  • Alphonse Areola has asked agent Mino Raiola to find him a new club – preferably in London

Wanted: Max Bird

Derby County have named their price for midfielder Max Bird.

Chelsea have been tipped to sign the 19-year-old, who was given his Championship debut by Frank Lampard during their time together at Pride Park.

Bird, a defensive midfielder, has established himself as a regular in Phillip Cocu’s side and the Blues have been monitoring his progress carefully.

Now, Football Insider claim Chelsea have been quoted £5million for his signature.

Philippe Coutinho U-turn

Liverpool have been urged to change their minds on signing Philippe Coutinho this summer and fork out to bring their old forward back to Anfield, according to Phil Thompson.

Coutinho is expected to leave Barcelona this summer, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham leading the way to sign the Brazilian.

“They are probably looking at that creative midfield player,” he said. “Would you take Coutinho back? I would, in a heartbeat. I think he’s a creative genius.

“You look back at his Liverpool career and he was absolutely terrific. He’s not too old and I still think he could come back. It probably won’t happen but it’s that creative player just off the front three that would probably just tip the balance.”

Andre Onana move

Chelsea are tracking Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana.

But Frank Lampard’s Premier League side face a host of rivals for his signature including Tottenham, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.

With uncertainty surrounding the future of £72million club-recored signing Kepa Arrizabalaga, Chelsea have been tipped to sign a replacement in the upcoming transfer window.

The Mirror claim Onana, 24, is viewed as the ‘perfect replacement’ and the Cameroon international could be signed for a relatively modest £25million.

Possible starting XI

Chelsea are looking to do some serious business this summer in the transfer window with Jadon Sancho and Timo Werner both on the club’s radar.

There will need to be incomings at Stamford Bridge with the likes of Willian, Pedro and Olivier Giroud likely to leave this summer.

Other names linked with a move to the club include Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell and Inter Milan ace Lautaro Martinez.

Possible line-up after Jadon Sancho and Timo Werner transfers: Chelsea XI: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Zouma, Christensen, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Ziyech, Sancho, Pulisic, Werner.

Manuel Neuer transfer

Chelsea transfer target Manuel Neuer will turn down the chance to join the Blues this summer and stay at Bayern Munich, according to insider Jan Age Fjortoft.

Chelsea are said to be looking at Neuer as a potential replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has been tipped to leave this summer.

The 34-year-old is out of contract next summer, and has been tipped to leave in the upcoming summer transfer window.

He is still locked in negotiations with the German champions over a potential extension, but is still yet to sign on the dotted line.

However, former Frankfurt player Fjortoft believes Neuer will end up signing an extension and snubbing a potential move to Stamford Bridge.

“Do I think he will sign? Yes, I think he will sign,” he said on ESPN FC. “Now, it’s all about the timing of it. The main thing is, Manuel Neuer is desperate to stay at Bayern. He loves it there, it’s a great club, they’re his club, they’re German, he’s German.”
