In football transfer news, Chelsea want to send Kalidou Koulibaly and Romelu Lukaku to Inter in exchange for Andre Onana, while Newcastle United lead the race for James Maddison.

Chelsea get Andre Onana transfer boost as they look to offer Inter Milan two stars including Lukaku in swap deal

The Blues are eyeing Inter keeper Andre Onana and are now ready to make their move following the Italians' Champions League defeat against Manchester City on Saturday night.

Inter have already found a replacement in Guglielmo Vicario, from Serie A rivals Empoli.

But they are still demanding around £55million for Onana who kept Man City's formidable striker Erling Haaland at bay in the Champions League final in Istanbul. 

He was beaten only by a surprise shot from midfielder Rodri which sealed victory for the Premier League champions.

Incoming Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino is a huge admirer of Onana and is eager to get a deal done.

News that Inter will now push to sign Vicario will be most welcome for the Argentine as he prepares to take over officially from July 1.

Lukaku played alongside Onana against City in what may have been his last game for Inter before the end of his loan from Chelsea.

The Belgian is due back for talks with Pochettino but would prefer to remain in Italy.

There have been talks about a possible swap deal with unwanted Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly thrown in.

Newcastle are currently leading Tottenham in the race to sign Leicester's James Maddison.

Both clubs are interested in signing the attacking midfielder, who has only a year left on his contract, this summer.

Newcastle's interest stems back to the January transfer window, when Leicester were unwilling to sell the 26-year-old.
