Date published: Tuesday 25th July 2017 11:55

Liverpool are plotting a move for a talented Polish teenager, while Chelsea have been linked with eight players as part of a huge £250m transfer raid, according to Tuesday’s newspapers.



Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is chasing Legia Warsaw’s teenage starlet Sebastian Szymanski, according to reports in Poland.

Both The Sun and the Daily Star, via the Polska Times, claim the Reds sent scouts to watch the youngster last season after he broke into Legia’s first team.

The 18-year-old broke into Legia’s first team last season, making a string of substitute appearances in the Polish top flight.

And it’s claimed the Reds could be making a bid for the talented midfielder, who has been capped nine times by Poland’s U19s.


Chelsea are being tipped to make up plenty more new signings this summer, with eight players linked with the Blues in Tuesday’s papers.

The Times reckons the Antonio Conte has been given a minimum £150m more to spend this summer and has the licence to bring in up to £250m worth of new talent in total.

The Daily Star reckons Conte wants Southampton pair Cedric Soares and Ryan Bertrand after missing out on Danilo and Benjamin Mendy, while several of papers reckon a move for his Saints teammate Virgil van Dijk also remains a strong possibility.

The Star also reckons Chelsea will sign Barcelona star Sergi Roberto and are willing to pay his £37.5m release clause.

The Daily Mail, meanwhile also suggests Alex Sandro, Antonio Candreva and Fernando Llorente will sign before the summer is out, and finally, The Sun reckons Everton’s teenage midfielder Tom Davies will also be targeted.
