CHELSEA transfer news and gossip – Starsport brings you the latest rumours including updates on Willian, Aleksandr Golovin and N’Golo Kante.
Barcelona are concerned Manchester United could enter the bidding for Chelsea winger Willian.
According to the Daily Mail, Nou Camp bosses have launched a third offer worth £65m for the Brazil international – a steep increase on their initial £50m bid.
Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri wants to keep Willian but he is attracted by a potential move to Barcelona.
Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is a fan and could throw a spanner in the works by firming up his interest with a bid.
Chelsea are reluctant to sell Willian and would reportedly only sanction a deal for an optimum price.
Chelsea are set to sign Aleksandr Golovin from CSKA Moscow, according to one of the World Cup star’s former team-mates.
Goalkeeper Sergei Chepchugov, who played for the Russian giants between 2010 and 2017, claims Golovin has secured a move to Stamford Bridge.
Writing on Instagram, Chepchugov expressed his delight for the 22-year-old and told him to “have fun” and a “great career” at Chelsea.
Monaco are also interested in signing Golovin, who scored one goal in four appearances for Russia at the World Cup.
Paris Saint-Germain are in talks to sign Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante, according to Le Parisien.
The French publication claim PSG sporting director Antero Henrique has held ‘extensive negotiations’ with Kante’s representatives.
The Ligue 1 champions are struggling to seal moves against the backdrop of Financial Fair Play issues and will have to sell before they can buy.
Chelsea are likely to demand a club-record fee for Kante, who is under contract until 2021.
