Latest on Soccer Transfer News

As the transfer window draws nearer to its closing date, a number of clubs are pushing to sign potential players. The transfer window is closing on Thursday.

Rumors at Chelsea

The Blues are attempting to bring Arsenal’s midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Drinkwater of Leicester this summer. Chelsea is willing to spend more than £70 million for the two premier league stars just to bring them to Stamford Bridge. Amid Chelsea’s interests, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain refused to sign a new contract with his current club hinting out that he wants to move away from the Emirates. With less than a year on his contract, Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is trying to convince him to stay at the club for few years. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain next contract is likely to have a salary raise up to £150, 000 per week. According to Australia online pokies, the star’s market value is between £35 – 40 million and Chelsea has already agreed a fee with Arsenal and the deal is most likely to happen.

Meanwhile, talks with Leicester City are intensifying ahead of the transfer window deadline. Leicester is demanding not less than £40 million for the English midfielder Danny Drinkwater. The asking price for Drinkwater is way above what Chelsea is willing to pay.

Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele Done Deal

Reports from Spain say that the Catalans have completed the deal of £135 million to bring Borussia Dortmund’s star Ousmane Dembele to Nou Camp. The deal is now the second most expensive transfer deal of all times. Barcelona’s new boy is the replacement for Neymar Jr who left for Paris St-Germain for a record fee of £198 million two weeks ago. The Catalans will pay an initial fee amounting to £98 million that will rise to £135 million with add-ons. Dembele signed a five-year contract with Barcelona on Monday afternoon. He is now the most expensive player for the Catalan club when it broke its own previous 2014 Suarez record fee of €80 million. Too bad real money online casino jackpots do not rise in the same way that football players rise in value.
