Latest Chelsea transfer rumours: €30m deal close, Inter Milan swap deal, Conor Gallagher battle


Chelsea head into the new season with plenty of excitement after spending well over £200m overhauling the squad.

But there could well be more incomings with a goalkeeper and possibly a defensive midfielder still to be signed.

And with that in mind, we run you through the latest Blues transfer gossip below.

AC Milan close to Bakayoko deal

AC Milan are close to landing Chelsea outcast Tiemoue Bakayoko. 

Sunday’s edition of Corriere dello Sport reports there’s now a general agreement between the two clubs over the transfer. 

The Serie A club will pay around €3.5m for a season long loan, and they’ll have a clause enabling a permanent transfer for €30m.  

Palace favourites to sign Gallagher

Chelsea are set to loan out young gun Conor Gallagher when he comes to terms on a new deal.

Leeds United are ‘hanging on’ in the race but Crystal Palace remain the favourites.

That’s according to The Sun, who state that the Whites want to sign the 20-year-old midfielder on loan.

Kante development

Inter Milan will offload up to three players to fund a deal to sign Chelsea midfielder Kante.

According to Calcio Mercato, Antonio Conte is desperate to link up with his old midfielder this summer, and given the Blues’ reported pursuit of Rice, a move could well be on the cards.

It’s reported, however, Chelsea will accept no less than £60million – perhaps even more – and Inter are now on a fund-raising exercise.
