Krzysztof Piatek

West London side Chelsea have learnt the £50 million price tag for in-demand Genoa striker Krzysztof Piatek ahead of the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

Chelsea are strong suitors for the star striker with manager Maurizio Sarri reported to be interested in Krzysztof Piatek to have him provide strong competition for under-firing strikers Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud.

Krzysztof Piatek is the highest goal scorer in the Italian Serie A league with 10 goals so far this season ahead of superstar and Juventus player Cristiano Ronaldo.

This does not stop the Italian outfit to wish for his departure from the club as they seek to cash in on him to be able to execute other transfer deals in the coming transfer window.

Genoa are reportedly aware of the fact that top European clubs have queued up for their star man and will be willing to release him to the club with the highest bid having learnt of interests from Spanish giants Barcelona and Napoli as well.

With Chelsea expected to sign at least a striker in the coming window, Krzysztof Piatek could just be the deal for them as they are strong title contenders this season having started on a good note.

Brazilian international David Luiz seems to be in a transfer mess after it is reported that negotiations between his representative and the club for a new deal stalled.

This means that the Brazilian international might be on his way out of the club which is against his wish as he hopes to spend longer time at the Stamford Bridge.

It is reported that David Luiz requested for an extension in his contract beyond a year which is against the doctrine of the West London side as he could only be handed a year deal because of his age.

The career of the Chelsea star came alive again this season with the coming of manager Maurizio Sarri and became one of the best in the club.

He has hinted that talks are still ongoing as he hopes to convince the club to hand him more than a year contract, stressing that he has big love for the player.

He noted that he is enjoying the game and life in general at London which makes it difficult for him to make a decision to leave the club.

It would be recalled that the 31-year-old had left the Stamford Bridge in 2014 to PSG with a record fee of £50 million only to return after two years.

According to reports, manager Maurizio Sarri is a big fan of the striker and will do all it takes within his power to convince the club management into having his signature come January.

Davide Zappacosta

London side West Ham are all out to secure more addition to their squad and they have turned their attention to West London side Chelsea for right full-back Davide Zappacosta.

Davide Zappacosta is believed to be frustrated at the Stamford Bridge as he has only had two Premier League appearances under his belt and they have all come as a substitute.

The Italian star is also wanted at the Italian side Lazio but there are suggestions he will seek to remain in England because of his love for the London city.

Davide Zappacosta had a perfect first season at the Stamford Bridge as he had enough playing time with the first team and was impressive as well but with the coming of new manager Maurizio Sarri, the situation has been different for him.

West Ham are tipped to win the race and have his signature and he will be of great advantage to the London club knowing his wealth of experience and quality as well.
