Jude Bellingham Declan Rice England

West Ham and Dortmund are already making their demands clear, while Chelsea are eyeing a couple of Inter defenders…


A fortnight after the summer window closed, it appears some clubs are getting their ducks in a row for January…

Borussia Dortmund are one of those clubs. The Germans are readying themselves for further interest in Jude Bellingham, with Liverpool and Manchester City both said to be keen on the England midfielder.

Bild are reporting that Dortmund would only be willing to part with Bellingham if they receive an offer worth €100million or more. That’s around £85million, which would make Bellingham the second-most expensive January transfer of all time.

West Ham are also making it clear that their best midfielder will only leave for top dollar…

Manchester United are said to retain their interest in Declan Rice but the Hammers’ valuation put the Red Devils off making a bid during the summer.

That figure won’t change. According to football.london, West Ham would ignore any offers under £100million.

The report speculates that neither United or Manchester City would be deterred by such a price tag, but Chelsea may have to sell, if only to make room in their squad. Yesterday, it was claimed that City had identified Kalvin Phillips as their preferred option to replace Fernandinho.

90min claims the Blues are ready to hand Mount a new contract that would see his salary doubled to £150,000 a week.

A formal offer is yet to be made but neither side are anticipating any issues.

Chelsea are also said to be in the market for a couple of defenders…

Thomas Tuchel would have liked another centre-back in the summer, but Jules Kounde proved to be unattainable.

So Mediaset is claiming that Tuchel is casting his eye towards Inter Milan, with Alessandro Bastoni and Milan Skriniar both on his radar.


Skrinar has been linked with Tottenham, but Spurs are reportedly setting their sights elsewhere in Milan…

Calciomercato says Daniel Levy ‘has put an offer on the table’ for AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.

The Ivorian is in the final year of his contract and reportedly turned down the Rossoneri’s final offer. But Tutto Mercato reckons the Serie A side remain confident that Kessie can be convinced to remain at the San Siro.
