hakim Ziyech.
Nonetheless, Pochettino’s project is gradually taking shape. Therefore, rely on newcollection.news to bring you all the latest news and transfer gossip throughout the day.
Romelu Lukaku next club odds
Inter Milan 5/6
Any Saudi Pro League club 11/8
To stay at Chelsea 9/4
Aston Villa 20/1
Atletico Madrid 25/1
Chelsea and Tottenham are both vying for the signing of David Raya as they seek to strengthen their goalkeeping options. The 27-year-old shot-stopper has been strongly linked with a departure from Brentford this summer, and the club’s technical director has given him permission to leave.
According to reliable sources at newcollection.news, Raya is among the targets identified by Tottenham as they search for a replacement for Hugo Lloris. Chelsea and Manchester United are also monitoring the situation closely, while it remains to be seen if Tottenham can reach an agreement.
Brentford has reportedly granted Raya permission to seek a new club, but acquiring his services could come at a price of at least £40 million.
According to renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano, Al-Ittihad is reportedly optimistic about finalizing the signing of N’Golo Kante this week.
Romano stated, “Al Ittihad is now confident that the deal with N’Golo Kante will be officially signed within the next 24 hours. An agreement was reached last week, the initial part of the medical examination has been completed, but they are still awaiting the signatures of the player and his agents. The deal is expected to be sealed after the final round of negotiations today.”
Chelsea’s pursuit of Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana has received a significant boost in their summer transfer plans.
Following their loss to Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League final, Chelsea is scheduled to hold talks with Inter Milan, during which the future of Romelu Lukaku will also be discussed.
The Sun reports that Chelsea’s interest in Onana, who was a runner-up in the Champions League, has now been bolstered as Inter Milan has already identified a replacement.
According to the report, Simone Inzaghi’s team has set their sights on Guglielmo Vicario, the goalkeeper of Empoli, and will make efforts to secure his signature ahead of the upcoming season.
Lukaku to Saudi Arabia
There are reports indicating that Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has made a trip to Saudi Arabia for discussions regarding a possible transfer to Al-Hilal.
Al-Hilal, the prominent team in the Saudi Pro League, is eager to strengthen their squad after failing to secure the services of Lionel Messi. They are now actively pursuing a deal for Neymar during this summer transfer window.
Lukaku, who is 30 years old, is expected to return to Chelsea before finalising any decision regarding his future.
Onana and Maignan preference
According to reports, Chelsea has expressed interest in securing the services of Andre Onana from Inter Milan and Mike Maignan from AC Milan as their top choices to become Mauricio Pochettino’s first-choice goalkeeper. With the potential departure of Edouard Mendy and Kepa Arrizabalaga, and the goalkeeping position being one of the club’s three main areas to strengthen, Chelsea has prioritised their options.
Onana showcased an impressive performance in the Champions League final for Inter and is rumoured to be available for a fee of approximately £50 million ($62.9 million). Maignan, who may come at a similar price, could present more challenges in reaching an agreement, as per newcollection.news. While Mendy is open to a potential sale, Kepa’s significant wage demands make a move for him less likely.
According to a report from CBS, Neymar is reportedly open to departing Paris Saint-Germain in the upcoming summer transfer window. Furthermore, the French champions would be willing to sell him if they receive a satisfactory offer.
Amidst Chelsea’s interest in acquiring Neymar as a high-profile addition to their squad, there have been inquiries from Saudi Arabia. Al-Hilal is reportedly seeking to make up for missing out on Lionel Messi by exploring the possibility of signing the Brazilian superstar.
In the pursuit of Declan Rice, Arsenal appears poised to outmanoeuvre Chelsea and Manchester United. The 24-year-old midfielder, who played a pivotal role in West Ham’s European success, has been heavily linked with a departure from the club this summer.
According to The Guardian, Arsenal is nearing an agreement with West Ham, with their sporting director Edu prepared to offer over £100 million for Rice if certain add-ons are met. This substantial sum would make Rice the most expensive player in Arsenal’s history.
While Arsenal has yet to officially submit a bid, positive negotiations are reportedly underway, instilling confidence within the club that a deal will be finalised in the near future.
Mbappe not to Madrid
Reports suggest that Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is open to selling Kylian Mbappe to any club except Real Madrid during this summer transfer window.
Chelsea is expected to be among the teams interested in signing the French star. However, it is worth noting that there is a strained relationship between Chelsea and PSG.
Stay updated on the latest Chelsea transfer news this morning as we present you with the top stories regarding Rasmus Hojlund, Frenkie de Jong, and Kylian Mbappe.
Frenkie de Jong has hinted at a potential departure from Barcelona during the upcoming summer transfer window. The talented Dutch midfielder was previously strongly linked with a move to the Premier League last year but ultimately stayed at Camp Nou for the 2022/23 season.
According to reports from newcollection.news, Chelsea expressed interest in signing De Jong last summer and were even optimistic about securing his services. However, despite contractual disputes with his current club, the Netherlands international chose to stay and has since played a crucial role in Barcelona’s recent achievements.
Although De Jong is contracted with Barcelona until 2026, the club’s ongoing financial challenges have put several players at risk of being sold this summer. In an interview with TV3 before the El Clasico match in March, De Jong reaffirmed his desire to remain at Barcelona for the foreseeable future.
Sky News has reported that Kylian Mbappe may be on the verge of departing Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). The highly talented French superstar has informed the club that he does not wish to engage in discussions about extending his contract by an additional year until 2025. PSG is reluctant to risk losing him on a free transfer next year, thus indicating that they are likely to sell him in the near future.
