Lukaku not bright enough for Chelsea

00:00: Paul Merson thinks Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku is not bright enough to play for Chelsea.

“Alvaro Morata is a top player but how long will it take him to settle?” he told the Daily Star.

“I don’t think Chelsea missed out on Romelu Lukaku. Morata is a better fit for them. But he’ll need time to adapt to English football.

“Lukaku’s not bright enough to play with Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas.

“He needs the ball over the top, and he’ll get that at Manchester United.

“But I still don’t think United have enough to open teams up. They don’t have enough guile.”

Benitez’s Perez fear 

22:00: Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez fears he will miss out on Arsenal striker Lucas Perez.

Deportivo La Coruna are increasingly confident Perez will head back to Spain, dealing another blow to Benitez’s hopes of strengthening his squad.

Messi and Suarez contact Coutinho

Spanish journalist Marcos Lopez claims Barca have used Messi and Suarez in a bid to turn his head and force an exit from Liverpool.

Hazard Real’s plan b

17.50: Real Madrid have reportedly identified Eden Hazard as their backup signing should they fail to secure a deal for Kylian Mbappe.

Spanish outlet Don Balon claim the Belgium international is the ‘plan b’ signing for Zinedine Zidane.

However, the Real boss will reportedly have a fight on his hands trying to convince club president Florentino Perez to sign Hazard.

Perez is said to be keen to protect Isco and Marco Asensio’s positions in the squad and does not want to sign the 26-year-old.

“I’m here to give my input and hopefully get the club back to the Premier League. Hopefully we can do that together.”

Mourinho eyes fourth signing

15.40: Jose Mourinho has admitted he is still holding out for a fourth summer signing, suggesting it could be a wide player.

When asked about the Red Devils’ transfer business, Mourinho replied: “You know 25 per cent means one of four?

“We got a central defender that can play in many other positions, which is important. Victor [Lindelof] can play right-back and can play central midfield.

“We got a central midfielder, we got a striker.

“Obviously the 25 per cent would be a player for another position, playing from the sides.”

Email request

14.54: Philippe Coutinho submitted his transfer request by email and has asked to leave the Anfield club.

FSG have rejected the requested but will come under more pressure if Barca make another bid.

The official Barcelona account – @FCBarcelona – appeared to confirm Coutinho had signed this morning.

An image began circling of Coutinho in a Barca strip in a post they’d made.

The tweet read: “Done deal, Phil Coutinho is now a Cule. #BienvenidoCoutinho.” That translates to Welcome Coutinho in Spanish.


Conte on transfers

13:55: Antonio Conte claims Chelsea are doing their best to sign more players but has avoided giving details on specific targets. 

Leicester’s Danny Drinkwater, Everton’s Ross Barkley and Valencia’s Joao Cancelo are among the stars to have been linked lately with a move to Stamford Bridge.

“My focus is on the pitch, training sessions and the players. This must be my focus.”

Liverpool deny transfer request

Watch this space…

Coutinho makes transfer request

12.28: Philippe Coutinho has handed in a transfer request at Liverpool.

FSG made a statement earlier today saying he would not be leaving and Jurgen Klopp said the situation was unchanged.

But now Coutinho has handed in a transfer request to send shockwaves through the club.

Merson – Sanchez to join Paris Saint-Germain tomorrow

12:20: Paul Merson reckons Arsenal would allow Alexis Sanchez to join Paris Saint-Germain tomorrow if it prevented him joining Manchester City.

“Arsenal would let Sanchez go to PSG tomorrow,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“The biggest worry is Manchester City and that’s the problem.

“If he went to City there would be uproar from the Arsenal fans. They would look at it and ask why the club are selling him to a Premier League rival.

“If he goes to PSG he’s out of sight, out of mind. He’s not going to come back and hurt you.

“However, it’s the Man City situation that’s the concern and we’ve seen it all before with Robin van Persie’s move to Manchester United.”

Danny Rose’s future in doubt

12.05: Danny Rose is contesting his fine for speaking out this week – putting his Tottenham future in further doubt.

Rose was hit with a two week fine after voicing his opinions on the club’s transfer policy and wage structure.

His comments alerted Chelsea and Manchester United to his availability but have been met positively within the Tottenham dressing room.

Rose has allies within the dressing room and it appears many feel the same way with the club’s dealings.

And now the Evening Standard now report that Rose is set to challenge his fine.

Mauricio Pochettino faces the media this afternoon and is expected to address the situation.

Klopp only wants Plan A

12:00: Jurgen Klopp won’t sign any players at Liverpool who are not his first choice.

