Here is Sunday’s news and gossip concerning Chelsea:
The Blues have pinpointed Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic as the man they want to replace Loic Remy, who looks set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, according to the Daily Express.
The 20-year-old has been attracting plenty of Premier League interest, but wants to play Champions League football.
Mohamed Salah appears to be on his way out this summer, with the Guardian reporting that Fiorentina have made an “insane” contract offer, according to a director from the Serie A side.
The Egyptian spent the second half of last season with the club, as part of the deal that saw Juan Cuadrado move to London, and made a big impression, hence the desire to keep him permanently.
However, the Daily Mirror report that the 23-year-old is actually closing in on a £5m move to Inter Milan.
They suggest that Fiorentina’s contract offer is short of what the winger wants, however he remains keen to stay in Italy, thus tempting him towards San Siro.
Former Liverpool hero Mark Lawrenson has called Chelsea’s potential loan deal for Radamel Falcao, a “masterstroke”, the Daily Mirror report.
The pundit felt that Brendan Rodgers missed a trick by not going after the Colombian.
The deal that sees the former Manchester United man move to Stamford Bridge could see three of the Blues’ squad move to Monaco in exchange.
The Metro report that the Ligue 1 side want Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Nathan Ake, and Andreas Christensen on loan next year.
