Chelsea will have a very busy last few weeks of the summer transfer window. At this point, the Blues have been linked with players in almost every position, as part of a clear-out that will see the likes of Timo Werner and Malang Sarr depart. Wesley Fofana is the main target in defense, but Thomas Tuchel is also looking for a right wing-back. Frenkie de Jong remains a midfield option if he decides to leave Barcelona, and club teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also a target for the Blues. Here is the most recent Chelsea transfer news and rumours… Wesley Fofana’s Chelsea hope to reduce Leicester’s asking price for Fofana due to the Foxes’ cash-flow issues. The Independent reports that one of Fofana or James Maddison, rated at £80 million and £60 million, will most likely have to be sold by Leicester due to financial problems in their owners’ duty-free business caused by the pandemic. Thomas Tuchel is said to want to re-bid for the French centre-back, with a £10m valuation difference between the two clubs.

The Catalans have reportedly been unable to sign any new players for LaLiga due to a wage cap shortfall in the division. According to the Telegraph, Barcelona will hold talks with Chelsea this week in order to sell either Aubameyang or Memphis Depay. Coach Xavi would prefer to keep Aubameyang, but if the Blues are serious, his options may be limited. De Jong, Frenkie Speaking of Barcelona, De Jong has told teammates that he would prefer a move to Chelsea over a move to Manchester United, according to Mundo Deportivo. The Athletic report that the club has threatened legal action against the Dutchman after Joan Laporta stated that he wants to keep him. Chelsea may be about to enter the picture at just the right time, with an apparent desire to pay off the unpaid wages as part of their bid to sign De Jong.
