Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Sunday, July 12.

Sunday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:


Chelsea 'must qualify for Champions League to sign Kai Havertz'

Chelsea will reportedly have to qualify for next season's Champions League to stand a chance of signing Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz this summer.

The speculation surrounding the 21-year-old's future continues to gather pace, with Frank Lampard's side thought to be leading the race to sign him ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

However, according to Bild journalist Christian Falk, the English club's chances of signing the Germany international hinge on whether they can secure a spot in next season's premier European competition.

The Blues are currently third in the Premier League table but fourth-placed Leicester City and fifth-placed Manchester United would both go above them if they were to win their games in hand on Sunday and Monday respectively.

Fifth could yet be enough to qualify for the 2020-21 Champions League, though, with Manchester City set to find out on Monday whether their appeal against a two-season European ban has been successful.

Havertz enjoyed an impressive season at BayArena, scoring 17 times and providing nine assists in 43 appearances in all competitions, including 12 goals in 30 Bundesliga outings.



Hector Bellerin 'wants to leave Arsenal this summer'

Hector Bellerin is reportedly keen to leave Arsenal during this summer's transfer window.

The 25-year-old still has three years left to run on his contract at the Emirates Stadium, but the speculation surrounding the defender's future has gathered pace in recent weeks.

A whole host of clubs, including Sevilla, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Juventus, are believed to be interested in signing the Spaniard ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Bellerin has been restricted to just 14 Premier League appearances this season, largely due to injury, and according to Sky Deutschland, the full-back is keen to move on this summer.

The report claims that the former Barcelona youngster 'wants to change' teams ahead of next season as he is 'not satisfied' at the Emirates Stadium.

Bellerin has contributed one goal and two assists in 22 appearances for Mikel Arteta's side this term.
