Tottenham agree to send senior star on loan as Chelsea learn Aubameyang price tag
All the latest Chelsea and Tottenham transfer news and rumours as the two London clubs look to make it two from two.
It has been a busy summer for both club so far, with Tottenham acting quickly and decisively, while Chelsea have had to be patient, needing a little more due to key exits, particularly defensively.
The search goes on for Chelsea, while Tottenham will also be keeping an eye out for opportunities ahead of the window slamming shut.
With that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours concerning both clubs.
Lo Celso exit agreed
Tottenham have now agreed an exit for Giovani Lo Celso.
The Argentine spent the back end of last season on loan with Villarreal, and he is not part of Antonio Conte’s plans for this season.
Villarreal have been slow in their attempts this summer due to salary cap issues, leading to links with Fiorentina.
But the Yellow Submarine have now agreed a deal to re-sign Lo Celso on loan for this season, according to Marca and various others in Spain.
What we don’t know just yet is whether there is an option to buy in the deal, which is expected to be completed next week.
Aubameyang price tag
Chelsea have been linked with a move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang over recent days, and they now know how much they will have to pay to seal the deal.
According to Toni Juanmarti, Barca want just over £21million to sell Aubameyang this summer.
The striker is said to be willing to leave Camp Nou, but that may be seen as a steep price by Chelsea given Aubameyang is now 33 years of age.
Kai Havertz is being linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer.
According to Sport1 via Football.london, Bayern Munich have expressed an interest in signing the attacking midfielder, who joined Chelsea for more than £70million only two years ago.
Havertz has been a little inconsistent, but Thomas Tuchel has largely kept faith up until now.
It will be interesting to see whether the Blues can be tempted.
