But the club has resisted all overtures and this afternoon insisted it’s very unlikely anybody will be sold despite keen interest.
Speculation of a deal involving a player swap plus cash started earlier today and although club insiders are keeping names of those involved to themselves there was denial that there had been much activity and interest behind the scenes.
However, a top insider told ClaretandHugh exclusively: “Nothing is likely to happen and 100 per cent not players plus cash. The quicker this window shuts the better for us.”
Enner Valencia (pictured above) has been touted as interesting Chelsea, Diafra Sakho has been regularly linked with Liverpool and Aaron Cresswell has also been watched.
However, our source declared: “There are lots of offers, but we’ve turned them all down as we do not want to lose players at this time.”
