Not sure when the transfer market will open for the summer transfer market or if there will even be a transfer window.

But there is already some big news as it appears that RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has agreed in principle to join Chelsea in a stunning deal worth £53million move on wages of £180,000-a-week.

Looks like Havertz won't be EPL bound, Bayern collecting more young German talent.
Bayern are interested in Kai Havertz but want him for 2021. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool, Man United and Chelsea are also interested. However Leverkusen remain firm on their €100m asking price which makes it doubtful that any club would pay this summer
Don't know what happened between Timo Werner and Liverpool but he looked certain to be heading to Anfield a few months ago.

This from The Athletic
Timo Werner set #LFC a separate deadline to make a final decision on whether they were prepared to meet his release clause. Klopp consulted with FSG, then called Werner to explain why the move would not happen. Klopp insisted the reasoning was purely financial.
Though, "no £54m Chelsea deal in place for Werner", claims RB Leipzig director.

It all seems to be happening at Chelsea

Roma "in advanced talks to sign Pedro on a free from Chelsea".

I'd say Willian will follow him out the door. Both good servants but Chelsea have a few younger attacking players now.

Rumour is they're also in for Chilwell and Nathan Ake. Could cement themselves in the top 3 with moves like that rather than just having a top 2.

Havertz to Chelsea doing the rounds now.

Clubs willing to spend right now have a massive opportunity.

Apparently, Werner was tied to the Morata money (£58) that is payable this summer in full with Werner's payment partially payable next year.

But at the same time, I can see Abramovic wanting to spend now while other clubs hesitate and he's right to if they can spend now within FFP rules

Fraser Forster being linked with a "Top 4" side. I don't know who the top 4 is nowadays but he would be a solid back for anyone except Manchester United.

Adam Lallana has signed a short term extension with Liverpool, probably one of many such extensions with the proposal to push back the opening of the transfer window and the restarting of the season.

Such a weird career... looked incredible at Southampton, and then next to nothing since.
