Sarri ready to complete bargain Alderweireld deal as Prem striker opens up on possible Chelsea transfer switch
Chelsea are looking to sign Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld during the summer transfer window for a cut-priced fee.
Maurizio Sarri will look to delve into his transfer kitty over the summer transfer window in order to try and acquire the type of players that would come in and improve the squad, with Alderweireld linked with a move as si is no secret that the Belgian has failed to agree a new contract with Tottenham.
Reports have suggested Spurs are not willing to meet his wage demands, with many media outlets reporting he has become frustrated at the clubs inability to hand him the type of contract he deserves.[the_ad id=”164″]
And the Metro reckon we could make a move and try to bring the Belgian star to Stamford Bridge in a deal that could be worth just £25 million.
The Belgian is not just one of the best central defenders in the Premier League, but he is one of the best defenders in Europe right now and we would be very lucky to nail down his service.
Meanwhile, Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has announced t he is happy where he is right now, despite links with a mega money move to Stamford Bridge.
The 27-year-old is under contract at Bournemouth until 2022 and has scored or assisted 21 goals this season, but his impressive performances over the past 12 months has seen Chelsea show a strong interest in trying to get a transfer deal done, as Maurizio Sarri looks to improve his front-line.
We have been linked with the likes of Mauro Icardi and Robert Lewandowski, but Sarri also needs someone like Wilson to come in and help ease the load if another striker arrives, with reports suggesting we are ready to pay close to £30 million to try and secure a transfer deal.
But Wilson told Sky Sports: ‘I signed a long-term contract, I’m happy down there – I’m playing football.
‘I’m happiest when I’m on the pitch. I never want to go and sort of be somewhere that I’m not going to play.
‘I never want to see myself not playing at Bournemouth even, being on the bench and things like that.
‘Any player has aspirations to play for their country, like I’ve managed to do thankfully, and play in the Champions League – different big occasions and big stages.
‘I’ve been linked [with big clubs] from a young age when I’m doing well, so I tend not to buy into it really. It can sway you off what you need to do and take away your focus.’
