Sanchez Race, Carroll Loan, and Kante Wanted
Reports have suggested that Chelsea have made a late attempt to bring Alexis Sanchez to the club. The Chilean’s future at Arsenal seems all-but over, and he has been interesting both Manchester United and Manchester City in recent weeks. City seem to have withdrawn from the race, but reports claim Chelsea have made a last-minute attempt to bring him across London. United seem favourites for the winger’s signature, but that hasn’t stopped the Blues from making an attempt to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea’s reported loan bid to sign Andy Carroll is set to fail, as West Ham would prefer a permanent transfer. The Blues are interested in signing a striker, as Michy Batshuayi is likely to depart on loan soon. West Ham striker Carroll is one option being considered by the club, despite only scoring twice for the Hammers so far this season. Antonio Conte’s side might consider making a permanent offer for Carroll as the January transfer window continues.
Chelsea are set to make an offer for Watford player Richarlison in the summer, according to reports. The Blues have reportedly held talks with the Brazilian’s agent, and will go in for him at the end of the season, as they know Watford won’t sanction a January move. Richarlison has been very impressive this season, scoring five and assisting five in the Premier League so far.
PSG have made N’Golo Kante their number one transfer target for next summer’s transfer window, reports have claimed. The French side are looking for a long-term successor for Thiago Motta, and they have earmarked Kante as a potential signing. Since making the move from Ligue 1 in 2015, Kante has won two Premier League titles, and was named as PFA Player of the Year in 2017. After three seasons away, PSG want to bring the midfielder back to France, and are set to test Chelsea’s resolve with a bid in the summer.
