Good morning football fans
Chelsea have been offered the chance to sign Atletico Madrid star duo Joao Felix and Matheus Cunha in the January transfer window.
According to the Evening Standard, the Blues had a chance to sign Felix for £86million before losing Armando Broja to injury for the remainder of the season.
The forward has reportedly fallen out with Atletico boss Diego Simeone and appears to be on the way out of the Wanda Metropolitano with several interested clubs.
Wolves and Leeds are also worried the west Londoners could hijack their bid for talented striker Cunha.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are growing more confident about signing Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham
According to the Daily Mirror, Reds owners Fenway Sports Group are looking to make good on their promise to manager Jurgen Klopp to land Bellingham.
Klopp has told FSG the star midfielder is his main target and needs their financial backing ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Merseysiders are believed to be ahead of Manchester City, Manchester United and Real Madrid in the pursuit of the England international.
The 19-year-old’s father, Mark, is said to be in favor of a move to Liverpool and the player’s friendship with team captain Jordan Henderson helped.
However, Dortmund won’t let the ex-Birmingham star go for less than £100m.
And Everton are on the verge of finalizing a new deal for Anthony Gordon, who was targeted by Chelsea in the summer.
But the Toffees are now on the verge of keeping 21-year-old Gordon at the club long-term, according to the Daily Telegraph.
In doing so, the Merseysiders will stave off any renewed interest in the winger when the January transfer window opens next month.
The Blues had turned down several offers for the England Under-21 international as Everton were unwilling to sell their valuable fortune, which they valued at the time at £60million.
Tottenham were another club interested in Gordon, whose current contract expires in 2025.
Finally, Aston Villa goalkeeper’s agent Emiliano Martinez has hinted that his client’s future is not in Villa Park amid alleged interest from Bayern Munich.
Martinez played a key role in Argentina’s World Cup win as he dominated Sunday’s penalty shoot-out against France.
Speaking to TuttoMercatoWeb, Gustavo Goni was asked if his client could switch to Serie A in the near future.
Goni replied: “Today there are few teams that can afford a goalkeeper like him. But Serie A, well, why not? Clearly aiming high, for the Champions League.”
Throughout his career, Martinez failed to play in Europe’s premier competition.
But according to Sky Sports, the 30-year-old keeper could get the opportunity from Bayern.
The same report suggests the German champions are interested in Villa’s No. 1 after Manuel Neuer was ruled out for the rest of the season after breaking his leg.
