Former Chelsea winger Gaël Kakuta, 27, is the subject of transfer talks from Huddersfield Town, according to an L’Équipe report.

RMC believe that Ligue 1 side Amiens have actually agreed a fee to sign him, for between €3m and €4m, but the former Chelsea man is currently failing to agree personal terms, which could potentially open the door up for Town.

The DR Congo international joined Chelsea in 2009, but only featured 16 times over a six year spell with the London club.

Man United not put off key target after £133m valuation

Manchester United have moved into the driver’s seat in the race to sign Serbia international Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

That valuation put off United’s rivals, including Juventus who said they are not prepared to go above £62m for the midfielder.

23-year-old Milinkovic-Savic impressed for Serbia in an attacking midfield role despite his side bowing out in the group stages.

He has just come off a stellar season at Lazio with many calling him the best player currently playing in Italy.
