Russian midfielder Aleksand Golovin could soon become a new Chelsea player.

As told by the player’s mother Svetlana and reported by Metro the Blues and Cska Moscow are in talks and the £27m deal could be completed soon after the end of 2018 World Cup for Russia who are now ready to face Croatia in the quarter-finals.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata was pictured in Milan with his agent Juanma Lopez today.

The Blues forward, coming from a patchy first season at Stamford Brigde, was in Italy to meet Juventus sport director Fabio Paratici, with whom he had lunch on Wednesday.

Morata, whose pregnant wife is Italian, would love to return to Serie A, as he probably lived the best two campaigns of his career while at Juventus between 2014 and 2016.

The Spanish striker, who was let down by his exclusion from the Spain squad who will travel to Russia for World Cup 2018, moved to London from Real Madrid in a £ 70m deal last summer and Juventus would be keen to sign him back for a similar fee.

The talks have just started.

HERE: Morata with Paratici and his agent Juama Lopez in Milan today.

Speaking with German magazine KickerHuddersfield Town‘s manager David Wagner says he is aware he is on the list to become the next Chelsea manager, but he admits his priority are the Terriers and to stay in the Premier League with them.

Of course I hear that. But I want to get there (Premier League safety) first, talk to owner Dean Hoyle, and then maybe look at what options are still there,  Wagner said. “maybe I do not have to think about that, but it will always be like this: The first and last conversation I have with our owner, I owe it to the club too much and have been able to experience so many beautiful things with him.“

Speaking to Calciomercato.com Emerson Palmieri‘s agent Fernando Garcia confirms Chelsea and As Roma are trying to reach a deal for the player’s move to Stamford Bridge in this January transfer window.

“There is still nothing certain, we are in the period of discussions and evaluations”. Garcia said. “Of course yes [Chelsea are interested], absolutely.
Now the two clubs are talking, we’ll see if they are successful.”

A major factor could also be the fact that Emerson Palmieri would love to play under Chelsea’s manager Antonio Conte:  “Obviously yes, it would be a dream”. Garcia confirmed. “Conte is a top coach, one of the best and most successful coaches in the world.”

Marcos Alonso, N’Golo Kante and Cesar Azpilicueta are an important trio for Chelsea on the pitch.

Before and after every game and when the team train at Cobham the three sit close to each other in the dressing room and now the same Marcos Alonso reveals what they speak about on these occasions.

Between them they speak about FIFA because they like to play it a lot, but not me so with Azpi I speak about Spanish teams and football mostly, and he also asks me about my girlfriend because I have a new girlfriend and he is curious,” – Alonso said. – “And with N’Golo, he is trying to speak Spanish and I am trying to speak French so we are both teachers of each other. They are both very tidy. N’Golo is a very nice guy and it is always good to have him around and Azpi, he is one of the captains so it is good to be near him.  He is always asking things and is involved with the team, and it is good to have them both close. I would make N’Golo speak a little bit more because he is so quiet, and Azpi, maybe he should speak less about FIFA”.

Enrique Cerezo, Atletico Madrid president claims there aren’t ongoing talks with Diego Costa for a possible return of the Spanish striker to the Simeone’s side.

“Costa is a Chelsea player at the moment, and you know for a long time now that we cannot sign anyone,” – Cerezo told AS. – “This shows that pyjamas come in all different colours. Everyone can put on whichever ones they want. Diego is a magnificent player, a great player, he was in Spain for many years. He has had a good spell in England, learned English, English customs”.

However, Enrique Cerezo believes that one day Diego Costa can come back to the Spanish capital: “He will return to Spain someday… On holiday.” – Cerezo continues – “Madrid is a lovely place to visit, if you have the money to enjoy it. It is a long time since I spoke with him. At least a year, since he left here. I have seen him with the [Spanish] national team, but spoken to him very little.”

According to Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur Antonio Conte has spoken regularly with Romelu Lukaku to convince him to sign for Chelsea.

Terreur wrote on Twitter: “Antonio Conte has been in regular contact with Lukaku in the last few weeks. He wants a deal over the line too. Over to Marina G.” [the director of the club Marina Granovskaia].

Will this be enough to convince the Belgian striker to sign for the London club or is the deal with Manchester United already (and really) done?
