Chelsea are reportedly confident that they can beat the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid in the pursuit of Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho.

The England international has been a consistent performer for the Bundesliga side over the past two years and he has already bagged seven goals and nine goals for the club this term.

Despite this, there has been a sense of uncertainty regarding the attacker’s future a the club with manager Lucien Favre recently criticising him in public for his attitude.

According to Goal.com, the Blues are eyeing a swoop for the former Manchester City graduate and they are prepared to break their transfer record with a £100m plus bid.

It is added that Sancho shares a close relationship with fellow compatriots Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi from the England youth ranks and the Blues are aiming to lure the teenager with the influence of the duo.

Chelsea have already served nearly half of their year-long transfer ban but they are increasingly positive of winning their appeal to sign new players next month.

Meanwhile, Dortmund have made the decision to keep hold of Sancho until the summer at the least and it remains to be seen whether their stance changes during the forthcoming transfer window.

Smalling set for permanent Roma deal?

Serie A giants AS Roma are reportedly confident of signing Chris Smalling on a permanent basis from Manchester United when the season comes to a close.

The England international joined the Giallorossi on a season-long loan from the Red Devils over the summer but they were not able to agree on the option to buy.

Earlier this week, it had been indicated that the Red Devils may consider keeping the services of Smalling next season with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer impressed with the centre-back’s performances in Rome.

However, according to Sky Italia, that does not seem the case and the Italian are growingly optimistic of committing the central defender to a long-term contract with the club.

Smalling, who made 34 appearances for the Red Devils last season, is currently said to be valued at around £12.9m and that remains within the range of the Giallorossi next summer.

Roma recently registered a second successive league victory and that has propelled them into the top four. Next up, they have a tricky challenge with Napoli, who are one point behind them, making the trip to Stadio Olimpico.

Tammy Abraham news

Abraham close to Chelsea extension

Chelsea are reportedly on the cusp of committing Tammy Abraham to a new long-term contract. 

The England international contributed 26 goals during a loan stint with Aston Villa last term and he has carried over the form with the Blues this term with nine goals across all competitions.

As a result, the 21-year-old has emerged as the undisputed striker under Frank Lampard and the club are now working towards extending his contract beyond the summer of 2022.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Blues are in advanced negotiations with the striker regarding the renewal and they are very confident of getting a deal over the line.

Abraham presently earns around £50,000-a-week at the club but he stands the chance of trebling his wages after standing out with his performances upfront.

Abraham produced another impressive performance against Newcastle United at the weekend but Marcos Alonso eventually made the difference with the winning strike in the 73rd minute.
