Chelsea ready Timo Werner bid
Lampard is said looking for strikers to bolster his forward line and take some of the pressure off Tammy Abraham in January.
The Chelsea attacker has already proven he to be a capable goalscorer and hold up play, and the Blues could do with a different sort of threat in the final third – especially with Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud heading for the exit.
According to the Express, Timo Werner could be exactly what they’re looking for, with the Stamford Bridge hierarchy set to put in a bid for the fleet-footed German.
The RB Leipzig striker is apparently available to buy for a bargain fee due of £27million due to a release clause inserted into the Germany international’s contract.
Manchester United’s £200k Erling Haaland offer
Another forward linked with Chelsea, Erling Braut Haaland is supposedly set to sign for Manchester United.
The Norwegian will be offered a whopping £200k-a-week deal according to the Sun.
Red Bull Salzburg’s prolific 19-year-old would see his wages increase significantly if he were to accept the terms set out by the top brass at Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be happy to agree to a loan deal to send Haaland straight back to Austria with the business done to wait for the teenager to become a part of his squad next season.
United won’t have it all their own way. The demand for the forward is high. Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, and Juventus all want a piece of Haaland in addition to the links to Chelsea.
Manchester United prepare £80m James Maddison bid
Sticking with Manchester United, the Daily Star states that Solskjaer has also made Leicester City midfielder James Maddison their top transfer priority for 2020.
The 23-year-old has excelled in the past 18 months with the Foxes, forcing his way into Gareth Southgate’s England squad and becoming one of the finest creative midfielders in the Premier League.
He has also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur.
United are said to be big fans of the former Norwich City ace and are desperate to secure a deal, as they are planning a whopping £80million bid next summer.
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba could be set to force his way out of Old Trafford in order to seal a return to Juventus, according to Tuttosport.
The France World Cup winner is another player who has attracted interest across Europe. His departure could open the door for Maddison to move to Manchester.
Arsenal eye Moussa Dembele
Arsenal is anticipating losing one of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette in the coming months and has targeted Lyon’s Moussa Dembele as a replacement.
That’s according to Le 10 Sport, who states that Arsenal has made Dembele their ‘priority’ heading into 2020 as Mikel Arteta looks to rejuvenate the squad he inherited at the Emirates Stadium.
The 23-year-old former Celtic forward has struck 10 goals in 18 Ligue 1 matches this term.
