Chelsea Open Talks for £103m Striker

With failure to register serious threats in front of goal, the Stamford bridge outfit are poised to invest heavily in a prolific striker this month.

Co-controlling owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali are prepared to make additional transfers in the January transfer window, even though they have already spent nearly £1 billion. Their goal is to salvage a season that has been marred by goal droughts, the most recent of which was a 1-0 loss to Middlesbrough in the Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg Tuesday night.

Despite the team’s most recent defeat, it’s important to stress that head coach Mauricio Pochettino’s job is currently not thought to be in jeopardy.

The club fully supports Pochettino and is willing to spend more money on transfers in an effort to infuse new life into a squad that has frequently looked weak and uninspired.

Even though Pochettino had little say in the summer moves, he is hoping for a bigger role this month. If prudent, the Argentine’s advice would be valued by the club’s recruitment team.

Chelsea hopes to sign a new striker and find a new left-back in the upcoming month. There will be specific attention paid to the strategy for bringing in a new attacker, particularly in the chase of Victor Osimhen of Napoli, who has a £103 million release clause and is a prolific striker.

According to people close to Osimhen, he’s open to joining the Blues. But given the high cost, this transaction is more likely to move forward in the summer, especially with Osimhen’s participation in the Africa Cup of Nations.
