GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS
SunSport can exclusively reveal West Ham are considering a loan bid for Nathan Ake after being rocked by the news Kurt Zouma faces months on the sidelines through injury.
The 26-year-old Dutchman has started just three games in the league this season and is fourth choice centre-back at City.
And the Hammers will hope they can tempt him with the offer of regular first team football.
They would be unable to come up with a large fee for the former Bournemouth star but a loan deal may suit all parties.
Meanwhile, Andreas Christensen is set to ease Chelsea’s contract headaches by signing an extension ‘within days’.
Reports suggest the 25-year-old is ready to pen a new long-term deal at the club he joined back in 2012.
That will come as a blow to the likes of Barcelona and AC Milan who have been tracking the centre-back for months.
But Antonio Rudiger is reportedly on the verge of joining Real Madrid.
The Independent says the LaLiga giants have reached an ‘informal agreement’ with the defender following a meeting last month.
And Chelsea’s injury problems continue with Mateo Kovacic testing positive from coronavirus just one day after recovering from a hamstring setback.
Finally, Liverpool hope to fly in under-the-radar and nab Dortmund starlet Jude Bellingham while Premier League rivals are distracted by Erling Haaland.
But any move would likely cost the Reds a whopping club-record £90million.
Meanwhile, several of Liverpool’s rivals are thought to be intent on landing his team-mate Haaland instead.
Man United, Chelsea and Man City are understood to be tracking the prolific striker, who has a £64million release clause.
