Chelsea and Liverpool scrap for £70m Pulisic
One of Chelsea or Liverpool
are free to sign Borussia Dortmund
sensation Christian Pulisic according to reports that claim he WILL be available for £70million in the summer.
Both Premier League clubs have been tracking his progress as his contract expires in 2020 and he is yet to sign a new deal with the Bundesliga leaders.
And The Telegraph
now claim a deal can be struck if either are willing to meet their asking price.
Pulisic has previously said he is keen to play in the Premier League and he will have no shortage of suitors if he does to decide to leave Germany.
Paris Saint-Germain
are also reported to be interested in the player.
Real Madrid set to bid for Hazard in January
Chelsea might see Pulisic as the natural successor to Eden Hazard who has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid.
And the Spanish press believe Real will make a stunning move to sign him when the transfer window opens on January 1.
OK Diario
claim they are ready to hit the panic button by spending big to bring him in before next summer.
Los Blancos would almost certainly have to pay a premium to bring him in midway through the season.
But Real have endured a difficult start to the season and are desperate for reinforcements having failed to replace Cristiano Ronaldo after his £100m move to Juventus in the summer.
Italian scouting mission
Blues boss Maurizio Sarri sent scouts to watch Italy's 18-year-old midfielder Sandro Tonali, according to reports in the country
.
Tonali currently plays for Serie B outfit Brescia but is interesting clubs in Europe's top divisions.
It is claimed he will cost around £22m but Chelsea
might have to fight off competition from Inter Milan
and Arsenal
who are also understood to be interested.
Tonali has played all 12 of Brescia's league games this season and scored one goal.
He was recently called up to the Italian national team by Roberto Mancini for the first time but is yet to win his first cap.
