Chelsea linked with ‘the new Oscar’

Chelsea are keeping tabs on Brazilian midfield star Bernard, according to The Sun.

The 20-year-old, dubbed the new Oscar, is said to be valued at £6m by his club Atletico Mineiro and is apparently being touted as a possible successor to Frank Lampard.

The Daily Mirror say Chelsea are still chasing Bayer Leverkusen striker Andre Schurrle.

QPR boss Harry Redknapp plans to approach his former club Tottenham to see if they are willing to sell Scott Parker, the Mirror say.

The England midfielder has not played since the European Championship but is one of a host of players Redknapp is said to be keen to sign.

The Mirror also say Rob Green is likely to become Redknapp’s number one keeper and that Rangers are vying with Liverpool and Fulham for the signing of Aston Villa striker Darren Bent.

The Guardian and the Daily Express also suggest Redknapp is keen on Bent – another player he managed at Spurs.

The Daily Mail say Redknapp’s recent appointment could lead to an exodus of highly-paid players, but they are determined not to be forced out of the club by him.

It is suggested that Esteban Granero, Julio Cesar, Jose Bosingwa and Ji-sung Park are among those who could be sold.

And The Scotsman report that Joe Jordan is out of the running for the Scotland manager’s job as he is working alongside Redknapp at Loftus Road.
