Leicester City enter race to sign Lewis Dunk

Dunk set for Premier League transfer?
Football Transfer Centre


Leicester City have approached Brighton and Hove Albion regarding a transfer move for impressive centre back Lewis Dunk. The player, who has been linked with a move to the Foxes as a potential replacement for Man Utd bound Harry Maguire, has 1 cap for England and is hopeful a transfer elsewhere will boost his own international prospects.

With Harry Maguire seemingly headed to Man Utd away from Leicester, Foxes’ manager Brendan Rodgers is seeking a move for Dunk as a replacement for the England centre back.

Dunk has played over 240 times for Brighton since coming through the ranks in 2010 and is considered one of the club’s best players. The 27-year-old has remained fiercely loyal to his current team but some senior players at the club admit that the player is now likely to depart.

Dunk is valued by his team in the region of £40 million.

Veteran striker Glenn Murray told reporters that he hopes Dunk will decide to stay with the team:  “As far as any of our better players are concerned, they are the ones you want to keep. But football is a business as well as a sport and I think everyone has got their price.

“As far as the players are concerned, we all want Lewis to stay and lead us into another Premier League campaign.”

Welbeck yet to find new club
Football Transfer Centre


Former Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck is struggling to find a new club owing to his current £100,000-a-week wage demands, a report from The Sun claims.

The England international, who spent the past five seasons with the Gunners, is available on a free transfer this summer after the north London giants decided against renewing his contract.

West Ham United, Everton and Newcastle United have all been credited with an interest in signing him, but so far, there has been no progress in terms of a deal with any of those sides.

According to The Sun, Welbeck continues to attract interest from the Premier League but his £100,000 a week demands in addition to a £5m signing-on fee has put off potential suitors from making an approach.

The same publication claims that Serie A side Lazio also hold an interest in the former Manchester United graduate, although they are likewise in disagreement over the salary demands of the forward.

Welbeck missed the vast part of the previous campaign with an ankle damage and that played a part in his release from the Gunners, given he has previously been sidelined with a couple of season-ending knee injuries.

Harry Maguire news

Foxes want a higher fee upfront from United for Maguire


Leicester City have reportedly told Manchester United that they are unlikely to sanction the sale of Harry Maguire unless they receive a higher transfer fee upfront.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen on improving the club’s defence ahead of the new season.

According to The Mail, the Red Devils have made an opening bid of £72m with additional bonuses which would be paid, should the club qualify for the Champions League.

However, the Foxes have rebuffed the package and want a bigger sum upfront, given they are not convinced that the Red Devils will make a swift return to Europe’s elite competition.

Maguire, who has four years remaining on his Foxes contract, has been regularly involved with the east Midlands side in their preparations for the new Premier League campaign.

Manchester City have recently failed with a similar offer to United’s for the England international but they have decided against continuing their pursuit of the centre-back.

Dybala: no longer heading to England


Tottenham and Man Utd target Paulo Dybala has told Juventus that he wants to stay at the club and fight for his future. The Argentina international had been linked with a move to England this summer, having seen his first-team opportunities at the club slip away last campaign.

Spurs were reportedly in pole position to sign the player but Mauricio Pochettino will be left very disappointed with the latest news that Dybala intends to stay in Turin.

It is understood that the striker was offered as a part of a potential deal to sign Romelu Lukaku from Juventus, but that deal appears to be dead in the water. Dybala is valued at around £75 million by Juve, a transfer fee that Tottenham are ready to pay outright for the player. Yet it is understood that Dybala has no interest in a move to White Hart Lane.

Newly appointed manager Maurizio Sarri has held talks with Dybala regarding the striker’s future at the club, and has indicated that the player can fight for a spot in the first team next year.

Chelsea teenager wants number 10 shirt?

Hudson-Odoi wants number 10 shirt


Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi has reportedly requested the number 10 jersey as part of the requirements to pen a new contract with the club.

The England international has been in a contract standoff with the Blues over the past 12 months, but reports have recently emerged that he is on the cusp of penning a new long-term deal.

Amidst this, the representatives of Hudson-Odoi have urged the Blues to hand him with the vacant number 10 shirt and Metro suggests that the club may oblige to the request to keep the winger happy.

Brazil international Willian recently indicated that he has been offered the jersey formerly worn by Eden Hazard, but manager Frank Lampard has refuted those claims by stating that no conclusion has been made over the same.

Meanwhile, Hudson-Odoi is currently recovering after an operation for a ruptured Achilles tendon and he is unlikely to return to first-team action until after the first international break of the campaign.

Wolves to sign Sami Khedira?

Sami Khedira news


Wolves are chasing Juventus’ midfielder Sami Khedira on a reported 15 million euro transfer move. The German international, who won the World Cup in Brazil in 2012, is reportedly ready to move to England in search of regular first-team football.

The 32-year-old has a deal with the Turin side until 2021 and has been informed by newly appointed manager Maurizio Sarri that he is free to leave the club.

The former Real Madrid star, who has been with Juventus since 2015, is seeking regular first-team football after the arrival of Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal.

Last season Khedira played in just 10 Serie A games, scoring two goals, and was mainly restricted to a bit part role at the club due to the emergence of Emre Can.

It is understood that Khedira is frustrated with a lack of game time at Juve and has instructed his agent to find him a new club prior to the end of the transfer window, with also reported interest from China and also in his homeland Germany, with Werder Bremen and former club VfB Stuttgart interested.
