Chelsea transfer news: Blues want £8m for Spurs and Liverpool target Ryan Bertrand
Chelsea have already rejected lower bids
Thursday 10 July 2014
Chelsea will not part with left-back Ryan Bertrand for less than £8m, according to reports.
The out of favour defender is reportedly a target of Tottenham and Liverpool who are understood to have had a £6m for Betrand rejected already.
It is also thought that both clubs are looking at Swansea left-back Ben Davies, with Chelsea refusing to lower their valuation of Bertrand.

Despite having more interest in Davies, Liverpool could improve their offer to Chelsea by sweetening the deal with a series of add ons.
Tottenham meanwhile were thwarted in their attempts to land Davies in a swap deal involving Gylfi Sigurdsson with Davies and Michel Vorm going the other way.
New Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly told chairman Daniel Levy that he would be happy signing either Bertrand or Davies, so it may well depend on Levy's notorious bargaining skills.
Chelsea meanwhile are thought to be pursuing a deal for Atletico Madrid left back Felipe Luis to replace the outgoing Ashley Cole.
