Transfer gossip: Chelsea again linked with Richarlison

The stories in Sunday’s newspapers involving the area’s clubs…

Chelsea are yet again being linked with Richarlison.

The Brazilian forward’s representatives have previously tried to secure him a move to Stamford Bridge and reports duly claimed that Chelsea wanted him.

The Blues were linked with Richarlison prior to Watford signing him and prior to them selling him to Everton.

Now it is again being claimed that Chelsea are showing an interest in him ahead of a possible move.

The Daily Star Sunday claim Chelsea are monitoring Richarlison, 21, along with AC Milan, Paris St-Germain and Atletico Madrid – and that Everton want £80m for him.

Meanwhile, the Sunday Mirror claim Chelsea are among English clubs keen on Ajax defender Matthijs De Ligt but reluctant to deal with his new agent Mino Raiola.

And Manchester United have again been linked with Ryan Sessegnon.

Speculation about the Fulham youngster’s future has been increased by Whites boss Claudio Ranieri controversially leaving him out of the side.

The Sunday Express claim Sessegnon is stalling over a new contract at Craven Cottage and that United are planning a £50m move him this summer.
