Premier League Transfer News June 19, 2017: Chelsea Makes Push For Double Signing, Liverpool Falls Short

Reports that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Spain this summer shocked the football world and sparked speculation of where the Real Madrid striker will move.

The destination could be Manchester United, Real Madrid, China or even the United States. But there is plenty more going on in the transfer market today, or plenty more rumors and whispers, anyway.

Chelsea is looking to wrap up its first deals of the summer after potentially falling behind title rivals, while a Liverpool offer has fallen short putting the deal in danger of falling apart.

First, to the Premier League champion. Chelsea is yet to sign a player this summer, but the Guardian reports this morning that Antonio Conte’s club will look to wrap up two deals this week. Juventus left-back Alex Sandro and Monaco central midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko are the two players Conte wants to bring to Stamford Bridge.

A former Chelsea player has been on the radar for Liverpool since the Premier League season ended. Mohamed Salah, of Roma, is the target of a £35 million offer from Jurgen Klopp’s club, according to Sky Sports, but the offer does not meet the Italian team’s asking price and Liverpool will not increase the fee.
