Chelsea were heavily linked with strikers during the January transfer window. Tammy Abraham was seen as the number one for the lead role, with Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud playing second fiddle. Giroud actually looked to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge.
However, no incoming deal was completed and the Frenchman remains at Stamford Bridge, with his contract expiring at the end of this season. In actual fact, before the enforced postponement of football due to the coronavirus, the 33-year-old had become first-choice following an injury to Abraham.
Even so, the Blues are still looking to make long-term changes to their striker options. The latest comes from a report from calciomercato.com. The Italian site suggests that Chelsea have an interest in Napoli striker, Arek Milik.
The report also pours cold water on rumours suggesting Juventus already have a deal in the place for the Polish attacker. However, former Blues boss, Jose Mourinho is supposedly interested in the 26-year-old.
Milik joined Napoli from Ajax four-years-ago from for a fee of €35m. His time in Italy has been quite fruitful when he’s had a chance to impress.
This season the Pole has scored twelve-goals, in 22-appearances in all competitions. Last season was his best witu 20-goals in 47 appearances. Overall he has found the net on 46-occasions, in 105-appearances. Although to be fair his appearances were limited during his first two seasons at the club.
No price is mentioned in the report, but it does state his current contract runs out at the end of next season. A new deal, doubling his current salary has been offered, but nothing has been agreed as yet.
