Transfer News: Done Deal, Chelsea close on De Jong agreement, Roma target Lindelof

As the Dutch midfielder continues to face increased pressure to leave his current club, Chelsea and Barcelona are very close to reaching an agreement on a transfer cost for Frenkie de Jong.

Sport reports that Chelsea would pay more than £68 million for the player if they were able to complete a deal, but the player's preferences are still a barrier to interest.

De Jong reportedly "refuses" to leave the Nou Camp, and Barcelona has acknowledged that the decision ultimately lies with him.

Roma target Lindelof

This summer, there has been widespread speculation that Eric Bailly, the center back for Manchester United, will be moving to AS Roma. However, Bailly is not the only Old Trafford player that AS Roma is monitoring.

It has been reported by Corriere dello Sport that Roma are considering making a move to acquire Victor Lindelof, who is no longer considered a first-choice option by Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho, the manager of Roma, is eager to rekindle his relationship with the player he brought to Manchester United in 2017.

The signing of Ndombele was completed by Newcastle before Villarreal.

According to Media Foot, Newcastle United are attempting to beat Villarreal to the signing of Tanguy Ndombele. Villarreal is their main competition.

The player is estimated to be worth roughly €50 million by Tottenham, which indicates that Newcastle United will need to shell out a significant sum of money in order to secure the player's services.

Tuchel might be able to persuade Aubameyang to sign with Chelsea.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly a player that Chelsea could be interested in signing. Even if he is content at Barcelona, he is aware that Robert Lewandowski will be the starting striker for Bayern Munich, and the fact that he has a positive relationship with Thomas Tuchel could be a deciding factor.

There is competition between Juve and Chelsea for Barcelona's forwards.

Memphis Depay has been extended an offer by Juventus of a two-year contract; nevertheless, Chelsea may stand in the way of the Italian club completing the transaction.

Both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the Dutchman are on the market as potential transfers for Barcelona.
