Gonzalo Higuain moving to England?

If Chelsea have any hope in landing Gonzalo Higuain, it will be costly. Reports indicate the club would have to set a new transfer record if they hope on landing the prize Serie A striker.

Calum Chambers on the move?

Calum Chambers is reportedly a 20 million target for Crystal Palace. The Arsenal centre back impressed whilst on loan at Middlesbrough last season and is deemed surplus to requirements in North London. It is reported that Palace will look to loan the 22-year-old with the view for a permanent deal. The England under 21-year old will have a big impact at the club, being able to fill in at RB or CB, positions Palace require improvement. It will be interesting to see how much Palace are willing to pay for the centre back with a deal looking likely.

Jairo Riedewald, done and dusted

Jairo Riedewald has signed for Crystal Palace in what is being considered a major coup. Once described as one of the best teenagers in Europe, the 20-year-old centre back is set to be announced by the club in the next 24 hours. The defender will have a have a big impact on the team with the club lacking in defenders and the ball playing centre back will be a welcome addition as Frank De Boers overhaul of the defence begins.

Jacob Murphy set for Newcastle switch

Jacob Murphy looks set to complete a £12m move to Premier League new boys Newcastle United. Multiple sources are reporting the English starlet has finally been allowed to discuss personal terms with the North East side following lengthy negations.

Despite being developed by Norwich City, Murphy looks set to leave the club he joined when he was 11 in pursuit of Premier League success. Norwich are losing dynamism and pace from a winger who excels in 1v1 situations. Time will tell whether Murphy can bridge the gap between England’s second and top tier. His talent is undeniable.
