In Chelsea transfer news, who are said to be heavy favourites to land the Brighton midfielder Moisés Caicedo. Now Amadou Onana and Osimhen.

The Ecuadorian, strongly linked to Arsenal back in January, will cost around £80m and is said to have his heart set on a move to Stamford Bridge and an alliance with their new manager, Mauricio Pochettino.

In another earth-shattering transfer development in Chelsea transfer news, and sticking with those illustrious Premier League London clubs, it's being reported that Kai Havertz has given the nod to a switch from the over-staffed Chelsea dressing room to Arsenal.

The only potential sticking point is that the Blues haven't agreed to the deal, so the Gunners would need to produce the sufficient readies to convince Todd Boehly and co to sell.

Todd's boys are also known to be in the market for a new goalie and André Onana, who was on the losing side for Internazionale in last weekend's Champions League final, is their top target to replace Édouard Mendy. Manchester United are also keen on Onana as a long-term replacement for shot-stopper extraordinaire David de Gea so a bidding war between the Premier League rivals may even ensue.

Why sign one Onana when you can sign two? The Everton midfielder Amadou Onana is also on Chelsea's radar after a strong first season at Goodison Park. The 21-year-old Belgium international would seem a natural long-term replacement for N'Golo Kanté, who is off to Saudi Arabia.

It is not the first Onana that Chelsea have been connected with in the transfer window, with the Blues also scouting the possibility of signing goalkeeper Andre Onana from Inter Milan.

The 27-year-old Cameroonian goalkeeper, who served a nine-month drug ban in 2021, has become one of Europe's most desired shot-stoppers following his Champions League performances this season, as Inter reached the final.

The Blues are seeking to improve on their 12th-placed finish in this Premier League season, as they were helmed by three managers and another interim gaffer.

Pochettino is set to take charge from the start of next month, and will have to overhaul the playing personnel significantly. 

Everton are in special measures with the Premier League after losses exceeding £370m over three years. 

In main Chelsea transfer news, the Blues are reportedly renewing their interest in the Nigeria international goal machine Victor Osimhen, who is also being linked with Paris Saint-Germain after firing Napoli to the third Italian title.
