Transfer gossip: Chelsea linked with Turkish youngster Akman

Some of the recent transfer speculation involving Chelsea…

Chelsea have been linked with Turkish youngster Ali Akman.

The striker, 18, has scored nine goals in 16 appearances for Bursaspor this season.

His performances have prompted reports in the Turkish media claiming that several top European clubs are keen on him.

And the Daily Mail claim both Chelsea and Arsenal are showing an interest.

Tomori ‘wanted by AC Milan’

AC Milan are said to have made an enquiry about Fikayo Tomori.

A number of UK newspapers have picked up on Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano tweeting that Milan are interested in the Chelsea defender.

It comes after Blues boss Frank Lampard confirmed that Tomori could leave on loan.

Rice speculation continues

Declan Rice wants a move to Chelsea and has no interest in joining Manchester United, according to the Mirror.

Both clubs have been linked with the England international, who has repeatedly been tipped to leave West Ham.

He was on Chelsea’s books before joining the Hammers and has been linked with a return during successive transfer windows.

Rice is again being touted for a move to Stamford Bridge and the Mirror say he is keen to sign for the Blues.

The newspaper quotes ‘a source close to the player’ as saying: “Dec has been flattered by interest in him but he doesn’t see himself moving to Manchester. It’s obvious where he’d like his next move to be.”

Blues again linked with Upamecano

Chelsea also continue to be linked with RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano.

The France international has been touted for a move to the Premier League many times.

And the Mail claim Chelsea are interested in a potential deal to take him to Stamford Bridge.
