Chelsea has to cough up £75million for Ollie Watkins

Chelsea would have to spend upwards of £75million to land Ollie Watkins this January.

The England international has already netted nine goals and provided five assists in 15 games across all competitions.

He is loving his life under the management of Unai Emery and has established as one of the finest strikers in the Premier League.

He is under contract with Aston Villa until the summer of 2028 and has been heavily linked with Arsenal and Chelsea ahead of the winter transfer window.

Neil Moxley believes Aston Villa wouldn’t consider selling Watkins for anything less than £75million.

He said: “He is an extremely good and useful person to have spearheading your attack. I was looking at his record and, in 130 appearances for Villa, he has over 50 goals now.

“He has a strike rate of 0.4, so that’s two every five games and four every 10. The top and bottom of it is he is guaranteeing you between 15 and 18 goals a season in the Premier League.

“If somebody was going to come along right this very minute and try to offer a fee to entice Ollie Watkins out of Villa Park, I think you’re going to be talking £75million-plus, if not a bit more because Villa would want to be able to source a replacement.”
