English Premier League outfit Chelsea are reportedly ready to land former Real Madrid chief and Lille sporting director Luis Campos as they plan to restructure the management.

The Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has left the running of the Stanford Bridge to his long-time confidant and Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia but there is a need to replace Nigerian international Michael Emenalo who left the club in 2016.

Luis Campos could be set to take over the role of recruitment of players as the position has been vacant since the departure of the Nigerian.

Michael Emelano left the West London outfit to join French Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco but he has not been successful at the club as he was at Chelsea.

However, Luis Campos has been tipped to make good success at the Stamford Bridge, having done a good job by securing the signature if James Rodriquez, Bernardo Solva, Djibril Sidibe to the French Ligue 1 outfit.

Man United had earlier made an attempt to snap up the star Lille chief but it did not work out with Luis Campos stating had he never received any concrete offer form the EPL side.

Meanwhile, it is unsure if Chelsea will be able to sign new players as the transfer ban is yet to be appealed.

Jack Grealish

Both Man United and Chelsea might face a very big summer transfer disappointment as they are set to fail in their bid to acquire the signature of Aston Villa star Jack Grealish.

Jack Grealish has been on the radar of both clubs even before the end of the season after helping his team to avoid relegation in their last game of the campaign.

He was tipped to leave Aston Villa for a new challenge with Man United leading in the race. It was claimed that after Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, Jack Grealish is next on the list.

Chelsea have also been keeping a tab on the player and were preparing a bid already for the summer transfer window.

However, Jack Grealish is set to stay with Aston Villa for more years with the Sun reporting that he would be handed a new bumper deal that will convince him of a stay.

The report claims that the deal will now have Jack Grealish earn £100 per week which is a very significant increase in his current deal with the club.

This development means that Man United and Chelsea will be left disappointed and will have to seek more options for a new midfielder to bolster their squad ahead of the coming season.

Willian

North London outfit Arsenal have been favoured by the statement reportedly credited to Brazilian international and Chelsea winger, Willian on his wish for the future.

The West London outfit have been struggling to hand a new deal to the Brazilian but the terms have been the major challenge as the club have an existing policy for players who are above 30.

A number of clubs are already lined up for his services with Arsenal also indicating interests, alongside David Beckham’s Inter Miami with a bumper offer.

Bur from emerging reports, Willian has already told his friends of his desire to stay in London and play under manager Mikel Arteta with Arsenal already willing to hand him the three-year-deal he is requesting.

Mikel Arteta sees investment in Willian on a free deal as a wise one as he could add to the attacking strength of the club as well as help younger players with his experience.

Chelsea are only willing to give the 31-year-old a two-year deal and that has been rejected which means he would be a free player in few weeks.

Meanwhile, manager Frank Lampard is making frantic efforts to convince the club hierarchy for a three-year-deal for the Brazilian winger and that has been difficult to achieve.

Dean Henderson

Man United’s hope of keeping Dean Henderson at the club for more years continues to dim as he is keen on playing the role of a first-choice goalkeeper in the coming season.

If the Red Devils will not promise him that singular condition, he would not be signing a new deal at the club and will seek to leave this summer transfer window.

Dean Henderson has gotten his confidence back and will not lack suitors especially after his impressive display with Sheffield in the just-concluded season on the loan spell.

He is now ready to make a decision over his future and will hold showdown talks with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to know what the situation will be in the coming season to be able to make an informed decision on his future.

There have been suggestions that Man United are in search of a new goalkeeper with David De Gea giving a shaky performance, especially after the restart of the season.

However, Dean Henderson will no longer be a second goalkeeper to David De Gea or any other goalkeeper and will seek to leave.

West London outfit, Chelsea are very keen on the signature of Dean Henderson as they also seek to part ways with Kepa Arrizabalaga.

NGolo Kante

One player that is a surprise on the exit list of West London outfit, Chelsea is N’Golo Kante with reports claiming that he could be leaving the club at the end of the season.

