As revealed by Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea will prioritize signing a central striker in 2024. In addition, they will also focus on recruiting more central defenders.
Italian journalist reported:
“Recruiting a striker will be Chelsea’s priority in 2024but they also see centre-backs as part of their plans for the January or summer transfer window, depending on opportunities.”
“Both Chelsea and Man United (as revealed in September) are monitoring talented centre-backs across Europe.”
As for the striker position, it is easy to see that the two names most strongly linked to Chelsea during the past time are Ivan Toney and Victor Osimhen. While Brentford is said to be valuing Toney at 80 million pounds, the Blues are expected to spend around 100 million pounds to convince Napoli about Osimhen’s case.
In the context that Thiago Silva will almost certainly leave at the end of the season, Chelsea’s consideration of buying another midfielder is clearly a completely reasonable move.
