Latest Chelsea transfer rumours: Coutinho, Jesus Corona, £22.4m Tagliafico deal

The summer transfer window is set to see much less spent in terms of transfer fees, but some clubs are still preparing for the next campaign.
Chelsea are one of those clubs, as Frank Lampard looks to bolster his squad for his second season in charge at Stamford Bridge.
With a couple of key players like Willian and Pedro – who are both out of contract – set to leave the club once the season ends, Lampard may have to look elsewhere to replace the experienced duo.

Blues eye move for Burki

Chelsea are preparing a £15m move for Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki, according to the Sun.
Kepa Arrizabalaga has had a mixed season in goal for Lampard’s side and the Blues are reportedly set to replace the Spaniard.

Tagliafico could join Chelsea for £22.4m

Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico could sign for Chelsea for just £22.4m in the summer transfer window, report The Telegraph.
The report suggests Lampard is keen to bring a new left-back into his squad, and has eyed a move for Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell.
However, the Blues could be priced out of a move for the England defender and look at the Argentine Tagliafico instead.

Blues in battle for Coutinho

Chelsea are in a battle with Arsenal and Manchester United for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho, according to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo.
Coutinho has spent this season on loan at Bayern Munich, and despite impressing at the Allianz, the Brazil star has been deemed too expensive for the Bundesliga champions.
Barcelona are asking for €100m for the ex-Liverpool playmaker, and Chelsea are amongst the clubs keen on signing him.
However, Mundo Deportivo are reporting Coutinho believes Mikel Arteta’s style of play at Arsenal would suit him the best out of all the options.
Chelsea have held talks with Porto winger Jesus Corona over the possibility of signing him in the next transfer window, his agent has confirmed.
Blues head coach Frank Lampard will be on the hunt for a new right-winger once the next transfer window officially opens for business, with both Willian and Pedro set to leave Stamford Bridge when their current deals expire this summer.
It is no secret that the Blues have been actively keeping tabs on Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho in recent months, with Lampard desperately keen on adding the England international to his squad.
However, Dortmund are not expected to be willing to sell Sancho, who has enjoyed a fabulous campaign in the Bundesliga this season, for anything less than £100million, meaning that could prove to be a stretch too far for the Blues, especially when you take into account the financial impact the coronavirus pandemic will have brought about.
Therefore, it seems that the Blues are already looking at alternative options, with Mexican winger Corona being linked with a move to West London.
And his agent, Matias Bunge, has now confirmed that Chelsea have made contact and held discussions about the 27-year-old's availability
