‘They had contacts’ – reliable insider Fabrizio Romano confirms Blues trying to hijack Arsenal target


Chelsea have entered themselves into another transfer saga this summer, and it involves at least two other English clubs, possibly more, writes the Chelsea News.

The club have found themselves in a striker situation themselves, with Romelu Lukaku now looking like he will return to Inter Milan this summer, or at least that is what is currently being worked on by all parties involved.

Chelsea will want a replacement, and there have been a number of names mentioned there. The latest being Manchester City’s available striker, Gabriel Jesus, who will 100% leave the club this summer, according to a report from Fabrizio Romano speaking to Caught Offside today.

“There are five clubs that have contacted Gabriel Jesus’ agents, not just Arsenal,” Romano explains. “Chelsea have had contacts in recent weeks.

“Gabriel will leave Manchester City – 100%, and Arsenal want him at all costs as priority striker, Manchester City are asking about €50-55m for the Brazilian: in the coming days the situation will be clearer.”

Arsenal seemingly pushing the hardest to sign him here, but Chelsea are in for an attempted possible hijack of the deal and will probably at least be getting Jesus thinking.

Maybe he will want to join his national team mate at Chelsea?
