Chelsea interested in Odegaard, Muller open to Bayern exit, Inter ready to sell Lukaku and Kane wants medals in Chelsea roundup…
Real Madrid playmaker Martin Odegaard has emerged as a transfer target for Chelsea, stunning reports have claimed from Spain.
After Arsenal managed to convince Real Madrid to let Odehaard make the move to the Emirates on a loan deal until the end of the season, the talented midfielder has made a big impression on that Gunners squad.
Many fans want him to stay, many legends have come out and urged the board to get a deal done and even Mikel Arteta has hinted that he would love the Arsenal board to get a permanent transfer deal done for Odegaard.
WHAT IS THE LATEST?
according to AS, Chelsea have now entered the chase to try and get Odegaard all signed up in the summer.
Thomas Tuchel may need an immediate replacement for Jorginho, who has been linked with a move away from the club this coming summer, and he has reportedly been very impressed by how easily Odegaard has adapted to the Premier League.
However, there are not the only side that are reportedly interested in the player as Liverpool have reportedly also entered the chase to get a deal done.
But while the Gunners want to extend that stay, they have no purchase option.
Thomas Muller has admitted that he is open to following Thiago Alcantara’s path out of Allianz Arena, insisting he is “not fixed” to Bayern Munich.
Muller has appeared in 571 games across all competitions for Bayern, scoring 212 goals and laying on 210 assists. The experienced frontman has picked up 27 major trophies, including nine Bundesliga titles and two Champions League crowns.
The 31-year-old remains a key member of the squad, but he is refusing to rule out a transfer in the near future – citing Thiago’s 2020 move to Liverpool as proof that no one is bound to the club unconditionally.
WHAT HAS MULLER SAID?
“I’m not fixed to this club,” the Bayern forward told The Times. “I have a special relationship, I love Bayern before I started playing for them, but when there is a situation where you have to decide maybe to play for a different club it would be no shame and no problem at all.
“Maybe like with Thiago [Alcantara, now at Liverpool].”
Although there is no need for Chelsea to make a move and try to acquire the services of Muller in the summer, Thomas Tuchel will make a move for the player should he feel that the Bayern star will add to his squad next season.
There is no doubt that Tuchel is lacking a proven goal-scorer in his attack, and although Muller is not the same player he was just a few seasons ago, he is still regarded as one of the most deadly strikers in world football.
And for the right money, he may actually be a decent signing for the club.
Prolific Romelu Lukaku could be up for grabs this summer as Inter Milan look to balance their books, with reports that Chelsea are ready to bring him back to the Bridge.
Despite going unbeaten since taking over the club a few months ago, Thomas Tuchel is a man that knows he needs to improve certain areas of the pitch in the coming transfer window to turn this Chelsea side into Premier League winners.
And with the likes of Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud all failing to impress in front of goal this season, It is pretty clear that the German coach wants to add a premium striker to the attack.
WHAT IS THE LATEST?
Lukaku, 27, has been a massive hit in Italy, scoring 42 times in 62 league games for Inter, who are currently on course to secure their first Serie A title since 2010.
And his record on the international stage is equally impressive. His penalty in Belgium’s 3-1 victory over Wales in midweek made it 58 goals in 90 appearances for FIFA’s top-ranked country.
As with the whole of the football world, the COVID-19 outbreak has hit the Italian club’s finances hard, and with the Italian giants reportedly ready to balance the books in the summer, they would be open to the idea of letting Lukaku leave.
Manchester United and Chelsea target Harry Kane must leave Tottenham to win major titles, according to Jermain Defoe.
There is no doubt that Harry Kane is one of the very best and most dangerous strikers in world football right now, so despite the troubles that Tottenham have had this season, he will still break that 30-goal mark by the end of the year.
But there has been alot of talk in the media about where he could end up in the coming transfer windows, with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City the three Premier League clubs that are keen on trying to secure a deal.
WHAT HAS DEFOE TOLD KANE?
“You have to win and bring silverware, otherwise it’s not good enough,” the former Tottenham frontman, who is currently playing in Scotland with Rangers, told talkSPORT.
“When you actually achieve that and the feeling you get from that, wow man. I wish I had that earlier on in my career.
“If Harry Kane wants that and wants to win trophies then it looks like he has to go.
“I don’t think it will be easy for him to leave and he might be looking at it and want to finish off being the highest goalscorer in the club’s history and see where that takes him.
“He can hopefully win a few trophies, but if he’s really craving medals then he really has to go.”
Kane will stay loyal to Tottenham until after the European Championships, but it will be interesting to see where he ends up in the transfer window as he will add 30-40 goals to the club that he potentially joins
