‘Chelsea to sign very expensive striker in January – Frenchman announces!
Chelsea are reportedly set to sign a very expensive striker in the January transfer window, according to journalist Julien Laurens on ESPN.
CHELSEA have spent over £1bn since Todd Boehly’s consortium bought the Premier League club last year, with the likes of Moises Caicedo, Romeo Lavia, Cole Palmer Nicolas Jackson and Christopher Nkunku among their marquee summer signings.
But they have a squad that is for the future, they have been signing players that will not make the immediate impact that Mauricio Pochettino wants, and have been signings players for crazy money that has shocked the world.
But it is no secret that Pochettino would like that Chelsea board to splash the cash and bring in a striker that will make an immediate impact, and will also send a message to the rest of the Premier League.
WHAT HAS BEEN SAID –
Laurens has told ESPN (Via MSN) that he expects Todd Boehly will try bring in an expensive striker for Mauricio Pochettino after failing to get the Blues boss the kind of striker that he wanted at the club
Laurens mentioned Dusan Vlahovic as the kind of centre-forward he could imagine for Chelsea, though he didn’t necessarily specify if it would be the Juventus and Serbia front-man that they’d be going for.
Chelsea can keep splashing the cash and spending all this money on players that have potential, but they have an average squad, they dont have too many players that could walk into another Premier League side and that is a worry.
CHELSEA should be spending their money on players that can make a difference now – and the board will have a great opportunity to sign a player that is ready to make an impact at the club.
They need to stop worrying about the future as the present does not look good.
