Chelsea eye Chilwell understudy

Chelsea have been told how to complete the signing of Stuttgart left-back Borna Sosa in the upcoming transfer window, with Thomas Tuchel keen to undergo a rebuild this summer. In February, football.london reported that Sosa has been watched by Blues scouts this season to monitor his progress.

Should the west Londoners look to acquire the defender’s services this summer, his £21.3million release will have to be paid, claim German outlet Bild.

Salah price tag revealed

Mohamed Salah’s potential transfer fee has been revealed, with the Egyptian reportedly open to joining another Premier League side next summer. The 29-year-old, who sees his contract at Anfield expire in 2023, is said to consider a free transfer to a rival of Liverpool’s if he doesn’t receive a ‘significantly improved’ offer from the Reds, according to The Athletic.

With just one-year left on his current deal at Anfield, Salah is currently valued at around £59.7million by CIES Football Observatory. Though, if the forward chooses to see out his deal then, of course, he’ll be available for free.

Newcastle deal for ‘next Mbappe’

Newcastle are edging closer to a deal to sign Reims striker Hugo Ekitike, according to reports. The move would represent a huge blow to Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United, who have all been linked with a move for the youngster.

The Gunners and the Blues have both been linked with Reims youngster Ekitike, who managed 14 goal involvements in just 24 Ligue 1 appearances. The 19-year-old’s rise to notoriety has been likened to Kylian Mbappe, with some claiming he is the “next Kylian Mbappe”.

However, it may be an uphill battle to land him, as Fabrizio Romano reports that Premier League rivals Newcastle are nearing a deal to sign the 19-year-old on a five-year deal. The fee is believed to be roughly €35million (£30million) in total, which could be a bargain if he continues to develop.
