Chelsea are eyeing up a summer deal for Borussia Dortmund’s exciting striker Alexander Isak.
The London club are waiting to learn the result of their appeal against a two-window transfer ban handed down by Fifa as they have lodged their appeal, but that has not stopped the club from eyeing up possible summer signings as they seek to get back to the very top of the game.
Maurizio Sarri is ready and waiting to delve into his transfer kitty and try to improve on e few key areas of the pitch in the next few windows, and adding a new striker of two will be a priority as Gonzalo Higuaín and Olivier Giroud have simply not been good enough this season.
And one name that has been linked with a move to the Premier League is that of Isak, who is on loan in the Netherlands at Willem II and has scored eleven goals in eleven appearances for the Dutch side, with the Sunday Mirror claim Sarri sent scouts to watch Isak in action in his club’s last outing against Ajax, and were impressed by what they saw after the Swedish talent netted.
Meanwhile, Toni Kroos wants to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season.
Regarded as one of the finest passes of the ball in world football, Kroos has been part of the Madrid side that has won three Champions League titles on the spin and was part of the German side that won the World Cup just four years ago.
However, he has not looked like a very happy an this season and he has been dropping hints that he is ready to leave the club, with a whole host of Premier League and Italian clubs interested in trying to secure a transfer deal, with a fee of around £50 million on the cards.
And according to reports on the AS website, Kroos’ words have not gone down well with Real’s hierarchy, and with the club looking to overhaul an ageing squad, there is a feeling that the Spaniards are ready to cash in and let him leave for the right price, especially after he reportedly informed the club that he wants to leave.
