Tiemoue Bakayoko

Tiemoué Bakayoko deal between AC Milan and Chelsea will be completed today.

Medical is this week.

Chelsea will extend Bakayoko’s contract until 2024.

The deal will be a two-year loan with the option to buy set at €15m.

Jules Kounde

Chelsea have their final bid ready to be submitted for Jules Koundé.

Koundé personal terms, agreed since July – nothing new. (Fabrizio Romano)

Kurt Zouma’s deal to West Ham is seen as the catalyst for this move and we can expect news on the Kounde deal soon. Possibly after the Liverpool match on Saturday.

Ilaix Moriba

Tottenham seem to have edged closer to signing Moriba instead of Chelsea. (Daniele Longo)

Saul Niguez

Chelsea have agreed terms on a season-long loan deal for Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, 90min understands, with just a clause over any future permanent transfer left to iron out.

The Blues have moved ahead of Manchester United in the pursuit of the 26-year-old, who has been flattered by Chelsea’s determination to bring him in before the transfer window closes on Tuesday.

Saul has been told he can leave Wanda Metropolitano – with the Rojiblancos also allowing him to leave to the Premier League.

The two parties remain locked in talks over whether there will be an option or obligation to buy the Spain international at the end of that spell.

Atletico want to include an obligation to buy for around £40m. However, at this stage it is more likely the west Londoners will get their way in securing an option instead of obligation.

Tino Livramento

Livramento has today signed for Southampton in a five-year deal.

The 18-year-old had offers from top Premier League clubs and Bundesliga clubs but the pathway that Ralph Hasenhüttl and the Saints have set for Livramento persuaded him to join them.

Livramento will join Dynel Simeu at Southampton and will presumably be joining the senior squad and be battling for first team minutes.

Chelsea will receive £5m and have a sell-on clause and the buy-back clause inserted into the contract means Chelsea can potentially buy back the Englishman for around £25m.

Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea have made two bids already for the 28-year-old Lukaku this summer.

Just as of 22:35 (U.K.), the latest info from Fabrizio Romano states that Inter have rejected Chelsea’s latest bid of €100m including Marcos Alonso for the Belgian forward. Di Marzio states that another offer could come from Chelsea and that it’s up to Lukaku if he wants to make the move.

Chelsea are willing to listen to offers regarding these 5 players. (Telegraph)

Erling Haaland

As Dortmund refuse to change their willingness to negotiate with Chelsea over Haaland, Chelsea have begun to look into Romelu Lukaku as first choice target. (Telegraph)

Jules Kounde

The move for Kounde could then be part of a ‘three-way negotiation’ which would see Davinson Sanchez exchange Tottenham for Sevilla, after Kurt Zouma has potentially signed for Spurs. (SportWitness)

Ilaix Moriba 

Barcelona fear that Chelsea is the reason as to why talks with Ilaix Moriba aren’t progressing as planned. The English side would be in a position to offer the player up to three times the salary that Barça are able to offer him.

Barcelona offered the player a €2m wage+bonuses based on performances, but the player wants €3m. (sport)

Chelsea are said to love the midfielder, and are ‘willing to sign him now, or wait until he’s free in June’. (SportWitness)

Barcelona have set the deadline for Moriba to sign a new deal as Sunday. (Mundo Deportivo)
