Chelsea midfielder moves abroad as more Tottenham, Liverpool and Blues stars could follow: Premier League transfer rumours

Delays in Christian Eriksen signing a new contract at Tottenham have put Paris St Germain on high alert, according to the Express. While Spurs want to keep their star player, PSG have long held an interest in the 26-year-old Denmark midfielder and are said to be considering a £100million move.

As the European summer transfer window nears its conclusion, Ruben Loftus-Cheek is being targeted for a loan move from Chelsea, the Telegraph says. Schalke are thought to be among those poised to make an offer, but it remains to be seen whether Chelsea will be willing to let the 22-year-old England international leave Stamford Bridge – and Loftus-Cheek is said to want to remain in the Blues squad.

Danny Rose is being linked with a move away from Tottenham by the end of the month

Sticking with Schalke, and the German club are also being linked with an offer for Tottenham’s Danny Rose. The Mirror says the left-back could leave before the end of the month despite Spurs not being able to sign a replacement, with Schalke possibly facing competition from Paris St Germain for the £50million-rated England man.

One Chelsea player has already sealed his move abroad as midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has joined AC Milan on a season-long loan. Milan said the deal includes an option to make the move permanent.

The Frenchman moved to Stamford Bridge from Monaco last summer for a reported £40million, but struggled to make the desired impact in the Premier League.  Chelsea said in a statement: "The 23-year-old now makes the temporary switch to the Serie A side who are managed by Gennaro Gattuso and are competing in the Europa League this season."

Liverpool, meanwhile, will listen to offers for defender Ragnar Klavan, according to the Liverpool Echo. Boss Jurgen Klopp is keen to give Joe Gomez a chance to stake his claim for a regular starting spot alongside Virgil Van Dijk, with Joel Matip back in training and Dejan Lovren set to return from injury within weeks. Young defender Nat Phillips also impressed in pre-season and so, Klavan could be set for a move back to the Bundesliga. Also leaving the Reds could be goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, with Napoli interested according to the player's agent.

Summer rumours that Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha was heading for the exit door looked to have been put to bed, with the Mail saying the 25-year-old sees a future at Selhurst Park and talks are under way over a new deal.
