Friday Transfer News: Chelsea want €55m rated player, Conte’s first signing at Tottenham and more

Chelsea set sights on €55m-rated Barcelona target

The Blues could rival Barcelona in a transfer battle for Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman.

Coman is out of contract in 2023 and is considering letting his deal expire. If that’s the case, the Frenchman will become a free agent in under two years time. Thus, Bayern have a tricky decision to make. They could try to continue negotiating with the player or sell him before it’s too late.

Coman has already drawn from Xavi as the Catalan prepares to take charge of Barcelona, while Chelsea have begun to pay close attention to the situation. [BILD – in German]

Chalobah extends Chelsea contract

Trevoh Chalobah has signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract at Chelsea after breaking into the first team this season.

Coutinho to join Newcastle?

Philippe Coutinho could allegedly be one of the first names to head to Newcastle United in January.

The 29-year-old midfielder has struggled to make his mark at Barcelona. Xavi, who is on the verge of becoming the club’s new manager, apparently has no plans for him. Therefore, Coutinho could be on his way out of Camp Nou.

Newcastle, who are in another relegation tussle, could agree to a loan-to-buy deal for Coutinho once the winter transfer window opens. [Daily Mail]

Conte’s first Tottenham signing could come from the Championship

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Sam Johnstone could become Antonio Conte’s first transfer as Tottenham manager.

Spurs have reportedly joined Southampton and West Ham United as potential suitors for Johnstone. The 28-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season. West Brom intend to hold further talks over a new deal in January before making any final decision. [Sky Sports]
