Chelsea have reportedly made a £26.5m (€30m) bid to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Noni Madueke in the winter transfer window.

The highly-rated forward has gone on to score 20 goals in 79 first-team appearances for PSV, with his form attracting interest from Premier League giants Chelsea.

Graham Potter has had some serious injury issues to a number of first-team players already this season and knows that he needs to add more depth in order to get through the next few weeks, and months.

The Blues have been one of the busiest sides this month, having already splashed the cash to sign David Datro Fofana, Andrey Santos, Benoit Badiashile, Joao Felix and Mykhaylo Mudryk as Graham Potter looks to strengthen his squad for the second phase of the season.

That has led to reports that Chelsea have made their moves to try and sign the talented Madueke – who has been impressing over in the Dutch League over the past few seasons.

According to ESPN, Chelsea have now made a £26.5m (€30m) bid to sign Madueke in the winter transfer window.

The newspaper claims PSV have no interest in selling the 20-year-old but that has not prevented Chelsea tabling a formal bid after making an enquiry last week.

Chelsea are buying all these young talents that have done nothing in the game really – and will not do anything for a few seasons – and Madueke is one of those type of talents.

Yes he has done well – in the DUTCH League – and yes he has impressed – but this is the Premier League – Potter needs players that are ready to make a difference now – not in a few seasons.
