Transfer gossip: Chelsea again linked with Rugani

The transfer speculation involving Chelsea in Sunday’s newspapers…

Chelsea continue to be linked with Juventus defender Daniele Rugani.

The Sunday Express say Italy international Rugani, 24, has started learning English ahead of a possible move to London.

He was among Chelsea’s targets during the summer transfer window and the Blues have been tipped to move for him in January.

The Sunday Express say Rugani, who played under Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri at Empoli, is also wanted by Arsenal but that the Gunners would need to reduce their wage bill before they can bring anyone in.

The newspaper also declares that Rugani, who is under contract at Juve until 2021, would cost in excess of £30m.

Saurez also linked

Chelsea are interested in Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, the Daily Star Sunday claim.

It is claimed that Sarri, who currently has a wealth of midfield options, tried to sign Suarez during his time as Napoli boss and is again keen on the Spain international.
