Chelsea executives consider going after a “phenomenal” striker rather than Osimhen

After spending £900 million over the last four transfer windows, any notion that Chelsea will have a “quiet summer” has been swiftly dashed, as Todd Boehly looks to spend heavily on a goal scorer extraordinaire to address his striker woes.

Even though he has spent a lot of money since taking over in 2022, Boehly is still searching for the ideal number nine for his Chelsea squad. Numerous players have assumed the responsibility up front, making it difficult for Mauricio Pochettino to decide on a favorite. At this time, the Blues lack offensive firepower due to the injuries of Nicholas Jackson and Christopher Nkunku.

The West London team’s attempts to acquire a new number nine have so far failed. There have been rumors that they will attempt to sign Victor Osimhen, but that move has not materialized. Chelsea are among the many major teams trying to sign the Nigerian player and bring him to the Premier League.

It will probably be another season without European football for Chelsea next season. It is now speculated that the West London team will move past Osimhen and launch a surprise bid for a player with extensive Premier League experience.

The shocking striker move in Chelsea’s plot

Reports suggest that Chelsea have now shown interest in signing Harry Kane, the forward for Bayern Munich, a move that no one could have anticipated. It was first reported by Wayne Veysey of Football Insider. It also been revealed that Chelsea executives have learned that the Englishman is dissatisfied in Germany and is keen to return home.

According to Veysey, Bayern would only try to recover the £82 million that they paid for the star striker last year. It is a fair amount for a player of his caliber. This transfer would be a great value for Chelsea.

Kane made the switch to Bavaria this summer and has excelled at his new club. He has scored 24 times in just 21 Bundesliga games this season.

Speaking on his start at Bayern, the club’s sports director, Christoph Freund, sang the praises of the striker:

He is playing away from the U.K. for the first time and then he scores like that. The team also plays him into position. He is a phenomenon.”

In theory, the Kane to Chelsea deal makes sense. The Blues need a goal scorer whilst the former Spurs man may be eager to return to London. Another factor is Kane is the Premier League’s second all-time goal-scorer. All parties would benefit from this, except for Spurs supporters who would have to watch their all-time top scorer wear the uniform of their opponents.
