Fabrizio Romano shares important update on 23-year-old Chelsea ace

Fabrizio Romano has reported that Nicolas Jackson is an important part of the Chelsea project and the Blues won’t be using him in any negotiations this summer.

Jackson arrived from Spanish side Villareal last summer and had a successful debut season as he scored 17 goals in all competitions, with 14 of those coming in the Premier League.

The Blues are in the market for a striker to compete with the Senegal international, and despite signing Marc Guiu from Barcelona, the club are reportedly still looking to bring another forward in.

Reports had emerged that during Chelsea’s contact with Newcastle over a possible move, Jackson was discussed as being part of the negotiations.

Romano has revealed that Jackson is an important part of the Chelsea project and won’t be used in any negotiations.

He took to X.com and said:

“Chelsea are not including Nico Jackson into any negotiation as he’s considered an important part of the project.
“Jackson, also very happy at Chelsea and only focused on #CFC.”

Jackson certainly exceeded expectations last season, and played a lot more than many would have expected given the injury issues that plagued the Blues throughout the last campaign.

The 23-year-old by his own admission should have scored more goals, and if he improves his finishing it feels like he’s absolutely a 20 goals per season striker.

Chelsea have been linked with a whole host of strikers from across Europe but are seemingly yet to identify who they are going to bring in.

The club insist that Guiu is going to be part of the first team plans next season, but it feels like Chelsea would be taking a huge gamble if they went with the 18-year-old and Jackson, with Nkunku also able to play through the middle if needed.

The Blues are looking to move on Armando Broja and Romelu Lukaku this summer with the pair attracting interest from a number of clubs, and now their Euro 2024 campaigns are over they can think about their future clearly.
