Chelsea tipped to beat Liverpool to signing of PSV star

Chelsea are being tipped to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Zakaria Bakkali.

Metro have picked up a report on Spanish website Fichajes which has suggested that the Blues have moved ahead of Liverpool in a race to sign the 18-year-old.

Other reports in Spain say Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Arsenal and Manchester United also want him.

Meanwhile, The Express have added Manchester City to the list of clubs they say are looking to sign Barcelona’s former Manchester United defender Gerard Pique.

Chelsea are said to be keen to buy the Spain international, who has also been linked with a return to United.

It has been reported that Pique, 27, could be available for £24m.

The player wants to stay at Barca and was this week quoted as saying: “At the moment I’m not thinking about leaving.

“I’m a Barcelona fan, I have been since I was a kid. I want to stay here.”
