Wow! Chelsea to make move for impressive Premier League (Not Kane) stars as alternative to £130m Haaland
Shock reports have claimed that Chelsea could make a shock summer transfer move for Kelechi Iheanacho if they cannot get a deal done for Erling Haaland.
Haaland is a player that has been talked about alot over the past few months as all the games biggest and best clubs are all reportedly eyeing up a summer transfer move to try and prise him away from Borussia Dortmund.
The Blues are almost certain to be on the lookout for a new attacking talisman to lead the line in advance of a renewed domestic title bid next season, with Timo Werner, Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham all failing to score the amount of goals that Thomas Tuchel would like.
Both Manchester clubs are also in need of a striker and harbour a shared interest in signing Haaland, suggesting that Chelsea could lose out in the battle for his signature, and the Daily Express have claimed that the Blues could make a move for Iheanacho
Iheanacho has enjoyed an explosive rise to prominence since the turn of the year, displaying brilliant pace, a strong technical ability and a keen eye for goal to help Leicester reach the FA Cup final and close in on securing their top-four berth.
Questions were hanging over the Nigerian’s ability to perform at the highest level when he was deemed surplus to requirements by City, but he has proven his doubters wrong at the King Power Stadium and could benefit from another chance to establish himself at a ‘big six’ club
Iheanacho is certainly a player that has impressed this season and there is no doubt that he has shown great quality, but he is certainly not the player Chelsea need to score 30-goals a season.
He will never be that type of striker, yes he will be good, but he will not be a Haaland
