“The intention of Chelsea” – Fabrizio Romano gives clear striker transfer update

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has given a clear update on Chelsea’s intentions for a new striker in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The Blues will be looking to sign a new striker in the summer to come in and challenge Nicolas Jackson for that regular number 9 spot.

Sources: Chelsea still eyeing centre backs, winger noise intensifies, Osimhen off the menu – who now?

Jackson is the only recognised 9 at the club currently, with the expectation being that Armando Broja will be sold after a loan away in the second part of the last season.

A lot has been said around the kind of striker that Chelsea will be looking to bring in, but Romano has provided a clear update on that.

He doesn’t have names, but in his latest YouTube video, he does let us know the type of striker they are looking for.

Not Victor Osimhen

As above, Romano says: “The intention of Chelsea is to sign a young talented striker this summer, not Victor Osimhen in this moment.”

I mean, it’s rather odd. Osimhen isn’t exactly old is he? Personally I think not going for Osimhen is more to do with how much he will cost with a high release clause and high wages, rather than anything to do with his age.

Chelsea do like to buy young and bring in up and coming players, but buying another young striker will surely just stunt the progress of him or Jackson, with both players being young? One could block the other.

Of course, there will be many games to play this season with European football back at Stamford Bridge again. But I’d certainly be concerned about another young and unproven striker coming in when we already have Jackson.

The smart thing to do would be to bring in a more experienced and proven striker so Jackson could learn from them, and they wouldn’t block his progress as much.

  1. I am a die hard Chelsea fun.I think for now Chelsea needs a well established number 9 who can settle easy rather than inexperienced ones.
