These are the latest Chelsea transfer news, rumours for today:
Hazard sets for Madrid £100million move
Eden Hazard looks likely to leave for Real Madrid if the Spanish giants match Chelsea’s asking price of over £100million.
Palace want Batshuayi permanent deal
Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed he would be “very happy” to sign Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi on a permanent basis.
Chelsea lose another youngster
Young Chelsea striker Martell Taylor-Crossdale has agreed a deal with Hoffenheim after rejecting an offer to stay at Stamford Bridge, report Sky Sports.
A Toulon Tournament winner with England Under-18s in 2017, Taylor-Crossdate failed to make an impact on the first team and is now set to undergo a medical with the Bundesliga outfit.
Loftus-Cheek to leave the Bridge?
With Chelsea currently facing a two-window Fifa transfer ban, the last thing they need is more first-team players considering an exit.
However, The Sun reports that Ruben Loftus-Cheek will only put pen to paper on a new contract if Maurizio Sarri gives him assurances over his role next season.
The England international has impressed in the Europa League this term, but with Champions League football on the horizon, Loftus-Cheek may not fancy warming the bench for much longer.
Coutinho to Chelsea?
Goal reports that Chelsea could look to replace Eden Hazard with Philippe Coutinho – providing their transfer ban is delayed, of course.
With Barcelona keen to offload the Brazilian after two underwhelming seasons at Camp Nou, Coutinho could be the right sort of player at the right sort of price for the Blues.
