Chelsea are lining up a shock move for Manchester City outcast Joe Hart as Real Madrid close in on a deal for Thibaut Courtois.

"It's a way of football that I believe in, that I really like, that I grew up in this system", the 31-year-old said.

Liverpool sealed a £65million deal for Alisson Becker on Thursday evening after beating Blackburn Rovers 2-0 at Ewood Park.

London regional the Evening Standard reported this week that Cahill is considering his future at the club amid suggestions Juventus defender Daniele Rugani will be signed.

It seems increasingly likely that Brazil World Cup star Willian will join Barcelona while Hazard is a well-known target for Real Madrid.

Furthermore, the former France global could really make Di Laurentiis regret his comments at least two times a year if Calciomercato's report that the 30-year-old is actually on the brink of a move to one of Napoli's Serie A rivals, AC Milan. Juve's bid will depend on the sale of Higuain or Mandzukic after Ronaldo's arrival.

Real Madrid's interest in Hazard is well documented.

Having made his debut for Milan as a 16-year-old in 2015, Gianluigi Donnarumma soon established himself as first-choice at the club and the latest in a long line of Italian goalkeeping talent.

The former Napoli coach knows he can not change the entire group at Chelsea but, despite bringing £57m Jorginho over with him from Napoli, he has identified central midfield as a key area to improve during the current transfer window.

Chelsea know they would need to get a replacement in fast as the transfer window shuts in three weeks. Like a game of Chess, a move by one club can entirely change the plans of another club.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton has prioritised signing a winger and centre-back before the transfer window closes with AZ Alkmaar's 24-year-old Iranian global, Alireza Jahanbakhsh a target. But can they allow Alvaro Morata to leave when their backup strikers are Oliver Giroud and Michy Batshuayi?

Update On The Spurs’ Plans For Kawhi Leonard
Brazil's second-half fightback came after sustained cheering and chanting by their sizeable fan contingent at Kazan Arena. They paid an immediate price when Fernandinho nodded Eden Hazard's corner into his own net unpressured after 13 minutes.
