Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Championship on Thursday, August 20.

Thursday morning's Championship transfer talk news roundup:


Fulham 'make offer for Barcelona's Gerard Pique'

Fulham are reportedly in contact with Barcelona over a potential move for Gerard Pique.

The 33-year-old was again a key player for Barca during the 2019-20 campaign, making 45 appearances in all competitions, while he has now featured on 543 occasions for the Catalan giants in all competitions.

Pique is allegedly one of a number of players available for transfer this summer, though, as Ronald Koeman's side prepare to rebuild ahead of the 2020-21 season.

According to Libero, Fulham, who will be back in the Premier League next term, have made an offer for the experienced central defender with the hope of bringing him back to England.

The report claims that it is now up to Barca to decide whether to accept the bid, although it is unclear whether Pique would be interested in a move to Craven Cottage.

The Spaniard previously represented Manchester United between 2004 and 2008, although he only made 12 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils before returning to Camp Nou.



Leeds United, Chelsea 'both interested in Sergio Romero'

Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is reportedly the subject of interest from both Leeds United and Chelsea ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

The 33-year-old has been David de Gea's understudy at United since arriving at Old Trafford in 2015, making 61 appearances for the English giants in all competitions.

Romero is allegedly unhappy with his current situation, though, and he could be pushed further down the pecking order if Dean Henderson returns to the club this summer.

According to ESPN, Leeds and Chelsea are keeping a close eye on developments, with both teams 'interested in the Argentina international'.

The report also names Everton as potential suitors as the Toffees consider replacing England's Jordan Pickford as their number one following an inconsistent season.

Romero had played six Europa League matches in a row for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side before being dropped for the semi-final clash with Sevilla on Sunday night.
