Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham


After now already having rejected two bids from Liverpool for 24-year-old Ryan Bertrand, Jose Mourinho has told both Liverpool and Tottenham that the England left-back would not leave Stamford Bridge for less than £8 million.

Spurs new boss Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino is also being linked with Bertrand in what appears to be a clear sign that beefing up his back four is a main priority.

The £8 million that Chelsea is asking however is just £2 million short of the valuation Swansea City put on Ben Davies who at only 21-years-old may be a better prospect.

During his time at Chelsea Bertrand has been sent out on loan six times and is now after not being able to get a place in the Chelsea starting team looking to make a permanent move away from the club.

Mourinho has decided he would rather play Cesar Azpilicueta out-of-position than give Bertrand his natural slot and with Liverpool looking for a left-back having tried to sign Sevilla’a Alberto Moreno, Rodgers may now turn to Bertrand who he knows well from his time at the Chelsea academy, and hope the youngster can emulate Daniel Sturridge who could also not get a start with Chelsea but has become a top scorer with the Reds.
