Football transfer rumours: Arsenal lead the race for Yannick Carrasco?

Today’s fluff is trying to get up that great big hill of hope Sevilla want Álvaro Morata and are ready to offer £5m to take the player on loan right now, plus £35m to make the deal permanent in the summer, in order to convince Chelsea to do business. The Blues will try to replace him with Gonzalo Higuaín, also on loan, and will also attempt to sign a midfielder to replace the supposedly departing Cesc Fàbregas, with Zenit’s Leandro Paredes and Cagliari’s £45m-rated 21-year-old Nicolò Barella under consideration.They would do well not to move too soon, mind, because having agreed to leave for Monaco and waved a tearful farewell to fans, Fàbregas is still waiting for the Ligue 1 club to agree a fee with Chelsea, leaving the whole business ripe for potential collapse. Like Morata, Tammy Abraham is a Chelsea striker who wants to leave on loan, though his departure is complicated by the fact he is already on loan. With his temporary stay at Championship side Aston Villa going thrillingly well, Abraham is demanding another chance to prove himself in the Premier League.
