Why Chelsea are ahead of Atletico but behind Arsenal in race for goal machine

Victor Gyokeres is not looking to stick around in Portugal.

When teams were interested in January he made it clear he wanted to stick around and battle for the title – and since then he’s been smashing in goals at quite some rate, doing his part to make it happen.

But nobody is under any illusions about this summer – he will want to get his big move, and Sporting will want to cash in while he’s hot property.

TeamTalk today claim that he’s already “looking forward” to a return to English football in particular. Last seen in the Championship with Coventry, a return to play for Arsenal or Chelsea would be pretty special for him.

It certainly puts other, non-Premier League teams interested (like Atletico Madrid) at a disadvantage, although Chelsea are still surely pretty far behind Arsenal in the race given they will be able to offer Champions League football right away.
