Chelsea consider move on Barca keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Arsenal and Manchester United fight for Willian

Chelsea are contemplating an ambitious move for Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, according to the Daily Telegraph.
It's no secret that the Blues are interested in replacing Kepa Arrizabalaga during the summer after a poor run of form throughout the campaign, with Frank Lampard considering the possibility of including Kepa in a deal that would see 28-year-old Ter Stegen make his way over to Stamford Bridge.

Barca aren't really interested in letting him go, and they're more invested in the idea of extending his contract -- which is set to expire in June 2022. For now, Chelsea are happy to sit back and see how those negotiations play out.

Among the other keepers linked as Kepa's successor are Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak; Dean Henderson, who is on loan at Sheffield United from Manchester United, and Andre Onana of Ajax.

-Arsenal are ready to offer a new contract worth £250,000-a-week to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, says the Daily Telegraph.

Aubameyang's deal expires in 2021 and the Gunners realise how important the Gabon striker is to their future plans.

-Arsenal are reportedly confident of beating Man United to the signing of Chelsea star Willian, according to ESPN Brasil's Bruno Vicari.

Willian's contract is due to expire on July 26 and Chelsea are only willing to offer the 31-year-old a new two-year deal, while he wants three.

As a result, the Gunners are keen to add him for nothing this summer and are evidently getting closer to an agreement.

-Paris Saint-Germain are ready to respond to Real Madrid's Kylian Mbappe interest with a bid for Vinicius Jr, newspaper Sport reports, saying the Brazilian winger is "an obsession" for PSG sporting director Leonardo.
