Frank Lampard provides fresh transfer update on Ross Barkley

Lampard clears the air on Barkley’s Chelsea future


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has dismissed the prospect of Ross Barkley leaving the Blues amid the recent speculation linking him with a move to West Ham United.

The England international has barely played for the Blues in the past few months due to an ankle problem but he has recently starred for the club in the back-to-back games in all competitions.

Amidst this, there has been the speculation of him making the move to the Hammers but Lampard has rubbished the claim by stating that the midfielder’s future remains with the club.

“There’s no talk here of Ross Barkley going anywhere; he’s our player. He’s played the last couple of games and done very well. I’ve got a lot of faith in Ross. That was news I heard just like everyone else, but there’s absolutely no feeling towards that here. I’m very happy with him,” he told via Football.London.

The Blues are said to be eyeing a new midfielder and defender in the transfer window but they are presently not close to signing anyone to strengthen the first-team squad.

Real Madrid’s Isco and Lille’s Boubakary Soumare have been linked with possible moves but the Blues have yet to find the breakthrough for any of those players.

Chelsea won’t sign Wilson


Chelsea have reportedly ended their interest in signing Callum Wilson from Bournemouth, given his performances have dropped over the course of the current season.

The 27-year-old earned recognition with the England national side owing to his performances last term but he has not been able to replicate the same this campaign.

He has netted just five goals during the current top-flight campaign and he has gone on a run of 14 league matches where he has been unable to find the net for the Cherries.

As a result, the Blues seem to have ended their prolonged interest in his services and Sky Sports News claims that they won’t be lodging any transfer approach this month.

Meanwhile, it is also reported that the club won’t exercise the buy-back clause present in the contract of Cherries defender Nathan Ake and they are prepared to look elsewhere in the search for reinforcements.

Chelsea are scheduled to face Newcastle United on the road in the Premier League this weekend. They are currently fourth in the standings with 39 points on the board.

James Maddison news

Maddison won’t leave Leicester this month


Leicester City midfielder James Maddison is prepared to wait until the summer before deciding on a possible move away from the King Power Stadium.

The England international has been earmarked as one of the prime transfer targets for Manchester United but a mid-season deal appears unlikely.

According to Manchester Evening News, United are aware that the Foxes won’t listen to any offers for the midfielder this month and they are willing to remain patient in the player’s pursuit.

Similarly, Maddison seems in no hurry to part ways with the east Midlands outfit and he won’t make an attempt to force through an exit before the January transfer deadline.

United are lacking creative midfield options within their first-team squad and they have recently been hampered with both Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay sidelined with injury concerns.

The Mancunian giants are presently on a three-match winless streak and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has recently stressed that there is no quick fix to the club’s ongoing concerns.

Villa sign Drinkwater on loan

Premier League side Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of Danny Drinkwater on a short-term loan agreement from Chelsea.

The England international spent the first half of the season on a temporary deal at Burnley but he struggled for gametime and managed just one appearance in the Premier League.

As a result, the Clarets did not take the option of retaining his services for the second half of the campaign and this has allowed the Villains to acquire the midfielder’s signature on loan for the rest of the season.

 “Danny was a key member of Leicester City‘s title-winning team and has represented England, so he is a vastly experienced player. He will strengthen our squad significantly,” Villains boss Dean Smith told the club’s official website.

Villa are expected to be without goalkeeper Tom Heaton and striker Wesley for the rest of the campaign. John McGinn is sidelined for the next three months with an ankle problem and Drinkwater should replace the Scot in the club’s midfield.

Football Transfer Centre


German giants Borussia Dortmund have no plans of parting ways with Jadon Sancho in the New Year amid the speculated interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United.

The England international has been reported to be unsettled due to the recent criticism of his attitude from manager Lucien Favre and there have been claims that he could leave the Bundesliga side in the New Year.

According to Bild, Dortmund have no desire to cash in on their prized asset at the turn of the year and they are prepared to wait until the summer before considering his future.

Manchester United and Real Madrid have recently been linked with a £100m swoop for Sancho and reports have also claimed that Chelsea could join the race once their transfer ban concludes.

