The latest transfer rumors from around the footballing world, including Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and much more.

Chelsea target Lukaku at £105m

The Blues could be prepared to smash their transfer record fee for Romelu Lukaku.

Inter Milan won’t consider any offers below £105 million for their star striker. Lukaku, of course, has been in sublime form this season. He’s contributed 21 goals and eight assists in 32 Serie A appearances alone.

Re-signing their former striker is reportedly Chelsea’s most realistic option as Harry Kane is unlikely to join them and there is stiff competition for Erling Haaland. [Daily Mail]

Dortmund enter four-horse race for Ben White

Borussia Dortmund are the latest club to throw their hat in the ring for Ben White.

The Brighton defender is a man in demand, with at least three clubs interested in him. These are Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, and Arsenal. [The Sun]

Aston Villa on high alert for £40m Abraham

The Villains are exploring the possibility of re-signing Tammy Abraham in the summer.

The 23-year-old previously enjoyed a prolific campaign on loan at Villa in 2018/19 in the Championship.

It’s now rumored that Chelsea are prepared to part with Abraham after the striker fell out of favor under new manager Thomas Tuchel. The Blues, therefore, will consider offers of around £40 million. [Mirror]

Coutinho to join Everton?

Former Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho could allegedly complete a £35m transfer to Everton.

Carlo Ancelotti is confident of a deal for the struggling Barcelona star. The Toffees boss apparently plans to pair Coutinho with James Rodriguez in to help boost the club’s attack. [The Sun]

Christensen eyes new Chelsea deal

Despite no talks being held at present, Andreas Christensen is ready to put pen-to-paper on a new contract with Chelsea.

The Dane has come on leaps and bounds under Thomas Tuchel. He’s played a key part in Chelsea’s improved defensive record since Frank Lampard. Hence, he is ready to extend a nine-year association with the club.

Christensen’s current deal at Stamford Bridge expires in the summer of 2022. [Metro]
