Marina Granovskaia closing in on completing Chelsea’s latest summer transfer deal

Published

Chelsea youngster Ike Ugbo is very close to leaving Stamford Bridge and completing a move to Belgian giants Genk.

The 22-year-old, who has never made a senior appearance for the Blues, is poised to leave the club on a permanent basis after a highly successful loan spell at Cercle Brugge last season.

During his time with the Belgian outfit, Ugbo netted 17 goals in 34 appearances, forcing clubs across Europe to sit up and take note of his talents in the final third.

Now, following several weeks of rumours concerning his future, including reports linking him with moves to both Fulham and Watford, Ugbo is poised to return to Belgium, joining Genk on a permanent deal.

It is reported by Italian sports journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, as cited by sportslens, that Ugbo has agreed personal terms with the Pro League outfit and hopes to get the deal wrapped up ‘as soon as possible.’

Ugbo’s goals for Brugge last season played a significant role in helping them avoid relegation from the Belgian top flight.

However it was not enough to convince the 22-year-old frontman to join them on a permanent deal, despite them having the option to sign him at the end of his loan spell.

It is believed that Ugbo wishes to test himself at a higher level and believes Genk is the perfect place for him to take that next step on his career ladder, although he did have interest from within England.

It was not just English clubs that were chasing Ugbo’s signature, however, as the likes of PSV Eindhoven and Besiktas were also said to be keen on landing the former Barnsley loanee.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.

Bellingham plays alongside plenty of Chelsea stars on the international stage with England, so let’s hope they can put in a good word to try tempt him to the Bridge.
