Chelsea to keep midfielder, Bayern want Liverpool defender: Thursday's top transfer rumours


Chelsea are looking to retain Conor Gallagher's services this summer, while a Liverpool defender has emerged as a main transfer target for Bayern Munich. Here we run through Thursday's top transfer rumours. 


Chelsea considering new deal for in-demand midfielder 


Chelsea are considering offering Conor Gallagher a new deal despite interest from Aston Villa and Tottenham, reports the Guardian. 


Gallagher has just 12 months left on his current contract at Stamford Bridge and is keen to extend his stay at the club. 


The Chelsea hierarchy have considered cashing in on the England international as they look to balance the books. 


Gallagher's homegrown status would work in the Blues' favour as the funds raised from the 24-year-old's sale would constitute as 'pure profit'. 


However, Chelsea are now looking into the possibility of offering Gallagher a new contract.



Bayern target Liverpool defender 


Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has emerged as a target for German side Bayern Munich, reports the Mirror. 


Gomez is with the England squad for Euro 2024 and impressed when called upon in a number of roles for the Reds last season. 


His performances for the Merseyside outfit didn't go unnoticed either with Bayern now weighing up a move for the 27-year-old. 


Man Utd boss set for two-year contract extension 


Erik ten Hag is set to sign a two-year contract extension to continue as Manchester United boss, reports the Telegraph. 


Ten Hag was expected to be relieved of his duties at Old Trafford despite leading the club to the Carabao Cup and FA Cup during his two years in charge. 


United, though, have decided to keep the Dutchman and are readying a new contract, this despite being linked with Gareth Southgate and Mauricio Pochettino. 


Chelsea considering move for Bournemouth star 


Chelsea are considering a summer move for Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke, according to HITC. 


Solanke has drawn admirers from a number of Premier League sides following an impressive season that saw him net 19 times for the Cherries. 


Arsenal and Tottenham have also been credited with an interest in Solanke, who is believed to have a £65m release clause. 


Juventus attacker wanted by West Ham 


West Ham are interested in Juventus winger Matias Soule this summer with the Old Lady willing to cash in on the Argentine, reports Fabrizio Romano. 


Soule spent last season on loan with Frosinone, and despite their relegation, the 21-year-old impressed. 


And the Hammers are said to be considering a move for the Argentinian attacker as they look to revamp their squad under Julen Lopetegui. 


Man Utd to face competition from Liverpool for midfielder 


Manchester United are expected to face competition from Liverpool in the race to sign Joao Neves from Benfica, reports Portuguese publication Correio da Manha. 


Neves is one of the most sought after central midfielders on the continent following a breakout season for the Liga Portugal giants. 


United are keen to land the 19-year-old this summer as they prepare to overhaul their midfield yet rivals Liverpool are now believed to be keeping tabs on the Portugal international.
