Willian

Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona have revived their interest in Chelsea winger Willian and are ready to offer one of their players in a bid to finally sign the Brazilian international star.

According to the Daily Mail, five-time European champions want to offer a player-plus-cash deal worth £50m.

It was revealed that the Catalans are willing to offer compatriot Malcom in their quest to sign Willian.

Barcelona tried to sign the 30-year-old Chelsea player three times last summer only for them to be repelled by the Premier League giants on each occasion.

Brazilian winger Malcom could leave Barcelona just six months after he signed for the Spanish La Liga club from French side Bordeaux at the start of the season.
The young winger was signed in controversial fashion after Barcelona hijacked his transfer from the Italian capital club AS Roma.

Serie A outfit Roma had agreed on a deal with Bordeaux for his transfer before Barcelona swoop in to sign him at the expense of their fellow Champions League campaigners.

Since his move to Barcelona, Malcom has failed to settle down at the club.

The 21-year-old has rarely featured for the Catalan giants this season with the likes of Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho ahead of him in the pecking order at the Nou Camp.

Giroud

Chelsea strikers, Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have reportedly made the five-man strikers’ shortlist for Spanish La Liga giant Barcelona.

The La Liga giants are eyeing a striker signing to replace Munir El-Haddadi who has joined fellow Spanish side, Sevilla.

Munir signed for Europa League campaigners Sevilla last week in a deal worth just £1.5m.

According to the Daily Mail, they claim that the Catalans have already drawn up a five-man shortlist to replace Munir.

The aforementioned Chelsea duo of Morata and Giroud made the list alongside West Ham United star Lucas Perez, Girona striker Christian Stuani and Tottenham Hotspur Fernando Llorente.

Barcelona are said to be targeting a loan move for the striker and that could rule out Morata.

Chelsea want a permanent transfer for the Spaniard who’s holding out for a move to Atletico Madrid following the imminent arrival of Gonzalo Higuain from Italy.

Tottenham Hotspur won’t be open to the idea of selling Llorente again following the injury to Harry Kane.

England national team skipper Kane will miss the next six weeks at least after he suffered a serious ankle injury in the Premier League clash with Manchester United on Sunday evening.
Harry Kane sustained the injury in the final moments of the game which ended in a 1-0 win for Manchester United.

Umtiti was heavily linked with a switch to Old Trafford in the summer but a desperate Mourinho — who was eventually sacked by the club last month — couldn’t convince his employer to get the Frenchman.

Considering the huge demands for the player’s services, it is understood that Barcelona have placed a mammoth price tag on the player’s signature.

Of all the reported suitors, Emery and Solskjaer’s team should be more eager to capture his signature due to their current unimpressive record at the back of the pitch.

The Gunners have conceded 31 goals in 21 League games while United have allowed 32 goals after playing the same number of games as the North London club.

Liverpool, City and Chelsea are defensively doing fine at the moment and i see no reason why they are interested in Umtiti midway into the season.
