With China now off the menu, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, 28, must look elsewhere for a new club. Chelsea are fluttering their eyes seductively in the direction of the Borussia Dortmund striker…
Which is handy for Olivier Giroud, 30. He says leaving Arsenal is a “possibility” and reports from Germany suggest Borussia Dortmund are in the market for a new striker. So long as he’s a French international…
Or Chelsea might be ready “to do battle” with AC Milan over £88m-rated Torino striker, Andrea Belotti, 23. Quite who rates him at £88m isn’t clear…
One man who is definitely Chelsea-bound is Tiemoue Bakayoko, 22. He will complete his move to Stamford Bridge tomorrow with £39.7m winging its way to Monaco.
Tottenham Hotspur took a look at their squad and decided Kyle Walker, 27, was surplus to requirements. Manchester City liked the cut of his jib and decided it was worth the £50m being demanded.
And with that money, Spurs will dangle £22m in front of Nice in the hope of hooking Ricardo Pereira, 22, from their grasp. Which is nice.
Arsenal didn’t bid for him so Leicester City winger, Riyad Mahrez, 26 hawked himself around Europe’s bazaars, a buyer finally emerged. AS Roma think £29m for the Algerian makes him a bargain they can’t miss out on.
