CHELSEA are reportedly considering a transfer swoop for PSV Eindhoven’s England Under-21 star Noni Madueke.
Blues boss Graham Potter is under huge pressure after a miserable run of results which currently sees his side way off the top four.
But he will be hoping that a busy month on the transfer front will help bolster his team ahead of the second half of the campaign.
It emerged yesterday that the Portuguese international forward Joao Felix is closing in on a shock move to Stamford Bridge after Chelsea verbally agreed a £10million loan for him with Atletico Madrid.
The Stamford Bridge club have already confirmed the arrivals of defender Benoit Badiashile from Monaco for £35m, £10.5m striker David Datro Fofana from Molde and 18-year-old Brazilian midfielder Andrey Santos from Vasco da Gama for £18m.
The 20-year-old winger spent four years with Premier League rivals Tottenham in their academy after a previous stint at Crystal palace but left for the Netherlands in 2018.
He has since made the breakthrough into PSV’s first-team and shone with an impressive 19 goals in 77 appearances.
Those displays have also earned him recognition on the international stage.
The Barnet-born ace has earned four caps at England U21 level.
Madueka is under contract at PSV until 2025, which means they are under no pressure to sell.
And that could see them demand much more for him than his reported £13m valuation.
However, this fresh article also claims that the Blues have another attacking options they are looking at.
Chelsea have allegedly stepped up talks with Borussia Monchengladbach to sign France forward Marcus Thuram, who is out of contract in June.
And that could allow them to snap-up the 25-year-old for a cut-price fee over the coming weeks.
