Transfer gossip: Bournemouth reportedly offer Chelsea £18m for Ake

Some of the latest transfer speculation ahead of Tuesday’s deadline – some of it quite bizarre. 

Bournemouth have offered Chelsea £18m for Nathan Ake, according to the Mail.

The 21-year-old was recently recalled by the Blues from a season-long loan at Bournemouth.

The Mail say the Cherries want to sign him on a permanent basis and the deal is being considered.

Chelsea keen on Wszolek, Italian reports claim

It has been claimed that Chelsea are interested in signing Pawel Wszolek ahead of the transfer deadline.

The Polish winger is on a season-long loan at QPR from Italian club Hellas Verona.

Transfer-gossip website TuttomercatoWeb and Italian publication La Gazzetta dello Sport have suggested that Chelsea would like to sign him.

Wszolek, 24, cannot play for another club this season as he featured for Verona at the start of the campaign.

Blues linked with Biabiany

Sky claim Chelsea want to sign Inter Milan winger Jonathan Biabiany on loan.

The 28-year-old France international has made just three first-team appearances for Inter this season.

Sky in Italy claim Chelsea have made an approach to take him on loan and that Antonio Conte has admired Biabiany since the Blues boss’ time in charge at Juventus.

Some Italian media reports have since suggested that Inter have rejected an approach from Chelsea for Biabiany.

Kolašinac bid reportedly rejected

Schalke are refusing to sell left-back Sead Kolašinac, again according to Sky in Italy.

Chelsea have shown an interest in the 23-year-old Bosnia & Herzegovina international ahead of Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

Kolašinac, who is wanted by Juventus, is in the final year of his contract.

Sky in Italy say talks have taken place between Chelsea and Schalke and that the German club have made it clear they will not part with him.

Sky reckon Chelsea want Dembele

Sky have also claimed that Chelsea are interested in signing Celtic’s former Fulham forward Moussa Dembele.

Dembele was linked with a number of Premier League clubs, including Chelsea, prior from his move to Glasgow from west London in the summer.

Sky say Celtic do not want to sell the 20-year-old for less than £40m.
