Chelsea seem to have identified their number one target to bring in this summer to try and address their regular goalscoring woes.

Benjamin Sesko’s name has frequently cropped up in discussions since last season came to an end, after one of their top targets from before has seemingly fallen by the wayside.

Reports have claimed recently that the Blues have ended their interest in Victor Osimhen right now, with Enzo Maresca apparently not too keen in bringing him in.

Sesko provides a far more affordable opportunity, as well as the prospect and potential of him becoming one of the best strikers in world football.

They do face difficulties in the form that they are going up against Arsenal for a deal, who certainly find themselves in a better position than the Blues right now.

Chelsea could offer Sesko more minutes than Arsenal

However, according to GiveMeSport, Chelsea could hold a key advantage over their rivals in the form of being able to offer him more regular game time.

Any striker making the move to the Emirates would be competing with former Blues Kai Havertz after he found a new level at his new club.

Nicolas Jackson progressing well

Chelsea will likely be noting the progress made by Nicolas Jackson in his first season in the Premier League, and how he became a key member of the side for the entire campaign.

However, it has to be noted that in front of goal he is not at his strongest, and it is certainly an area that he needs to improve on if he is to remain a key player at the club.

As far as other links to strikers go, there have been reports that they have registered interest in Manchester City star Julian Alvarez, after it was claimed that he is not too happy with his minutes at the Etihad behind Erling Haaland.
