With Chelsea ready to sign a striker and potentially ditch three, the transfer window is finally hotting up.
Here’s the latest and greatest tittle tattle.
Real talk 👏
Let the merry-go-round commence! Gonzalo Higuaín missed AC Milan‘s game on Wednesday as he hopes to complete a move to Chelsea. According to Sky Italia, an initial six-month loan deal has been agreed.
That move has delayed Michy Batshuayi‘s loan switch to Monaco, with Sky Italia claiming he could replace Higuaín at San Siro. According to the Telegraph, the Belgian still wants to move to Ligue 1.
Meanwhile, Higuaín’s arrival at Stamford Bridge would pave the way for Álvaro Morata‘s exit. Atlético Madrid are closing in on the Spanish striker, report Sky Sports.
And one last one on Chelsea strikers: Catalan daily Sport say Olivier Giroud is an option as Barcelona look for a back-up forward.
Fake news 😡
It looks like reports that Arsenal had been offered the chance to sign James Rodriguez on loan were a little premature.
“He wants to stay with FC Bayern, as he once said during a fan club visit, ” Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac told reporters on Wednesday. “He is highly motivated and focused.”