Chelsea are not permitted to make any new signings until July 2020 but they are said to be confident of reducing the transfer ban after making their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Foxes won’t sell Chilwell in January


Leicester City will reportedly turn down the option to sell defender Ben Chilwell, should the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United make an approach.

The England international has been in stunning form for club and country this term and he recently bagged three assists for the Three Lions in a Euro 2020 qualifier.

As a result, there has been much speculation over his next challenge but Standard Sport claims that the Foxes have no intention to sanction the player’s sale in the New Year.

United have relied on Ashley Young and Brandon Williams on the left side of the defence this term with Luke Shaw struggling with muscular injury concerns.

As such, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to recruit another left-sided defender with experience and Chilwell perfect fits the club’s requirements for the long-term.

Elsewhere, Marcos Alonso and Emerson has remained inconsistent for the Blues despite their strong start to the campaign and Frank Lampard is open to working with Chilwell.

Chilwell’s current deal with the Foxes expires only in the summer of 2024 and the club are in a strong position to decline bids in the next few transfer windows.

German midfielder Kai Havertz has hinted he could be ready to depart Bayer Leverkusen in favour of a transfer elsewhere, with clubs in England apparently considering a move for the creative starlet. Bayern Munich have also been linked with a transfer for the Leverkusen man.

“They’re probably the biggest club in Germany and there are many players that were very successful at a young age that went there,” he said about Bayern’s reported interest. “Therefore, I get linked with Bayern, but we’ll see what happens.

“There are players that want to stay close to their family and others say, ‘I want to live in another country’.

“There’s something clear: if you want to be a star in Germany, you can’t go wrong with Bayern.”

Man Utd have been constantly linked with a move for Havertz, and when asked about a move to England the player responded: 

“I think I’ve picked up enough international experience at Leverkusen,” he added.

“I know the rhythm of these international matches and I’m confident that I can go abroad at any moment and play at clubs outside of Germany.”

Football Transfer Centre


Manchester United are reportedly set to face stiff competition from some of Europe’s elite sides, should they wish to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund next summer. 

The Red Devils had made an approach for the England international during the summer of 2019 but Dortmund made it clear that the attacker was not for sale.

Since then, reports have indicated that Dortmund may sanction the winger’s sale at the end of the season and there are likely to demand a sum of around £100m.

According to Bild, United are no longer alone in the player’s pursuit and they are set to face competition from the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, City, Liverpool and Chelsea next summer.

Sancho, who has generally featured on the right side of the attack, has been in sublime form for Dortmund this term and he has already bagged four goals and seven assists from 13 appearances.

His current contract with Dortmund only expires in the summer of 2022 but Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has recently hinted that the teenager could be permitted to leave the club for the right price in eight months’ time.

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

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.

Eddie Howe unperturbed by Wilson speculation

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has said that the recent speculation linking Callum Wilson with a winter move to Manchester United seems pointless.

The England international has been in sparkling form of late with five goals from four league appearances and this has earned him another call-up with the Three Lions.

Amidst this, there has been the speculation that the Red Devils may launch a January move to secure his services but Howe believes it is too early to speak on the transfer gossip.

“To hear transfer links and rumours at this stage when the window is shut and a long way from being open, for me, it is pointless talking about it,” he told via Goal.com.

Wilson has netted in each of the past four league matches for the Cherries and Howe will be banking on the marksman to prove his credentials against Arsenal on Sunday.

The Cherries have a dreadful record at the Emirates Stadium with four defeats on the bounce and they will require a quick start off the blocks to take advantage of the Gunners’ vulnerability at the back.

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.

Rice open to future United move?


West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice has said that he has the credentials to play for Manchester United but he is not prepared for the challenge at the current point of time.

The England international has made impressive progress with the Hammers over the past year and he is now regarded as one of the constants in the national setup.

As such, there has been speculation linking him with a move to the Red Devils and speaking to Four Four Two, he has acknowledged that he would be tempted to join the club in the future.

“Don’t get me wrong, I think I’ve got the ability to play for a club like that. But it’s all about the timing and I don’t think the timing is right for me at all. I’ve still got so much to learn,” he told.

Rice has made three appearances for the England national side since switching his allegiance from the Republic of Ireland. He is expected to feature in the forthcoming games against Bulgaria and Kosovo.
