Chelsea is positive about reaching a transfer agreement for about £45 million

Cole Palmer, a forward for Manchester City, is apparently a target for Chelsea, who are supposedly willing to pay around £45 million for his transfer.

According to journalist Nizaar Kinsella of the Evening Standard, Man City are currently seeking close to £50 million for the 21-year-old. But a deal might ultimately be reached.

Despite Palmer’s obvious skill, Pep Guardiola can’t seem to place him in the starting lineup. While the transfer is risky for both Chelsea and Man City, it also seems logical.

If the transfer is completed and the player goes on to realise the potential that is believed to be in him, City will be regretting their decision to let him leave. On the contrary, if he doesn’t, it will be the Blues who will be regretting their choice.

Chelsea might sign Cole Palmer soon

Having been instrumental in England’s Under-21 team’s victory in the European Championship this summer, he is still in high regard. If Palmer’s transfer succeed’s Chelsea will have spent more than £400 million this summer. Also, Chelsea will have spent more than $1 billion overall in the three transfer windows since the Boehly-Clearlake acquisition.

If Palmer arrives it might be Chelsea’s last purchase of the transfer period. Player sales will take precedence until Friday at 11 p.m. After so many departures this summer, including Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Chelsea could use the addition of more talent and depth to their attacking front.

Cole Palmer appears to be a player with a promising future. So, if Chelsea can get him for under £45 million, it might turn out to be a wise investment down the road. In addition, it’s now a significant bet on a player who is still relatively unproven. Cole Palmer obviously is also not near to being a regular for one of Chelsea’s competitors.
