Chelsea keen on to make big money move for Bundesliga No.7 forward

Chelsea have been somewhat very quiet during January transfer window so far, despite purposely going to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to get their ban reduced.

This, of course, does not mean that they are not working on contracts, and things could be happening in the background.

However, the Blues supporters were expecting to be going through much more of a whirlwind of a transfer window by now.

The latest report from journalist Duncan Castles though, claims that The West London club owner Roman Abramovich is keen on to make a big-money signing this winter.

Speaking via his Transfer Window Podcast, Castles believes said the signing would be Jadon Sancho this summer to replace Brazilian forward Willian, who’s a deal is running down and ends after the 2019/20 season ends.

He does though touch upon the fact that they have resources to make the additions during the January transfer window, however, are unsure whether they want to spend big on one current players, or bring in a less expensive forward leaving money available for other areas centre-back and left-back positions.

He said:

“I’m told they are focusing on wingers at present.

“One of those strong options for them is Jadon Sancho.

“My understanding is the club, i.e. Roman Abramovich and Marina Granovskaia, are very keen on taking Sancho.

“They’re keen on making a statement signing now that they are able to work in the transfer market again and have a lot of resource to spend in this window.

“They see taking a young England international, who has very high status in England because of what he’s achieved at Borussia Dortmund and in the national team, as a good way to go forward.”
