Meanwhile, Oguchi Onyewu, Standard Liege's American defender, has been linked to several of Europe's big clubs, including AC Milan, Real Madrid, Lyon and now, Chelsea. Will Sherling, the player's agent, confirmed Chelsea's interest on Tuesday; the British media reports that his transfer fee would be in the neighborhood of $3.95 million.
