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.

Manchester United to make fresh raid on Leicester City?

Maddison wanted by United?


Manchester United are reportedly planning to make a raid for James Maddison from Leicester City after having previously pursued Harry Maguire from the east Midlands outfit.

The Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has favoured the addition of young and hungry players to his squad and the recent transfer window saw the recruitment of Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Maguire.

Each of those players have made an instant impact with the Mancunian giants and according to The Times, Maddison has now been earmarked as the next transfer target for Solskjaer.

It is added that the Red Devils could bid in upwards of £60m for the former Norwich City graduate, though it is unclear whether the Foxes will consider a mid-season sale of their playmaker.

Maddison has broken into Gareth Southgate‘s England squad on a couple of occasions but he has yet to earn an international cap with the Three Lions to date. The 22-year-old has contributed a couple of assists for the Foxes this term.

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.”
