One reliable journalist has been speaking this weekend on some of Chelsea’s transfer plans for the next couple of windows.
We know the club have spent a lot of money in the previous two windows, but they will still be looking to bring a couple more players over the next window or two, and maybe even more if we go into next summer and they feel that there are still gaps in the squad or positions they can improve on. And of course, they will also be looking to sell players and one or two could actually still go in the January winter window.
But it is the striker position that they are still looking to improve in during 2024, whether that is in January or in the summer.
And journalist Ben Jacobs has been explaining the latest on that this weekend. Jacobs says Chelsea want an elite striker.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jacobs said:
“I think that Chelsea sources have always made it clear that they’re not going to rush on a striker and that means it could be January, but if not, it will be the summer. This is partly down to a faith in Jackson and Armando Broja, it’s partly down to the fact that they’ve not seen yet the impact of Christopher Nkunku. He’s likely to add goals and if he can get into double figures, and Jackson is on course to get into double figures, then maybe Chelsea can wait until 2024 to see how their current squad develops.
“But there’s always a balance because as positive as it is at Chelsea and as good as they were against Manchester City, and they were excellent against Arsenal as well, they’re also mid-table and European football and Champions League football is still really important. So if the right opportunity presents itself in January that could make all the difference and help keep the project on track. That is the conundrum in all of this, but Chelsea don’t just want any old striker, instead they want an elite striker and there aren’t that many of them around.”
