“I can tell you now” – Chelsea will sign “very expensive no.9” in January transfer window, says journalist

Posted by

Chelsea are reportedly set to sign a very expensive striker in the January transfer window, according to journalist Julien Laurens on ESPN.

The Blues are on an awful run at the moment, particularly in front of goal, and Laurens has told ESPN in the video below that he expects Todd Boehly will try again to fix things in the transfer market when January comes around.

Laurens mentioned Dusan Vlahovic as the kind of centre-forward he could imagine for Chelsea, though he didn’t necessarily specify if it would be the Juventus and Serbia front-man that they’d be going for.

Still, the journalist was baffled at Nicolas Jackson starting up front for CFC, so he felt confident that a big bid would be going in for a more established name this winter…

Jackson looks like he could be a promising young player who’ll one day be good enough to lead the line for Chelsea, but for now they probably do need someone else in that position.

  1. it’s not about buying expensive strikers. it’s about getting the the best of what you have. that comes down to coaching. Mourinho said when drog came to cfc he didn’t even know where the net was and look how he ended up. i can easily blame poch. never liked his style of coaching and does not fit the profile of a cfc coach. i tolerated him because i’m a blue since the early 1970’s. can it get any worst? i hope not. lets get behind the team. blue is still the color

    1. I have faith in Poch to turn this group of players into a force but in fairness to him he has a brand new squad so getting these guys to gell is no mean feat. We have Broja and Nkunku coming back soon so patience is key 👍

      1. Pochetino cannot turn anything around. Guardiola will never use players like sterling who finds it difficult to score consistently. Chelsea need a disciplined manager.

    2. It’s still early days, even the Drug man took some time before he got going. When a squad is new to themselves it usually take 10 to 15 matches to get out and 20 to 25 matches to get even

  2. It’s like bad luck for us. But I believe one day things will change for good. Chelsea forever, in bad time and good time, blue is the sky
