Chelsea striker target has now ‘dropped out of consideration’ for The Blues

One striker target that Chelsea have been looking at has reportedly now ‘dropped out of consideration’ for The Blues.

The club are clearly looking to sign a new striker in the summer transfer window when it opens at the end of this season. They are being linked with many different names at the moment and there has been some pretty big rumours going around regarding certain names.

One of those is Sporting striker Viktor Gyokeres, who has been banging the goals in for fun in Portugal this season. He wouldn’t be cheap though due to a large release clause, and that is apparently the reason why he has not dropped out of consideration for Chelsea.

That is according to reporter Ben Jacobs, who has just put out his latest exclusive inside Chelsea column for my own website, SPTC, today.

Jacobs also says that Chelsea didn’t make any offer for Gyokeres in the January window.

He says: “Viktor Gyokeres is not a player Chelsea bid for in January, despite reports in Portugal, and it’s understood he’s dropped out of consideration as it stands. Perhaps one reason why is because Sporting want €100m.”
