£105m powerhouse makes Chelsea transfer decision, Solskjaer told to bring £200m duo to Man United, £40m Blues star ‘will be a good fit’ at Arsenal, Spurs open Brazilian talks in news of the day
Lukaku makes Chelsea decision, Spurs opens talks to sign Brazilian, Arsenal told Abraham would be good signing and Man United told to sign £200 million duo in football news of the day…
Tammy Abraham has been tipped to join West Ham or Arsenal amid uncertainty over his Chelsea future.
After breaking the 20-goal barrier for Chelsea last season, Abraham was tipped to be the main man at the Bridge this season, despite the summer arrival of Timo Werner from the Bundesliga.
However, that has not been the case for the young man and he has struggled for form, mostly down to his lack of game time, which has seen him fall well down the pecking order at Chelsea, with rumours the club will accept £40 million in the summer
And former West Ham midfielder Trevor Sinclair insists Abraham would be a hit at the Hammers or Arsenal, He told talkSPORT: “Abraham would be a great match for West Ham. It’s what they want, it’s what they need with [Michail] Antonio’s injuries.
“He tends to pick up quite a lot of muscular because he is an absolute unit. The West Ham fans would love Abraham.
“He’s got everything. Arsenal could do with him, too. [Alexandre] Lacazette is getting older. He’d be a hold-up player, bringing something slightly different with his height.
“He’s mobile, he’s got good feet, he could be a good pick for Arsenal.
“But he’s obviously a talented player. I’m a big fan of his. I just want to see him playing football.
“If he’s not developing and continuing to improve as a player, he’s standing still and that’s not great for a young player.”
Look, ABraham is a striker that needs to be playing on a weekly basis and not sitting on that bench at CHELSEA, so if the Gunners are keen on a new striker in the transfer window, then why not add a very good proven Premier League hitman?
Roy Keane has claimed Manchester United should target Harry Kane and Jack Grealish this summer if they are to mount a Premier League title challenge next season.
Despite Reaching that Europa League final and probably finishing second in the Premier League this season, United are well off the quality of Manchester City and will need to invest in the summer to close that gap.
And that has led to reports that the club will make a move for Kane, who is looking to win trophies and topped to leave Spurs, and Grealish, who is now ready to make that next step in his career.
WHAT HAS KEANE SAID?
He told Sky Sports: “The two players who I’ve thought about over the last few weeks who I feel would be brilliant for Man United are Harry Kane up front – whatever it costs – and I’d go with Jack Grealish. I feel United are still short of that special player. I think Grealish would give them that and I feel he would enjoy playing at Old Trafford.
“The fans would love him. What I admire about Jack is that he’s got great courage on the football pitch. He always wants the ball in tight areas. We’ve seen over the last year or two his end product has improved. He’s an excellent player and obviously Kane would guarantee goals.
“Would it be difficult to get these two players? You bet your life it would be, but Man United have to go out and try to sign the best otherwise we’ll be having the same conversations next year about being nearly there. Jack would be ready for Man United. He’s done well for Aston Villa, a brilliant club who are doing very well, but Jack’s got to be selfish.”
If United manage to secure transfer deals for these two players then they will have a very good chance of winning back that Premier League title.
Tottenham have entered negotiations with Brazilian side Corinthians over the potential signing of teenage forward Rodrigo Varanda.
Tottenham are currently still in the market for a new boss as Ryan Mason will lead the club until the end of the season, with a number of candidates on the shopping list of Chairman Daniel Levy.
But that has not stopped the club looking to wrap up a few transfer deals that will add a bit more depth the side, and with Carlos Vinicius heading back to Benfica at the end of the season, Tottenham are looking to another Brazilian to provide back-up to Harry Kane
The beaten Carabao Cup finalists are in talks over the possibility of signing Varanda from Corinthians, according to The Sun
The 18-year-old is regarded as a huge prospect by those at the Sao Paulo club after racking up 10 first-team appearances since breaking into the side. Spurs are said to be leading a number of European competitors in the race for his signature, having kept a close eye on his progress for a number of years
It is reported that he will cost the club close to £10 million to acquire.
Look it is not the story that fans wants to see and Varanda is not the type of player that fans would like to see arrive, but until a new manager is appointed, no big deals will take place.
The lad is very talented, from what we have seen, but it is a big risk to make a move for a player that has barely made that much of an impact. It could be seen as a waste of money from Levy.
Romelu Lukaku does not plan to leave Inter Milan this summer after the club’s Serie A title victory, Fabrizio Romano has told chasing Chelsea.
With reports suggesting that Thomas Tuchel has told the Chelsea board that he wants to add a stopper, defender and striker to his attack in the summer transfer window, there has been many reports linking the club for Lukaku.
Despite being a relative flop in the Premier League during his time at Chelsea and Manchester United, Lukaku has gone on to become the most deadly striker in Seria A over the past few seasons and has netted an impressive 61-goals in just 92 appearances for the Italians.
Those kind of numbers has led to reports that Chelsea have targeted him as a player that could be their main man next season, with reports also suggesting that they are willing to pay his massive £105 million asking price.
However, Romano has come out and told Chelsea that Lukaku has no intention of Leaving Inter Milan in the summer, especially after helping the club nail down their first Serie A title in more than 10 years, and break the dominance of Juventus.
The striker told Sky Sport on Sunday that “he’s really proud to be an Inter player” – and Romano said the Belgium international will stick around for next season amid reported interest from clubs outside Italy.
Look, Lukaku has been brilliant over at Inter and it has been a shock to see Chelsea linked with a move, but this was going to be a deal that the Blues were never going to get done, he is very happy over in Italian football.
If Chelsea do sign a striker in the summer, it will be an interesting watch to see just who they buy
