Chelsea locked in ‘advanced talks’ over transfer and fresh windfall

All the latest Chelsea transfer news and rumours as the Blues look to turn the page on their heavy defeat to Leeds United.

Chelsea were dealt a major early season blow over the weekend.

The Blues were thrashed 3-0 by Leeds United away from home after a disappointing performance at Elland Road.

Thomas Tuchel will want much better from his men, and this defeat was particularly disappointing on the back of two bright displays to open the season.

New signings in the final week of the window are going to be key for Chelsea if they are going to a title bid.

And here we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Stamford Bridge.

Aubameyang talks

Chelsea are now said to be in advanced talks over the signing of Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

According to Albert Roge, the Blues are now making real progress over the former Arsenal frontman, and they are close to striking a deal.

The latest proposed deal is said to be worth £18million upfront and £4.2million in add-ons.

The Blues need a striker after losing Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner this summer.

Alonso to stay

Marcos Alonso is a player who could have been impacted by the Aubameyang deal.

It was claimed the Blues could use the Spaniard to strike a deal with Barca, but that will not be the case.

According to Ben Jacobs, the deal will be worth cash only, and that means Alonso is likely to stay put.

That’s especially the case because of another transfer development involving another Chelsea left-back, as you will see below.

Emerson deal

Chelsea are close to securing a transfer windfall in the form of Emerson Palmieri.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Blues have agreed a deal with West Ham to sell the out of favour left-back.

It’s claimed the deal will be worth £13million initially, with £5million worth of add-ons also included.

Emerson spent last season out on loan with Lyon.
