Apart from the recent signing of Jorginho, Chelsea have been pretty relaxed in the summer transfer window.

Hopefully, with the transfer window open for just over another week, the club will now move swiftly to tie up any loose ends and bring to Stamford Bridge the targets Maurizio Sarri has identified.

One such target, according to the popular tabloid publication, the Daily Star, remains the Bayern Munich centre-forward, Robert Lewandowski.

Indeed, the 29-year-old Polish international has had the pleasure of being described as Sarri’s top summer target.

However, if Lewandowski does leave the Bavarian club, it is also suggested that Chelsea will have to persuade the player that West London is a better career option than Real Madrid, which, we believe, would be quite a challenge.

We’re also of the opinion a move for Lewandowski would, quite probably, be funded by the sale of our record signing Alvaro Morata.

Elsewhere, continuing on the striker front, it is being reported by the news vehicle, the Sun, that our Belgian striker, Michy Batshuayi, has been told by Sarri that he still has a future at the club despite apparent interest from Crystal Palace and the Spanish outfit Valencia.

Batshuayi, 24-years-of-age, spent the second half of the season loan at Borussia Dortmund where he was enjoying a good spell until it was rudely interrupted by an ankle injury.

Continuing, our World Cup-winning striker, Olivier Giroud, is another who is keen to remain at the club.

According to the news source, the Daily Mail, Giroud is keen to fight for his place despite having talks with the French club Marseille.

And, we should point out that the future of Tammy Abraham, who spent last season on loan at Swansea City has still to be determined, here at Vital Chelsea, we suspect another loan spell beckons for the young England international.

As you can see, there’s still a lot up in the air when it comes to the striking positions at Chelsea Football Club, has anyone any idea how it might pan out?

  • Jus’ like Hudson Odoi is going to exhibit superior skill and unleash his full footballing talent under Sarri.
    I fully believe and envisage Batshuayi being the main striker under Sarri’s tutelage!We have a great team, and a great manager!
    All we need to do is cut ties with the disloyal elements ASAP and cash in on a number of players who have become too comfortable, while their sell by dates are rapidly approaching….
    Cahill, Drinkwater, Zappacosta….should all be heading out the exit.
    Teams are already speaking about us, inspire of a indifferent season, but we always bounce back! We are the mighty Blues!
    Ampadu, Odoi, Ola Aina, Bakayoko, Barkley….will all reap the benefit of a great footballing manager

  • We will now play the attacking football of the Pep Guardiola & Jurgen Klopp type, not counter attacking football of Jose Mourinho & Antonio Conte …. it will be interesting to see what results this brings , however as a fan i’m feeling more excited about this season than the past few.
    Unfortunately on the transfer front we have left it too late yet again & imho it will be difficult to do major deals late into the window. I agree about selling fringe players like DD before they lose further value.
    Callum Hudson-Odoi is a brilliant prospect & the boss must find a way to start him ….. Ross Barkely looks like the Ross Barkely of old ….. lets see if he can retain his place once the team is upto full strength …. at least for Sunday i think they have done enough to start.

  • Sunday & Man City will be the first major test …. we wasted too much time in appointing Sarri but he’s still done pretty good in this short period of time …. hoping it all comes together in time for Sunday & we can play superb football for a full 90 minutes ….
