The striker problem at Chelsea is giving coach Mauricio Pochettino a headache as their scoring performance in the Premier League is not good. While strikers like Nicolas Jackson or Raheem Sterling have not yet met expectations, other options like Christopher Nkunku and Armando Broja are sidelined due to injury.
Therefore, the Blues targeted Ligue 1 talent Elye Wahi to strengthen their attack, but in the end, the French striker chose to join Lens.
Sharing with journalist Fabrizio Romano about his decision to refuse Chelsea to join Lens, Elye Wahi expressed: “Honestly, I don’t want to sign with Chelsea.
Frankfurt is even closer to my service than Chelsea. However, they seemed hesitant because they wanted to wait for Randal Kolo Muani’s decision, so after that, everything happened as you know.”
At the age of 20, the French striker does not seem to want to risk leaving the Ligue 1 environment and aims to continue to make a name for himself in the continent.
Last season, Elye Wahi contributed 19 goals to Montpellier. He possesses a skillful technical foundation, remarkable acceleration ability and great opportunistic moments.
