Transfer News Today: Chelsea Target Premier League Ace To Save Season


Grabbing Graziano

Chelsea have identified the man to save their season according to reports, and it is none other than Southampton hitman Graziano Pelle.

The Italian is Saints’ top scorer this season with seven goals, but he was left out of the team by manager Ronald Koeman for last weekend’s defeat at Crystal Palace.

Chelsea believe that they can pick up the 30-year-old on a short-term deal according to reports in Italy, which also state that Manchester United are monitoring events.

Could it happen? The Blues are 51.00 to go down

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is already planning for next season, and is lining up a free transfer move for the Schalke defender Joel Matip, who can also play in defensive midfield.

The 24-year-old Cameroon international was linked with a £10m switch to Newcastle in the summer, but Klopp sees him as the perfect addition to his squad for 2016/17, with Kolo Toure ready to exit when his contract expires.

Liverpool are 1.95 to finish in the top four

Liverpool are also interested in the Stoke schemer Bojan, but they’re in a tug of war with Manchester United and Chelsea for his services according to reports.

The one-time Spanish international has rediscovered his form at the Britannia Stadium, and would arguably have moved on already if it hadn’t been for injuries.
