Frenchman Encourages Chelsea Board To Make Transfer Decision

Osimhen

Chelsea have been sent a surprising message about signing one of the two most in-demand strikers in Europe right now.

We have had another poor season under Mauricio Pochettino and may not end up getting back into Europe – which will be classed as a massive disappointment for the board.

That has led to alot of transfer speculation in the media which has claimed that the club will once again delve into that transfer kitty at the end of the season and add a new striker to that attack, with Victor Osimhen and Victor Gyokeres both linked with a move.

Gyokeres is banging in the goals for Sporting Lisbon this season with an impressive 26 – while Osimhen is still rated as one of the best strikers after helping Napoli win that Seria A title last campaign.

However – amid all the speculation – former player Emmanuel Petit has urged the club to stay away from the pair – Petit told Genting Casino: “I don’t think CHELSEA need Gyokeres or Osimhen. With Chelsea, there are so many players who are not playing to their level and can do so much more. I think Nicolas Jackson is one of them.

“He’s got lots of potential and has shown it in glimpses but needs to do more. I think Caicedo needs to too and so does the Argentine midfielder, Enzo (Fernandez). There are many players who don’t play the way they should, there’s no confidence, they’re lost on the pitch – and it’s the same with Jackson. He’s struggling as the team is struggling.

“He’s not the type to dribble past four or five defenders and score, he’s not like that, but when Chelsea improve as a team, he will improve. That’s why I don’t think Chelsea need to sign a striker – they need to stop spending so much.”
