Thursday's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup: Federico Bernardeschi, Andrea Pirlo, David de Gea

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Chelsea on Thursday, August 20.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Chelsea eye possible reinforcements.

The Blues failed to bring in a single player during the January window, despite seeing their transfer ban cut short by FIFA, but have already been busy this summer.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Stamford Bridge.

Thursday morning's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup:

Chelsea considering move for Federico Bernardeschi?

Chelsea are reportedly weighing up the possibility of moving for Juventus attacker Federico Bernardeschi during this summer's transfer window.

The 26-year-old, who has recently been linked with Manchester United, scored twice and provided three assists in 38 appearances for the Old Lady during the 2019-20 campaign.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve are keen to offload the attacker in the coming weeks as new head coach Andrea Pirlo looks to move the team in a different direction.

The report claims that Chelsea are keeping a close eye on developments as they consider a summer move, while Atletico Madrid have also been credited with an interest.

Bernardeschi joined the Italian champions from Fiorentina in 2017 and has made 108 appearances for the club over the last three campaigns, contributing 10 goals and 15 assists.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have allegedly been given a deadline of August 28 by Bayer Leverkusen to agree a deal for Germany attacker Kai Havertz.

Brighton & Hove Albion 'deny Chelsea bid for Lewis Dunk'

Brighton & Hove Albion have reportedly ruled out selling Lewis Dunk and have rubbished suggestions that Chelsea made a £40m bid for the defender.

The 28-year-old boyhood Chelsea fan is rumoured to have been eyed up by the Blues ahead of next season as Frank Lampard attempts to tighten up at the back.

Recent reports alleged that Dunk was on the verge of leaving Brighton, with Tottenham Hotspur also showing an interest, but talkSPORT claims that the one-cap England international is going nowhere this summer.

Dunk has made 306 appearances for Brighton in his decade at the club and has been a regular during their three seasons in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Albion have also supposedly informed interested clubs that fellow defender Ben White, who starred on loan with Leeds United last season, is also not for sale.
