Chelsea transfer news: Blues in for Bayern Munich star, Milan front man reiterates Premier League snub

A round up of the latest transfer stories about Chelsea.

Chelsea have reportedly told Bayern Munich to name their price for midfielder Toni Kroos.

Bundesliga expert Jan Aage Fjortoft claims to have spoken to an insider at the German and European champions.

Fjortoft has confirmed that Kroos has rejected a new contract at Bayern but is more likely to move in a summer deal.

AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has insisted he is not looking for a return to the Premier League.

Chelsea have been reportedly considering the option of signing the former Manchester City man as Jose Mourinho looks to add firepower to his attack.

“They [the media] put out something about me every day. Nothing is true,” he told Rai Sport.

Southampton have insisted left-back Luke Shaw isn’t for sale this month or in the summer.

Chelsea are one of the sides with a reported interest in the teenage defender but Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino has reiterated claims that the youngster won’t be going anywhere.

“At the moment Southampton have no interest in selling Luke Shaw. Not in the summer either. Southampton have an expectation regarding Luke’s future and have no ambition of selling,” said Pochettino.
