Chelsea fans will no doubt already be aware of today’s major transfer rumours as it looks like Kai Havertz’s move to Stamford Bridge is very nearly done.

Various reports have given details on Havertz’s situation, with The Athletic claiming he’s closing in on a move to the Blues, which has been echoed by German outlet Kicker.

Next, Chelsea are being linked strongly again with Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

Kepa Arrizabalaga has had a poor season at Stamford Bridge and it’s little surprise to see Goal claiming Lampard is looking at a major upgrade in that position.

It may be tricky, however, for CFC to afford Oblak’s £110million release clause, even if the club do manage to find a buyer for Kepa, which is far from a given.

Finally, there’s also been a Ben Chilwell transfer update, with some explanation as to why that deal seems to have stalled.
