Barcelona and Liverpool have been in contact and may be able to reach an agreement to make the swap.

How about the Blues?

Rafa Leão will be hard to get

This morning, La Gazzetta Dello Sport highlights Rafael Leão. Paolo Maldini, the Rossoneri's technical director, and the former legendary defender made a shocking statement to dissuade all European clubs from recruiting his Portuguese talent. The Italian explained that he was doing everything possible to prolong his stay. "Rafa knows that his growth process is in Milan. I think there is a good possibility of reaching an agreement. And this season we are even stronger," he said. Chelsea, who was interested in buying him, might have to pay a very expensive transfer fee.

Leandro Trossard to join the Blues?

Brighton's Belgian international winger Leandro Trossard, whose contract runs until 2023 with the Seagulls, has said he would not be against joining the Blues.

"Our manager has left for Chelsea now, but the speculation about me following him makes no sense. If the opportunity arises, I want to go. But I want to play and not sit on the bench," he said in a statement carried by The Daily Mail.
