Chelsea will be looking to extend their winning streak to three matches when they face Wolves at the weekend.

The Blues have taken six points from the last six on offer, and currently sit fifth in the table having beaten Crystal Palace 2-1 in their most recent outing.

For their part, Wolves have won just once this season, and sacked manager Bruno Lage with the club currently in the relegation zone.

Chelsea “will be prepared” to pay Leeds United whatever their demands are to lure director of football Victor Orta to Stamford Bridge, according to finance expert Kieran Maguire. He said:“Chelsea have behaved in a haphazard and disjointed way over the summer with regards to recruitment. Leeds will therefore hold out for the maximum amount. If they do not get their way, they are entitled to put Orta on gardening leave and make things as awkward as possible for Chelsea. Having said that, given the speed with which Graham Potter went to Chelsea, I suspect that the club will be prepared to pay whatever the asking price is.” (Football Insider)

Leeds United are “definitely still interested” in PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo, according to Sky Sports reporter Tim Thornton. He said: “The problem that Leeds will have is the World Cup, and if he has a really, really good World Cup. They tried to get him in the previous window and get the deal done, for whatever reason, it didn’t get done. Leeds are definitely still interested, but it remains to be seen whether that interest means they can get the signing done.” Manchester United are also understood to be keen on the Dutchman too.

Newcastle United are “continuing to pay attention’“ to Porto goalkeeper Diogo Costa as a possible target for the January transfer window. The player could be set for an exit this winter, and has a release clause of around £52.2 million written into his contract in Portugal. (Jornal Do Noticias)

Crystal Palace, Leicester City, and Bournemouth are tracking Sheffield United left-back Rhys Norrington-Davies. The Premier League trio are all sending scouts to regularly keep tabs on the 23-year-old. (Football Insider)

Chelsea have “joined” Arsenal in the race to sign Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic. Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be keen. (Il Bianconero)

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is expected to be the subject of a Manchester United bid “pretty soon”, according to transfer insider Dean Jones. He said:“It’s a tough one because I genuinely don’t think there are many clubs he would want to leave Everton for. But if they continue at the bottom end of the Premier League, he’s going to have to consider it. We saw, when they were at risk of relegation last season, Tottenham were being linked with him. I just don’t think he can stay at Everton for that much longer if they continue to struggle and a genuine offer lands. Is he the type of goalkeeper that Ten Hag ideally wants? We will have to wait and see. But I do think we’re entering a time when Everton probably will get an offer pretty soon.” (GIVEMESPORT)
