Chelsea have spent the most money amongst European clubs during this year’s summer transfer window and it looks like their transfer splurge has not ended according to the Daily Express.

The Blues have spent almost £250m on transfers this summer and the report via the aforementioned British media outlet stated that the West London giants have agreed on personal terms with Declan Rice paving the way for the club to sign him if they can agree on a transfer fee with the Hammers.

Declan Rice spent the majority of his youth career at Chelsea before he was released at the age of 14.

West Ham United signed him almost immediately and the England international went on to represent the first team and he has not looked back since then.

Declan Rice is an important member of the West Ham United squad and he has a valuation of £80m on his head.

Chelsea will take their transfer splurge over the £300m mark this summer if they are able to re-sign the midfielder with the Hammers reluctant to lower their asking price.

The Hammers hierarchy came in for some rough treatment from the fans earlier this month following the sale of young winger Grady Diangana and the sale of Declan Rice would even cause more problems at the club.

Every Chelsea fan wants to see N’Golo Kante in the Blues shirt because of the impact he has made on the team but that might not continue for a longer period.

The former Leicester City midfielder is already being linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge as he cannot boast of the same performance when he first joined the club.

European giants like Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Paris Saint Germain are desperate to land the service of the World Cup winner and could be their opportunity should Frank Lampard decide to let him leave.

N’Golo Kante can no longer boast of a future at the club after learning that the club is keen on the signature of West Ham United midfielder, Declan Rice. That could cost him his playing time.

However, three names have been listed as a possible replacement for the France international.

Wilfried Ndidi
The Nigerian international has been solid for Leicester City for the past seasons. He has been attracting interest from Stamford Bridge with his stunning record of tackles and defensive powees at the midfield. Should The West London outfit decide against N’Golo Kante, the Nigerian international could be called upon but the Blues must be ready to pay big as he is also being linked to Paris Saint Germain.

Denis Zakaria
Frank Lampard is known to have great belief in younger talents and that is what makes Denis Zakaria a perfect replacement for N’Golo Kante. The Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder will be able to manage Chelsea’s midfield properly as he can move forward with the ball. He will be less expensive and will jump at any opportunity to join a big side like Chelsea.

Declan Rice
The West Ham United midfielder is one of the reason why N’Golo Kante is being rumoured to leave the club as he is top target for Frank Lampard. He has been in the EPL and well experienced.

EPL: Klopp has major challenges aside from injuries

There is more to the challenges facing Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp with the latest complaints made by the German boss over the fixture schedule.

The Premier League title holders are currently battling with injuries as some of the important players in the squad are on the sideline which places the club’s bid to defend the title on the line.

Dutch defender Virgil Van Dijk has been ruled out of the season after sustaining an injury in the Merseyside derby against Everton while Fabinho will be out of action for few weeks. Jurgen Klopp currently lacks options at the defence for the next few fixtures.

However, the former Borussia Dortmund boss expresses dissatisfaction over the tiresome fixtures list handed to top Premier League clubs that are currently participating in the Champions League. They include Liverpool, Man City, Man United, and Chelsea.

In one of his post-game interviews, Jurgen Klopp blasted the Premier League board for not being considerate in their scheduling of matches for his team and others playing in the Champions League.
“I think everybody will agree that if you play Tuesday night, you can play the Saturday 12:30 pm game, but somehow the Premier League never realised that.

“They always put in the Wednesday night game, like last Saturday, Man City had to play this, game – I can’t believe it. We are obviously not friends, we play against each other and fight against each other, but how is that possible?”

He lamented that the Premier League bosses are not bothered about how teams cope with these fixtures, expressing fears that it will affect the efficiency of the team and may cause fatigue for the players.

Liverpool will play West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday after the Champions League clash against their Danish opponent on Tuesday and will make a trip to Italy to face Atlanta in Group D, just four days later.

English Premier League outfit Bayern Munich have been tipped to win the race for defender David Alaba from German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich in the January transfer window.

The focus for the Reds team in the January window will be a defender as they lack options for one. Virgil Van Dijk and Fabinho are currently injured which makes it necessary for the team to bring in a cover.

There is a green light from the Bayern Munich star over a move as he is believed to be prepared to leave Germany after spending his entire career with the Bundesliga giants. He has proven to be a top defender that can fit into the level expected in Liverpool.

The Austria defender is not keen to sign a new deal with the Bundesliga giants as he enters his last six months of his contract at the beginning of 2021 which means he would have to leave for the club to be able to cash in from his sale.

He will be free to sign a pre-contract with any club from January as well, and the Reds team are considering the option of bringing him to serve as a cover. He also has the quality and experience to partner Virgil Van Dijk when he returns next season.

Football insider reports that Bayern Munich are not willing to take the chance and will let go of David Alaba in the Jaunty winter window to any of his suitors.

English Premier Legate duo Man United and Chelsea have also shown interest in the signature of David Alaba as they are also in need of a defender while Italian Serie A outfit Juventus is willing to give them a fight.

Meanwhile, manager Jurgen Klopp will have to make do with Rhys Williams as a cover for his defence in subsequent games before the return of Fabinho or the signing of David Alaba should manager Jurgen Klopp insist.
