Inter ready to sell £100m player to Chelsea, Blues to sign Arsenal midfielder, as Tuchel sent Kane message
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 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.
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.
However, he would not come cheap as reports have also indicated that the Italians want £100 million for the powerhouse
Lukaku was never really given a chance to shine at Stamford Bridge, but he has made a very good career for himself away from the club, so even though we are interested, he would surely not want to go back to a club that failed to keep their promises the first time around.
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 Odegaard 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.
according to AS, we 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.
Odegaard is a brilliant player that has shone in the Premier League over the past few weeks, so if the reports are true and we are really interested in a transfer deal, Arsenal will have a very hard time of it getting a permanent deal done.
We have the money to out-pay most clubs, and Arsenal are in a situation where Mikel Arteta will probably not get a whole bunch of money in the transfer window.
According to Jermain Defoe, Chelsea target Harry Kane must leave Tottenham to win major titles.
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.”
