Tottenham eye Chelsea forward, Man Utd linked with Villarreal winger and list of PL games fans can attend

After scoring the winner for the Blues in their 2-1 victory over Rennes on Wednesday, the France international has been linked with a move across London.

Tottenham and West Ham United are interested in signing Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud in the January transfer window, per CalcioMercato.

The French forward is reportedly eager to leave the Blues in January to bolster his chances of getting into his national team’s Euro 2020 squad next summer, even though Frank Lampard continues to insist that the former Arsenal striker has a future at Stamford Bridge.

However, with the likes of Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi ahead of him in the pecking order, Giroud is seemingly aware that he won’t be able to garner much game time at the London-based club and is seeking a move elsewhere in one month’s time.

Aside from West Ham and Spurs, two clubs who made approaches for Giroud over the summer as well, European giants Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan are also reportedly keeping tabs on the forward’s situation at Chelsea.

The report linking United with the Villarreal winger also claims that Chelsea, Everton and Leicester City are also keeping tabs on the Nigerian.

Manchester United are eyeing a swoop for Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze, according to reports coming out from Spain.

The 21-year-old forward has caught the eye of the Red Devils’ higher-ups since breaking into Villarreal’s first-team two years ago and is under contract with Unai Emery’s side until 2023 as part of a deal that includes an eye-watering £71m release clause.

However, La Razon claims that United are unperturbed by the player’s valuation as they join a host of clubs keeping tabs on the versatile forward, including fellow Premier League outfits Chelsea, Wolves, Leicester City and Everton.

The forward’s potential move to the Old Trafford would give plenty of options to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, given that Chukwueze has the ability to play on either flank.

After the British Government’s decision to let teams based in Tier 1 and Tier 2 areas host fans in their stadiums, Ligalive looks at games supporters could attend in the coming weeks.

British Government has announced that matches taking place in Tier 1 and Tier 2 areas will be allowed to host 2,000 and 4,000 fans, respectively, after the lockdown ends on December 2. The majority of the Premier League, however, has been placed in Tier 3, meaning that most matches will still be played behind closed doors.

Yet Brighton and Southampton will now be able to admit fans, along with clubs located in London and the Merseyside area. That means that fans of Liverpool, Everton, West Ham, Chelsea, Arsenal, Fulham, Crystal Palace, and Tottenham will now be allowed inside home stadiums. Here’s a list of Premier League games fans can attend in the coming fortnight:

December 5: Brighton Vs Southampton; Chelsea Vs Leeds; Liverpool Vs Wolves; Tottenham Vs Arsenal; West Ham Vs Manchester United

December 12 and 13: Crystal Palace Vs Tottenham; Everton Vs Chelsea; Fulham Vs Liverpool; Southampton Vs Sheffield United; Arsenal Vs Burnley
