Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Thursday, August 20.
Thursday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:
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.
Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly determined to sign Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale during this summer's transfer window.
Bale was restricted to just 20 appearances for Madrid during the 2019-20 campaign, while he hardly featured after the restart in June and told head coach Zinedine Zidane to leave him out of their trip to Manchester City in the Champions League earlier this month.
The 31-year-old is allegedly prepared to see out the final two years of his lucrative contract at the Bernabeu even if it means that he does not represent the club again.
According to Cuatro, Zidane is desperate to offload the attacker this summer, and he could be offered a return to Tottenham by Mourinho, who is determined to secure his signature.
Bale started his professional career with Southampton before joining Spurs, representing the London giants on 203 occasions between 2007 and 2013, scoring 55 times in the process.
The former left-back scored just twice in 16 La Liga appearances during the 2019-20 season, playing only a minor role in the team's title success.
