Chelsea’s latest shock transfer target has emerged and it is none other than Jamie Vardy of Leicester City.
Chelsea are pulling through a rather confusing and turbulent January with multiple incoming and outgoing transfers in the club.
First there is the issue of holding on to players they want which includes warding off Bayern Munich from poaching Callum Hudson-Odoi. They also have offered Hazard a new deal, who has put it off for so long with Real Madrid circling in on him.
Then there are issues of deadweight players at the club who have to be moved on. This includes the likes of Danny Drinkwater and Victor Moses. Lastly there is the impending departure of Cesc Fabregas which will leave Chelsea’s holding midfield thin.
The last and biggest dilemma however, is that of the striker. Neither Morata nor Giroud have done well and Sarri wants a new number nine. It is being reported that Morata will leave on loan but Chelsea will need a new striker with Higuain, Wilson, Icardi all lined up.
The latest addition to the list is Jamie Vardy. Whether Leicester will agree to sell their prized asset to the Blues remains to be seen.
