Chelsea are poised to be active in the transfer market once more this summer.
The Blues have invested huge sums in their squad since the arrival of Todd Boehly, but they are yet to bring in a natural striker, hence their struggles in front of goal so far this season.
Christoper Nkunku will arrive this summer from Germany, but more firepower could be on the shopping list with Chelsea likely to be without Champions League football. Graham Potter's side are still in with a shot of European glory this term, but face a mammoth task against Real Madrid next month.
Here's the latest from Stamford Bridge.
Blues enter Osimhen race
Chelsea are ready to enter the race for the highly sought after Napoli star Victor Osimhen with Todd Boehly ready to splash the cash for the third straight transfer window.
A No 9 is on the American's radar, despite the imminent arrival of Christoper Nkunku, who was signed before being allowed to remain at RB Leipzig. Osimhen has helped spearhead Napoli's Serie A title charge, which is set to end with them as Italian champions.
Manchester United are among those to also be tracking the Nigerian. Foot Mercato have reported that PSG sporting consultant Luís Campos, whose future in Paris is unclear amid contact with Chelsea, is set to meet the agent of Osimhen during the upcoming international break with his future still unclear.
Boehly eyes Felix meeting
The Blues only signed Joao Felix on loan in January until the end of the season, but already Chelsea owner Boehly wants to see if the Portuguese forward could stay beyond that.
Atletico Madrid tied Felix down a new deal before allowing him to leave for several months. The forward cost the Spanish side more than £100m when they signed him back in 2019 but Relevo have reported that Boehly is an admirer and wants to see if a move is available. Chelsea will hold talks with Atletico in April with a decision expected in May.
Felix has only scored twice for the west Londoners but has still made an impression. "We are really happy with him," said Graham Potter earlier this month. "His approach, his ideas are excellent. His quality makes things happen. The fact that Joao can play in a few different positions is good."
Abramovich eyes Queen's land
Roman Abramovich didn't waste much time when he bought Chelsea back in 2003, sealing a swift purchase as he met with then owner Ken Bates in a west London hotel. The Russian billionaire would go on to have a seismic affect, such was his wealth.
The Blues won the title within two years of his arrival and enjoyed much success during his two-decade ownership. Abramovich had deep pockets and was ready to display his wealth, so much so that he'd identified Regent's Park as the ideal area of a new training ground, before being told it was owned by the Queen.
Bates told the Telegraph : “Abramovich hired a helicopter for a trip around London. He saw a park and said: ‘That looks like a good park. Let’s buy that for the training ground.' But he got told ‘I don’t think you will get that. That’s Regent’s Park and it’s owned by the Queen.'”
