Medical in the next 24 hrs: Chelsea on the verge of signing their own answer to Olise - opinion

Todd Boehly is known for his love of transfers, so it should come as no surprise that Chelsea has been among the busiest teams during the summer transfer season thus far.

Only yesterday night, a few hours after the formal arrival of Brazilian sensation Estevao Willian—who will play for the Blues next year—was it announced that Jonathan David was the club’s top objective.

Departures ought to be plentiful as well, as Ian Maatsen’s move to Aston Villa is now virtually complete. But things haven’t been perfect for Enzo Maresca, the new CEO.

One of their top targets, Michael Olise, was ruled out of a move to Stamford Bridge on Friday night. Rather, where is he going? Bayern Munich has now quickly intervened.

Boehly and company saw this as a commercial opportunity, but since Chelsea already has a surplus of wingers, it is unlikely that they will go out and sign a ready-made wide player to replace him.

What’s on the agenda for next? They’re gaining ground on another promising talent, after Estevao.

the most recent information about Chelsea’s transfer plans
It will surely be devastating to lose out on Olise, especially for fans who were hoping to see one of the Premier League’s most promising young wingers suit up in blue for the upcoming campaign.

In fact, an agreement is thought to be finalised when it is completed. ‘Chelsea are hoping to clinch the agreement for Omari Kellyman to join from Aston Villa today,’ stated Fabrizio Romano on Sunday morning.

It’s thought that the involved parties have agreed to pay a fee of £19 million.

As the last touches are made to a move, Matt Law of The Telegraph has separately stated that a medical is scheduled on Monday.

How Kellyman and Olise are comparable
If signing Olise isn’t possible, how about looking for a player with comparable qualities and a tonne of potential? That’s what Kellyman would provide them with.

First of all, you might be wondering why in the world Chelsea is paying a rather high amount to sign a guy with so little experience.

Just two of the 18-year-old’s six appearances for Aston Villa’s senior team have been in the Premier League. However, we have previously been very confused by their transfer business.

Nevertheless, this can prove to be a very wise acquisition for Maresca, the new boss.
