Chelsea could beat PSG to £111m signing thanks to key advantage


The summer remains an uncertain time for Chelsea in many respects. Todd Boehly is set to decide on Mauricio Pochettino’s future while fretting over potential spending breaches which could impact transfer activity.

There is no doubt that the squad needs further bolstering in several areas, with some mooting that another attacker could be sought after. Nicolas Jackson has scored 13 goals in his debut season but perhaps could have exceeded 20 if he had been more clinical.

Meanwhile, Christopher Nkunku has hardly had time to settle in thanks to his persistent injury problems and Fulham-loaned Armando Broja – like midfielder Conor Gallagher – could be one of the academy products sold for pure profit in the next window.

Chelsea would have to cut their cloth accordingly to cater for transfer needs in all areas, including in attack. Therefore, Victor Osimhen’s reported £111m price tag is likely to be too hefty for the Blues.
