Tabloid re-links Chelsea with historical striker target this summer

Chelsea’s transfer business seems to have moved behind closed doors in the last week or so, as the big sources remain rather quiet on potential deals.

We had been hearing plenty about potential pursuits of Erling Haaland and even Achraf Hakimi in recent weeks, but things are rather under the radar since. This often means things could be being worked on without being in the public eye.

We know Chelsea are looking to sign a new big-name striker this summer, a real number 9, with Haaland touted as the priority.

However, alternatives will clearly also be looked at at the same time, and one player being looked at according to The Daily Express, is Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic.

They claim that the club are asking £35m for the striker, who has been rather inconsistent in recent years.

Chelsea have been linked many times before with trying to sign Jovic, but whether they will try again this summer or not I am not so sure.