N’Golo Kante joined the Blues team after helping Leicester City win the English Premier League to become a star and important player at the Stamford Bridge.

The story began to change for the French player when former manager Maurizio Sarri joined Chelsea and brought in Jorginho to take the role previously handled by N’Golo Kante.

It is yet, an unchanged story for the former Leicester City star as he has been battling for playing time under manager Frank Lampard. He is now tipped to leave the club this summer window.

However, Arsenal have been urged to move in for the World Cup winner as manager Mikel Arteta battles to add depth to his midfield. The Gunners are in the race for Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey but are yet to strike a deal.

There is no doubt that the Blues player will be a great addition to the North London outfit and his settling at the club will be easier than a player who has not been in London before. The only challenge might be in his weekly wage.

Matthias Ginter

Both London clubs, Arsenal and Chelsea have indicated an interest in the signature of Matthias Ginter, from the German Bundesliga club, Borussia Monchengladbach.

The West London outfit was reported to be favourites ahead of the Gunners in the deal as they were ready to meet with the asking price but that the player is already rejecting any move away from Germany.

Matthias Ginter has, therefore, made his commitment to the Bundesliga outfit very public, insisting that eh would not be leaving the club any time soon.

He told Kicker that he is aware of all the interests and speculations and is being flattered but that will not be enough to take him out of the club because Borussia Monchengladbach is enough for him.

Meanwhile, the Blues and the North London outfit are keen on defenders for the coming season as they hope to compete favourably in their various European competitions, the reason why Matthias Ginter is being considered.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is believed to have named the players that would be leaving the club this transfer window as he hopes to rebuild the team to get stronger in the coming season.

The defence is a major priority for the Spanish manager as well as the midfield department.

Frank Lampard

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is still hoping that Brazilian international Willian will remain at the club for more seasons by signing a new deal this summer window.

The contract of the 31-year-old is set to come to an end as he has been unable to negotiate new terms with the club. His wish of a three-year-deal might not be granted and that makes him close to the exit door.

Frank Lampard expressed his love for the player, insisting that he wants him to remain at the club but whatever decision is made at the end of the day will be good for both parties.

He admitted knowing nothing about the negotiation between Willian and the club but is sure the right decision would be made in the interest of the two parties.

However, Chelsea have already secured the signature of two forwards, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech from RB Leipzig and Ajax respectively which means there would be a level of cover for him when he leaves.

North London outfit, Arsenal are already on standby to snap up the signature of the Brazilian international with manager Mikel Arteta very keen to add his experience to his squad ahead of the coming season.

Should Chelsea listen to the words of former Tottenham and Man United striker Dimitar Berbatov, they will be moving to the Spanish La Liga club, Atletico Madrid for the signature of Jan Oblak this summer transfer window.

The West London outfit are no longer comfortable with the performance of Kepa Arrizabalaga with Frank Lampard considering another option for next season’s challenge.

The Blues have already secured the signatures of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech and are now focused on landing Bayern Leverkusen star Kai Havertz as their next target.

Dimitar Berbatov has therefore stated that the Blues team should ensure the Atletico Madrid shot-stopper is made the next target to have a complete team for next season’s campaign.

According to him, the Frank Lampard team will surely struggle without a better goalkeeping option, stressing that they will have a great one in Jan Oblak.

Meanwhile, Man United have since indicated an interest in the signature of the Atletico Madrid player as they are also unsatisfied with the performance of Spanish goalkeeper, David De Gea.

However, the La Liga club values the Jan Oblak very high and are not interested in losing him despite making his £130 million price tag known to the suitors.

The West London club will, therefore, be turning their attention to Dean Henderson who is having a good loan spell with Sheffield United. The best and quality of the goalkeeper was known after the restart of the Premier League and that has drawn attention from Chelsea.

However, to ensure his future is guaranteed with a first-team role, Dean Henderson seeks to sit with his real owners, Man United to have their words of a role over out-of-form David De Gea.

Should Man United fail to assure him, he will not be signing a new deal with the club and will force his move to the Stamford Bridge.
