Frank Lampard is keen to bolsters his squad at the end of the season and improve the side enough to get back challenging for that Premier League title, and needs a bit more quality and creativity on the wings. It has been claimed over the past few days that Chelsea are ready to get the cheque-book in the summer window and bring Sancho to the premier League for a fee of around £70 million.

However, Dortmund reportedly rate him at £100m, with Chelsea among those thought to be interested, and although they have claimed that they are will to letting the young man leave, they also claim that it would be unlikely that clubs can meet his asking price.Watzke said:““If Jadon approaches us and says he wants to leave no matter what – which has not happened so far – and a club wants to spend what we are asking for, we will discuss it.“But I don’t think a club will pay the fee we want.”

Look, until the transfer window is closed and the players announces that he does not want to leave, there will continue to be alot of transfer speculation about where he will end up in the coming months.But all we know is, the lad is brilliant, he needs to come to the premier League and any of the top clubs will be very lucky to sign him, even for that £100 million fee.

“In the conversations with me, the coach often emphasised how much he wanted me, how much he valued me as a person.Of course it’s hard to give up an oasis of well-being like the one I’ve had in Leipzig for years, but you can only get ahead in a career if you take the next step.“This season was the crossroads, otherwise I would always have stayed with Leipzig.”

Chelsea target Nathan Ake is reportedly a growing target for Manchester City.The Dutchman has drawn admiring glances from elsewhere with his accomplished displays over the last three years at AFC Bournemouth.But with relegation for the Cherries looking a more-and-more likely prospect despite his best efforts this season, Ake looks set to move on this summer.

According to The Athletic, City had the 25-year-old watched before Christmas as they showed an initial interest.Pep Guardiola's side decided against making a January move for the ex-Chelsea defender, however, despite the long-term injury suffered by Aymeric Laporte.The Frenchman is now fully fit, but City have decided that they would still like another left-sided defender.

At the time of Laporte's injury, a shortlist was drawn up including Milan Skriniar, Dan-Axel Zagadou, Mykola Matviyenko and David Alaba.With Bayern deeming Guardiola-favourite Alaba as important enough to keep despite his impending 2021 contract expiry – Ake has now moved to the top of their defensive wishlist.

Chelsea have been handed a huge boost in their pursuit of Kai Havertz.Bayer Leverkusen's failure to qualify for the Champions League means they will miss out on some of the riches on offer at Europe's top table.

Well, reports say Leverkusen will be willing to knock £20million off their asking price for Havertz.The 21-year-old attacker will now be available for around £70m rather than £90m.

It's still a huge ask given the finances of all clubs in light of the coronavirus crisis.But it does open the door slightly to Lampard adding to the signings of Ziyech and Werner.

Bayer Leverkusen's failure to qualify for the Champions League is set to drop Kai Havertz's asking price by £20m, it has been claimed.The Bundesliga star had been rated at around £90m. But it is thought he could be bought for around £70m after they failed to secure a seat at Europe's top table.

However, Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz reckons his man will stay.He said: “I don’t feel that he is thinking too much about transferring.“I certainly don’t have the impression that this will be his last game for the club. He is still under contract with us and I have to assume that he will be with us next season too.”

Chelsea newboy Hakim Ziyech has penned an emotional farewell to Ajax.“The last 4 years were amazing. I don’t even know where to start for expressing how I’ve experienced this journey,” he wrote on Instagram.

“I guess making the Europa League final, making the Champions League semi-final, winning the Johan Cruijff Schaal, winning the KNVB Beker, winning the Eredivisie and becoming football player of the year says enough about how beautiful these years were.

“I want to thank everyone at Ajax for making this next step possible. You have all played a part in my progression over the last years. I hope you are proud of that, at least I’m proud to have worn the jersey of the best team in the Netherlands. Until we meet again.”
