Chelsea are favorite to sign £25m Wolves defender, United told to pay £100m for Leipzig star



Chelsea are considered favorite to sign high-flying Wolves left-back Rayan Ait Nouri in the summer transfer window, according to Daily Mail.

However, Ait Nouri was initially signed on mortgage from Angers in 2020 earlier before Wolves made the transfer permanent for around £10 million last season. Within the 2021/22 season the 21-year-old made 23 appearances within the Premier League, recording one one goal and 4 assists throughout all appearance for Wolves in 2021/22 season.

The defender has lengthy been monitored by a few of Europe’s club, with Manchester City and PSG extremely interested. Nevertheless, Chelsea‘s style of play might suit him more and a transfer could be sorted shortly. The London membership are on the lookout for a possible substitute for Marcos Alonso – who appears set to return to Spain.

Offers in the region of £25m will reportedly be thought-about by Wolves. Wolves wouldn’t be entitled to all of that charge with Angers understood to hold a 50 percent sell-on clause on Ait-Nouri. If Ait Nouri joins Chelsea we anticipate him to be a squad participant, and could be a back up for Ben Chilwell. However, that does not imply that he won’t get stable game time, as Chelsea can have lots of fixtures, each in home and European cups.

Man Utd told to pay £100m for Leipzig highly rated star

Manchester United have been told that they must pay a club-record fee of £100 million to sign Christopher Nkunku this summer.

The Red Devils are firm admirers of the France international, but RB Leipzig are reluctant to lose him during the ongoing transfer window.

The Bundesliga outfit want to keep him for at least one more season, and The Independent claims that they will only sell him for £100 million.

It is unlikely that United will make such a huge outlay on the 24-year-old, and they may have to look elsewhere for attacking reinforcements. Meanwhile, Nkunku is currently in the progress of negotiating a new contract beyond June 2024 which will include a low buy-out clause.

Leipzig are prepared to insert a release clause of around £50 million to convince the Frenchman to stay for at least another 12 months.

Aside from United, Chelsea have also been heavily linked with him, but are unlikely to follow up their interest amid the hefty asking price
