Transfer News: Chelsea proposing a swap deal as Manchester United lineup for a Striker

It is a new month, and it's barely a week before the EPL kicks off. Chelsea are looking to add a defensive reinforcement to fill the void left by the departure of Rudiger and Christiansen.

The Blues are considering a number of options with Wesley Fofana, Josko Gvardiol and Denzel Dumfries. Chelsea have been holding a standing interest in RB Leipzig's Josko Gvardiol and, according to Caught Offside, the west Londoners have proposed a swap deal involving Timo Werner for the Croatian defender.

Gvardiol is a left-footed defender and is comfortable playing in the back-three or back-four system. On the ball, he displays calm and confidence, and this profile fits Thomus Tuchel's playing style.

Elsewhere, Manchester United are in the hunt for a striker after Cristiano Ronaldo expressed his desire to leave. United have been without Anthony from Ajax, but the striker has proven to be expensive. The Red Devils' £50 million bid was rejected after falling short of their £67 million valuation.

Ten Hag has turned his attention to RB Salzburg's Benjamin Sesko but they are facing competition from Chelsea who recently joined the race. The Blues Boss is planning for meeting with Sesko representative and this could be a blow for United. However Sasa Kalajdzic also in consideration as a fall back option for Manchester. Ronaldo's tension is causing a stir at Old Trafford, and the former Ajax coach wants a striker to settle things down. The Portuguese sensation was involved in a draw against Rayo Valleceno, but left the ground early before the end of the game. Though ten Hag refused to comment on Ronaldo's early departure, it is clear that the United forward is unhappy at Manchester.
