Friday Transfer News: Updates On Haaland, Grealish, Brandt, Rice And More

Chelsea and Man Utd handed big Erling Haaland transfer boost by Mino Raiola

Chelsea and Manchester United have been boosted in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland by his agent Mino Raiola who claims there has been no contact with Barcelona presidential candidate Emili Rousaud. Should he win the race, the Catalan club would reportedly like to make a move for Haaland.

Speaking to Sport1, Raiola said: “Fake news. I’ve never talked to any presidential candidate of Barcelona regarding Haaland and I won’t do.

"If there will be a new president elected in January, he can call me.”

Reports in Italy have claimed Chelsea boss Frank Lampard wants to strike an agreement with Haaland this January.

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is known to be an admirer of his countryman as he looks to strengthen in the transfer window.

Jack Grealish ‘now worth £100m-plus’ as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer coy on Manchester United interest

Manchester United are reportedly still interested in signing Jack Grealish, whose value is said to have risen to £100million after his brilliant start to the season.

Grealish is set to lead out Villa against United at Old Trafford on Friday night, but he could well have been playing in a Red Devils shirt had the Premier League giants pushed ahead in the summer.

The Daily Mail claim United remain keen on bringing Grealish to Old Trafford, although his value has risen following his brilliant season so far for Villa – with his performances helping them to fifth in the Premier League table.

Report: Arsenal want Borussia Dortmund star

The Daily Mail have claimed that Arsenal have made an enquiry to sign Borussia Dortmund attacker Julian Brandt this month, with the January transfer window now fully open for business.

Given he has a contract until 2024, a deal to take him away in January might prove expensive but Arsenal have asked the question anyway as Mikel Arteta looks to inject some creativity into his side.

Arsenal could help him regain his form temporarily, and that would boost Dortmund. However, given the size of Arsenal, they would surely include a permanent clause in the contract if indeed they pursued a loan-to-buy.

Granosvkaia willing to back Lampard in January to sign this £80m English star

Declan Rice is a target for Chelsea and the Blues will make a move for him in January.

Chelsea chief Marina Granosvkaia is to back Frank Lampard and push to sign Declan Rice in the winter window, according to Ian McGarry (h/t Express).

However, the Englishman won’t come on the cheap. Football.london have suggested that West Ham want close to £80million for Rice.

Chelsea already spent big at the start of this season on the likes of Kai Havertz and Timo Werner. They two are yet to show what they are capable of doing on the pitch, but they need more time to settle in.
