TRANSFER NEWS LIVE: The latest rumours, updates and done deals…
Tuesday June 20
9:15: Chelsea striker Bertrand Traore is reportedly on the verge of joining Lyon.
The 21-year-old has spent the two of the last three years on loan in Holland, scoring a combined 31 goals for Vitesse in 2014/15 and Ajax last season.
But the Burkina Faso international is unlikely to be offered many first-team opportunities under Antonio Conte next term.
And according to the Daily Mail, Traore will complete a permanent move away from Stamford Bridge before the end of the week.
The former Auxerre striker is reportedly closing in on a return to France with Ligue 1 giants Lyon, who will pay £16million for his services.
9:00: Willy Caballero has agreed terms and passed a medical ahead of a move to Chelsea.
The Argentine left Manchester City this summer and is set to become Antonio Conte’s new No.2 goalkeeper.
Caballero will replace Asmir Begovic, who left for Bournemouth, to give back up to Thibaut Courtois.
Conte has been frustrated so far this summer and Caballero could be his first signing since winning the title.
Conte is keen to press ahead with plans for a new striker, midfielder, left-wing-back and centre-back.
But moves have stalled with Everton digging their heels over a fee for Romelu Lukaku.
However Monaco ace Tiemoue Bakayoko could become a Chelsea player over the next week.
But the Daily Mail report Caballero’s deal is close and could be done in the coming days.
8:40: Cristiano Ronaldo will not deter Manchester United from their focus of signing Jose Mourinho’s prime targets.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the saga surrounding Ronaldo’s uncertain future won’t deflect United away from their original plans.
The club are continuing with Mourinho’s list which was handed to Woodward before the end of the season.
And that is said to remain United’s priority before considering any potential move to target Ronaldo.