The likes of Naby Keita and Virgil van Dijk have eluded Liverpool.

But Klopp will not settle for second best, despite the need for additions ahead of the new campaign and a return to Champions League football.

“If we bring in players we bring in players because I want them,” Klopp said. “That’s how I see it. There will not be a Plan B, Plan C or whatever. 

“The players I bring in will be Plan A. I cannot bring in a player just to buy a player.

“I have to make hard decision. We will see what happens on the 31st.”

Chelsea players angry with Conte

11:41: Chelsea players are angry with Antonio Conte and he will leave the club before Christmas, Perry Groves has sensationally claimed.

He told talkSPORT: “Antonio Conte will not be manager of Chelsea at Christmas – fact. I’ve got a mole in the camp and they are not happy behind the scenes. The players are not happy.

“And Conte isn’t happy with Michael Emanalo and Marina Granovskaia, who is the director. They’re the ones dealing with players.

“Antonio Conte has to go through those two first before he gets to Roman Abramovich and that’s where the problem lies.

“You can tell by Conte’s body language. It didn’t make sense to let one of your pivotal players, in Nemanja Matic, go to one of your main rivals.

“Conte has said it himself he didn’t want him to go. I know some of players aren’t happy with him too. They don’t like way he goes about things, it’s very dictatorial.

Drinkwater in the dark

11.30: Danny Drinkwater is in the dark over his future with Chelsea yet to return with a second bid.

The Leicester star was the subject of a £15m approach from Chelsea earlier this summer.

But according to the Telegraph the Blues are yet to follow up their initial interest.

Antonio Conte is desperate for more recruits and is frustrated with the club’s activity.

Drinkwater is up for a move and will miss the first week of the season with Leicester in action against Arsenal tonight.

Wenger wants ‘exceptional player’

11:00: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he is targeting an ‘exceptional player’ in the remaining weeks of the transfer window.

“We are open to an exceptional player,” he told Sky Sports. 

“However, just to remind you we have 33 players and they are all good players.

“That’s unmanageable so to bring one more player in for the sake of it would be stupid, but if we find an exceptional one, we will do it.”

Reine-Adelaide to Nantes

10:20: Arsenal youngster Jeff Reine-Adelaide could join Nantes on loan.

French newspaper L’Equipe say Reine-Adelaide has been offered to Nantes and the French side are interested in the possibility of taking the teenager on loan.

FSG make Coutinho statement

10.00: Liverpool’s owners FSG have made an emphatic statement on Philippe Coutinho’s position.

“We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho,” it said.

“The club’s definitive stance is that no offers for Philippe will be considered and he will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes.”

Barcelona have been trying to sign the Liverpool ace but will now have to look elsewhere.

Sigurdsson out of opener

10.00: Swansea have omitted Gylfi Sigurdsson from their season-opener at Southampton as the saga over his proposed transfer to Everton continues.

Fernando Llorente is absent after fracturing his arm while on a cycling holiday last month, joining Nathan Dyer (Achilles) and Ki Sung-yueng (knee) on the sidelines.

England Under-21 striker Tammy Abraham is expected to make his debut on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

But Sigurdsson’s name is the biggest absence with his future still uncertain.

Everton want to land the midfielder and have seen a £40m bid rejected with Swansea holding out for £50m.

Morata’s Chelsea doubts

09:50: Alvaro Morata admits he had doubts about joining Chelsea before he received a phone call from Antonio Conte.

He told Spanish newspaper Marca: “I knew Conte loved me, and I had talked to him many times. 

“In a way, I felt indebted to him because I signed for Juve and had to go. 

“Actually, at first, I did not know that I was so interested in signing myself, but when I found out, I did not hesitate and it was my preference.”

Barkley not going on the cheap

09.30: Ronald Koeman has told Tottenham to forget about getting Ross Barkley on the cheap.

Everton value Barkley at £50m despite having just one year left on his contract.

Tottenham want to pay around half of that and think the price will go down the closer it gets to the deadline.

But Koeman says Everton will stand firm.

“No, of course not,” said Koeman when asked if Everton would allow Barkley to leave cheaply.

“We have the experience of what we need to pay for players who came here and had one year of contract. If there is a club thinking we can wait until the last day and we put some money on the table and we get Ross Barkley, sorry, you do not get Ross Barkley.

“I do not know if Spurs are doing that. I am not sure. I have some experience. When I was in Southampton we lost some players, but I am mentioning the name of no club.”

Messi could leave Barcelona…

09.10: Jurgen Klopp says it’s possible Lionel Messi could leave Barcelona.

With Barcelona stepping up their pursuit of Philippe Coutinho, Klopp has moved to point people in another direction.

