Chelsea’s attack clearly needs to be strengthened, as they rely heavily on Nicolas Jackson. However, the performances of this young striker are not convincing enough.
According to transfer expert Romano, the Blues have targeted Victor Osimhen or Ivan Toney. These are the two top strikers, and promise to be ideal pieces for many teams. If Toney can leave Brentford in January, recruiting Osimhen from Napoli will be very difficult, when the Italian team is bidding more than 100 million pounds for their key player.
“For Chelsea, a new striker will definitely be discussed before January. A new centre-back could also be an option for them when the opportunity arises. I can’t name names at the moment, but they have the squad excellent transfers, so they will definitely find good options,” Romano said.
“For the striker position, we already know about Chelsea’s links with Ivan Toney and Victor Osimhen. Surely either of them would be top signings for them. However, for Osimhen, I think it will be difficult for him to leave Napoli in January.”
