Chelsea reportedly join battle for Sancho; Ramsey returning to England?

The Harry Kane transfer saga has been developing after news broke that he reportedly stated his desire to leave the club, with Manchester City said to be his favoured choice of next club.

Chelsea reportedly launch bid for Sancho

Chelsea have reportedly joined the battle to sign England playmaker Jadon Sancho in the summer by preparing an £80million bid for the 21-year-old, report The Sun.

Thomas Tuchel is said to be a big admirer of the Borussia Dortmund player, with the club reportedly hoping to see Sancho's value increase by showing his talent on the international stage with England in this summer's European Championships.

Manchester United are still the frontrunners to sign the young Englishman, an academy graduate of Manchester City, having been long-time admirers of Sancho.

A move to Old Trafford this summer is odds-on at 10/11 with Sky Bet. Liverpool are priced at 5/1 to sign the England international, while Chelsea have moved to 8/1.

Kane heading to the blue side of Manchester?

The Times are reporting that Harry Kane's preferred option this summer is a move to Premier League champions Manchester City.

The England captain's solo lap of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after Spurs' defeat to Aston Villa on Wednesday night sparked rumours that it was a goodbye to fans at the ground.

Kane, 27, is also said to have a verbal agreement with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy that he would be allowed to leave the club this summer after being convinced to stay with them for this season.

Kane is priced at 11/8 to still be a Spurs player after the summer transfer window, but a move to City is available at 7/4 with Sky Bet. Manchester United are also in the running at 5/2 and 6/1 respectively.

Ramsey to return to England?

Liverpool are reportedly interested in bringing Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey back to England this summer, according to TuttoJuve in Italy.

A cut-price deal could be available to the Reds, who look set to lose fellow central midfielder Gini Wijnaldum in the summer as his contract expires.

The Welshman is said to be on extremely high wages at Juve, but has struggled to nail down a regular starting place at the club since making the move to Turin in 2019 - having made 33 starts and 32 substitute appearances as a Juventus player.

Liverpool are 5/2 favourites to sign Ramsey if he leaves Juve this summer, with Everton and West Ham available at 6/1, and a surprise return to Arsenal at 8/1.
