Football Transfer News: Pochettino wants Ugarte in his new setup at Chelsea

Pochettino needs Ugarte as a priority signing. Chelsea are currently in talks with Sporting over a £52 million deal to sign the 22-year-old midfielder. Todd Boehly has offered a wage package much lower than Paris Saint-Germain are offering Ugarte. However, the American may be willing to improve his offer if Aubameyang leaves Chelsea and frees up more space on the wage bill.

According to Turkish journalist Ertan Süzgün, Galatasaray want to sign the 33-year-old. Aubameyang's current deal is expiring at the end of next season. His future is in doubt after a poor debut season scoring just three goals in 22 appearances.
