Non-league striker destined for Premier League side?
Football Transfer Centre


Leicester City and Watford are both monitoring the progress of 22-year-old striker Ronald Sobowale, who currently plays for non-league club the Walton Casuals. According to a report in the Daily Mail, scouts have been deployed to check up on Sobowale’s recent progress.

The striker is currently on a trial with Middlesbrough but it is the Premier League that the player could end up, having already been in discussions with Watford and Leicester City representatives.  The striker hopes to follow the success of Jamie Vardy, who too came through the ranks outside of England’s top divisions. 

Interestingly, Sobowale is the cousin of Austria and Bayern Munich legend David Alaba and has been prolific in front of goal for his team so far this season.

With Leicester City seeking a potential backup for Jamie Vardy, the cut-price 22-year-old could be available for just £200,000 and thus would not break the bank for the Foxes.

Sobowale had been linked with a transfer to Sheffield Wednesday just last season, but a deal failed to materialise.

Jadon Sancho news

United confident of Sancho deal
Football Transfer Centre


Manchester United are reportedly prepared to meet Borussia Dortmund’s price tag for Jadon Sancho when the current season comes to a close.

The 19-year-old has been a revelation for the Bundesliga outfit since joining them from Manchester City two years ago and he has already bagged 18 goals and 30 assists across all competitions.

United had failed with an approach to sign Sancho from Dortmund over the summer but The Mirror indicates that they will return for his signature at the end of the campaign.

It is added that Dortmund will consider offers in excess of £100m for the England international and United are more than willing to meet the valuation next summer.

Aside from Sancho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side are also eyeing deals for James Madisson and Ben Chilwell from Leicester City and they are optimistic of pushing through the moves at the same period.

Manchester United have recently jumped to the top half of the league standings following a 3-1 triumph over Norwich City on the road. They are set to face Chelsea in the midweek League Cup tie away from home.

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.

Juventus to make move for Chelsea star Kante

Kante on Juventus radar?


Juventus are expected to make a January transfer approach for Chelsea star N’Golo Kante. The French defensive midfielder has helped the Blues to Premier League title success but is reportedly keen to make a move elsewhere in pursuit of Champions League glory.

Juventus are ready to splash close to 120 million euros to sign Kante from the Stamford Bridge outfit and are confident that a deal can be reached.

The midfielder, who previously helped Leicester City to a Premier League title, has indicated previously that he is happy at the Blues, but there are continual rumours that the player will eventually depart England for a move to either Italy or Spain.

Former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is keen to link up with his former player at his current club Juventus and has indicated that he would spend heavily to secure a deal for the World Cup winning player.

Kante has a contract with Chelsea until 2023 and the 28-year-old had previously indicated that he would be willing to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge beyond that spell.

Moussa Dembele news

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.

Ben Chilwell news

Chilwell to Chelsea in January?


Chelsea are deemed to be leading the race to sign defender Ben Chilwell from Leicester City when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

The Blues are presently banned from signing any players until July 1 but they are hopeful of reducing the punishment by six months after their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

According to The Mail, both United and Chelsea are looking into signing a new left-sided defender but the latter are leading the race to sign the England international.

Emerson and Marcos Alonso have been the preferred picks for the left-back role under Frank Lampard this term and the former has regularly got the nod for the starting XI.

Still, Lampard is understood to be eyeing a more attack-minded left-back, who can also be effective in the defence and Chilwell has been identified as the top target.

Leicester City have generally turned down the opportunity to cash in on their star players at the midway stage of the campaign and it remains to be seen whether they are tempted to sanction Chilwell’s sale, should the right offer come by.

Raheem Sterling news

Sterling wanted by Real Madrid
Football Transfer Centre


Real Madrid have reportedly earmarked Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling as their prime target for the 2020 summer transfer window.

The England international has been a huge contributor for the Citizens in the past couple of seasons and he has started the current campaign in the same vein of form with five goals from as many league appearances.

According to The Athletic, Los Blancos have held a long-term interest in the former Liverpool graduate and they are prepared to make a renewed approach at the end of the 2019/2020 season.

Still, the Citizens are in a strong position to keep Sterling with nearly four years remaining on his contract and Los Blancos will have to come up with a bid in excess of £100m to persuade the Premier League holders into doing business.

Sterling was an unused substitute during the recent Premier League against Watford where the Citizens romped to a stunning 8-0 win. He could feature against Preston North End in the League Cup third round tomorrow.

Real Madrid are reportedly set to target the signing of Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur when the current campaign comes to a close.

The England international has been a huge contributor for Spurs over the years and he has bagged 168 goals from 259 appearances including four from the opening six games this term.

Still, Kane has not won a single trophy for his efforts with the north London club and Rio Ferdinand recently suggested that the centre-forward should leave Spurs to win silverware.

According to AS, Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is determined to pursue the services of Kane and a formal approach could be made during the 2020 summer transfer window.

Spurs are currently in a strong position to keep hold of Kane, who has more than four years left on his contract, but Los Blancos appear prepared to spend most of next summer’s budget to lure the striker to the Bernabeu.

Luka Jovic was recruited by Zinedine Zidane‘s side during the summer to provide competition to Karim Benzema upfront but the Serbian has drawn blank during his first five games for the club.

Chelsea finally reach contract agreement with emerging star

Hudson-Odoi finally signs new Chelsea deal


Chelsea have finally sorted out the future of Callum Hudson-Odoi after committing the teenager to a new long-term contract with the club.

The England international had been in a contract standoff with the Blues since the turn of the year amid concerns that he may struggle to earn regular gametime with the first-team.

However, the player’s stance has finally changed following months of negotiations and the Blues have now confirmed that he has penned a new contract until the summer of 2024.

“It’s an amazing feeling. It’s been a long wait but it’s done now and I’m really happy about that,” Hudson-Odoi was quoted as saying by the club’s official website following the renewal.

Hudson-Odoi has recovered from a serious Achilles injury picked up during the backend of the previous season but he has yet to make his bow under Frank Lampard due to the reduced match sharpness.

The League Cup clash against Grimsby Town could witness the potential return of Hudson-Odoi on the playing field. Alongside the teenager, Reece James could be handed with a Blues debut during that game.

England international close to signing new Chelsea contract


Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly on the cusp of signing a new long-term contract with the club after an extended period of negotiations.

The attacker has not featured for the Blues this term due to his recovery from an Achilles injury and he is currently stepping up his fitness while playing for the development squad.

According to The Telegraph, the youngster has already agreed to a five-year contract on wages of £100,000-a-week and the club are now putting finishing touches before announcing the renewal.

The England international has been with the west London side since the age of six. He made his breakthrough during the previous campaign where he contributed five goals and five assists from 24 appearances.

Hudson-Odoi has also represented the England national side on a couple of occasions and he stands a chance of making the Euro 2020 squad next summer, provided he can excel with his performances on his injury comeback.
