Blues boss Frank Lampard has identified Ben Chilwell as his top target but Leicester City want a fee in excess of £70million.

Stamford Bridge top brass are drawing up contingency plans in case Chilwell proves too costly.

Chelsea have approached Bayern to enquire about the availability of Alaba.

Liverpool offered Adama Traore transfer hope

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is unsure whether Liverpool target Adama Traore will be at Molineux next season.

“I don’t know,” he replied when asked if Traore would be his player next season.

“He is here now and he has trained well today and he is ready to go tomorrow.

“It is day by day, no speculation, and just focus on what we have to do and prepare for Bournemouth.”

Arsenal announce four deals

Arsenal have completed the permanent signings of Cedric Soares and Pablo Mari, extended David Luiz’s contract and struck an agreement with Real Madrid to keep loanee Dani Ceballos until the end of the campaign.

Gunners technical director Edu said: “I am really happy that we will have these players in our squad for the future. They have been part of the long-term technical plan Mikel and I have developed. They bring the right balance to our squad.

“David is a really important player for us. He has played most of our matches this season and has been important for the team. His passing, his communication with the team on and off the pitch. He helps everyone.

“With Pablo we’re all disappointed he got injured at Manchester City. Since Mikel arrived here he was asking for a central defender who was left-footed. We were really pleased with Pablo – his behaviour, the way he is training, his mentality and his quality. Unfortunately, he has that injury but of course we are really happy to keep him for the future.

“Cedric is also going to be an important player. He has been unlucky with the injuries but he is close to being ready and gives us more strength in the right-back position. We’re also pleased Dani will finish the season here. He is making a good contribution and we look forward to him having a strong finish to the season.”
