Chelsea morning report: inter want Moses stay, blues to end Aubameyang chase, Chilwell ‘tempted by Chelsea move’
Inter want Moses beyond the season’s end
Inter Milan are hopeful they can extend Victor Moses’ stay at the San Siro beyond conclusion of the current season, report Calcio Mercato.
The Chelsea defender joined Inter in January on a six-month loan deal, having played for Fenerbahce on loan during the first half of the campaign.
While the Italian club – who have certainly taken a liking to Premier League players of late – would be willing to taking Moses on a permanent basis.
They would require Chelsea to reduce their £11million asking price, however.
Chelsea ‘end interest in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after Timo Werner agreement’
Chelsea reportedly intend to end their interest in securing a deal for Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
With the Gabon international having just over a year left on his contract, it has been suggested that the versatile attacker could be provided with an opportunity to make the switch across London.
However, according to ESPN, the Blues will not move for the 30-year-old if they can wrap up the signing of RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner.
On Thursday, it was claimed that Chelsea were prepared to meet the release clause of the in-form Germany international before June 15, the set cut-off date.
Having already agreed to bring in Hakim Ziyech from Ajax, the duo would act as suitable replacements for the outgoing Willian and Pedro.
If Werner does not move to Stamford Bridge, it is suggested that Chelsea may return for Aubameyang at a later date.
Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell ‘tempted by Chelsea move’
Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell is supposedly interested in a move to Chelsea amid speculation regarding a potential summer transfer.
Blues manager Frank Lampard is said to be in the market for a new left-back ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, and Chilwell has been persistently linked with a move to Stamford Brdge.
The 23-year-old has enjoyed an impressive campaign with Leicester – registering two goals and three assists from 23 Premier League appearances.
According to The Mirror, Lampard remains firmly keen on a deal for Chilwell, and the player himself is tempted by a move to the English capital.
However, the report also claims that Chilwell has not informed Leicester of any desire to leave, and the Foxes would likely command a hefty figure for the England international.
It also remains to be seen how Chelsea’s transfer dealings will be impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, and Porto’s Alex Telles has been touted as a potential cut-price alternative.
Chilwell still has another four years left to run on his Leicester contract.
