Having officially announced the signing of centre back Anthony Rudiger from Roma and Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco being on the verge, the last few days have been very fruitful for the current Premier League champions in terms of transfer business.
Chelsea are still in dire need of a striker, as Diego Costa’s future looks uncertain in London, and after United hijacked the Lukaku deal, Conte realises that Chelsea do not have a lot of options when it comes to established strikers.
A forward who can score 20 odd goals is a necessity for any team competing for the title, and the Italian manager will hope to fill the void as soon as possible.
A recent video posted by soon to be new boy Tiemoue Bakayoko has recently been the subject of speculation among Chelsea fans after keen-eyed supporters noticed that the video was ‘liked’ by two of the most sensational strikers in world football currently – Dortmund’s starlet Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Monaco’s teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe.
Both Mbappe and Aubameyang have been linked to Chelsea in the past, and in the Club’s desperate hunt for a striker, their latest Instagram activity can be a small hint to what might unfold next. The fact that Aubameyang follows many Chelsea players on Instagram has enhanced the fan’s excitement over the issue and adds fuel to the already rife transfer rumours.
Chelsea will hope they sign a prolific striker for the next season in their quest to retain the PL title and compete for the Champions League.
