Monday's Premier League transfer talk news roundup: Declan Rice, Jorginho, Jadon Sancho
Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Monday, September 14.
Monday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:
Chelsea to sell four players including Jorginho to fund Declan Rice bid?
Chelsea are reportedly looking to offload up to four players in order to raise funds to sign Declan Rice from West Ham United.
The Blues are understood to have turned their attention to signing Rice after agreeing a deal for Edouard Mendy, who is expected to be officially confirmed as a Chelsea player in the coming days.
However, West Ham are thought to be demanding €80m (£74.1m) for the 21-year-old England international - a price which Chelsea are unwilling to meet.
The Daily Star reports that Frank Lampard has earmarked four players he could sell in order to raise funds, having already spent more than £200m in the current transfer window.
At the top of that list is Jorginho, who fell out of favour with Lampard last season and had been linked with Juventus before Maurizio Sarri was sacked.
Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater are also deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge after the addition of Kai Havertz added to their already competitive midfield ranks.
The last of the quartet reportedly up for sale is Andreas Christensen, who has fallen further down the pecking order following the arrival of Thiago Silva.
Chelsea have been the biggest spending Premier League club this summer, bringing in Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Xavier Mbuyamba and Malang Sarr in addition to Havertz and Silva.
Tottenham Hotspur 'given green light to sign Willian Jose'
Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly been given the go-ahead to sign Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose.
The North London outfit have been linked with a host of forwards as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his attacking options during the 2020-21 campaign.
Torino's Andrea Belotti, Watford stalwart Troy Deeney and Braga's Paulinho have all been mentioned as possible solutions for Mourinho, who supposedly wants to provide a backup and more competition for Harry Kane up top.
Spurs may have received a boost in their attempts to land a new striker, with Spanish outlet El Desmarque claiming that Sociedad are willing to let Jose depart.
The 28-year-old, who has recently tested positive for coronavirus, scored 11 goals in La Liga last season and still has just under four years left to run on his current deal with Sociedad.
Tottenham fell to defeat in their opening game of the new Premier League season as Dominic Calvert-Lewin's header saw Everton take all three points in North London on Sunday.
