Sporting Lisbon have demanded at least €100 million to allow CHELSEA target Viktor Gyokeres to leave this transfer window

Nicolas Jackson seems to have the trust of his manager Mauricio Pochettino, but it does not look like that will stop the club from entering the market for a new No.9.

He has been impressive at time during his stint at Stamford Bridge, but he does not look like a forward that has the ability to push on and score 20-30 or even 40 goals a season for the Blues.

And that has led to constant speculation in the media over the past few months that we will once again delve into that transfer kitty and add another striker to that attack that has the ability to score goals and Gyokeres is reportedly on the list.

The Swedish striker has been in sensational form this season scoring 20 goals and providing 10 assists across all competitions in 24 appearances

Gyokeres would prove expensive if he were to leave Sporting mid-season, but a bid of €85m arrived for Gyokeres but Sporting have no intention of letting him go for anything less than €100 million, which is the release clause in his contract.

The reports add Manager Ruben Amorim is a huge admirer of the player and reasserted his belief that the club will not buckle unless the English side triggers his clause which will force them to part ways with the striker
