CHELSEA are now in talks with Atletico Madrid over a possible move for Samu Omorodion,

20-year-old Spain U21 international Omorodion  has only been with Atletico Madrid since moving in 2023 from Granada and his contract runs out in June 2028, having spent last season on loan at Deportivo Alaves, netting nine goals and providing one assist in 35 appearances

football.london understands. the club floated the idea of a £34million move – including add-ons – for the 20-year-old striker, but the Spanish giants quickly discouraged the west Londoners from making the offer. Atletico outfit are eager to renew Omorodion’s contract after he impressed on loan at Alaves last season.

He still has four years remaining on his deal,  Atletico are keen to fend off any potential suitors by offering him fresh terms. And amid the rumours, reporter Jake Stokes has claimed that we do not even need the striker.

He was quoted on Football.London: “I hadn’t heard much about Sam Omorodion until recently. Generally speaking, I don’t think the Blues need to sign another striker this summer – Nicolas Jackson showed great promise last season.

“Unless CHELSEA are bringing in world-class talisman, there’s no reason the Senegalese star shouldn’t lead the line under Enzo Maresca.”
