With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Chelsea are linked with a £12m bid for Bruma while Liverpool are set to miss out on Lucas Digne.

Chelsea table £12m Bruma bid

First up and the Metro are reporting that Chelsea have submitted a £12m bid for Sporting Lisbon ace Bruma after Real Madrid entered the chase for the highly-rated winger.

The report claims that Blues boss Jose Mourinho has decided to make his move after watching the 18-year-old put in some impressive display’s at this summer’s Under-20 World Cup, where he’s also caught the attention of Spanish giants Madrid.

Chelsea are believed to have been tracking Bruma for some time and the Metro suggest they made their official approach earlier this week, contacting Lisbon to submit a formal £12m offer which would be paid in full up front with the option for the attacker to remain on loan in Portugal next season.

The Blues have close ties with the player having signed his brother, Buomesca, three years ago but injuries saw the youngster struggle to make an impact during his time at Stamford Bridge and Mourinho is now hoping that negative experience won’t go against them as they look to sign the exciting winger nicknamed ‘the new Ronaldo’.

Liverpool miss out on Digne

Next up and the Mirror are reporting that Liverpool are set to miss out on the signing of left-back Lucas Digne with big-spending  Monaco expected to announce his signing shortly.

The highly-rated defender has been tipped for a bright future after starring for Lille last season, making 40 appearances in all competitions, and it seems his impressive form had attracted interest from throughout Europe.

The Mirror claim Liverpool were one of several clubs keen on signing the 19-year-old this summer but they’ve been blown out the water by moneybags Monaco, who’ve continued to invest heavily since winning promotion back to Ligue 1, and they’ve reportedly agreed a £55,000-a-week deal with the teenager.

    I bet that was news to BR as he had no intention of signing him. Daily Mirror trying to cause trouble again, they’re worse than the S**. and that’s saying something.
