OYOGist.com has learned that Chelsea FC has been on a hunt since its transfer ban was lifted and with the possible exit of chelsea forwards willian, pedro, and possibly giroud and are reportedly hold an interest in signing Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik and will possibly try to find an agreement on a swap deal.
Following his amazing form at ajax , the 26-year-old has bagged 46 goals in 109 appearances since he joined napoli in 2016. The Polish international has had injury set backs but has still showed promise as he was still able to get some scoring done.
Chelsea reportedly added Milik to their possible transfer list in other to help them be stronger in the front.
While Tammy Abraham who returned from loan in aston villa has done a great job this season in leading the line for the Blues, there is still need for strong competition for the centre forward in Frank Lampard team with the uncertainty of Olivier Giroud’s extending his contract.
In turn, that makes sense of a potential swoop for Milik, although it won’t be cheap as La Gazzetta dello Sport reported earlier this month that he is valued at €40m by Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis. Chelsea could also bring back Jeremie Boga as part of a swap deal as napoli has shown intrest with his time in serie A for Sassuolo.
Chelsea apparently have a £12.8m buy-back clause on Jermain Boga, so they will have to buy him and the add him to the swap deal for the polish international that is if the clubs agree.
