Jackson’s arrival could result in Chelsea looking to offload Armando Broja.
CBS reporter Ben Jacobs has told GIVEMESPORT, Chelsea are ‘informed on the situation’ after looking to sign Villarreal star Nicolas Jackson to Stamford Bridge.
Mauricio Pochettino is looking to bolster the squad he has inherited ahead of the 2023/24 season getting underway.
As per The Athletic, Jackson has already shown he is keen to complete a move to the West London club by agreeing personal terms ahead of a potential switch.
The report adds the Blues are planning to start negotiations with the La Liga club, where the Senegal international has a release clause worth £30million written into his contract.
It is added that Chelsea’s pursuit has intensified after holding discussions with Jackson’s representatives. Villarreal are reluctant to sell the striker, but Chelsea are willing to activate his release clause, leaving the Spanish giants helpless.
Transfer insider Dean Jones recently spoke to GIVEMESPORT that Jackson’s arrival could result in Chelsea looking to offload Armando Broja.
Jacobs told GIVEMESPORT: “There is truth in that one. He is one of the names on the list, and they are informed on the situation.
“There’s a release clause as part of the deal, so it’s something that any club could move on at relative market value.
“He’s in good form, but I would refer to the player as one of many on Chelsea’s list, rather than necessarily the name they’re going to go for.”
