Chelsea to offer €150M to sign target – Blues free to sign £43M star – Chelsea ready to sign Italian
Here is a roundup of the top Chelsea news and gossip from icfootballnews that we think you guys may have missed today –
Chelsea are firmly intent on signing a world-class striker sooner or later, and the big favourite for this is Napoli’s Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen.
Osimhen has ready established himself as one of the very best strikers in the game right now and a man that is tipped to make a big transfer move in the next couple of windows.
He helped Napoli win their first League title for many seasons and led the scoring charts in the process – with reports suggesting that the Italians now value him at around the £170 million mark.
CHELSEA have somewhat struggled in front of goal so far this season, with summer signing Nicolas Jackson only finding the net six times so far this season.
According to a report by TEAMtalk, they would be willing to put a record offer of more than €150 million on the table.
That amount reflects the London club’s desire to have a high-calibre striker who can make a difference in the Premier League ahead of next season, in which Chelsea also hope to be playing in Europe, being a key reason to be able to convince the African attacker to leave Diego Armando Maradona to try his luck in English football.
Osimhen is one of the very best players in world football, there is no doubt about that guys, so If Chelsea manage to wrap up a deal, they will be signing a 30 goal a season striker.
It is a big claim to make that he could go to CHELSEA, but they have the money and the space for a player like him, so if he does come onto the market, that Blues board would be massive fools to not make a move for the man that is for sure.
CHELSEA EYE CHIESA DEAL?
Chelsea could be set for a bidding war over Juventus star Federico Chiesa ahead of the January transfer window.
Chiesa is a transfer target for CHELSEA, Arsenal and Man United, According to Reports -. As the winger is “very ambitious” about a move to the Prem and believes top-flight English football will enrich his career.
United have suffered immensely in the flanks this term with Antony underwhelming and Jadon Sancho frozen out. Meanwhile, the North Londoners have heavily depended on Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli in their wings.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for the attacker in recent windows as there is alot of speculation in the media suggesting that Mohammed Salah will be leaving the club at the end of the season
The Italy international could assist Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino to add more quality into his side and allow him to rotate with players, but also give him different options in that attack when things are not working.
IcFootballnews Opinion –
Chiesa is proven at the highest level of the game, has the ability to play in a number of positions, is a man that is made for the big games, and if he wants to come to the Premier League, CHELSEA could be the ideal move to make.
The only problem with his potential arrival is that he is a starter, he will want to play every week, play every minute of every match and will not want to be backup.
Add that to his massive asking price, his big wages and the fact that Chelsea are keen to improve other areas of the pitch – we cant see this move happening in the January window unless Pochettino really needs Chiesa signed.
CHELSEA FREE TO SIGN CHERKI?
It has been claimed that Lyon are willing to listen to offers for Chelsea transfer target Rayan Cherki.
Cherki is a man that is now on the agenda of the CHELSEA board – as he fits the criteria of being one of the most exciting young players in the game that has the ability to develop into one of the best stars in the game.
It has been claimed that Lyon do not want to sell – but that has not stopped the reports in the media that Chelsea will make contact over a possible deal for the talented star in the coming windows.
WHAT IS THE LATEST –
The 20-year-old French midfielder from Olympique Lyonnais, has become a top target for several big-name teams in Europe, including Chelsea and Newcastle United, as his contract with Lyon nears expiry on June 30, 2025.
Aware of Cherki’s contractual situation, Lyon are willing to consider offers for the player in the next transfer window, and According to Fichajes.net, the latest information they have set a price of around 25 million euros for his transfer.
WILL CHELSEA MAKE A MOVE IN JANUARY?
What we have seen from that Chelsea board in the last couple of windows, is that if they want a player, they will pay whatever it takes to get a transfer deal done.
Cherki is a real talent guys, he could be a brilliant addition to that Blues squad if they reignite their interest in the winter window, which we believe will happen as they simply cannot stop themselves from buying players.
The transfer plan from CHELSEA is clear – but maybe it is time to add a few experience players to the side?
However – for the money that is being talked about, the lad is certainly a player that Poch would love to have in the side.
