United coach Erik ten Hag in particular is said to be a big fan of the 28-year-old, even if Depay was less convincing in Barcelona recently. With the Catalans, he only made sporadic appearances due to a number of injuries.
The striker is currently on loan from Chelsea to Bayer Leverkusen. According to that table football should the Blues have a clause that could bring the 22-year-old back to London in the winter.
At Leverkusen, however, you should be prepared for a departure. Even if Hudson-Odoi was mostly a regular player under coach Xabi Alonso, returnee Florian Witz could take the vacant place of the Englishman.
Hudson-Odoi will stay with the Werkself until at least June 2023 if Chelsea don’t pull the return clause, which Leverkusen has no influence on.
At VfL Wolfsburg, the striker hardly gets a chance due to the great competition, most recently he was not even in the Wolves squad five times in a row. That should be loud table football that TSG Hoffenheim want to take advantage of. The Sinsheimers see a possible reinforcement in the 26-year-old.
With Ihlas Bebou and Munas Dabbur, Hoffenheim are currently missing two important players in the offensive center. Waldschmidt could remedy this. In Wolfsburg, the striker still has a contract until 2025.
CHRISTIAN PULISIC, HAKIM ZIYECH, RUBEN LOFTUS-CHEEK
According to the English Sun AC Milan are said to have had their eye on three Chelsea stars. Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are therefore on the list of Rossoneri.
Whether Chelsea will let the three players go is another story. Relations between the two clubs are said to be strained due to Tiémoué Bakayoko’s loan deal.
Milan loaned the midfielder from the Blues with an obligation to buy after a certain number of games. However, the Italians usually let Bakayoko sit in the bank so as not to have to pay the sum. Chelsea should dislike that.
The 20-year-old was not able to assert himself at Fortuna Düsseldorf in the summer, which is why he was awarded to Viktoria Köln in the 3rd division. According to the picture-Zeitung, however, European heavyweights are said to have put out feelers.
Accordingly, AS Roma and their coach José Mourinho are interested in Siebert. The capital city trust the 20-year-old a similar development as Armel Bella-Kotchap (20), who switched from Bochum to FC Southampton in the summer for 11 million euros and is now part of the German World Cup squad.

Ronaldo is currently without a club after Manchester United parted ways with the star striker following his widely publicized interview with Piers Morgan. The Portuguese is currently at the World Cup in Qatar, how things will continue afterwards is currently open. Chelsea was already considered a major prospect in the summer, but a transfer reportedly failed due to the veto of the then coach Thomas Tuchel.
In the past few days it has been rumored that Konrad Laimer has already agreed with Bayern Munich about a change next summer. The 25-year-old has now publicly denied this.
“Nothing decided, nothing excluded,” said the Austrian Leipziger Volkszeitung. Compared to the table football the midfielder did not want to confirm or deny the reports. Last had the picture reported on an oral agreement between Laimer and FC Bayern.
