Chelsea linked with surprise move for Steven N'Zonzi

  Chelsea linked with surprise move for Steven N'Zonzi Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Steven N’Zonzi from Sevilla this summer. The Blues’ managerial situation is currently uncertain, with Antonio Conte still contracted to the club and yet to be replaced. Chelsea want a change in the hot-seat but are yet to secure a new boss. However, a number of players have already been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge nevertheless, and Sevilla midfielder N’Zonzi is the latest in a long list. According to a report from Spanish news outlet Estadio Deportivo, as cited by talkSPORT, Chelsea have expressed an interest in N’Zonzi with his future at the La Liga club currently under scrutiny. Chelsea are already well-stocked with midfield options but it seems reinforcements are being targeted, as links with N’Zonzi emerge. Although, if the Blues are serious in their pursuit of N’Zonzi, they may need to accelerate their efforts. New Arsenal boss Unai Emery is understood to be keen on reuniting with the player at his new club this summer.

Report: Liverpool Interested in Cagliari Midfielder Nicolo Barella . Created with Sketch. Liverpool target Nicolo Barella will not be allowed to leave Cagliari for less than £45m, according to reports in Italy.

Nicolò Barella (Italian pronunciation: [nikoˈlɔ bbaˈrɛlla]; born 7 February 1997) is an Italian footballer who currently plays as a midfielder for Serie A club Cagliari.

Chelsea are interested in signing Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella.

According to La Nuova Sardegna, the most reputable paper in Sardinia, Chelsea are expected to make an offer for Barella if they hire Maurizio Sarri as their new manager, as expected.

Sarri will apparently ask Roman Abramovic to make an offer to sign the 21-year-old as and when he arrives at Stamford Bridge, although they’ll face competition from Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp is said to be a fan of the midfielder and he too is considering making a bid.

However, Cagliari have apparently put an asking price of €40m on the Italian U21 international, and it’s difficult to see either Chelsea or Liverpool paying such a large amount for a relatively unproven player.

Chelsea ready to end Drinkwater's Blues stay

  Chelsea ready to end Drinkwater's Blues stay Chelsea are reportedly interested in cutting their losses and selling Danny Drinkwater, according to the Mirror. The Blues are ready to get rid of the midfielder only a year after signing the midfielder from Leicester City for over £30 million. The midfielder has struggled to get game time at Stamford Bridge, only making five Premier League starts for Chelsea. The midfielder has seen his England World Cup chances completely go, with Drinkwater not even a backup player for Gareth Southgate’s side in Russia. The 28-year-old could raise some cash for Chelsea to buy other transfer targets, including Jean Michael Seri, with the Blues looking to replace Drinkwater with the Nice star. Drinkwater will move on without winning anything with the Blues, after winning the Premier League title with Leicester City in 2016. Drinkwater moved to Chelsea last Summer for over £30 million but failed to make an impact in the first team.

Nicolo Barella has been target of Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp as the managers look to bolster their midfield options for the next season. Euro Football Rumours understood that Chelsea and Liverpool aren’t the only ones who are reportedly interested in the 20-year-old.

Chelsea . Liverpool. Liverpool will step up their pursuit of Cagliari star Nicolo Barella , despite interest from Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund. The 21-year-old is in high demand after another excellent season in Serie A and Europe's top clubs are beginning to circle.

Barella has only broken into the Cagliari team in the last couple of years, making  35 appearances last year and 30 the year before, so whether anyone will be willing to pay such an amount remains to be seen.

Manchester United consider move for Joan Sastre .
Manchester United are reportedly lining up a move for promising young defender, Joan Sastre. The 21-year-old has established himself as an integral part of Real Mallorca’s first-team and played a key role as the club secured their promotion to Segunda A in recent times. Sastre’s form has not gone unnoticed, either, with claims from Spanish news outlet Sport indicating that a host of clubs from the top divisions of European football are interested in acquiring him this summer. Manchester United are named as a potential destination for Sastre, but Barcelona are also said to have expressed an interest in the promising defender, who is known to operate at right-back primarily. The Red Devils recently landed FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot, who is a similarly promising player and also plays on the right-hand side of defence. However, it seems United are continuing to plan for the future and have identified Sastre as a potential signing. A stay in Spain may be on the cards, though, with Barca and Real Madrid also reportedly keen.
