Chelsea, Newcastle United and PSG join Rafael Leao transfer chase

Rafael Leao-AC Milan

AC Milan forward Rafael Leao has been linked with a potential move away from the Italian Serie A champions this summer.

The 22-year-old Portuguese attacker has helped the Italian giants win the league title this past season and his performances have caught the attention of other European heavyweights.

The 22-year-old scored 14 goals across all competitions for Milan last season and it appears that the likes of ChelseaNewcastle and Paris Saint Germain are keen on securing his services.

It is no secret that the Blues will have to improve their attacking options if they want to challenge for the Premier League title next season and signing the Portuguese attacker could prove to be a wise decision.

Timo Werner and Romelu Lukakau have been quite disappointing for the Blues so far.

The 22-year-old can operate anywhere across the front three and his versatility will be an added bonus for the London club.

Meanwhile, Newcastle will have to find an upgrade on the likes of Joelinton and Leao would be an exceptional long term acquisition for them.

Paris Saint Germain are expected to part ways with Mauro Icardi this summer and the AC Milan forward could be an ideal replacement.

It will be interesting to see where the 22-year-old ends up eventually.

Milan will be desperate to hold on to him beyond this summer but they could be tempted to cash in on the player if a significant offer comes along.

All three clubs have the financial muscle to table a considerable offer for the forward and it remains to be seen how the situation unfolds over the coming weeks.
