Chelsea should make a move for Wolves striker Raul Jimenez and here is why.
It is no secret that Chelsea are in need of adding another striker to the side, and despite all the talk that Edinson Cavani is the man that will solve all their issues, the Blues should look closer to home.
Jimenez has been brilliant for Wolves this season and is easily one of the best strikers that the League has to offer, and honestly would be a fantastic buy for the Blues. The video below gives an update on a possible deal and shows just why Chelsea should make the move.
Edinson Cavani could join Chelsea as Atletico Madrid are struggling to comply with La Liga’s salary cap.
There has been ALOT OF TRANSFER SPECULATION in the media about Chelsea and a deal for Cavani, with many media outlets believing that he will be the big named signing that Frank Lampard needs to make an impact on the side for the second half of the season.
But despite all the transfer speculation, there has been no deals in sight, and many Blues fans are wondering whether Chelsea will miss out on the big striker to Madrid, who are also reportedly keen to acquire the big mans services this month.
However, Chelsea have been handed a massive boost in their quest to land the PSG striker in the coming days from Italian Journalist Gabriele Marcotti, who believes the salary cap will stop any possible move to La Liga.
He told the Transfer Talk podcast: “You’ve got a tall, mobile, athletic striker. He turns 33 years old on Valentine’s Day, that’s the reality of it.
“So you’re kind of mad to give him anything more, in my opinion, than two-and-a-half years, max.
“Paris Saint-Germain say that they’re holding out for, what is it, €12m-€15m, €20m that they want.
“It seems like a ton of money given that he’s going to walk on a free at the end of the season.
“So it’s kind of like a game of chicken going on there. He was going to go to Atletico Madrid, as we know Atletico Madrid have serious issues obviously with the salary cap in La Liga, they have to move other players out.
“I don’t think he’d be a bad option for Chelsea.
“In fact I was speaking with a former Chelsea executive who made the point that Tammy Abraham is phenomenal but he’s played so much football.
“He’s carrying so much pressure. Maybe an impact striker, who could score goals regularly for you, take some of the pressure off him, allow him to grow and develop so that he could come back stronger and once again be the No 1 striker next year, would make sense.”
Chelsea have been urged to wrap up a deal for Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish.
