Star Player To Undergo Chelsea Medical Today
Arguably the most pleasantly surprising Chelsea transfer of the summer is now officially over the line, with the Blues announcing the signing of Carney Chukwuemeka today. The 18-year-old super-talent joins from Aston Villa for a reported £20m, signing a six-year contract and apparently becoming the highest paid teenager in English football in the process.
Chelsea Opens Negotiations For De Jong
CHELSEA have opened talks with Barcelona to secure the signature of Frenkie de Jong. Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong is proving hot property this summer, though Chelsea won’t be able to strike a deal for the Dutchman by including Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso in the deal. The pair have been cited as transfer targets of the La Liga outfit previously.
West Ham Move For Maxwel Cornet
West Ham United have agreed a fee with Championship club Burnley to sign versatile Ivory Coast international Maxwel Cornet that could lead to the end of the Hammers’ interest in Filip Kostic.
The Hammers have been searching for a new versatile left-sided player who can also play at left wing-back, a bill which Cornet fits. David Moyes’ side had an interest in both him and Filip Kostic from Eintracht Frankfurt, but a bid accepted for Cornet could lead to the Ivory Coast international switching Turf Moor for the London Stadium.
