Chelsea transfer news: Blues could move for Rooney next summer, new Barca bid for David Luiz?

Wayne Rooney

A round up of key transfer stories this morning about Chelsea.

The Daily Mirror has reported that Chelsea will take another look at trying to sign Wayne Rooney from Manchester United next summer.

The current Premier League champions turned down two offers from the Blues for the forward in the last summer transfer window.

The Mirror reports that Chelsea are ready to pounce if a new contract for Rooney at Old Trafford fails to materialise.

Barcelona may come back in with an attempt to sign Chelsea defender David Luiz this winter.

The Spanish giants tried to sign the Brazilian last summer but failed to tempt him away from Stamford Bridge and to the Nou Camp.

The Daily Star has suggested a potential fee in the region of £29 million, however, if David Luiz was to leave the club he would have likely moved in the summer when he had the chance.

Chelsea’s strongest competition for St Etienne star Kurt Zouma will come from Arsenal also according to the Mirror.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is thought to be in pole position to sign the French under-21 international.

However, the Mirror has suggested him as a possible replacement for Bacary Sagna and Thomas Vermaelen in the Arsenal back four, which could increase their interest.
