BREAKING✅✅: Todd Boehly & Enzo Maresca Clash Over Chelsea Long Term Target, Boehly Insists On Spending £130m While Enzo Want Flop As His Striker – Sports News At It’s Finest

Fabrizio Romano has cast doubt on whether Chelsea will follow Todd Boehly’s reported advice regarding their transfer strategy this summer.

With another busy transfer window expected, Chelsea’s owners are now tasked with supporting yet another new manager. The club is on the brink of announcing Enzo Maresca as the new Chelsea boss, a decision made just over a week after parting ways with Mauricio Pochettino.

Reports indicate that Chelsea is prepared to bring in up to five new signings to provide Maresca with the strongest possible foundation for his first Premier League job. A key focus for the club has been the acquisition of a top-tier striker, a need that has been emphasized across multiple transfer windows. Victor Osimhen has frequently been linked with Chelsea, especially as he is expected to leave Napoli following their disappointing title defense.

Victor Osimhen was reportedly Todd Boehly’s top target. The Nigerian striker was highly prioritized by Boehly, who saw him as the ideal addition to the squad. However, according to Romano, Chelsea is currently not pursuing Osimhen. Romano tweeted that while Chelsea plans to sign a new striker for the upcoming season, there have been no negotiations or discussions regarding Osimhen, whether or not Romelu Lukaku is involved in the deal. He confirmed that Chelsea is not planning to move for Osimhen at this time, with both Lukaku and Armando Broja expected to leave the club.

Chelsea will likely have considered the performance of Nicolas Jackson, who had a respectable first season in the Premier League. This might influence their transfer priorities, as there is a belief that the team needs strengthening in other areas more urgently than in the striker position.

As Chelsea navigates the summer transfer market, their strategy appears to be shifting. The focus may now be on bolstering other positions to provide comprehensive support for Maresca’s tactical vision. The club’s decision not to pursue Osimhen could signal a broader approach to building a balanced and competitive squad for the upcoming season.
