According to reports in the Italian, Frank Lampard, the Chelsea head coach, has told the club’s hierarchy that he would like to add the talented 20-year-old to his squad during this month’s transfer window.
Huddersfield Town sign Boreham Wood winger
Huddersfield Town have signed winger Sorba Thomas from National League club Boreham Wood for an undisclosed fee on a three-and-a-half-year deal.
Thomas, 21, spent time in West Ham’s academy and played 77 times for Boreham Wood, scoring eight times.
He will initially join up with the club’s B team.
“Sorba has a lot of potential and many qualities that will fit the way we play,” Town head of football operations Leigh Bromby told the club website.
Lyon have completed the signing of striker Islam Slimani from Leicester on a permanent deal.
The Algeria international joined from Sporting Lisbon for £29m in August 2016 and made 29 appearances for them in his first season with the Foxes.
He subsequently fell out of favour, however, and has since had spells on loan at Newcastle, Fenerbahce and Monaco.
Slimani has made just one appearance for Brendan Rodgers’ side this season, coming off the bench in a 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa in October as he played his first match for Leicester since January 2018.
Chelsea handed Erling Haaland transfer boost
Chelsea’s current form has raised questions about the state of the squad, despite splashing out more than £220million on seven new additions last summer, leading to reports that the Blues may need to add a new big-name star to their ranks in an attempt to get the juices flowing once again.
But, in truth, the chances of Chelsea spending vast amounts of money this month are highly unlikely, despite them being linked with both Haaland and West Ham United midfield enforcer Declan Rice.

Arsenal tipped to sign Grealish
Arsenal have been told to sign Aston Villa star Jack Grealish.
That is the view of Piers Morgan and Harry Redknapp believe the Gunners should chase Grealish, even if the England international ends up costing £100 million.
“I think they have to spend,” Redknapp said to Morgan while speaking on the Harry Redknapp Show. “They are way off it, at the moment. They need to bring a bit of quality. Arsenal is a massive football club – Take a Grealish.

Inter Make Loan Enquiry To Manchester United For Donny Van de Beek, Italian Media Claim
Inter have made an enquiry to Manchester United regarding a possible loan deal for midfielder Donny Van de Beek, according to an Italian media report today.
The report claim that Inter’s sporting director Piero Ausilio has been in touch with the Premier League club in the past few days.
Van de Beek is not featuring regular for the current league leaders and could leave in order to ensure he does not lose his place in the Dutch national team ahead of this summer’s European Championships.
Inter are interested in taking the Dutchman on loan until the end of the season and are in talks with the players representatives, but United would not want to let the 23-year-old leave the club on a temporary basis.
