Dunk wanted by Chelsea


Chelsea have reportedly been told by Brighton & Hove Albion that they will need to come up with a package of around £50m in order to sign Lewis Dunk during the current transfer window.

The Blues have fared impressively throughout the current season and despite a recent struggles in the Premier League, they continued to remain in the fourth spot with a five-point advantage over Manchester United.

According to The Times, the west London giants are looking at the prospect of signing an experienced centre-back despite the fact that they have four senior options at their disposal.

Antonio Rudiger, Kurt Zouma, Fikayo Tomori and Andreas Christensen have been rotated at the heart of the defence this term but manager Frank Lampard still seems keen on another central defender, given the club have struggled to restrict the opposition from scoring on most occasions.

The same outlet states that Brighton captain Dunk has been earmarked as the prime target to fulfil their requirement but he won’t come on the cheap with the Seagulls reluctant to accept anything less than £50m for the sale of the England international.

Cole wants Chilwell at Chelsea
Football Transfer Centre


Chelsea legend Ashley Cole has recommended his former club to acquire the services of Ben Chilwell from fellow Premier League side Leicester City.

The Blues are in the mark for a new left-sided defender with the likes of Marcos Alonso and Emerson struggling for consistency while Cesar Azpilicueta has likewise been unimpressive in a makeshift role.

As a result, Chilwell has been earmarked as the prime transfer target for the January transfer window and Cole believes that the Blues should make an approach for the Foxes star in the New Year.

“I would love to see him at Chelsea,” Cole told talkSPORT. “He’s doing really, really well at Leicester. He’s enjoying the way Brendan [Rodgers] plays and his system; he’s got that licence to attack.”

Leicester boss Rodgers has recently stated that the club are unlikely to offload any of their first-team stars next month and Cole believes the Blues may struggle to find the breakthrough at the midway stage of the season.

“I think he’s quality and I’ve heard he’s a Chelsea fan, too, so I would like to see him here. Whether he would want to leave, or if Leicester would want to sell him, that’s something the clubs would have to talk about,” he added.

Chilwell has featured in 13 league games for the Foxes this term, contributing one goal and three assists. He has also been a regular with England and recently bagged three assists against Montenegro.

United to swoop for Rice
Football Transfer Centre


Manchester United are reportedly preparing a transfer proposal for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice as they seek to improve their options in the centre of the park.

The England international only signed a long-term deal with the Hammers last year but this has not ceased the speculation regarding his future with the east London side.

According to Goal.com, the Red Devils have identified Rice as the priority target to bolster the midfield and they are prepared to come up with an offer worth £80m to prise him away from the Hammers.

It is added that the Mancunian giants will initially make the move at the turn of the year but they are prepared to wait until next summer, should the Hammers reject a mid-season transfer.

Rice, who has come through the Hammers academy, has racked nearly 85 appearances. He has also cemented his spot as a regular for the Three Lions since March 2019.

Manchester United are reportedly weighing up an approach to sign Ben Chilwell from Leicester City as they aim to bolster the left side of the defence.

The 22-year-old, who has also been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea, has made close to 100 appearances for the Foxes since his debut during the 2015/16 season.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are said to hold a keen interest in signing the England international with Luke Shaw yet to establish himself as the first-choice left-back.

Shaw managed to stay injury free for most of the previous season where he was named the club’s Player of the Year but that has not been the case this term.

The former Southampton graduate has already missed nine games this season with a hamstring problem and reports indicate that his time with the club could be coming to an end.

Aside from Chilwell, the Red Devils are also said to hold an interest in compatriot James Maddison and a double swoop could be on the cards next year.

Dembele wants Premier League move
Football Transfer Centre


French striker Moussa Dembele is reportedly open to making the return to English football amid the speculated interest from Manchester United.

The 23-year-old has been with Les Gones since the summer of 2018 and he has made a good impact with 26 goals across all competitions.

According to Football Insider, the former Fulham youngster is contemplating his options for the future and he would welcome a second stint in England.

Dembele has already netted six goals during the current campaign but there have been many occasions where he has been called upon off the bench.

His situation could change with Rudi Garcia recently taking charge at Les Gones but he nonetheless appears keen on pursuing a bigger challenge.

United have been linked with a move for Dembele since the summer but they may have to wait until the end of the season to land his services.

Apart from the Red Devils, Chelsea have also been credited with an interest in the past but it is unclear whether they will make a future transfer approach.
