Chelsea transfer news and rumours live: Marina Granovskaia ‘agrees’ £26.8m deal, Romero eyed

The Blues finally completed the signing of Kai Havertz last week, with the German international joining for a club record fee.

Havertz’s arrival bolsters an already impressive looking front line for Frank Lampard’s side, after the arrivals of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.

But that does not signal the end of Chelsea’s spending, with reports claiming that the Blues are still intent on signing a new goalkeeper and another centre-back.

West Ham’s Declan Rice continues to be linked, whilst Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak and Rennes’ Edouard Mendy have also been tipped for potential moves to Stamford Bridge.

New third kit

Sergio Romero eyed

Chelsea have been tipped to make a move for Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero.

According to The Athletic, Frank Lampard could look to the United number two to solve his goalkeeping issue.

That’s despite reports of strong interest in Edouard Mendy.

Bakayoko deal ‘agreed’

Chelsea have reportedly struck an agreement with AC Milan over the loan of Tiemoue Bakayoko.

According to journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Milan will sign their former loan star for a loan fee of €3million with an option of signing him permanently for €30million (£26.8m).

Bakayoko spent last season on loan at Monaco after spending the season before at San Siro.

The 26-year-old has spent one full season with the Blues despite arriving on a £40million deal.
