Transfer News Today: Chelsea's £70m Hazard Replacement And West Ham To Beat Barcelona To Striker

Hazard Out, Henrik In

Eden Hazard finally realised the season had started last weekend as he grabbed a brace against Bournemouth but apparently Antonio Conte has already seen enough and wants to bring in another number 10 to build his team around.

The man he has identified is Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The Dortmund has been excellent since arriving in Germany and it would take a seriously big offer to drag him away from the Bundesliga side.

Luckily for Chelsea fans, Roman Abramovich has sanctioned a £70m deal for the Armenian, in what would lay down a real marker to all their title challengers.

Hammers Hoping To Pip Barca To Striker

West Ham are determined to get a big signing in this summer and they have cast their net a little further and are hoping to real in Celta Vigo star Nolito.

The Spaniard was a target for Barcelona in January and may well be again this summer but Slaven Bilic hope that the promise of a regular starting berth and a healthy contract may tempt him into a move to England.

The 29-year-old has scored 11 goals this term, despite missing two months of the season and is almost certain to move on this summer. Thanks to his age a fee is expected to be just £14m, which looks a bargain for a player of his quality.

Keeper Kasper Eyed By Barca

Leicester are within touching distance of a miracle but that miracle could be torn apart this summer with the world’s elite eyeing their top talent.

One man who is sure to get attention is Kasper Schemeichel. The Danish stopper has been immense this term and that has not escaped the attention of Barcelona, who want to offer him the chance to replace Ter Stegen at the Camp Nou.

Ter Stegen looks set for Man City and the Catalan club are eager to have a genuine competitor for their Chilean number one in place. An offer of £15m is being lined up and it will be interesting to see if the Foxes can convince Kasper to stay In the East Midlands.
