Transfer gossip: Blues again linked with Bacca and Ighalo

A round-up of the latest transfer speculation involving Chelsea…

The Daily Star again say Chelsea are keen to sign AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca.

It is claimed that the Blues are ‘on alert’ after the 29-year-old’s agent appeared to suggest that Bacca might move in the summer.

Chelsea have also again been linked with Watford striker Odion Ighalo, this time by the Daily Mirror.

Ighalo, 26, is one of a host of forwards Chelsea have been reported to be chasing in recent months.

And Wednesday’s Mirror declares that the Blues, Arsenal and Manchester United are all keen to sign him in the summer.

Watford have an agreement in place that means they will listen to offers of around £12m for Ighalo, the newspaper reports.

The Hornets have been linked with Isaac Success, a striker with Spanish club Granada, which has prompted more speculation that Ighalo could leave Vicarage Road.

And there continues to be speculation over the future of Eden Hazard by the likes of Metro, with bookmakers cutting the odds on him leaving Chelsea.
