Sousa for Chelsea
Thursday 27 June 1996
Juventus officials are due in London today to discuss the transfer of the 25-year-old Paulo Sousa, who is a close friend of Gianluca Vialli - Ruud Gullit's first major signing for Chelsea. Paulo Sousa's place at Juventus is under threat from the arrival of Zinedine Zidane from Bordeaux.
Fernando Couto - an influential figure in Portugal's run to the quarter- finals - has been interesting Manchester United, but Parma yesterday declared that the 26-year-old hard man is close to sealing a move to Scotland. "The transfer of Couto to Glasgow Rangers is almost completed," Riccardo Sogliano, the Parma coach said.
Sogliano also announced Parma's double signing of the midfield duo Rivaldo and Amaral from the Brazilian club, Palmeiras. Parma have paid pounds 6m for the 23-year-old Amaral and pounds 2.5m for Rivaldo.
Everton are considering Fenerbahce's offer for Daniel Amokachi, which is reportedly well below the pounds 1.6m asking price for the 23-year-old Nigerian striker.
Wimbledon have signed Duncan Jupp, Fulham's Scottish Under-21 international full-back, for pounds 200,000.
