Chelsea are ‘in talks’ with PSV Eindhoven winger Noni Madueke’s agent regarding a potential move to the Premier League, according to journalist Simon Phillips.
Graham Potter’s side have recently signed Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix on loan until the end of the season, but Todd Boehly isn’t showing any signs of slowing down when it comes to wanting to make even more attacking reinforcements.
The Times have claimed that the Blues are contemplating a move for the 20-year-old Madueke, with Fabrizio Romano confirming that the club hierarchy are huge admirers and are keen to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Phillips revealed that Chelsea are currently holding discussions with Madueke’s representatives, but admitted that the club are worried about his consistent previous injury problems.
“I was told that Chelsea are in talks with his agent as well to try and sign him.
“But he has a bad injury history, and obviously, this is something that Chelsea are concerned about. So, I don’t really know what stage those talks are at right now.”
TIF thoughts on Madueke to Chelsea…
Chelsea already have a significant number of players sidelined and they won’t want to add any more casualties to that list, but recruiting Madueke is a no-brainer of a decision should the opportunity arise.
Madueke also has two trophies to his name so would be able to add a much-needed taste of success to the squad this month with the aim of helping the Blues secure a top-four finish.
