Sports Journalist hints at potential Chelsea blackout on former target this month
One journalist has hinted at a surprise Chelsea u-turn back towards a former target this month as the days of this window come to a close next week.
Time is running out, and clubs are now scrambling around in order to get any late business done before next Wednesday.
Chelsea could well be quite busy, and links and rumours with them today have really taken off.
A great place to follow that all along is on The SPTC live blog ran by journalist Simon Phillips, and he has been putting out loads of sourced information on there today.
Of course, he has been speaking a lot about strikers today with links to Jhon Duran, Karim Benzema, and Callum Wilson all addressed.
But it is the information on former target Viktor Gyokeres from Sporting that is most interesting, seeing as it looked like that one died down. Well, it hasn’t….. And could even spark back up this month.
Phillips says: “Been told to not rule out Gyokeres for THIS WINDOW! They’ve been running the data on him all month are really impressed. Release clause around £80m-£85m. Chelsea enquired but were told they would have to pay it in full. But it’s never been dead…..”
