Latest on Tammy Abraham, Dembele, Bony and Choupo-Moting
Could Tammy Abraham be Off to Villa?
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham could be set for loan spell at Championship side Aston Villa. The 20-year-old is highly-rated at Stamford Bridge but has not figured this season. Abraham has spent the last two seasons away on loan but needs game time.
Villa are hoping to agree a deal before today’s deadline. Steve Bruce is hoping to strengthen his attack and Abraham will be seen as a coup for the club. His form at the beginning of last season on loan at Swansea earned him an England call-up.
Can Celtic Hold on to Dembele?
Celtic remain hopeful of keeping star striker Moussa Dembele at the club; however, it appears the 22-year-old wishes to leave. French club Lyon reportedly offered Celtic £18 million but this was rejected.
Dembele has advised the club that he wants to move to Lyon and has suggested that if an offer was made then Celtic would not stand in his way. The former Fulham striker was left out of the Celtic squad last night which qualified for the Europa League.
Bony to Leave Swansea for Turkey?
Former Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony is attracting interest from Turkish giants Galatasaray. Swansea are reportedly keen to move on Bony in order to reduce their wage bill. Besiktas and Fenerbahce are also thought to be keen in the 29-year-old.
A fee of around £2 million will be enough to secure his services. However, any deal may be dependent on Swansea bringing in players. Swansea boss Graham Potter is interested in Real Madrid youngster Dani Gomez.
PSG Chase Stoke Striker
PSG are reportedly looking to sign Stoke City forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. The Cameroon ace is valued at £15 million and is free to leave Stoke. PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed that Choupo-Moting is due to have a medical on deadline day.
The French champions are hoping to seal the deals of both Choupo-Moting and Bayern Munich’s Juan Bernat before today’s deadline.
