Chelsea continue to be linked with a number of new players ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Stamford Bridge.

Thursday morning's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup:

Kai Havertz 'asks Bayer Leverkusen to accept Chelsea bid'

Kai Havertz is reportedly desperate to join Chelsea during this summer's transfer window and has asked Bayer Leverkusen to accept an offer from the Blues.

The Germany international is one of the most sought-after young talents in the game, ending the recent Bundesliga campaign with 12 goals and six assists in 30 appearances.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Havertz has informed Leverkusen of his desire to swap clubs ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, but it remains to be seen whether Chelsea can agree a price.

The attacker has now entered the final two years of his contract at BayArena.

Leaked clip shows Chelsea forward Willian in Arsenal kit

A leaked clip from video game PES 21 has given Arsenal supporters further hope that their side are closing in on a deal for Chelsea attacker Willian.

The Brazil international's contract at Stamford Bridge will expire later this month, and he is widely expected to leave the Blues in search of pastures new.

Arsenal have been strongly linked with the 31-year-old, and a deal might have been confirmed in a trailer for the next Pro Evolution Soccer game.

The seven-second clip was posted by The Sun and shows Willian in Arsenal's new adidas shirt, although there has not yet been any official confirmation from the Gunners.

Chelsea closing in on 'the next Virgil van Dijk'?

Chelsea are reportedly working on a deal for teenage defender Xavier Mbuyamba following his release by Barcelona.

The Dutchman, who has been compared to Liverpool and Netherlands defender Virgil van Dijk due to his playing style, left Camp Nou last month following the expiration of his deal.

Mbuyamba is believed to have trained with Chelsea during his time at Camp Nou and according to the Daily Mail, the Blues are currently in talks to sign the 18-year-old.

Mbuyamba only made three appearances for Barca in last season's UEFA Youth League but is believed to be the subject of interest from a number of major European clubs.
