Chelsea is considered one of the teams that heated up the transfer market this summer. They showed their will to rebuild the team by recruiting Nicola Jackson, Christopher Nkunku, Moises Caicedo, and Romeo Rabia.
The results compared to the investment are not satisfactory. Chelsea is currently in 14th place with 5 points (1 win, 2 draws, 2 losses) after playing 5 games in the league this season.
Lack of scoring power emerged as the biggest problem. Chelsea only scored 5 goals in 5 league games. There were only three teams in the league that scored fewer goals than Chelsea.
Strikers can never be free from responsibility. Jacks, who joined this season, only scored one goal. Nkunku is unable to play due to injury.
As a solution, we are preparing to recruit new players again. According to this report, Chelsea has reportedly selected Osimhen as a new striker who will consistently take responsibility for scoring goals.
Osimhen is fully qualified to join Chelsea. Last season, he led Naples to victory together with Kim Min-jae. He scored 31 goals in 39 games across all competitions, becoming the world’s best goalscorer.
The problem is the high transfer fee. The media said, “Napoli demanded 172 million pounds (about 281.3 billion won) for Osimhen’s transfer fee this summer. “Chelsea must make economic efforts,” he said.
We are also preparing in case Osimhen’s recruitment fails. Chelsea are said to be keeping an eye on Ivan Toni and Ollie Watkins as the next best options.
