A Chelsea fan pundit has been speaking about the summer transfer window and has tipped the club to sign a striker who has banged 162 goals in his career already.
We all know that Chelsea ideally need a new number 9 in their squad, that is evident for all to see and has been something that has been ignored at the club for many transfer windows now.
Surely in the summer they will finally address this, and there is one striker that Chelsea fan pundit Paul Merson, has tipped to potentially join the club.
All the talk is around both Ivan Toney and Victor Osimhen this summer, who look to be the biggest profile and most available number 9’s in the upcoming window.
Chelsea and Arsenal are both likely to be in the market for a new striker in the summer, so they could well end up battling for both of these players.
In words picked up by HITC, Merson said:
“I think Chelsea could be in the running to snap him [Ivan Toney] up, but they’ve also been linked with Victor Osimhen, so you never know. I thought Arsenal would make a move for [Toney] in January, but that didn’t happen.
“It all depends on how the rest of the current campaign goes, but as things stand, I have no clue where he lands up.”
