Breaking News: In the wake of a £55 million FFP setback, Chelsea must find a solution to their striker dilemma. Jackson’s replacement has been “confirmed.”




Given that Chelsea’s issues in the front line continue, it is possible that Mauricio Pochettino will have a number of striker targets in mind for the month of January. In spite of the fact that both Nicolas Jackson and Christopher Nkunku were brought in during the summer’s transfer window, the Blues have had a substantial amount of difficulty scoring goals, particularly with the latter player making only four appearances since making the move from RB Leipzig.

In addition to missing the first few months of the season due to a knee ailment, Nkunku is currently sidelined due to a hip condition at the same time that Jackson is away competing in the African Cup of Nations with Senegal. Because of this, Cole Palmer started in the starting lineup for Middlesbrough in the Carabao Cup match, which Middlesbrough won 1-0. Armando Broja was placed on the bench.


Since that defeat, a significant transfer opportunity has presented itself for Pochettino and his team, which might involve the signing of Alexander Isak, a striker for Newcastle. While Jackson is abroad, there appears to be a spot in the matchday squad that is open for grabs. However, Chelsea may have just confirmed who will be filling in for the 22-year-old player.

The boost for Isak to Chelsea

The Premier League teams Manchester City, Everton, and Arsenal are not the only ones grappling with some problems regarding Financial Fair Play (FFP). Because of the amount of money that has been spent in the most recent transfer windows, it would appear that Newcastle is unable to sign any players during the January transfer window. The financial issues are so significant that it is possible that a marquee first-team star will have to be sold.

Due to the fact that the Magpies paid Real Sociedad £55 million for the services of Alexander Isak, the apparent candidate is Bruno Guimaraes. However, Alexander Isak might also be sacrificed. Isak is widely regarded as a proven goal-scorer in the Premier League. Since moving to Tyneside, he has scored 23 goals in 49 games, and he is clearly considered to be part of the team.

The confirmation of Jackson’s replacement

The most recent transfer announcement is yet another example of Chelsea’s newfound fondness for signing wonderkids, which has become quite the trend since the club’s new ownership took over. It was announced that Dujuan Richards would be joining the Blues as a new player during the summer of 2017, however he was not allowed to formally join the senior squad until he was 18 years old.

Although he celebrated his birthday in November, the date has finally arrived, and on Friday, he stated that he will be moving to west London. In an interview with Chelsea’s official website, Richards expressed his happiness at being present. “It has always been my dream to sign a professional contract, and seeing as how I now have the opportunity to do so here at Chelsea, it is difficult to put into words the feelings that I am experiencing.” “I simply cannot wait to get started,” she said.
