15-goal star ‘compelling Blues signing’ – Elite star keen join Chelsea – Powerhouse to be next £100M Chelsea signing
Here is a roundup of the top Chelsea news and gossip that we think you guys may have missed –
Serhou Guirassy, the talented striker plying his trade with VfB Stuttgart, emerges as a compelling signing for Chelsea, according to reporter Iomie Stanley.
Reports in the media that CHELSEA could try and make a move for Victor Osimhen in the January window, a man that they wanted to sign in the summer window and a striker that is easily regarded as one of the best in the game.
He has been in contract talks with Napoli for quite some time now, but has been unable to agree a new contract as the Italians are playing hard-ball and do not want to offer him the kind of deal that he feels he fully deserves.
However – it has been revealed in recent days that Osimhen is closing in on signing a new contract with Napoli – meaning that it will be very difficult for the likes of Chelsea to get a deal done for the man, and Guirassy is now reportedly on the list.
The 27-year-old has been one of the standout performers in the Bundesliga this season with 15 goals and is only behind Harry Kane in the scoring charts of the Bundesliga.
Couple that with his astonishingly low £15.1m release clause and it seems certain that offers from the likes of Chelsea will arrive in the January window and take him to that next level in the game.
Reporter Iomie Stanley told icfootballnews: ‘One of the standout reasons for considering Guirassy as a valuable addition to Chelsea is his physical presence. Standing at 6 feet 2 inches tall, the French forward possesses an imposing stature that makes him a formidable force in aerial duels.
‘Chelsea, despite having a diverse attacking unit, lacks a towering striker who can be a reliable target for crosses and set-pieces. Guirassy’s ability to dominate in the air could provide the Blues with a different dimension in their attacking approach, especially when faced with well-organized defenses.
‘Guirassy’s goal-scoring record is another factor that makes him an attractive prospect for Chelsea. Known for his clinical finishing and composure in front of goal, the striker has consistently found the back of the net throughout his career. His capacity to score different types of goals – be it with his feet or head – aligns with Chelsea’s need for a versatile and reliable goal-scorer. In a league as competitive as the Premier League, having a player like Guirassy who can consistently convert chances into goals is a valuable asset.
Versatility is a key trait that Guirassy brings to the table. While primarily a center-forward, he is capable of playing in various attacking roles, including as a second striker or even on the flanks. This flexibility aligns with Chelsea’s tactical fluidity under Mauricio Pochettino, where players are often required to adapt to different positions and roles within the team.
‘Guirassy’s ability to operate in multiple attacking positions could provide Pochettino with tactical options, allowing the team to maintain unpredictability in its offensive strategies.
‘Additionally, Guirassy’s work rate and ability to contribute defensively make him a well-rounded player. His willingness to track back, press opponents, and link up with midfielders could make him an ideal fit for Pochettino’s system, where every player is expected to contribute both offensively and defensively.
‘In terms of age, Guirassy is entering the prime years of his career, making him a player with a balance of experience and potential for further improvement. CHELSEA, a club known for its strategic approach to transfers, could see Guirassy as a long-term investment capable of making an immediate impact.’
FERGUSON NEXT £100 MILLION SIGNING?
Brighton star Evan Ferguson has been making waves in the football world with his impressive performances and goal-scoring prowess, and he could be the next £100 million signing reporter Iomie Stanley has claimed.
He told icfootballnews: ‘One of the most compelling reasons for Chelsea to pursue Ferguson is his exceptional talent and potential. At just 10 years old, he has already demonstrated a level of maturity and skill that belies his age. His ability to score goals with both feet, excellent aerial prowess, and a keen eye for positioning make him a formidable force in front of goal.
‘Furthermore, Ferguson’s playing style aligns well with Chelsea’s philosophy of attacking, possession-based football. His versatility allows him to play as a central striker or on the flanks, adding depth to Chelsea’s attacking options.
‘The Irish youngster’s physical attributes also make him a valuable asset for Chelsea. Standing at an impressive height with a strong build, Ferguson has the strength to hold off defenders and create space for himself and his teammates.
‘His presence in the box during set-pieces could add another dimension to Chelsea’s attacking prowess, providing additional goal-scoring opportunities from corners and free-kicks.
‘In addition to his on-field qualities, Ferguson’s mentality and work ethic have been widely praised by coaches and teammates alike. Chelsea, a club that values professionalism and commitment, could benefit from having a young player who is not only talented but also dedicated to constant improvement. Ferguson’s willingness to learn and adapt to different playing styles could make him a seamless fit into the Chelsea dressing room.
‘From a strategic standpoint, signing Evan Ferguson aligns with Chelsea’s emphasis on building for the future. The club has a history of nurturing young talents and integrating them into the first team successfully.
‘While there might be other suitors for Evan Ferguson’s signature, Chelsea’s reputation, resources, and track record of developing young talents could give them a competitive advantage in securing the services of this rising star.
‘If the transfer materializes, it could be a defining moment for both the club and the player, setting the stage for a successful partnership that benefits Chelsea’s immediate and long-term objectives.’
OSIMHEN KEEN ON CHELSEA MOVE
Napoli striker Victor Osimhen is reportedly keen on joining Chelsea, according to journalist Dean Jones.
Osimhen is one of the most talked about players in world football right now and a man thay the Blues are reportedly very keen to try and acquire during the January window as they seek to add an elite forward to the attack.
But CHELSEA have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Osimhen, after the Italians came out in the media and revealed that the big Nigerian is very close to agreeing a new deal with the now.
Now Romano is saying he doesn’t expect him to leave Napoli this winter, and only a crazy offer will get a deal done for the man.
However – as talk about the Nigerian’s future continues to ramp up about a potential £120million move, Jones has opened up and claimed that the big man would be interested in a move to Stamford Bridge.
“I think he would be keen on going to Chelsea,” he told GiveMeSport. “I do think that there is something in the stories that he might choose Chelsea. I do believe that.
“Will Chelsea go and sign him is the big question. A month ago, there were strong signs that Chelsea would go aggressive again in the market and try to sign a striker. But I think a lot will have to do with how Christopher Nkunku comes into this team now.
“It will depend on what kind of impression he makes from a goalscoring perspective, how he influences the make-up of that frontline and what he can bring out of other players.”
It is a shame that we may never see Osimhen in the Premier League – but once he signs that new deal – it will be even harder to get a move done that is for sure.
