Chelsea Transfer News: Juventus want Cahill, No Willian sale advised, midfielder agreed

Chelsea star Gary Cahill is a shock transfer target for Juventus.

The Italian side are keen on a deal for the Stamford Bridge centre-back, The Sun report.

Juve lost Leonardo Bonucci to AC Milan earlier this summer.

And they’re desperate for a replacement, with Cahill a potential option.

Cahill, who took over as Chelsea captain this summer following John Terry’s departure, made a nightmare start to the season.

He was shown a straight red card in the opening day 3-2 defeat to Burnley and slapped with a three-match ban.

Shay Given has warned Chelsea against selling Willian to Barcelona.

The Spanish giants are reportedly keen on a deal, but Given thinks they should keep hold of the Brazilian.

“Willian would be a good target for Barcelona,” Given said on Sky Sports News.

“You’d like to think if Coutinho doesn’t go there they’ve got a plan B to get other players in.

“Chelsea can’t afford to let him go, they need to strengthen their squad a bit more.”

Jordan Houghton is heading back to Doncaster on loan.

The Chelsea midfielder played at the Keepmoat Stadium last term.

And boss Darren Ferguson says a deal is now on for the Blues ace.

“Houghton is all done,” he told BBC Radio Sheffield.

“It has just been agreed and it is all done.

“The paperwork has been completed and it will go to the Football League now so we are absolutely delighted.”

Premier League rival line up £28m bid to snatch midfield target from Chelsea

Tottenham will look to steal a march on Chelsea by opening the bidding for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley, according to Daily Telegraph journalist Matt Law.

He reports that Spurs’s first offer will be £20million plus £8million in add-ons. The Blues will likely then make a bid of their own as they seek to strengthen the numbers of home grown talent in their squad.

The Toffees were hoping to sell the England international for £50million this summer as they to try to prevent the player leaving for nothing when his contract runs out next year. The closeness of the transfer deadline, and the 23 year old’s serious hamstring injury, will however force them to sell for half that amount.

In addition to Barkley, manager Antonio Conte is said to be keen on landing two other England internationals in Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Leicester’s Danny Drinkwater before the end of the transfer window.
