Brazilian wants Premier League move as Chelsea look to wrap up deal for beguiling star
Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Ajax star Anthony ahead of the summer transfer window
Now it is no secret in the media that Thomas Tuchel will be looking to improve his squad in the summer and add a few players that can bring quality, excitement and goals to his side
The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic have not banged in the goals that Tuchel would like, and to be honest, their performances at times have not even impressed the loyal fans, which has led to rumours that Anthony is now on the agenda
The Brazilian has 39 goal involvements in 71 Ajax appearances and a report by 90min suggests a move to the Premier League is on the horizon.
The beguiling Brazilian has emerged as key player for his club over the past 18 months and has featured regularly at international level since his first call-up in October last year.
90min has been told that we are keen on the player, while Manchester United’s interest is set to intensify due to the question marks over Mason Greenwood’s future following his recent arrest.
Clubs throughout Italy and Spain are also keen, but it is believed that player’s representatives have indicated Antony’s desire is to play in the Premier League.
The Premier League is the best league in world football and it is also a massive step up for the man to make should he come here. He has to make the right choice on his future or he could find himself sitting on the bench
We are a great club that play Champions League football and challenge for every trophy that is on offer, so we would be a very good club to sign up with.
