Chelsea looking to sign player who is tipped to become better than Caicedo

Six Sports

Reports claim that the Blues are looking to further bolster their midfield in January. According to TalkSPORTChelsea are monitoring Amadou Onana of Everton.

Chelsea have been linked with Onana before. They were reportedly keen on signing the €50 million midfielder in the summer.

Does Onana to Chelsea seem realistic?

Yes the Blues were interested in the Belgian international this summer, but that was before they made a number of midfield signing. Chelsea completely revolutionized their midfield over the summer for the present and the future.

The club splashed out a record fee for the second successive transfer window to bring in Moises Caicedo from Brighton. They had already forked a then club record fee for Enzo Fernandes in the winter just before. Chelsea even signed and kept Lesley Ugochukwu in the squad. They even snatched Romeo Lavia from under Liverpool‘s noses. He is yet to make his debut in a Blues shirt but he’s close to returning.

Another midfielder seems excess to their needs, but if Chelsea are still linked, them maybe some people at the club rate Onana very highly. It has also been claimed that Everton believe he has both the ability and potential to exceed Caicedo.

The situation at Everton

The situation surrounding Everton is something elite sides are surely keeping an eye on. Sides may look at Goodison Park as a potential firesale could take place off the back of their financial misdemeanors.

The Premier League recently handed them a 10-point deduction. This would surely have put Cheslea on note for any potential charges they could face for their own issues. However, until now it does not seem as if it has had an effect on their transfer plans. They are still linked for a move for an elite striker in January.
