Chelsea Transfer Live: Star player sets for medical, updates on Erling Haaland and more

Here are the latest transfer updates as the summer transfer business is going on gradually and clubs are getting to sign their top targets.

Star Player Set for Norwich medicalsJust like Hudson-Odoi, Billy Gilmour has also made his debut under the management of Frank Lampard. However, due to the new arrivals, the Scottish international has had a limited game time. And according to the latest reports, the midfielder is poised to undergo a medical ahead of finalizing a loan move to Norwich City. Talks are believed to be ongoing and if everything goes well, Gilmour will join the newly-promoted Canaries for the duration of the 2021/22 campaign. Negotiations is now at final stages between Chelsea and Norwich for Billy Gilmour. He’s set to join Norwich from Chelsea on loan until June 2022.

Club Bid £60m Plus Player For HaalandIt’s no longer news that Chelsea are looking to bring Erling Haaland to west London this summer. But with Dortmund’s past refusal to let the player go, many thought the blues interest in the player would cool off. However, according to the latest reports from team talk, a credible journalist, Ekrem Konur, has now said that Chelsea has made a £60 million bid, plus Tammy Abraham, for the services of Erling Haaland. Since his move to Dortmund, Haaland has transformed into one of Europe’s elite strikers. And there is no doubt that he would be an improvement to Chelsea’s attack but that’s if a deal is completed.

Bellingham Set for new contractChelsea have been dealt a blow in their hopes of signing Jude Bellingham as the midfielder is in line for a new contract at Borussia Dortmund. Bellingham was a key player for the German club last season, and earned an England call-up to Euro 2020 as a result. West Ham’s high valuation of Declan Rice has forced Chelsea to consider other options and it was felt Bellingham could be acquired for a smaller fee. However, The Sun report that the soon to be 18-year-old is now in line for a two-year extension at the Westfalenstadion, effectively ending any chances of him moving on this summer. Football London report that Chelsea could now switch attentions to Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez.

Kai Havertz is Germany’s understated star primed to down EnglandKai Havertz has endured his fair share of highs and lows but, on his return to his new home, the 22-year-old is primed to down England. The past 10 months have been a whirlwind for the Chelsea star. Bogged down by his mammoth £89 million fee, it has been a case of sink or swim for the former Bayer Leverkusen star once targeted by Europe’s biggest clubs as a youngster. The brutal reality is that in modern football time is not afforded to players to settle and Havertz had been harshly dubbed as a mega-money flop mere weeks into his new life in London. But the circumstances behind Havertz’s slow start at Chelsea have been unjustly overlooked.

Chelsea star looks to land pay rise of around £40,000-a-week
It looks like Chelsea are about to cost themselves a fair bit by delaying contract talks with Antonio Rudiger, as Eurosport report that the defender now feels he can earn close to £200,000-a-week. Transfer insider Dean Jones writes that the Blues’ decision to delay contract talks with the centre-back, whose deal expires next summer, could now cost them around £40,000-a-week extra. It’s detailed that Rudiger was looking for a raise to £160,000-a-week from his current £140,000-a-week terms when talks were ongoing in March, but the German is now in a position to demand even more. Chelsea pushed back talks at that point and Rudiger has since gone on to further reiterate how important he is to the team, turning in solid displays as they went on to win the Champions League.
