Chelsea step up Aubameyang chase

Chelsea are also still battling for the signatures of Barcelona duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Frenkie de Jong.

Ex-Arsenal captain Aubameyang has been targeted for a shock return to the Premier League just six months after heading to Barcelona, who wouldn’t mind getting him off the wage bill as they continue to navigate tricky financial waters.

The Daily Mail say Chelsea held more talks with Barca over the weekend, while Mundo Deportivo claim that a £12m bid was rebuffed by the LaLiga giants.

Per Gerard Romero, a £23m fee will be required for the deal to get done, with Thomas Tuchel keen on a reunion with a player with whom he shares a close bond following their time spent together at Borussia Dortmund.

The cash-strapped Toffees could be content to sell Gordon as they try to raise funds for further incomings this month, with his valuation set at around £45m

Tottenham also tried to sign the England Under-21 international earlier in the window as part of a double raid involving Richarlison.

Arsenal to battle Man United for Caicedo

A new midfielder is also still a priority for Arsenal it would appear, amid their long-standing pursuit of Leicester’s Youri Tielemans.

A newer name on Mikel Arteta’s transfer radar is that of Moises Caicedo.

The Ecuador midfielder has shone of late for Brighton, winning his place in Graham Potter’s side after a loan spell at Belgian outfit Beerschot.

Caicedo has gone from strength to strength, enjoying a starring role in the 2-1 win at Manchester United – who previously scouted him extensively – on the opening weekend in the Premier League.

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal, United, West Ham, Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen are all tracking the 20-year-old, for whom Brighton paid just £4.5m to sign from Ecuadorian side Independiente del Valle last January.
