Liverpool interested in move for Nicolo Barella

  Liverpool interested in move for Nicolo Barella Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella. According to La Nuova Sardegna, the most reputable paper in Sardinia, the Reds are expected to make an offer for Barella at some point over the next few weeks. Chelsea are said to also interested in the 21-year-old, so Liverpool will face some competition for his signature. 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. 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. Liverpool have already signed Naby Keita and Fabinho, both of whom will become Reds in 2018, but there is still room for them to bring in another player, especially a youngster, so time will tell if Barella is a man they target.

Chelsea reject £17m bid from Arsenal for David Luiz

  Chelsea reject £17m bid from Arsenal for David Luiz Arsenal have reportedly had a £17 million bid rejected by Chelsea for Brazilian defender David Luiz. Reports in France from Le10 Sport claim that the Gunners are once again interested in signing the player. Luiz has been heavily linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer after falling out of favour under head coach Antonio Conte. Arsenal were linked with the player during the January transfer, while Napoli have also been touted as a possible destination for the player this summer. Unai Emery is reshaping the Arsenal defence this summer with the arrival of Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sokratis set to join from Dortmund. Should Conte remain in charge at Stamford Bridge beyond the summer, then it is believed that the player will push for a move away from Chelsea. Luiz lost his place in the Chelsea side to Andreas Christensen, despite playing a key role in the Blues’ title success under Conte. The Brazilian made only nine Premier League starts for Chelsea last season, featuring just twice domestically during 2018.

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.

Conte rejects Real Madrid to respect Chelsea contract .
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has rejected an approach from Real Madrid for him to become their next permanent manager, according to Sky Sports Italia. According to Sky Sports Italia, as cited by Football Italia, Conte intends to honour his contract with Chelsea. Conte was contacted by Real Madrid directors yesterday, according to the report, with the Spanish club enquiring as to whether the Italian would be interested in the role. However Conte, who many expect to depart the Blues this summer having failed to defend his Premier League title and qualify for the Champions League, passed on the grounds that he wants to respect his current deal with Chelsea. Football Italia comment that Conte may wait to be fired by Chelsea, as he will €10million if he has his contract cut short. Another concern of Conte’s is the mentality of a top side like Real Madrid, where he is concerned over the work ethic of the current crop of players, while he also isn’t keen on the policy of spending heavily on star names.
