Chelsea & Real Agree €190m Deal For Hazard

 We take a look at the biggest transfer news and rumours from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and beyond

Chelsea and Real Madrid have agreed a €190 million (£170m/$222m) deal for Eden Hazard, per Le10Sport .

Real are interested in securing both Hazard and Blues goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, but the deal agreed only includes the attacker.

Hazard has scored 89 goals and provided 70 assists in 300 appearances for the Blues.

Everton close to £50m Richarlison deal

Everton are closing in on the £50 million ($65m) signing of Richarlison from Watford, the Daily Mail claims.
Relations between the two clubs have been strained since the Toffees approached Marco Silva to take over at Goodison Park while the Portuguese was still in charge at Vicarage Road.
However, Silva, now in the opposite dugout, is a huge fan of the 21-year-old Brazilian attacker, and the Hornets are unlikely to turn down the opportunity to make a massive profit on a player that cost a mere £11.5m ($15m) from Fluminense in 2017.

Pavard chase heats up in Germany

Bayern Munich are close to agreeing terms with Stuttgart's Benjamin Pavard, although Borussia Dortmund are also interested in the young defender, Sky Sports Germany reports.
The 22-year-old's preference is to play Champions League football, which both clubs can offer, though competition for a starting spot would be less fierce at BVB, even after Abdou Diallo's arrival.
The report claims that Pavard would prefer to live in Munich, however, and the young Frenchman could slot into the side should Jerome Boateng leave, or even move to right-back, freeing up Joshua Kimmich to play in midfield.

Sarri wants Reina at Chelsea

New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has asked the club to sign Pepe Reina from AC Milan, according to Premium Sport.

With Thibaut Courtois on the verge of completing a move to Real Madrid, the Blues are in the market for a quality replacement for the Belgian.
And Sarri, who coached Reina during the pair's time at Napoli, feels that the Spain veteran is the right man for the job at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal won't pay €30m for Andre Gomes

Arsenal have told Barcelona that they will not meet the Catalan club's €30 million (£26m/$35m) valuation of Andre Gomes, according to RAC1.
Barca are eager to offload the Portuguese, with the midfielder being largely unimpressive since his 2016 move from Valencia.
The Gunners, who are said to be the only side interested in signing Gomes, are in no rush to push through a deal and will wait for the Spanish champions to lower their demands.

Man City rule out moves for Pjanic, Thiago & Kovacic

Manchester City sources have ruled out a big-money move for Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic, Goal understands.
Reports in Italy had claimed that City boss Pep Guardiola has spoken to Pjanic in the past few days to convince him to move to the Etihad Stadium in an €80 million (£72m/$94m) deal.
City have been linked with a number of midfielders since missing out on preferred target Jorginho, but Goal understands that a move for an established name is unlikely at this stage in the window.
