Chelsea ‘favourites’ for Grealish transfer, Blues star wanted by Lazio

Focus for many is on the ongoing European Championships, though clubs are still trying to get transfer deals over the line.

Thomas Tuchel is no different at Chelsea with the German looking to strengthen his Champions League winners this summer.

The Blues have the backing of Roman Abramovich as they look to do battle at the top of the Premier League.

Tuchel is in his first transfer window having replaced Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge at the end of January.

And it seems he has his eyes set on plenty of players as Daily Star Sport rounds up the best of the Chelsea transfer gossip…

Chelsea 'favourites' for Grealish

Jack Grealish missed out as England beat Croatia in their Euro 2020 opener though plenty of sides still want the Aston Villa star.

Grealish has often been linked with a move to Manchester United though Chelsea are also keen on the midfielder.

Spanish outlet Fichajes even go so far as to say the Blues have now emerged as the favourites to sign Grealish this summer.

Blues star wanted by Lazio

Kepa Arrizabalaga lost his spot as Chelsea's first-choice goalkeeper to Edouard Mendy and could now be on his way out of Stamford Bridge.

According to La Repubblica, Lazio are keen on the keeper with sporting director Igli Tare wanting to work out a loan deal that sees Chelsea cover half of his salary.

They add the Blues don't see Kepa in their future, and Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri could tempt his former club into a deal.

Tuchel to rival Man Utd

Just like Grealish, Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs this summer.

And Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo claim Chelsea are also now interested, and are ready to rival Manchester United in the race.

Bayern Munich, Juventus, and PSG are also ready to do battle with the report adding Atletico are prepared to listen to offers for as little as £68m.
