Transfers: Chelsea are vying for a Serie A star

The winter transfer window is closed. But even in the transfer-free period, the rumor mill is churning. The transfer rumors on March 9th.

Mikel Arteta

Mikel Arteta is fully focused on Arsenal these days despite rumors circulating that he could succeed Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid.

Speaking at the press conference ahead of the Europa League game against Sporting CP, the Spaniard said: “The thing is that coaches and players can’t control what’s written. What I can say is that I’m fully focused on what I’m doing here. And I’m extremely proud and grateful for what I’m doing at this club. And that’s all.”

Christopher Galtier

PSG coaches have had a relatively short stint in Paris lately. After leaving the Champions League against FC Bayern, Christophe Galtier is now on the brink after less than a year in office.

But the coach is initially covered: “My future? It’s really too early to talk about it. It depends on the management and my president. And there is disappointment.”

Galtier also said: “The club had high hopes in this competition. I remain focused on the end of this season.” PSG led Ligue 1 by eight points over Marseille but are already eliminated in the cup.

Gianluigi Donnarumma

The Italian European champion Gianluigi Donnarumma is also not thinking of saying goodbye to Paris. After the failure of PSG in Munich, the keeper commented on his situation and on the progress of ex-club Milan.

“I have no regrets and I have no doubts about my choice to join PSG,” Donnarumma told Sky Italia. “I never had any doubts. And am I happy for Milan? Sure, but I’m proud to play for PSG.”

Odysseys Vlachodimus

Odysseas Vlachodimos stays at Benfica! Born in Stuttgart, he extended his contract in Lisbon on Wednesday until 2027. His club announced this on social media.

Vlachodimos has been playing for Benfica since 2018 and was previously active at Panathinaikos Athens. The Greek originally came from the youth team at VfB Stuttgart.

Diogo Dalot

The right-back should be loud The Sun are facing an extension at Manchester United. The 23-year-old is one of the regulars of coach Erik ten Hag and has been playing for United since 2018, but was loaned to Milan for a year in the meantime. His current contract runs until 2024.

Recently, there have been rumors that Dalot should be on FC Barcelona’s note. However, a move to Catalonia seems unlikely anyway because of the financial problems there.

Hirving Lozano

Next one please! Apparently Chelsea are now also interested in Napoli’s Hirving Lozano. “Chelsea like the Mexican as blues coach Graham Potter likes that type of winger. In that case Napoli could rake in €50m and send it straight to Sassuolo for Laurienté and Frattesi,” Italian journalist Raffaele Auriemma said Rado Crc.

However, Wolverhampton are also said to be interested in Lozano.

Armand Laurienté is also a winger and has a contract until 2027, while Davide Frattesi (contract until 2026) is more at home in central midfield. Lozano’s contract only runs until 2024.

Harry Maguire

Harry Maguire doesn’t seem to play a particularly big role under manager Erik ten Hag at Manchester United. Accordingly, there have been transfer rumors about the national player for a long time.

How 90 mins now reported, Newcastle United are said to be the favorites to sign the centre-back. Also still in the running: West Ham.

Maguire’s contract runs until 2025. He joined United from Leicester City in 2019 for a whopping €87m.

Uwe Koschinat

Uwe Koschinat should protect Arminia Bielefeld from relegation from the 2nd division. The East Westphalians announced the commitment of the 51-year-old as the new head coach on Thursday. Koschinat succeeds Daniel Scherning, who was fired on Tuesday one day after sporting director Samir Arabi split.

“Management and the board of directors have drawn up a clear requirement profile for our new head coach internally,” said managing director Christoph Wortmann: “Uwe Koschinat has our full confidence in leading our team with the support of all Armins to direct relegation in the 2nd Bundesliga.”

Thomas Meunier

Thomas Meunier, who apparently no longer plays a role at BVB, is said to be loud Mundo Deportivo be one of three – rather unrealistic – options for FC Barcelona’s right-back position.

Meunier still has a contract until 2024, but has not played a game for BVB since the World Cup and after recovering from a torn muscle fiber. A departure seems therefore quite conceivable. However, FC Barcelona may not be allowed to make any transfers this summer, which complicates matters.

Andrew Herzog

Jürgen Klinsmann is tackling his new challenge as coach of the South Korean national team with an old friend. The Austrian Andreas Herzog will be the former national coach’s assistant.

Herzog confirmed this on Instagram. “I’m really looking forward to the exciting task and working with Jürgen Klinsmann again,” said Herzog Sky Sports Austria. The 54-year-old will continue to work there as a TV expert.