And he has now claimed Messi could leave Barca following the departure of Neymar.

“It’s pretty simple. Until now it was simply seen as impossible,” Klopp told DAZN. 

“Then there is the list, with the release-clauses for Barcelona. Leo Messi, €300m.

“In a period of just a month that suddenly sounds possible too. That used to be an outrageous amount. They just set that amount randomly. I mean who would pay €300m. And now it simply happened.”

Mahrez not on Wenger’s list

08:45: Arsene Wenger insists Arsenal were ‘never close’ to signing Riyad Mahrez.

The Leicester winger wants a new club this summer and has been linked with Roma and Arsenal.

But Wenger has denied that Arsenal were ever really in the running.

“We were never close… I rate him as a player but we have similar types with [Alex] Iwobi and [Jack] Wilshere back,” he said. 

“[With] Ozil [too], we have plenty of the same type of players.”

No Van Dijk offer yet

08:25: Southampton are still yet to receive an offer for Chelsea target Vigil van Dijk.

Despite the defender officially handing in a transfer request on Monday, no club has broken rank with a bid yet.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City are all keen on the Dutchman.

But according to the Daily Echo, no proposal has been submitted to the Saints for the £60m-rated centre-half.

Van Dijk continues to be frozen out at St Mary’s and Southampton are maintaining he is not for sale.

But it remains to be seen if they will accept defeat if a £60m offer comes in and Van Dijk’s refuses to stay and play.

Matic may have forced move

08:10: Frank Lampard believes Nemanja Matic may have forced his Chelsea exit but was surprised it was signed off by the club.

Matic traded Stamford Bridge for Old Trafford in a deal worth around £40m.

It leaves Chelsea looking short in the middle and has strengthened United.

“I was surprised to see him move to United and maybe there is more to this deal that we realise,” he told Yahoo Sport.

“I heard whispers at the back end of last season that he wanted to go and even if the club cannot come out and say too much about that, maybe there was an element of that in play here when this deal went through.

“You get the feeling that Chelsea didn’t really want Matic to go, but players can push for a move at times and that is why this deal feels different compared to Petr Cech’s move from Chelsea to Arsenal a couple of years back.

“Petr had done such a lot for the club, Thibaut Courtois had come in and it would have been harsh to stop him moving to Arsenal when he was so settled in London, but this is different.

“Matic was a big player for Chelsea last season and even though they have sign players to replace him, he is going to be missed and possibly just as significantly, he strengthens Manchester United, there is no doubt about that.”

No Coutinho sale

07.40: Philippe Coutinho is not for sale at any price according to Jurgen Klopp.

The Liverpool midfielder is Barcelona’s top target as they look to replace Neymar this summer.

On Wednesday night Barca saw a £93m bid rejected and Liverpool have made a statement by insisting he is not for sale.

“From a financial standpoint, there is no price limit to let him go or a price that we are ready to give in,” Klopp said.

“Our goal is to have the best possible team. So we want to keep our guys and add new ones. That is our plan.

“Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players. That is set in stone. So what they pay in the end doesn’t matter.”

Arsenal make Sanchez offer

7.10: Arsenal have offered Alexi Sanchez a new bumper deal worth £300,000 a week.

The Chile star’s future is uncertain with just 12 months left on his current contract.

Manchester City and PSG have been trying to prise him away from the Emirates but are yet to have a bid accepted.

And Arsene Wenger is stressing that Sanchez will stay put even if it means he leaves on a free in the summer.

However now the Daily Mail claim Sanchez has been offered a deal worth a staggering £300,000 a week.

Sanchez is a doubt for the start of the season and will not face Leicester tonight.

Tottenham at war

7:00: Tottenham are verging on crisis after Danny Rose’s explosive interview earlier this week.

Rose complained about the club’s transfer policy and the wage structure imposed by Daniel Levy.

And now it has emerged a number of the club’s stars are backing Rose, who was fined for his comments.

The Times report that the players are increasing the pressure on Levy to break the structure that sees them earn far less than rival players.

Manchester United close in on defender

6.50: Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Serge Aurier.

The PSG right-back has reportedly agreed a five-year deal to join Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

He has launched an appeal to overcome the legal issues currently stalling the move and is hopeful of pushing the deal through.

Goal claim the Ivory Coast international hopes the issue can be sorted quickly.

Chelsea deal in hours

6.30: Joao Cancelo should be a Chelsea player in a matter of hours.

The Valencia right-back has emerged as Antonio Conte’s number one target following Danilo’s move to Manchester City.

And Chelsea believe they have wrapped up a deal for the 23-year-old.
