Chelsea linked 19 year old is a talent – but a gamble too

Caughtoffside are always ahead of the curve when it comes to transfer rumours, and today is no different.

They are reporting on the growing swell of whispers about Leeds United striker Wilfried Gnonto and a rumoured move to Chelsea. The 19 year old has adapted well to the Premier League in his first season despite his tender years, and one imagines he’s the kind of profile that the Blues are looking to bring in up top as they look to finally find a solution to their issues up top.

Arsenal and Manchester City are also linked, but both have pretty serious solutions in attack, and Gnonto will certainly fancy his chances of getting into Chelsea’s team a little more.

The issue for Chelsea is that they need someone who can come in and thrive right away, they can’t have another season set aside for development.

Gnonto could be that man – but is he really ready? Our scouts will be watching.
