Blues tipped to sign Guarin and Draxler

Chelsea are set to snap up Inter Milan’s Fredy Guarin from under the nose of Manchester United, the Sunday People say.

United boss David Moyes is widely reported to be interested in the midfielder and forward Javier Hernandez has been linked with a move to the San Siro as part of an exchange deal.

Arsenal, Atletico Madrid and Roma are also said to be keen on Gaurin.

The Sunday Express, who link Tottenham with the player, also suggest Chelsea are now favourites to sign him.

Chelsea are also touted as the favourites to sign Schalke’s Julian Draxler, who is said to be a target for several Premier League clubs.

Reports in Germany have indicated that Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal want Draxler.

The Mail on Sunday suggest Chelsea are well placed to sign him, with Blues boss Jose Mourinho apparently willing to offer Kevin de Bruyne in exchange.

The same paper also report that Manchester United are set to open contract talks with Wayne Rooney and are confident of keeping him despite Chelsea’s ongoing interest.

Meanwhile, the Sunday Mirror report that Chelsea captain John Terry, whose contract expires at the end of the season, is to be offered a one-year deal by the club.

And the People say former Brentford manager Uwe Rosler could be set to sign Chelsea youngster Patrick Bamford on loan for Wigan.

Striker Bamford is currently on loan at League One club MK Dons.
