Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Championship on Saturday, July 11.

Saturday morning's Championship transfer talk news roundup:

Leeds United among clubs keen on Brighton & Hove Albion defender?

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Haydon Roberts has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target of Leeds United.

Last summer, the Championship leaders agreed to sign Brighton centre-back Ben White on a season-long loan, a deal which has subsequently helped the Yorkshire giants move to the brink of promotion to the Premier League.

According to The Telegraph, Marcelo Bielsa is prepared to return to the Seagulls to agree a similar arrangement for Roberts.

The 18-year-old's only senior outing has come in the EFL Cup, when the centre-back got on the scoresheet in a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa in September.

The teenager also made three appearances in the EFL Trophy earlier this season, helping Brighton's Under-21 side concede just one goal during those games.

Brentford, Derby County, RB Leipzig and Mainz 05 may all reportedly choose to rival Leeds for Roberts's signature.

Said Benrahma friend drops Chelsea hint

A friend of Brentford winger Said Benrahma has dropped a huge hint that the 24-year-old could be heading to Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

Having amassed a terrific return of 15 goals and nine assists in the Championship this term, Benrahma is naturally being linked with a move to a top-flight club.

Chelsea have been touted as a potential destination for the Algeria international, and Benrahma's friend and fellow professional footballer Fahd Moufi has recently added fuel to the fire on social media.

Commenting on Benrahma's Instagram Live, Moufi, who plays as a defender for Portuguese side Tondela, said: "Congratulations on Chelsea, my bro."

Chelsea have already bolstered their attacking options with the signings of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, but Frank Lampard is supposedly keen to add more firepower to his frontline ahead of next season.

Bayer Leverkusen's Kai Havertz is reportedly a priority target for the Blues, and a recent report suggested that the 21-year-old is keen to move to Stamford Bridge in order to link up with Germany teammates Antonio Rudiger and Werner.
