With manager Thomas Tuchel scouting the market for a new striker currently, Chelsea are chasing ‘new Neymar’ – Kaio Jorge.
The football news today, at Daily Star Sport, takes a look at Chelsea’s top transfer priorities this summer’s transfer window.
And Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is on the lookout for a top class number nine.
As they did in the Champions League final, Chelsea look to overhaul Manchester City in the Premier League next season.
And while the Blues may have toppled Pep Guardiola’s side in Champions League, the Citizens bested them in the Premier League top-flight.
The west Londoners finished in fourth place, a mammoth 19 points adrift from title winners City.
In order to bridge this gap, Chelsea need to sign an elite level striker. They need a forward consistently capable of finding the net week in, week out.
Jorginho was the club’s top-scorer this season. But all of his scant seven Premier League strikes all came from the penalty spot.
So, its not a stretch to say that Chelsea suffer in goalscoring figures.
Thus, someone like how Edinson Cavani is for Manchester United would work wonders for the Blues.
Chelsea Are Chasing ‘New Neymar’
And Tuchel’s search for a new frontman this summer transfer window has led him to Santos wonderkid Kaio Jorge. The young player is already called the ‘new Neymar’.
The German tactician is not alone in seeking the South American star’s signature because Arsenal are chasing Jorge too.
