Report: Chelsea consider move to sign ‘brilliant’ striker who’s scored more PL goals than Eden Hazard.



The ‘brilliant’ striker has scored more Premier League goals than Eden Hazard, according to reports. Chelsea is considering investing in this player.Callum Wilson of Newcastle United has surfaced as a prospective acquisition for Chelsea.

This morning, transfer rumors suggested that this might be the case.Callum Wilson, who is 31 years old, exemplifies the term “proven striker.” In 215 Premier League appearances, he has accumulated 86 goals during his tenures at Newcastle and Bournemouth.


Notably, Eden Hazard, a legend for Chelsea, concluded his career in the Premier League with 85 goals in 245 appearances.Chelsea, according to FootballTransfers (quoted on Thursday morning), holds Newcastle forward Wilson in high regard.


The Blues are reportedly contemplating matching Newcastle’s asking price of €21 million (£18 million) for the English attacker during the January or summer transfer windows.


Mauricio Pochettino’s squad believe the 31-year-old can contribute valuable character and experience to Stamford Bridge, according to the report.They are inclined to deviate from the transfer policy and accept youthful talent for their future endeavors.


When Chelsea evaluate Callum Wilson

This rumor of a potential transfer has undoubtedly surprised us.


It would be fantastic to see Chelsea acquire a new center-forward prior to the close of the January transfer window, preferably one with a track record of scoring.


Wilson, who has scored eight goals in 20 appearances for Newcastle this season, checks a number of boxes as a viable short-term option. Furthermore, he might be a shrewd investment for less than £20 million.Nonetheless, the fact that the Magpies forward has suffered from numerous injuries over the course of his career is our primary concern.


Alan Shearer referred to Wilson on X as “brilliant”; he is competent enough to arrive at Chelsea and score goals. Still, are you willing to assume the risk regarding his physical fitness?


We do prefer him over the linked alternatives that have been suggested. Consider the 20-year-old forward for Aston Villa, Jhon Duran.


According to the Telegraph, Chelsea are contemplating an offer to acquire Villa youth Duran.


From our perspective, we would rather assume a risk with Wilson than with Duran’s lack of experience.
