Vecino talks underway

Chelsea have initiated contact for Inter Milan's Matias Vecino. The Uruguayan is familiar with Maurizio Sarri from his time at Empoli and the Italian tactician has eyed Vecino as the catalyst to help fast track his style of play at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues got to witness the 26 year old first hand when they squared off against Inter in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.

A new arrival in midfield could potentially see someone like Tiemoue Bakayoko depart the club on loan, with the Frenchman linked with the likes of Sevilla and AC Milan off-late.

Vecino is valued at £31 million by Inter Milan

Arsenal plot Ramsey swap

Arsenal maybe forced to let Aaron Ramsey leave for Barcelona if the Gunners were to acquire Ousmane Dembele. Ramsey has entered the final year of his contract and his future remains very unclear at the Emirates Stadium despite entering negotiations for a new contract.

Meanwhile, Dembele had a horrific debut season at Camp Nou as injuries and poor form couldn't help him kickstart his career for Barcelona, being constantly in and out of the startling line-up and the Frenchman accumulated just three goals in the league last term.

New boss Unai Emery is keen on bolstering his squad for the upcoming season and Dembele has been heavily linked with the Arsenal over the last few and Barcelona might be willing to axe the 21 year old after they acquired Malcom last week from Bordeaux.

Ramsey is being tracked by Chelsea also

The swap deal between AC Milan and Juventus has been set in place. Gonzalo Higuain and Mattia Caldara are on the verge of making the switch to the San Siro while Leonardo Bonucci will seal a return to Turin. 

However, the biggest losers are bound to be Chelsea, who have been chasing the Juventus duo for the last week but Maurizio Sarri could miss on another transfer target with time slowly running out until the close of the English market.

Barcelona reach out for Eden Hazard

Barcelona are the latest contenders to for Chelsea ace Eden Hazard. The Blaugrana have initiated contact with the Blues and are keen on sealing the deal for the Belgian winger as they look to add another attacker to their already stacked first team.

Real Madrid's interest in Hazard has faded away as they were unable to meet Chelsea's soaring price tag and have now turned their attention to Willian.

Meanwhile, Maurizio Sarri and the Board are desperate to keep the 27 year old at Stamford Bridge for the upcoming season and are ready to offer Hazard a new contract worth £300,000 per week.

Hazard's stock has rocketed following an impressive World Cup campaign

Barcelona are keen on getting rid of veteran defender Thomas Vermaelen this window but face resistance from manager Ernesto Valverde as the 54 year old wants to keep hold off the Belgian for the 2018/19 campaign.

Chelsea make Pulisic move

Chelsea have opened talks for Borussia Dortmund startlet Christian Pulisic and is likely to fetch a fee of over £60 million. Similarly, Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool are also believed to be in the hunt for the American International but their pursuit has not transferred into anything substantial yet.

Pulisic has been eyed as a replacement for the wantaway Willian and the Blues could initiate business with Dortmund once the Brazilian winger is sold.

The teenager is one of the highly rated young talents in Europe and has attracted interest from Real Madrid among a few and Dortmund could cash in on Pulisic this window with just two years remaining on his contract.

Pulisic has been in high demand this summer

Chelsea prepare Milinkovic-Savic bid

Lazio Star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has failed to report back for pre-season in Rome. This has opened the door for Chelsea to come in with their offer as a €115 million from new boss Maurizio Sarri looms around the corner. Real Madrid and Manchester United were also in the hunt for the Serbian midfielder but their interest has cooled off lately and the Blues appear to be the sole contenders to land Milinkovic-Savic.

Man Utd plot Mina signing

Jose Mourinho and Manchester United have shifted focus towards Barcelona defender Yerry Mina. The Portuguese boss is desperate for a new center-back this window and have explored several alternatives thus far.

The Red Devils have been pushing for Leicester City's Harry Maguire over the last week but a deal hasn't materialized due to the high asking price set by The Foxes. Mina has also been linked with a move to Everton but United could pounce on this deal and make a €40 million offer for the Colombian.

Meanwhile, Yerry Mina dropped a huge transfer hinted earlier today on Instagram when he removed 'Barca player' of his profile from his and unfollowed the official Barcelona handle and instead started following the Man Utd account.

Mina had a tough time at Barcelona last term following his £10.5 move from Palmeiras

Real Madrid want Chelsea Superstar

Eden Hazard has been Real Madrid's number one target this summer. However, Chelsea's resistance in negotiations and unwillingness to sell their prized asset has left the Los Blancos frustrated as their search for Cristiano Ronaldo's replacement continues. 

Real have now switched their focus to Hazard's teammate, Willian and have lined up a £100 million double swoop for the Brazilian along with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. The duo are highly favoured to leave Stamford Bridge this window and the Blues could consider cashing in on both the players.

Chelsea rejected three £50 million plus offers for Willian from Barcelona over a week ago while Courtois has reiterated his desire to relocate back to Madrid with just one year left on his contract.
