According to a report from Foot Mercato, Arsenal will face Chelsea in Elye Wahi. The 20-year-old striker made a strong impression on the experts when he wore the Montpellier club shirt. In the 2022/2023 season, Wahi played explosively with 19 goals and 6 assists after 33 shoes on the field.
The Gunners see Wahi as a potential transfer target in the context of Folarin Balogun’s likely departure. Besides Arsenal, Chelsea are also closely interested in Wahi. On the Montpellier side, the French team valued the striker born in 2003 at about 30 million euros.
The current contract between Wahi and Montpellier will expire in 2025. The French striker is considered a cheap target with Arsenal. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano commented:
“His agent has held talks with four or five big clubs. We know that he likes Arsenal very much.”
On the Chelsea side, the west London team needs to add some 9 levels to solve the scoring problem. Besides Wahi, the Blues are also linked to Dusan Vlahovic, Victor Osimhen…. Another solution for Chelsea is to give Romelu Lukaku a chance.
